"on every island"
Funny, I tend to know the names of my personal favourite albums...
i see what you did there, that a & e key are just too close
I've never heard a NMH track in my life and even I know the answer.
So care to provide an answer?
many people on here see it as one of their favourite albums... maybe I've been here too long.
This doesn't mean it'll be your favourite but if you want the album that's generally considered the best then get that one.
It's more punky and less focused on the histrionic caterwauling that Aeroplane is known for. Aeroplane turns off an equal number of people as it converts, at least in my experience.
since the Sex Pistols.
What are some other bands on the "everyone knows their best album" list?
The Stone Roses.
I want to say Dead Kennedys, but that may be a stretch.
On the other end, bands where everyone knows their worst album.
The Velvet Underground.
In the Aeroplane Over The Sea
It's one of my favourite albums ever (I would go as far as to say it's near perfect), but I haven't really clicked with On Avery Island...
Live at Jittery Joe's (yes I know it's not strictly NMH) is wonderful as well, incredible version of Naomi and Engine is lovely.
avery is a straight 7/10. aeroplane's a 10. obvious really!
balonz - (little birds on jittery joe's is also amazing)
told you it was a pretty obvious one :)
Only a fucking question.
I'm assuming you're talking to me anyway.
Bootleg Audio (That I can think of off of the top of my head, there are probably better ones I haven't heard / don't know as well) - Live @ Bottom of the Hill in San Francisco
Live Video - I've always been a sucker for http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T5vBw5LMZBc It's Ghost/Untitled. Also, this is always a goodie - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i0SukD_mkL8
Songs - Holland, 1945. ITAOTS. Untitled. Naomi (Live). A Baby For Pree.
Lyric - "Can't believe / How strange it is to be anything at all" from ITAOTS
(sort of a long one I know)
"And I say I want inside you /Because there's nothing on the surface
But it hurts to have to hold you / And all your holes they hold no purpose
For me" From Rubby Bulbs Live.
I have both albums, around 10 live shows (probably more, but not in iTunes right now), Everything Is, Invent Yourself A Shortcake, Beauty, and Hype City. I have listened to all of them, and ITAOTS and OAA rank highly on my "all albums" list. I prefer ITAOTS. It's easy for me. Doesn't mean I'm not a fan.
a million times this.
