Machester Orchestra, please. Are they good?
No. Despite what the djs on fm 94.9 say.
For sure. I'll check some stuff out see if I dig.

I still think you have to start with Different Class.
I can't listen to Pulp right now. Not until I secure a ticket for the Pomona show on Friday. If I get all excited about them but then get shut out it'll be too painful.
since all the talk for them in '13... Pearl Jam anyone? I've never properly listened to them besides their obvious hits..
9/22 The Mekons @ Pappy & Harriet's
Ten is their classic, but I think I prefer Vitalogy. The first four to five albums are all varying degrees of awesome, depending on how much earnestness and classic rock bombast you can take. I can take a lot, and I love them.
Vs is my personal favorite. I would say just go in order, but that might get boring if you're the type to skip over the tracks you already know
Vs is the best place to start, imo. It's the band's sophomore effort, and it contains much less of the generic rock sound that many found troubling about Ten. It contains some of the band's finest songs, and man that key change at the end of Rats is so awesome.
Vitalogy is their best, and my absolute favorite. Vedder channels Neil Young more with Immortality (my favorite tune of theirs, and they're my favorite band) than anyone might have ever.
For the lofty musical taste of many on this board, No Code is where it's at. This album finds the band literally trying to alienate their fan base, and it has some of the most interesting songs they ever penned. I've always thought that it takes the loud-quiet-loud approach that the Pixies mastered, but in album sequence form, as the songs on this one seem to alternate in that way.
