Yeah, there's a number of tracks of that quality on the album.

If you plan on listening to it, be prepared to skip "-00Ghost27," though. Frusciante may have had a drug relapse when he decided to put that on the album.

Ironic, since most regard Springsteen as an energetic Dylan.

The title makes it sound like it should be on Kid A.

I bought Kid A on amazon in the same order as Passengers.




That puts things into perspective, I feel. It's not an easy listen. Took me at least 30(!) listens to warm up to it.

30? Wow.

10 for me. Definitely a nighttime record.

Most definitely.

The title track is one of the most gorgeous pieces of music ever.

I only say it that way because Blood on the Tracks came after that album.

Both are storytellers, though, it's not a surprise to me at all that they remind me of each other.

Took me about 30 to get through it, 50 to love it. I'm probably going on 75 or so now. I've played it into the ground. (Doesn't match the 125-150 of Achtung Baby though)

I've done at least 20-30 with Hail To The Thief and still find it boring.

I'm sure it's a tougher nut to crack than Kid A, though. The only thing that comes to mind to describe it is "Theme from Halo." I've no idea why.

Oh, the released Hail to the Thief will never work for me.

I've got a 12-song adjusted playlist I listen to a different running order and some b-sides put in. Would you like to see?

Well, that's better than me, because I still don't love Kid A.

125-150 for Achtung Baby? Wow.

Hearing so much of U2 live has kind of ruined some of their albums for me. They're just so much better on stage than in a studio.

Why the hell not.


Is Gagging Order on it? Gagging Order needs to be on everything.
