I'm really struggling to get into this record. Anyone a big convert? What are the best tracks out of the 43?
This album was hardly hard for me to get into. Instant love affair.
There is just so much to like about this album. It's so danceable and fun, it's politically conscious, every one is brilliant at their instruments, the songs get going, get their groove on and end in good time...just don't listen to the whole thing in one go. It's two albums in one for me.
History Lesson - Part II
This Ain't No Picnic
#1 Hit Song
There Ain't Shit on T.V. Tonight
Two Beads at the End
God Bows to Math
Jesus and Tequila
political song for michael jackson to sing. coolest riff ever and it's only 2 chords.
is my favourite. Takes a while. There's a bunch of songs that stand out on first listen, like this aint no picnic, corona, history lesson part 2 et all. After that just listen to it once in a while. Eventually you'll like most if not all of it. That's my experience of it anyway
it's a great album for a road trip, I can't pick out particular tracks as I like them all, which I know isn't much help.
followed by This Ain't No Picnic
i've still only listened to it about 10 times but every time I do, I love it more and more.
Just me n Mike Watt, playin' the guitar...
"sux 4 u" if you can't get into it
I like the middle third best
Don't Look Now
Shit From An Old Notebook
Political Song For Michael Jackson to Sing
Maybe Partying Will Help
The Glory of Man
History Lesson Part II
The Roar of the Masses Could Be Farts
This Ain't No Picinc
Also, their version of 'Ain't Talkin' Bout Love' isn't on the CD release but is on the vinyl. WEIRD HUH? But that's a good tune:
now with that song i did fall in love with, the album, harder to get into, i think its because its got TOO MANY songs, still, the minutemen are great
is my favourite. But it's 90% great.
Only my 4th favourite Minutemen release though, after What Makes a Man Start Fires?, Buzz or Howl Under the Influence of Heat and Paranoid Time.
Get 'We Jam Econo' DVD and leave it there.fIREHOSE shat on 'em.
overated band? are you fucking serious? posting on a forum about a band that worked and made music for nothing and you have the cheek to say they are 'overated'. Go fuck yourself!
Hardly an decent argument is it? OVERRATED !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
What are you struggling with? It's just a massive bunch of brilliant songs isn't it? Are you struggling with it as an album because there's so much there?
He's a stop siiiiiiiggggggn! So soulful.
was not to get too hung up about the vocals. they weren't a pop band. the music's always interesting enough to keep you going. it took me a little while to get into it. that's why it annoys me when people listen to it once and then just dismiss it. oh and a good tip is to put it on random.
