Oh, now let's not exaggerate! Sixty, tops!
Anyway, I meant now, as I launch into Star Trek Month...

It would be cool to hear your opinion on This Heat's "Deceit" or Slint's "Spiderland." I think you could end up really liking both or you'd just hate them. Really not sure with this rec, but it's worth a listen.

YEsssss he's going pavement.

I'm sorry you didn't like Pet Sounds, Smile Sessions is a trip and I would suggest trying it on - as Pet Sounds pointed out you don't have to listen to all four discs - but it sounds like it wasn't as dreadful as you might have though. It is a pretty slow album, though, the Boys don't jam that hard that often in that era.

I am very pleased to see you dug After the Gold Rush though, it's a terrific album, one I haven't gone back to in awhile but never regret doing so. As Urban said, On the Beach is great too, stranger, but still fairly folky and has some bangers akin to "Southern Man" and "When You Dance..." (one of my personal favorites as well). Everyone has their favorite, but let me put it to you like this: There pretty much isn't an album that Neil released from Everybody Knows This is Nowhere to Rust Never Sleeps that isn't great, although some are stylistically not suited for everyone (Comes a Time, maybe).

Also, since you liked that Antlers so much, and I've always heard such nice things, I'll be checking that soon. A work that moves someone that thoroughly definitely deserves a chance.

Lastly, review Return to the 36 Chambers.

Yours truly,

x___________

Well, as you'll have seen by now, Pavement didn't thrill me (though I didn't hate it). 36 Chambers: that's Wu-Tang Clang innit? Hip-hop? I seriously doubt it: like I said, I'm trying to stick within the basic framework of the genres I know and hip-hop is not one of those.

I think the real question here though is: what happened to Marvin? Where's that avatar???

Oh damn somehow I missed it. Damn, I thought you mighta dug that one, Pavement give me a real Neil Young vibe, but then again it's his more hard rock/eccentric stuff, not necessarily his After the Gold Rush types. But you like "Range Life" and that's what really matters. But then you don't like "Gold Soundz" or "Stop Breathin" so we might have to fight. Thank you for checking it though! I consider it a classic of its time, and overall just a great, fun album, but I can actually totally see your qualms with it. Those dudes were basically just the most talented dick arounders around.

No 36 Chambers is a lounge album.

Also I'm being renovated.

I know you very well may not like this album at all, but it's been on my mind so much lately that I just can't not throw it out there just in case: Acid Bath - When the Kite String Pops. It's very possibly at least a tad too extreme for you (it's not death metal, black metal, or grindcore though), but I'd still love to hear your thoughts on it. I'm seriously not just trying to harm your ears, I'd just like you to give it a shot as a personal favor to me. There are definitely some harsh vocals -- though never full on death metal growls -- but there is at least legitimately clean singing throughout much of the album.

Already did it as someone's selection (Mondo? Frown? Not sure) in Metal Month II. Hated the life out of it. I'll link you if you want.
