I mean the gulf is soooo huge.
unprecedented I think.
ehwhat I want to kiss you. I want to hold you in my arms and cherish you through long winter nights together. I want to find and tune my acoustic guitar just so I can write sweet off-kilter ditties in praise of you.
I thought I was the only one who thought that Honey's Dead was vastly superior to Pyschocandy (the recieved wisdom being that Psychocandy is their one classic album and they went steadily downhill after that). I have felt so alone for so so so so so long.
Honey's Dead is all killerwhale no fillerfail
They're both classics. So there.
but agree honeys dead is loads better!
i prefer 'darklands' to either of them. also, describing 'psychocandy' as "meh" is just wrong.
'Darklands' is my favourite too.
'Stoned & dethroned' or 'Munki' then?
it is a danger to oncoming traffic.
You probably have to be stoned to fully get it, but meh, not my scene.
What is it you don't like about it? The feedback, the druggy attitude, the Moe Tucker drums, the garage rocking guitars, the hooky melodies, the shortness of the songs?
Cos all that stuff spells "yes" in my value system.
OK, bit of a sacred cow, but...come on.
Honey's Dead has aged terribly. Listen to the drums.
They sound like the drums used by M People and the Lighthouse Family. Perhaps it sounded smashing at the time of release but unfortunately by the time I heard it all the shit pop 90s bands used programmed drums that sounded exactly like those on Honey's Dead.
'Automatic' pisses on it
Everything they have done is genius. End of subject.
I reckon HD is one of JAMC's weaker moments. It always seemed to me they were trying to do another psychocandy and hence it sounded quite contrived.
Psychocandy is much better, probably tying with Darklands for best album.
Stoned and Dethroned is fucking ace, love the country elements. Probably my most listened-to JAMC album
