    I listened to The Horse Flies album... For the most part it's not really my thing, it all felt pretty cut and dry and the songs didn't really grab me. None of it bothered me, except the really corny production and reverb on the strings. The exception being "Human Fly" and "I Live Where It's Gray." Those two tracks made the listen entirely worth it. The former had a ton of energy, and I was really hoping it would carry through the rest of the album. The latter seemed to come out of leftfield, but it also took the interesting elements of the other songs and fit them into a fairly coherent artistic statement. For all the flatness of the other songs, this one seemed to best capture what the band was trying to accomplish. I would never have listened to this otherwise, so thanks for the tip.

    Also, who is in your fantasy band?
    God damn, I'm not sure but that'd make sense. They were big enough that they could have had a decent opener. Instead, Mindless Self Indulgence and Sludge.

    Fantasy band!
    Lead Guitar:Michael Karoli (Can)
    Rhythm Guitar: Bob Mould (Husker Du)
    Bass:John Famiglietti (HEALTH)
    Drums: Yoshimi P-We/Izumi Kiyoshi (Boredoms)
    Vocals: Angus Young (Liars)
    Electronics/Turntables/insanity: eYe (Boredoms)

    That band would be the most psychedelically intense punk band ever to exist.

    I tend to agree with you here. Those two songs are definitely the standouts, although I like the other ones as well.

    My two cents on Horse Flies:

    The first two tracks were not my bag of tea. I have no idea what innovative electronic gimmetry went into the production but it comes off sounding like putting beautiful instruments all up in a synthesizer which makes me cringe.

    Jenny on the Railroad was more my speed, can't fix a fiddle. Good stuff.

    The blues song is pretty natural. When is this album from? Guy sounds like Neil Young. A little bit too sparse for me.

    Hey what's up banjo? Cornbread...I wish the banjo was louder. banjo>fiddle IMHO

    I want to imagine the drums on Who Throwed Lye on My Dog are live drums, but I suspect they aren't. This song has cool loops. I kindof like the disintegration of a fiddle lick into a techno beat. Kindof.

    Again with I think It's Gray - Is that a woodflute or a synthesizer? The loops on this are awesome too. I like this one. I like the humour and intense techno banjo.

    Link of chain - Blueman's daughter - some nice traditional bluegrass. Is Blueman's daughter a different singer? I like his voice better than the Neil Young guy.

    ***Great unknown album, Bmack. I'm looking forward to your next selection.

    playing music is a hobby.

    giving your worthless opinion on art is not. try again.

    ShyGuy, did your post really not seem retarded before you posted it? It seems like it would be very obvious.

    me trying to help some of you better your lives should not be met with such knee jerk negativity. this is the type of behavior that has put you in the dark situation you are in now. think about it. correct it. make a difference.

    Alright guys. I'm helping my mom in her classroom right now, so I've not been able to post, but I'm currently weighing my options for a few albums. I'm glad some of you enjoyed the Horseflies, and the next one should be even more enjoyable. I'll try to get it up in a few hours.

    ShyGuy, I just plain don't understand why you come on here. You seem to not enjoy discussing music, so why? Constantly pestering people and interrupting conversation is not a hobby, no matter how much you'd like to think it is.

    i don't understand it either, bmack.

    i also don't understand how none of the modern day schonberg’s on this forum don't have jobs writing for major music outlets. one would think that such qualified, spot on, broken down opinions should be shared with the masses instead of wasting away on this forum for the same 6 people to stroke each off with.

    oh, the mysteries of life....

    one minute we are would-be serialist composers, the next we are aspiring pitchfork writers... i'm having trouble tracking our fallacies.

    This weekend will be spent going to nightclubs who play music i dislike and asking them to stop playing music i dislike. I think it will be a valuable use of my time.
