yeah no shit.
or any other annoying 'clever' titles like that
Ben Lee's 'Awake is the new Sleep'is another one that springs to mind
Is the worst album title ever.
And that from a band that came up with such genius as 'Night of the living bassheads' 'party for your right to fight' and 'black steel in the hour of chaos'
'New Whirl Odor'
is truly awful, i'd have to agree.
to spot any trends on this thread
...what on earth?
only acceptable on a debut album.
The album is good.
The title isn't.
when they feel like they've finally made the album they always wanted too.
Or maybe they're lazy tossers.
but it always does smack of "Oh no we are releasing the album in two weeks and we haven't thought of a name yet....oh fuck it call it (band name)"
Works for a birth or rebirth.
"Greatest Hits" is a shit one. "Greatest Hits" implies that there were other, lesser hits that didn't make the compilation. If it's got *all* the hits, it should be "The Singles Collection". "Best Of" should never be used.
B-Sides collections called things like "B-Side Myself" or "Attack of the Killer B's" are also horrible.
But then it's difficult to name a compilation. If you name it after one of the songs, then it's a title which you first used years ago.
(or Ocean Colour Pants if you're Super Hans) had one called "B-sides, seasides and free rides". Arf.
Its obviously AMAZING.
So is St.Anger.
St. Anger as a title.
I always want to pronounce that 'san onjay' like it's a French town. I can't stop reading it as that.
DETERMINES MY DEATH STYLE!
Or just self-aggrandising... *apparently* 'concrete rose' is a term used for a hot girl from the ghetto.
Either way it's still wank.
5:14 Fluoxytine Seagull Alcohol John Nicotine.
without being eponymous surely has to be PIL's 'Album', no?
at least they were making a point.
artists that call a best of "Greatest Hits...So Far" or " So far, so good" as this implies that they still have a fruitful recording career ahead of them and they're not chucking out a cash-in compilation because they're dying on their arse commercially.
worst band name. and worst album name.
Yet I like them.
did that exact thing. So Far So Good.
He also had a best-of called Best Of Me.
I own the latter. Used to love it, now I spit on it. Apart from Summer Of 69.
he actually wrote a song called "best of me" to start it off
"all killer, no filler"
a total lie, as well.
"How to dismantle an atomic bomb"
I don't care how good the album is, they are shit ideas.
a band called 'Sound!!!!' releasing an album called 'WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGH' i will not be happy.
neil hannon's latest offering was sh*t. 'victory for the comic muse'. JESUS.
