Indeed. I like the form of the album quite a bit. The duality of the sides. The staccato pop pacing of Side 1 vs the languorous atmospherics of Side 2. Sonically brilliant through and through.

I'm a fan of Lodger. A big fan, actually. I reckon that is the closest that I will ever come to experiencing a drug-addled Ibiza holiday.

Since we're talking about them in Random, New Order's Technique was recorded in Ibiza and was very influenced by the scene going on there.

Took the rest of popular music just a while longer to catch-up, as usual.

IY woke up naked on a beach in Ibiza in 1988. And the first thing he did? He threw on Lodger. The second thing he did was put on clothes.

That's a very special hipster kitty, though.

And frogs are all sorts of fucked up, anyway.

I think the first one, but the 2nd one is definitely awesome. The ear coming through is wonderful.

DJ Shadow - Endtroducing...

Midnight in a Perfect World
What Does Your Soul Look Like, pt. 1 (Blue Sky Revisit)
The Number Song
What Does Your Soul Look Like, pt. 4
Building Steam With a Grain of Salt
Mutual Slump
Changeling
Stem / Long Stem
Napalm Brain / Scatter Brain
Organ Donor (this being the only one I'm not big on)

Such an amazing album, I can't recommend it highly enough to those who haven't heard it. My favourite of all the instrumental-ish/ambient/trip-hop type albums I've heard, including Massive Attack's albums. Perfect moody, late-night winter driving record.

Favorite Stevie Nicks song: Landslide
Favorite Lindsey Buckingham song: Big Love or The Ledge or Never Going Back Again, he's hardest for me to choose
Favorite Christine McVie song: You Make Loving fun

Favorite Fleetwood Mac song? Landslide

In general, I am falling head over heels in love with Fleetwood Mac

Of what I've heard?

Probably part of my 100 favorite albums ever:
Fleetwood Mac
Rumors
Tusk

An unexpected great album:
Mirage

Three or four great hits and then uh...wow why did the 80s happen to Fleetwood Mac:
Tango in the Night

I highly recommend checking out the reunion album Say You Will. It's all Stevie and Lindsey songs as Christine opted out of the project, and it's def a few tracks to long, but some VERY good stuff, though you'll have to get used to Stevie's weathered vocals.

It's definitely better than Tango in the Night (even if it rarely hits that album's peaks), and prob Mirage as well.

The title track is my favorite, which features a surprisingly endearing children's chorus near the end:



This one is damned good, too:



And a Lindsey song, one that was previously played on the live reunion album The Dance (also well-worth checking out, esp. for an INSANE acoustic solo version of Big Love which has to be seen to be believed):

I want to listen to one of their early albums first (Then Play On?), but I'll check out Say You Will afterwards. Shame about the lack of Christine, but I think I'll live.

The highs on Tango in the Night are pretty high for me (Hell, our exit the church song at our wedding was "Everywhere"), but yeah, I just couldn't get much of anything out of the songs that weren't singles.

I actually own The Dance. Picked it up at a garage sale for a buck, and was very glad I did.

Then Play On is on a separate, highly-advanced planet in relation to Say You Will, but it's also a radically different band.

I actually like the majority of Tango. I'd rate it higher than Mirage, which is kind of weak apart from the singles.

As for Say You Will, it's good, but I prefer the solo Buckingham versions of certain songs.

Have you heard the Extended Overhaul of Organ Doner from Preemptive Strike? It's definitely one of my favorite DJ Shadow songs, the album version doesn't even compare! Give it a look on Youtube or something, I think you'll like it. I've never actually listened to The Outsider, have you? I've heard it's ok, just nothing like the rest of his work.


To not sin against the thread with discussion and no lists, here's a random list of songs I'm enjoying lately (no artist named more than once):

Fleet Foxes - 'Helplessness Blues'
The National - 'Terrible Love (Alternate Version)'
Beastie Boys - 'Ok'
Okkervil River - 'The Valley'
Low - 'Try To Sleep'
Morrissey - 'Jack the Ripper'
Harry Nilsson - 'Jump Into The Fire'
Dirty Projectors - 'Rise Above'
Mos Def - 'Priority'
Shearwater - 'The Snow Leopard'

No Endtroducing is the only of his I've heard. I too have read/heard that all his other work is "just ok", compared with Endtroducing, which I think can very well be classified as a masterpiece.

I'll give this overhaul a listen. Do you have the double disc Endtroducing? With the bonus disc, Excessive Ephemera? It's well worth it, got some interesting mixes, particularly Cut Chemist's remix of The Number Song, which changes the tone completely.
