Maybe you should read the quote again.

I love how Wikipedia seems to disagree with all of us, though seems to be more on my side: Retro - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Did you just bash the title track right there? That's got to be treason somewhere.

Since the title track is the opener and I just bashed the last five ... no.

That's why I asked. It seems a little weird to pick a certain song as a cutoff point for album quality, so I assumed you were saying that Card Cheat was the only song you liked.

damn, now i don't know if my eyes are fucking with me or if you did a quick edit

and yeah, i agree with wikipedia too. you hear of retro nights at clubs and you think "oh, 80s music" - but i was just saying what retro is in the case of this competition.

Oh, well, there's some songs prior to The Card Cheat that should have been cut as well, such as Rudie Can't Fail. But after The Card Cheat, there's nothing really notable and I always simply stop the album there.

I made a blog entry today. I am excited about my blog entry. Not because I made an entry, but because of the content of the blog entry. Which I made today.

The good news for you all? I might be off of the blue crack for over a week. Holla.

Quick edit; see Ashley's quotage.

Why on earth is Interference making up its own definition of retro then? I might as well start passing off my Dunedin Sound stuff as prog then.
