    Let It Be isn't an instant classic, but it's so goddamn good. The first 5 tracks are so good, particularly "Androgynous." It can use a few listens, but it's so good. But it helped that I was already madly in love with 'Tim' before first getting into this album.

    As far as I'm concerned, the Mats could have done a whole fucking album of Kiss covers and "Gary's Got a Boner" goof-offs, and as long as they put "Unsatisfied" on it, it would still be a 5 star, 10.0 album.

    I used to skip "Black Diamond" and "Gary's Got a Boner" when I listened to it, still loved the album. Make sure you play it LOUD.

    Bryan has left you in a bloody pulp, so no need for me to add to it.

    But really listen to Androgynous-Black Diamond-Unsatisfied-Seen Your Video a few times in a row and tell me if you still feel the same way.

    Also you may be hearing the album with the hardened ears of someone who first heard all the inferior imitation stuff that came after.

    That is a very definite problem with being very late to the game of highly influential records.

Then again I'm known as the "techno" guy of the group.

    I'm sure if the lineup had better electronic acts I'd be going nuts for this lineup, but alas, it is an "indie rock" year

    And the black keys are as impressive as the raconotuers (however it's spelt): I walked away from both sets after 15 minutes.
    Feel you on this. I just dont understand Radiohead. I mean I always here people complaining about how they hate emo sounding music, but damn Radiohead defines emo imo. Off course there are songs of theirs I dig, but they themselves are nothing special. I hope to get wowed by them come the fest, but thats assuming they arent conflicting with someone else.

    I've found that this is a bad way to go about things. There are so many wonderful genres of music out there, that it's possible that a band or album that's "not your style" right now might be something that you're really into a few years from now. There is a ton of music that I wasn't into say 5 years ago that I can't imagine living without at this point in time.

    And at the same time there could be bands you couldn't get into 5 years ago that you hate even more now.

    I'm pretty sure if you have any remote interest in Radiohead and can see them live, you will enjoy it. Some of the songs are brought to a totally different place live. Even if there is a conflict at the festival I think you should watch 30-45 minutes minimum given the opportunity, since I doubt you'd ever spend the money on them if you haven't already. They are far less somber ("emo") live as well.

    Yeah, that run of songs is so spectacularly developed. The reason Let It Be works so much more for me compared to the other albums is that there is a great combination of the deadly serious emotion and the ragged levity. Black Diamond was COMPLETELY unexpected from a former hadrcore band, and especially in between two of their most fully-developed emotional tour-de-forces.

    Also he likes the Moody Blues and Steely Dan.

    But I actually sort of get what he's talking about. I've come to love Let it Be, but it definitely didn't click with me at first. I'm not sure if it's because I'd already fallen in love with their later stuff (Don't Tell a Soul came out when I was in high school and I was working backward from there), but – apart from "I Will Dare," "Unsatisfied," and "Answering Machine" – it took me a while to appreciate the rawness of it.

    Pretty sure if you take any beloved band, remove their three best albums from consideration, what's left will not live up to expectations.

    Dirty Projectors kinda bore me too.
    It's theoretically interesting music that sounds far too precious and self-aware and kinda lifeless to me.
