I have You're Living All Over Me and, obviously, that's incredible. Where next?
It's a good 'un, but I always put Bug there and Where You Been third.
then Where You Been.
the other albums apart from the odd song, I can take or leave, but these three are all good, though YLAOM is way ahead of anything else.
It's a different incarnation of the band, the Meat Puppets/hardcore/freakout influences are in the background and it's much closer to Neil Young in feel. So if your tastes don't run that way you probably won't agree. But the sheer quality of the songwriting would edge it in my opinion, even if the whole album wasn't slathered with completely fucking brilliant guitar solos.
Also, by that time J had kicked Lou Barlow out of the band so he couldn't mar the last ten minutes of the album with his morose dribblings.
although don't expect to like it much on first listen
the new one 'beyond' is pretty darn good too.
fossils(early singles comp) or bug.
and the first one
and I think all of them are more than worthwhile. The first one gets dismissed a bit, but has the wonderful Forget the Swan and Severed Lips.
I suppose it'd make most sense to get Bug next, as it is chronologilogical, then you get the poppier treats of Green Mind and Where You Been.
It's all amazing though! So much good guitar.
Those are the other three really worth getting. Beyond and Green Mind are also good.
is really really good.
I love Beyond.
