Blue or Pinkerton? whaddaya reckon?
There's no question
Only in Dreams is the trump card that seals it. Pinkerton is merely very very very good.
I bought the red one today after some recommendations - it really isn't very good, though the cover of life is what you make it is interesting.
Just shoved them on for another listen.
But Pinkerton is great stuff too. Green has a couple of fun tracks, Maladroit is pretty bad and Red is noveltey. Having heard the singles can't bring myself to listen to Make Believe...
ahhhh the memories!
without a doubt still the best album ever made
However I think Maladroit probably comes third, I've never understood all the hate for that album. Burndt Jamb <3
then blue then green then maladroit. Not even gonna mention the last 2. absolute wank-centric.
With Blue a close second, and green a very distant third.
The other albums, as far I can tell having only heard bits and pieces, are so far away that you couldn't see them with a radio telescope.
Blue probably has a better individual songs on it (say it ain't so, only in dreams, sweater song, the world has turned), but pinkerton is a better album.
Green has a couple of decent songs (island in the sun - lovely solo. Crab is good also) and a load of filler. No thanks.
Don't even talk to me about motherfudging beverly hills.
The red head says she shreds the cello / and I'm jello BABY.

I asked her to go to the greenday concert / she said she'd never heard of them / how cool is that? / so i crept in her room / and read her di-a-reee-ee.
Pickerton is awesome, but Blue has Only In Dreams and Surf Wax
BLUE!!!!! then Pinkerton, then Green
the recent stuff shouldn't but has affected my views of the earlier records, pinkerton more so. still love the first few tracks but a bit bored of the later ones, and the 'i'm a geek' lyrics don't appeal as much now, again that also affected by my view of them now.
They're both great but Pinkerton has slightly better songs.
if i was forced to pick one album to listen to the rest of my life, it would be this.
depending on my taste at the time. angry = pinkerton. happy = blue.
