My personal favorite Can album. Nothing else even comes close imo. Although Damo's vocals aren't as schizophrenic as I like, they flow very well with the album. Great to chill to, and oddly tranquil whilst funky. Bel Air is one hell of a jam.

Also it was proof that Yo La Tengo were no joke. They were sort of an 'old' band even when this came out and they still made better music than their peers and followers. Hell, they still do. I'm going to listen to this album tonight. It's that good.

Somebody review this:

"Melody of Certain Damaged Lemons" by Blonde Redhead

i think this is where Blonde Redhead kind of found their "sound"....stepping away from the sonic youth fuzzy noise influence of their first few albums.....and creating beautiful surreal soundscapes...although there are some really weird fuzzed out interludes....the majority of this album very warm and relaxing....this is one my favorites by a band that has yet to really let me down


Low - Things We Lost In The Fire

Things We Lost in The Fire was my first Slowcore album and it still holds a special place in my heart. I don't find it quite as sad as We Could Live In Hope but it's a great album for sure.
Highlights: Sunflower, Whore.
Television-Adventure

Amazing guitars as you'd expect from Television. I mean you can literally hear R.E.M. cutting away their musical umbilical cord on 'Glory'. And thats just the jangly bits. The songs themselves are not as strong as Marque Moon, with some underwhelming choruses. Tom Verlaine was by now now a truly accomplished musician, looking to play in good taste. As a result, the child like thrill of learning as you go along, and the punk 'friction' of their previous record is lost. Still, a decent enough record just not as striking as their debut. Cos I'm a spaz, this was my first time hearing Adventure, so merry times were had.
