Cool coincidence then.


There seems to be an increasing number of Joy Division and Porcupine Tree fans on the forum. The superthreads and, more specifically, Axver, must be having an influence.

I'm wary of them because I'm unsure if Ian Curtis' vocal stylings would bug me too much, but I think it's worth checking them out.

And PT seems like a pretty decent band from Stupid Dream. In Absentia will be my next listen.

Ian Curtis is by no means a weak link in Joy Division. He provides much of the tension, really. Their rhythmic section is the best though.

I'd heard most of Springsteen's albums a couple of times before, but Phanan was able to get me copies of most of the albums I didn't have and I'm listening through them now.

Pfan what is Jungleland sound like? There seems to be a lot of talk about it in the Springsteen thread.

You've never heard Jungleland? It's in my top five songs of all-time.

What does it sound like? I'd slice it in fifths: a piano fifth, a guitar fifth, two saxophone fifths, and a vocal fifth. Lyrically, it's phenomenal. It's extremely powerful, pretty dramatic, just an epic in every sense of the word.

Listening to a live version on Youtube.

The rangers had a homecoming
In Harlem late last night
And magic Rat drove his leek machine
Over the Jersey state line
Barefoot girl sittin' on the hood of Doge
Drinkin' warm beer in the soft summer rain
Rat rolls into town and pulls up his pants
Together they take a stab at romance
And disappear down Flamingo Lane

Phenomenal.

Never been much into Springsteen. It's not his voice, it's just the albums get dull for me midway through. I love his work in small doses.

Have you heard his most recent one, Magic? I'd argue it's one of his top three albums.

I kind of understand what you're saying, though I think Born to Run has to be an exception. That album has no low point.

I'm alright. I'm going to quote one of my posts for you to review.
