I enjoy that era too. That might be the hardest any of their shows rocked.

But if you're a professional musician, surely, SURELY you can tell the end of UTEOTW sounds like complete dogshit in the mixing. It's got nothing to do with not seeing how you can improve, and everything to do with having ears.

Is it really so hard to look at the album sleeve and see how the title is written? I think some people just aren't literate.
that would be hilarious, it'd be like watching the oscars.

i know! it's like when people think crowded house's biggest hit is called "hey now, hey now"

Well...and not having a Larry Mullen.

I don't know how other people don't see that.

As far as moments go there is better but as a complete show they rocked the most.

I've never understood the production thing... I guess I don't understand enough about how the studio works, and what good production sounds like compared to bad production. All I know is that some of my CDs sound way quieter than others, when the volume settings on the CD player are the same...

I'm not really sure I want to burst that naive bubble, really. I quite enjoy listening to Pop.

Look, I can make one call and have Andy Reid body slam you and/or eat you. It's quite simple: don't fuck with me.

First opinion: You're Phail Collins, Jim Zorn.

But it's SUPPOSED to be creepy and cheesy-awful... I think the think I like about Babyface is that it sounds exactly like what it's supposed to be, if that makes any sense... The whole sound of it fits the idea.
I'll have to get some of the pre-Boy demos too. There's a lot of laughable stuff, but also some good material, especially from the February 1979 demo.

But ... I don't like cheesy-awful! It's just not at all music I'd ever choose to listen to. I should delete it off iTunes so that it just goes Zooropa --> Numb. Now that'd be quality.

I think all that I've deleted from iTunes so far is Elvis Ate America from Passengers and You Not Me from Dream Theater's Falling Into Infinity. It's a fate for only the absolute shittiest songs stuck in the middle of otherwise worthwhile albums.

I don't have Holy Joe. And a lot of other stuff, too. Which bothers me.

Larry Mullen has got to be the least musical musician ever. The guy hasn't a fucking clue.
