    I had to make some breakfast this morning to calm my frayed nerves after the fucking construction woke me up for the fourth day in a row, so I had some applewood smoked bacon, cheesy scrambled eggs...

  3. Re: Lets collectively, drunkenly, come to a consensus about the 70s

    I had to go back and check to make sure I had Isaac and Curtis, and the Meters as well. I did forget the first Slave record. That's a beast.

    As far as the O'Jays, they released two or three...

    You're probably right on Peter Gabriel. As far as Singles Going Steady, Hatful of Hollow, things like that, I'd include them on my lists because, for most people, that was how they first heard those...

    I thought that they played it at the first (or second) show and Westerberg couldn't remember the words.
  8. Re: Lets collectively, drunkenly, come to a consensus about the 70s

    The fuck? I would have never pegged you as a Fall fan, Tommy. The miracle of the 70s, bringing people together one cantankerous Mancunian (or is it Liverpudian?) at a time.
  9. Re: Lets collectively, drunkenly, come to a consensus about the 70s

    On The Corner should never be prefaced with maybe. That is the darkest funk shredder ever. So good.
  10. Re: Lets collectively, drunkenly, come to a consensus about the 70s

    I think I said this in the 60s thread, but my problem with the critical chaos that comes specifically with the 60s monoculture idol records is that the levels of hyperbole and gushing praise have...

    I looked back and realized it's really only the Spirit, Santana and Mott the Hoople albums I'm not familiar with. I guess what is different for me is that the 70s canon is wider in its breadth and...

    Guys, we need to talk. Everyone sit down for a second.

    So, Dude Incredible is coming out on Tuesday. Shellac has been one of my favorite bands for about a decade, but one thing I'd say is that...
  16. Re: Lets collectively, drunkenly, come to a consensus about the 70s

    Ditch trilogy Boiiiiii.

    But yeah, Rust Never Sleeps is probably my number 2 for the 70s, behind Marquee Moon by Television.

    Is Joe Jackson worth listening to? I always assumed no. Same with Ry Cooder, although I know that he's much better than I give him credit for.
  20. Re: Lets collectively, drunkenly, come to a consensus about the 70s

    That's definitely II. The riffs make that their best album.

    Whereas I thought your 60s list leaned a bit canonical, this one is full of shit I've not heard. I feel like that's the great thing about this decade: once rock became pop music and the underground...

  29. Re: Lets collectively, drunkenly, come to a consensus about the 70s

    Don't get me wrong, every album from I to Physical Graffiti is spectacular by Zep, but there are ones I like more than IV. Probably because I used to listen to that one so much as a kid.
  30. Re: Lets collectively, drunkenly, come to a consensus about the 70s

    I prefer Houses of the Holy in terms of 70s Zep.
  31. Re: Lets collectively, drunkenly, come to a consensus about the 70s

    Did you know, for example, that the 70s was so full of capable bar rock bands and groups that were later overrun by cheese that we no longer recognize that, at one point, the Doobie Brothers was a...
  32. Lets collectively, drunkenly, come to a consensus about the 70s
