Zoo Station's bass line bugs the fucking shit out of me. It was alright to play out of key for BTBS, but on ZS, it sounds like shit. Try again, bass player.

On the flipside, to bring up an argument Bonnie was talking about a week ago or so, if they'd gone out with that bang, Adam wouldn't be around to say that those are his favourites.

I dunno. Bottom line: If it's craptastic, I won't be surprised, but I'm not going to get my hopes up that there's gonna be another "Bad" or Streets on the new one.
I am hoping that it at least won't disappoint me as much as Bomb did.

I never even notice the guitar in it.

Someone elsewhere raised the interesting point that while Eno seemed to be the leader of the Eno and Lanois pair around JT/AB, Lanois has been the leader this decade - especially note that he was involved in HTDAAB but Eno wasn't. I wonder if there's something in that ...

Wouldn't surprise me, given how the albums then were pretty good but now...

I think there is. I remember the Class Albums thing from Pop era about JT. Lanois was kind of taking over at that point. The weird thing is, the vibe I got from them was the only reason they kept Danny around is Larry threw a tantrum cause Lanois likes the drooms and, as we all know, it's supposed to about the drooms. I dunno, I could've made that up, but that's what I remember.

Plus, Lanois seems to complement Larry's mindset about making hits, stuff that's over-produced and all radio-friendly. Eno, as we know, is all about the soundscapes and the effects and the music's ambience. Good luck finding much of that lately.

Lanois or Eno?

I only have Another Green World by Eno. As for Lanois, heard a couple of his songs and didn't think he was for me so I didn't bother investigating further.

Eno's brilliant. Hands down. I meant Lanois. OMFG. He's like...I dunno, I can't think of anyone else as musically useless.

Eno is brilliant. I've never heard anything by Lanois.
