Like I said, the singles are good, everything else not so much.

5/12 songs are very good. That makes a pretty good album.

Well not for me because I think everything else is pretty horrible, I can't even stand Minority, they're trying to show their "range" here and the result is pretty laughable.

"Oh look we have our ballad (Macys Day Parade), our love song (Church on Sunday) our "funny" song (Deadbeat Holiday), our really "punk" song (Blood, Sex and Booze), our "satire" (Fashion Victim), we even have a really lame "message" song called Hold On where I'm playing harmonica oh and we have a song called Misery that sounds like a very bad cover of a Tom Waits song. We have everything, this album surely won't end up being a cliche piece of poo".

You're free to disagree, I just think Green Day are a horrible album band, stick to the singles kids.

Not really a fan of Mercury Rev at all but this song is pure brilliance.

Yeah.

(Ok, ok, I like the Unplugged version of All Apologies, but it's still pretty mediocre. Something In The Way is perfect.)

Jesus, not saying Something In The Way isn't a good song but it's probably one of the most boring Nirvana songs I have ever heard..

I liked it for exactly that reason actually. They diversify somewhat without changing their sound drastically.

YouTube - Sugarcubes-Birthday (English)


I like the Sugarcubes and Bjork and all, but this track is the classic. It's (dare I say it) a perfect pop song.
