What a band! :bounce: Although I have had many of their MP3s on my computer for what must be over a year now, I have only quite recently starting buying any of their albums. Damn, the four albums following (and including) Suffer (Suffer, No Control, Against The Grain and Generator) are absolutely fantastic. I feel the following albums dropped off a bit. Still good albums in their own right but eclipsed by their predecessors. So if you get the chance, I recommend you acquire some of their songs or albums.

And they have a new album out on Monday 'The Process Of Belief' which is vaunted by some to be a return to form as Brett Gurewitz returns to the band after quite a long time (major contributor in the original partnership). Let us see if they can hit their old form again...I will probably write a review of the new album for you lot when I have given it a good listen.

I need to get myself a copy of Suffer.

No CDs bought for getting on for 2 weeks now. :eek:

I'd say 'No Control' is a better album than Suffer, just that Suffer had the biggest impact. Still an awesome album nonetheless, you couldn't go wrong with either of those.

2 weeks? Blimey Mike, you're getting lazy. It's been 2 days for me :D

Post Christmas financial hangover.

I know the feeling. I have 'post-car-fucking-up' financial hangover.

No Control is really cool. What I like is, that the album is SHORT! and the songs are SHORT! This may sound funny, but if you like it you can listen to it again. There's no point repeating the whole thing 4 times from the beginning to get a 5:41 version. It's very "oh by the way - DANG"

17-01-2002, 14:04:02
I'll probably pick up whichever of them I see cheap first.

Well the problem is that the likes of HMV and Virgin seem to sell their albums at 14.99 which is a complete rip-off. I am sure they are on special at amazon at the moment, so you might be able to pick one up considerably cheaper.

OK, well the album is out tomorrow and I will be getting it. Expect a review of the album for counterglow in the next couple of days.

Excellent. :D

Heigh-ho and up she rises, Heigh-ho and up she rises, Heigh-ho and up she rises, Earlye in the Morning! :)

Hehe, I already used that gag on another thread. :D

21-01-2002, 15:04:14
I know. I was trying to make it run.

Yeah, more sea shanties... :)

'Twas on the good ship HMS Venus
My god, you should've seen us
The officer was extremely good at his job
But made some rather unfortunate remarks to a Wren which were taken out of context...

Bleeding spammers. Well this is the problem when two tasteless twats come into a thread about good music :p

Row, row, row the boat...

Okay, maybe that's stretching it a little. :cool:

I'll just make yawning noises to fit your music, it would fit more accurately :p

*End Is Forever*
21-01-2002, 15:25:14
Not my fault you can't appreciate a good melody and lyrical content... :p

21-01-2002, 15:26:05
Jimmy Eat World (on Clarity) sound like Westlife as mixed with UB40.

Provost Harrison
21-01-2002, 15:26:49
Good melody and lyrical content? I must have fallen asleep before it reached that part :p

Falling asleep at the wheel, eh? Remind me to never sit in your car again.

Provost Harrison
21-01-2002, 15:38:57
Well Iain, if you can't take it, don't dish it out ;)

You do realise it will be obligatory Bad Religion listening in the car tomorrow night? I will get you to like them, dammit! :p

Yes, I've had the opportunity to listen to PoB a couple of times now, I am impressed, very good. I will write a review of it later now I have had a good listen!

21-01-2002, 16:52:14
I haven't heard Clarity.

Husker Du.

Get "Zen Arcade" and "Candy Apple Grey". I guarantee you will not be disappointed.

Nice to have an album where the longest song is 2 and a bit minutes.

23-01-2002, 09:33:38
Hey! This album has one of my favourite songs from THPS2 on it.

Great album. :bounce: :bounce:

Yep, that's the one.

I don't get the sea shanty jokes.

23-01-2002, 09:52:02
I just ordered Candy Apple Grey as well as it's also in the sale.

23-01-2002, 13:38:10
I love the guitar on this album. Especially at the beginning of I want to conquer the world.

23-01-2002, 16:36:31
The Sea Shanties are an in-joke. You probably had to be there, but go on ahead and try to sing "What Shall We Do With the Drunken Sailor" over some of the early tracks on that CD. I swear it's practically the same flourishes.

23-01-2002, 16:37:25
You'd have to sing it pretty fast!

Provost Harrison
23-01-2002, 18:06:20
It was more surreal than anything, Johan singing 'What Shall We Do With The Drunken Sailor' along to No Control (title track) ;)

28-01-2002, 09:58:05
Laz's right. I'm listening to Candy Apple Grey by Husker Du now, it's great.

It's quite different to No Control, the songs are longer for a start. :D They are great songs, it's good to hear all the band members singing, some actual harmonies in there. Quite varied as well, my favourite song on there is probably No Promise Have I Made which is basically just piano and vocals.
