Seems like they have just put all their stuff on emusic. Where to begin?
a recent listen left me cold to it as an album, if it was my first exposure to the band I'd have been "ah'm oot...!"
Further Listening is a great collection of their singles that's a great entry point and has the triple whammy of Valentine Card/Kantina/Where, Are and Was Or Is which is one of their finest moments, Nirvana level of greatness.
having never heard unwound before, and it didn't do much for me.
Maybe I'll give Further Listening a shot.
Is my personal favourite and contains some of their best material in my opinion. It's also their first studio record so it is a good entry point.
Numero Group (specialist reissue label) are doing a series of four Unwound box sets covering their entire discography. First one out in September
If they do the same sort of job on Unwound as they did for the Codeine reissues, these will be amazing
Leaves Turn Inside You is my favourite but you'll probably get more out of going chronologically.
I started with Repetition and in retrospect that was a good move. What I do know however is, do NOT start with Leaves. If you do it won't blow your mind enough in the context of the rest of their back catalogue.
I own all the Unwound releases on vinyl in mint condition btw, a fact I'm very proud of. :)
But I HATE YOU I HATE YOU AND YET I HATE YOU for your vinyl collection. Fell better for saying that.
got it shipped over, left it at work (in cardboard mailer) overnight and the cleaners threw it out, couldn't believe it, then i ordered it again and it got sent with a corpse pose 7" as a free extra
silver linings n that
enjoy discovering one of the best bands of the last 20-odd years...
fake train, new plastic idea, and leaves are all classics and the rest aren't far behind.
and all souls day
