    Was listening to Tom Morello's show on XM and the theme of the day was live/concert performances. He played Jerkoff and explained the known stuff - how it was recorded at the Green Jelly loft on New Year's Eve and that Maynard rented a room from those guys and lived in a small part of the building. He then told a quick story about how some other people lived in another part of the building and they absolutely hated & feuded with the band constantly and how they almost came to blows a few times. Eventually all of the music and constant flow of people coming and going was enough and the others moved out but it's background to Maynard's "There used to be a bunch of assholes that lived in this part of the building, but we systematically removed them like you would any kind of termite or roach" intro to the song.

    for whatever reason 4° won't get out of my head, also I may or may not have but most likely may have gained a better appreciation for Undertow in the last week or so, a true comeback story if you will

    Whenever I feel like Undertow is slipping away, I watch the live show with Maynard in his long johns staring into my soul and get reinvigorated.

    Every time I listen to Descending and it gets to the climax, I think of how awesome that would be blaring in a college football stadium right before a huge drive at the end of a big game.

    "Rise, stay the grand finale."
    "One drive to stay alive."

    Basically, 5:20-6:35, accompanied by a sweet hype video, would be incredible imo.

    Thank you for reading.

    The crescendo peaking with “Stir is from our...wonton slumber” at 6:35 is the high point of the album and undoubtedly a top 5-10 moment in their catalogue.

    White suburban teens would refer to it as “everything”.

    I keep trying periodically with a renewed spirit but I think Fear Inoculum's just not gonna ever happen for me, not to say I dislike it, just kind of lukewarm as a whole

    currently on Culling Voices though and I still think that's one of the standouts

    It's just not that good of an album, but hey, maybe 2043's album will be better.

    The way Descending slowly builds into a raging storm is really underrated. When Maynard really ramps up and everything is hitting on all cylinders, it really is pretty epic.
