No, but give me a couple album names you think I'd dig, and I'll add it to my ever expanding list.

I think U2 should try this philosophy, though.

Ritual de lo Habitual is like art, while Nothing Shocking is just....beautiful. They both are, but in different ways. Stephen Perkins = best drummer ever. Shit's amazing. Might take a couple of listens, but they really are American's greatest band.

I kind of agree. One could argue they did this with Pop, but that was unintentional. I can see how a concerted effort to write and record quickly would be something new for them.

Wow, I was gone for like... 10 straight pages.

I was busy finding the ugliest things on a site of ugly slutty clothes, to snark on.

Like this:



It was in the DRESSES section

Cool, thanks. Any other recommendations? Clear holes in my musical studies?

Plus, I think Waters [and maybe Gilmour ] were ambitious and figured Syd was just too loopy?
While that's probably true to a certain extent, I think the acid and the (possible) mental illness is what really affected him. If it was just a case of him working better with people he knew, Madcap should have been a better album than it actually is... Even with the help of Waters and Gilmour on the production team, it's missing the spark that Piper and the early singles had.

I'm perfectly sane, or so I'd like to think.

He doesn't find his stride until his fourth album, Shadows Collide with People, which I'd argue is his best.

Ah. That explains it. Maybe I'll try his fourth, then.

Holy crap, it's 4:15 AM! If I'm still awake by 4:30, The Pros And Cons Of Hitch Hiking is going on immediately. (That album would probably be André's worst nightmare.)

It's very Wall/Final Cut-ish?

His first two are experimental/avant-garde. His third was electronic, and then by his fourth he finally came back to rock. It's sort of pop rock, almost, very acoustic guitar based alternative rock.

Ok so I guess I'm not listening to QUad. yet. My little brother is very freaked out by not only the Heath Joker from commercials and riding the Dark Knight roller coaster at Six Flags, but also because he watched the 80s batman tonigth and apprarently just seeing the joker make up on Nicholson was enough to make him panicked. I tried to explain to him that mom thinks Jackie's cute, and I think Heath is cute, and there's nothing scary about either of them, but apparently Makeup speaks louder than words.

As soon as he's asleep, I'll listen to Quad, and tackle drink #3
