soft bulletin contender for secret best album of the past decade or so ?
LOLZANIA. That's like saying the same thing about Funeral or Ys
And no, i'm not much of a fan. Some great songs but also some very unappealing ones. And the production is sometimes quite annoying (particularly the overuse of certain effects). And the fact that there's different UK and US versions means it can never be considered a totemic masterpiece. The single mixes at the end are also gay and unnecessary
Other than that it's quite good
it's hardly up there with nevermind, ok computer and all the rest when those lists are trawled out.
quietly getting on the with job of being amazing without being in a poll every couple of months.
although you're right about those single mixes mucking up the end of the album.
Nevermind? Last decade? Not even "or so".
christ, all i wanted was a thread about how brilliant this record is, bloody nit-pickers.
Sorry. You're right. It's very good. I like 'Slow Motion' lots.
and it's been downhill since then :(
but i can never quite see what's so great about this album
i think i actually prefer yoshimi, some people will probably think i'm crazy for saying that.
i think the problem with the soft bulletin is that it starts with 'race for the prize', which is such an absolutely incredible track that everything that follows it can't match up to it.
