Amazing album eh?
..ok, i'll concede that it's too long and has a fe crap songs on it but...
This House Is Not For Sale
Anybody Wanna Take me Home
World War 24
I See Monsters
English Girls Approximately...
are all amazing
I remember liking the first couple tunes on it but it all starting to sound pretty samey after a while, but if you insist, I might have to give it another listen sometime. Have you heard "Fuck the Universe" off the Japanese version? Now that's a tune.
Yeah, i have heard it. It was a bonus track on the UK Part 1 CD. It is excellent!
though have rarely visited it since. i remember being haunted by songs like shadowlands. time for another spin i think
*resists urge to rank albums*
2. Everything else
Me: New RA's pretty fun.
Guy: What's it like?
Me: Kinda Demolitiony 'Rock n Roll'
Guy: Rock n Roll's fun.
Me: I listened to Gold this morning. It's never worked for me before, but now I take it for great pop fun.
Guy: That last Whiskeytown album's fun. And sad.
Me: Great album.
Guy: Jacksonville's his best.
Me: Ah! That's great, Heartbreaker's my favourite.
Guy: Suicide Handbook's even better than that.
Me: Cold Roses is even better, holy shit it's incredible when boiled back to one album's worth of stuff.
Guy: Love is Hell!
Me: Love is hellllll!
This conversation contnued, naming increasingly quality RA songs and getting louder.
is generally really really great isn't he really
I remember buying it and thinking "I bet this is 10/10 everywhere". Turned out everyone seemed to hate it. Weird.
Those chimey guitars are perfect. I wish he did more chimey more often.
I wish to god that Wonderwall wasn't on it, if you took that off it'd be perfect.
Also, it's the perfect album to play on your headphones when the weather is like this.
