I think I'm addicted to listening to them.
Long time since I played it now though. Which album are you listening to?
I generally listen Everyone into Position the most; couple of times a day, if not more, Effloresce is new to me but I think it will get a hold of me soon. Just listened to Frames for the first time in a few weeks and I think it definitely deserves more listens.
It's about time they did some new stuff isn't it? I think I love all three of their albums equally but I think Effloresce just pips it, great album.
Look forward to it, even though that is way off!
from the 3 album nights at the roadhouse. I'm going to play spot my face
less than a year ago they released a CD/DVD on Superball, the label they put out the third record with, and that's being released in the US soon n'all.
but just can't get into the 2nd & 3rd albums
2nd is the weaker album for me, by far, yet it has some of their best material (music for a nurse, homage to a shame, ornament), and frames is one of my favourite albums of ever.
have you tried the 'music for nurses' ep? 25 minutes of pant shittingly amazing music. it was released between the first and second album. It's real neat!
One out of None is possibly the best song they've ever recorded.
There are parts of the other albums I like I just find it a bit of a slog to listen to them in one go.
It's less about individual tunes, more about the journey of the album as a whole. There are so many emotions running through that album. I think in order to love it you've got to take it in one sitting [my version doesn't have Vorhees or whatever it's called, so I don't have to stop it after the last track]. To me it's their most human album.
nothing comes close
Still reigns as one of my favourite ever songs
It's just bliss
not just saying that. Genuinely is just the best song ever written.
