    Well, in 1994 nobody whatsoever had heard Spiderland.

    But I've not listened to Codeine in nigh on 6 years, so it barely even registers. I'll get back to you.

    Codeine are in no way a Slint ripoff band. That's a lazy comparison based on the fact they both play slow, talk-sing, and use dynamics to make their songs interesting. They pioneered a sound and musical style.

    To be clear, it is certainly an obvious point of comparison. I just disagree with your perception that they ripped off Slint wholesale or something. They didn't. They just sound similar.

    Alright. It's still good, it just sounded so similar that it was a bit of a distraction.

    I do agree they are similar, but I don't think that is such a bad thing. I think I liked White Birch better but haven't listened to Spiderland in a while.

    I don't think that similarities are a bad thing either; I like both bands a lot. I just took exception to Chris essentially saying Codeine bit their whole sound off Spiderland when, in actuality, both bands kind of progressed concurrently and were doing their own thing (albeit with similar sonic hallmarks.)

    I listened to a few songs from White Birch, and in Codeine's defense it was with shitty headphones from my phone while driving. And my reaction was definitely a kneejerk one, and I'm usually ok with bands sounding like other bands, but this was way more similar than most.

    Yes. Also, Frigid Stars came out before Spiderland, so you could say Slint was ripping off Codeine. But really, the fact is there were a bunch of bands in the slowcore/sadcore "genre" at the time all doing similar things. Also see the first couple Low albums. I Could Live In Hope and Long Division are both very similar in style/sound too.

    Yeah, but here's the thing: while good, none of those other bands reached the heights of Spiderland. If you argue that point, you are just wrong. Go listen to Good Morning, Captain and realize the error of your ways.

    I just listened to Spiderland for the first time a week or two ago.

    It's interesting, but it demands to be listened to in complete silence with good headphones.
    We're here to play some Mississippi Delta Blues. We're in a horrible depression, and I gotta admit - we're starting to like it.

    I promise that, if that style of music clicks with you, you're going to have a moment where you realize that Good Morning, Captain may be one of the best songs ever written. From the lyrics to the tone to the intensity of the performance, it just does everything right, and it's even more incredible that, while it's the best song on the album, it doesn't overshadow the other five tracks.

    If you really want to be impressed by Spiderland, listen to Tweez, their first album, and then revisit Spiderland. Then try to find a band that made such a step forward from their first album to second.

    So a friend of mine posted the video for Joe "I Wanna Know" on facebook and I thought hey I haven't heard that in years, I'll play that. Good stuff. Now I've listened to songs by Jagged Edge, Next, Ginuwine & 112 and they all sound pretty fucking awesome still.

    Edit: The 112 song was "Peaches & Cream" haha, that one was actually ridiculous, but still hilariously awesome.

    Every time I hear Jolene I fill in "ivory skin" with "eyes of skin." You're beautiful, Jolene. You've got eyes of skin. You could have any man you please. Skin eyes is what they want. It's what they all want.

    Is there a music publication which consistently proves it's complete and utter irrelevance more often than Rolling Stone?
