Track 1 sounds exactly like Amen. Horns up for Casey Chaos!
Even has a James Dean Breadfield-esque vocal delivery.
Or any band with an afternoon main stage slot on Sunday at Reading.
but without the energy or the humour.
the Shape of Kerplunk to come
Where everyone liveblogged their first listen to a classic album. That was great.
where does the time go :D
or bump uglies?
WE DEFAULT YOUR ASSASSINATION
But then he hasn't got to new Noise yet which sounds EXACTLY like Limp Bizkit.
but I wonder what it would be like hearing this for the first time now at this age, obviously it was my favourite record for quite some time as a teenager but I can't help but think I would just see it as contrived now.
in my early 30s.
Sounded a bit cheesy. Couple of genuinely good songs though. I imagine if I'd heard it at the time of release I'd have enjoyed it a bit more.
and never understood why everyone was into them either. Boring.
it's not my favourite by any means but I'd say it's worth re-visiting for sure
I always wondered how a tooth could have eyes
I might have been exaggerating a little bit, but what I said up thread was pretty much how my 'older' ears heard it. I really did/do think it sounds like Amen and lot of those forgotten American bands that played Reading in the early-mid 00s (I know Refused aren't American, but that's what they sound like).
I don't know, maybe they did that kind of sound first (it's not a scene I really follow), but I didn't hear anything out of the ordinary when listening to it.
You probably know this though.
but I don't think that matters. They may have started/influenced a particular genre or set of bands, but I don't think that genre has lasted in any credible way - so I still don't really get why it's hailed as a classic.
that's kinda a retrospective thing as they were later bigged up by Kerrang! during it's nu-metal high point, and then picked up and released on Epitaph records a few years later posthumously so it now gets that attachment.
They started off as a pretty generic hardcore band, and as the semi-bants post up-thread said, discovered Nation of Ulysses and somehow came up with a very inventive record for it's time, but I'm not sure it's aged that well and/or you need to hear it at a certain age where you're still discovering stuff to properly fall in love with.
I would say that scene does exist in a credible way though, the modern equivalent are bands like Touche Amore and La Dispute and Pianos Become the Teeth and aw that.
It's only really been called a classic/important fairly recently. It was reissued three times during the '00s and it was when this happened it started to get any major (non genre specific) press.
It was fairly out of the ordinary for a hardcore record at the time, though. Whether its an all time classic or not is questionable, but I think it still stands up. It is a fairly pretentious record and that maybe part of the reason it may come across as cheesy now, but I think you could say that about a lot of earnest hardcore records that sounded great when you were a teenager if you were to go back and listen to them 10-15 years later.
was a really exciting album when I was 15. listening back now it sounds REALLY cheesy
Sounds like "psycho pig" or "drank your piss".
I thought it was, "DIE YOU PIG!" for ages.
to move to da new beat
da new beat

the last one. Unless it is a strong Swedish accent coming out.
is definitely the bit where it breaks down in the middle. Why couldn't they have just made the song all like that?
