Nandor the Relentless please educate us on the lore
Because the OP is a pussified baby back bitch
The Running by Beloved
I just listened to some of this , my biggest issue is the quality.
At least I didn’t have interns fired for drinking on the job, dork.
Why don’t you make a sweet logo for this thread when you get some free time.
Wasn't an intern, he was a regular student employee
Its not the worst thing ive ever heard
neither of this week's choices appear to be up my alley, but John Prine wins by default and advances to the next round
I'd heard a few John Prine songs before, my brother's first dance at his wedding was to In Spite of Ourselves, but I'd never listened to an entire album of his before. I thought Diamonds in the Rough was a really good album. Enjoyed it immensely.
It's one of his more popular songs, but Spanish Pipedream is a great damn song.
Yea big fan of the John Prine album
Only John Prine song I knew heretofore was the harrowing addiction tale "Sam Stone". It's good
Highly recommend all his albums up to Storm Windows. They’re all so different and I am constantly having a different favorite. The Missing Years is the only later album that I really love, but there are awesome songs on pretty much every album he’s ever made.
This is probably his funkiest song imo
It’s interesting that Common Sense was kinda panned and it really affected him and he didn’t make an album for a few years, but Common Sense fucking rules and I can’t believe that it was panned.
This is the best Prine anecdote...
“Hooter shares a few stories, like the one about Prine’s tropical-fish tank. One night, while they were out barhopping, Prine’s heater shorted out and killed all of his fish. Prine was distraught. He had become attached to a goldfish that had grown to a pound and a half. After storing it in the freezer for months, Prine took the fish to a taxidermist and had it mounted, explaining it was the family’s favorite pet. “I said, ‘The kids miss it,’ ” says Prine, who had no children at the time.”
I think this sums up the Claypool album. He’s a great bass player and his tone is amazing. To me it felt like a jam session where a singer would just make up lyrics as they go.
I did quite enjoy a couple of songs, Boonville Stomp and Rumble of the Diesel.
This is a ridiculous statement.
The Prine album is incredible. I can’t find claypool on Apple Music but never really been a fan.
He's made a fuck ton of really great and unique music that i just cant believe would have happened if he had joined metallica.
That was about the time metallica went downhill. They made 1 good album without Burton.
Yea that Prine album received a download from me
Download Sweet Revenge and his self titled album too, for starters
Beating a dead horse, but anyone who enjoyed the Prine should listen to Steve Goodman - Live at the Old Earl House. Awesome songwriter(most notably City of New Orleans). He also co-wrote You Never Even Called Me By My Name with Prine but Prine refused to take writing credit for it because it was a parody.
I used to despise you, but you’ve won me over with your Prine and Goodman fanhood. God bless you for your stellar tastes.
I actually kinda like the Claypool. Like enough to save it to my Spotify songs. Yeah it's weird as shit but I can't help but enjoy it.
Prine, meh. I know others have said his other stuff is less country, so I'll give that a shot, as I'm a fan of the Isbells, etc. of the world. And I know Prine has toured with him among others before. But this album is a bit twangy for me. I'm suppose I might enjoy it more if it wasn't playing in the background at work and I could actively listen to it.
First part is true but I don’t know how that makes him too good for Metallica.
Splitting hairs but they made two good/great albums without Burton. And Justice For All and Black Album.
It’s been a long time since I listened to Prine, maybe 20 years.
This week’s picks:
Huey Lewis and the News - Sports from War Grundle and the Glands - S/T from SC.
No clue why autocorrect changed that.
Their early work was a little too new wave for my taste. But when Sports came out in '83, I think they really came into their own, commercially and artistically. The whole album has a clear, crisp sound, and a new sheen of consummate professionalism that really gives the songs a big boost. He's been compared to Elvis Costello, but I think Huey has a far more bitter, cynical sense of humor.
The hits on Sports still slap, but the rest of the songs are just ok to me.
Working my way through sports now. It's very very 80s
Thank you for including my picks on the list. They are classics.
What genre is the 2nd album
They’ve been there since day one. I’m sure they’re better than the last picks.
I hadn't looked at the original post to see the whole list until today.
Patrick Bateman liking Huey Lewis and the News makes sense now that I've listened to like 15 minutes of this album
It's not like it's offensively bad, I just don't understand making a conscious choice to play it. It's like something you hear in the background at Disneyland
catching up since I've been away on vacation. I liked the Claypool album. It's the type of music that makes for a nice catchy change of pace in a playlist, but listening to an entire album straight through is too much. My favorites were "Hendershot" and his cover of "Amos Moses". The "Staying Alive" and "Man in the Box" covers were terrible.
I'm not surprised that a country/folk album from the early 70's isn't my jam, but I do appreciate the Prine album. "Souvenirs" is a great song. Some of them (like "Yes I Guess They Oughta Name A Drink After You" are downright zydeco. The lyrics in "Take The Star Out of The Window" and "The Great Compromise" are fire
my dad loved him some Huey Lewis in the 80's. I'll enjoy this album and haven't heard the other so I'm interested. A toast to you Nole96SC and Principal McVicker
this is a weird comparison
Giving the Glands a whirl. The song titles are all lowercase. I thought writing all lowercase was cool too in 2000. But now it looks dumb
SC what are some standouts on the Glands album IYO
Depends on my mood a bit given the variance of sound throughout the album, but Straight Down, Mayflower and Livin' Was Easy are probably my favorites. I like the funkiness of I Can See My House From Here as well.
Huey Lewis slaps and I listen to it in the car at least 3-4 times a week.
you are comparing a rock album to various music depending on where you are at a theme park
finshed Sports...so much nostalgia
about 4 tracks in on The Glands...kinda reminds me of what little I've heard from The Flaming Lips
I'm saying it's bland and soulless, like the type of stuff people play in the background at big events for "ambiance"
