Yeah one of those perfect classics that's actually... just not.

Still a perfect classic though.

Endtroducing could do without some of the vocals and old school flashbacks. Goddamn it has great moments. I can understand why the critics gush but it's not quite unassailable. Over time, as those elements become more exotic to new listeners they might actually work better on future listeners.

Listen to The Caretaker to discover what this could've been and more.

He reworks some of the tracks to amazing effect in his live shows. Much more bass heavy and electronic.

I voted for TVUAN. The reality is that it's a better sounding record.

Vox published a feature today on TMR:



And here is the interviewee's 30-minute critical analysis of "Frownland" referenced in the feature:



You can guess where my allegiance lies.

Dig this, Frown!

I listened to Trout Mask Replica for the first time recently and I found it hilariously awful.
Never heard the other one, but it wins by default.

I think Captain Beefheart is an acquired taste really. I actually think Safe as Milk is a better album than Trout Mask Replica.

The Velvet Underground and Nico is definitely a listen if you're into minimalist rock. It was the antithesis to the happy psychedelic sounds of the day. Waiting for the Man is classic Lou Reed and the lyrics no doubt had a few ears raised in 1967.

I've said that he's an acquired taste so much on this forum that sometimes I forget that people don't always know the connection. Safe As Milk is definitely a good entry record to Beefism.
