    Bryan, I was reading your Black Flag review and some how realized I missed the reference to the 1982 demos and am just now listening to it, and holy crap, it is fucking fantastic.

    If I could work in some alternate-universe Black Flag albums, here would be my ranking:
    1. 9-song Keith Morris-only album (aka the first 9 songs of Everything Went Black)
    2. 1982 Demos
    3. An album consisting of all other pre-Damaged officially relased songs (basically a variation on the First Four Years)
    4. Damaged
    5. Everything Else

    I go through this thread once a year. Though I've had it for a few years, I've recently been trying to put more of a dent in listening to albums from this book.



    This thread accompanies that project of mine pretty nicely.

    Tom, I have Grievous Angel by Gram Parsons all cued up and ready to go next time I get a chance to listen to music. I've only listened to 270 albums from the edition that I have. Which, for the math majors, is roughly 27%. I have a lot of work to do, but it's giving me motivation to discover and re-discover a lot of fantastic albums.

    That 1982 recording is incredible, but it pisses me off so badly, knowing that My War, which I think is a pretty killer record, could have pretty much destroyed everything else in their catalog if it weren't for the stupid ban on recording due to their label lawsuit. I'd love to have an official recording of that lineup doing the best of the 1984 material.

    So am I correct in seeing that no one has done TV on the Radio? If so, I may be able to push through my laziness to get one done in the near future.

    Do it. Even if they've been done and you missed it (I don't think so) we're at the point where second sets of reviews are good as they're different opinions on big catalogs. I'm certain most people on the board wouldn't agree with my estimation of latter-day Black Flag, but it's not my fault they have shitty ears.

    This is the first time I have read that Dino Jr write up and holy balls I agree with 100 percent in farm being their best album. I had that album I'm my top 20 of the decade.

    We should get some new activity going in here. Any EDM fans have anything to contribute? That's comparatively lacking in here. How about some metal? TheKlein, you could give us a Blink-182 breakdown, I'm sure.

    I've got a couple I have been meaning to do. I do feel compelled to re-listen to their entire discographies as I do the write-up though, and just haven't found time for that lately.

    I can try and do one on Aphex Twin, only thing is that I'd have to grab a copy of Selected Ambient Works Vol. II b/c I only listened to it once years ago and I didn't care for it, so I'd want to give it another shot.
    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.

    The best way to break through that album is to split it up. It only truly clicked for me once I bought the record. I spent time with a single side, really absorbing each track, before I'd move on to the next one. It's easy to treat the album as ambient music in Brian Eno's intended meaning of the phrase, but there is so much to the music that it deserves close, repeated listens.

    I used to find it ungodly boring.

    I've thought about doing Aphex. Also started the Fabric series but didn't get far. Also thought about doing the Flaming Lips and the Underground Resistance label. I just have a hard time committing.

    Dude, new job. Bring a Flaming Lips album, one per day. Listen once, maybe twice. You've got it done in two, maybe three weeks. I would love to see that.

    This. I'm interested to hear the album in section like you describe. The only times the songs on this album really work for me is when a song randomly comes up on shuffle. There is absolutely so much there but I've never been patient enough with each track to really absorb what's happening.

    I'm surprised that no one ever did The Fiery Furnaces. Out of all the heavily praised albums from the '00s, Blueberry Boat is perhaps the album that's given me the most trouble. I've been listening to the band's catalog on shuffle a lot lately, and yeah they're extremely dense and somewhat difficult, but in an oddly exhilarating way. I'm still in the midst of wrapping my head around the band as a whole, but as of now I'm incredibly intrigued and constantly surprised by the different sounds that they bring (brought? :/) to the table.
    4/01 - David Lynch - Ace
    4/05 - A Winged Victory for the Sullen - El Rey (?)
    4/08 - Drive Like Jehu - Glass House
    4/13 - Luna - Echo
    4/14 - Ride - Fox
