Pulled out my copy of 1998's Soul Deep: The Best Of The Box Tops, and here's the exact quote from the liner notes:

Quote:

Today, The Box Tops don't get much retroactive recognition; if anything, Chilton's subsequent band Big Star has overshadowed his hit-making outfit in terms of pure coolness quotient. But at the time, some of the most respected rock writers had a more than kind word for the band. Lester Bangs, writing about Non Stop [1967] for Rolling Stone, praised the "beautiful buoyant stretches of pure rolling pleasure, somewhat like The Rascals' sweet-soul songs but more airy". And Robert Christgau said that The Box Tops represented "the highest kind of rock and roll, a music of such immediate appeal that I regard it as a litmus elimination for phony rock fans".

Speaking of Chilton and of "Sugar, Sugar", check out Alex's DEMONIC version from Free Again: The "1970" Sessions:

Well I read my first pitchfork review in like 1998 or something, and I read it to myself. And didn’t care for it. So not sure what that would sound like. Silence, probably.

But yeah, I really like that Heron Oblivion album as well.

You're the second person who's told me that. I know where my allegiance lies though...

'Cause I heard it in the wind
And I saw it in the sky
And I thought it was the end
And I thought it was the fourth of July

I’ve always preferred the commercially more successful Soundgarden to the earlier, sludge zeppeliny Soundgarden

“The Day I Tried to Live” fucking rocks.

Oh, but “Searching with my Good Eye Closed” is on Badmotorfinger though. Hmm.

Nope. I prefer Superunknown and even Down on the Upside. Them’s good albs.

Superunknown doesn't get enough respect, simply for having 70 minutes of killer tunes - and only one of them, 'Half', I'd call filler.

Also love that they ended up with a lot of fucked up time signatures because they, basically, couldn't be arsed to play in time.

So I had the awkward experience of listening to the song 'Orgasm Addict' whilst my little brothers were in the room...

In the U.S., Superunknown is basically the only Soundgarden album the general public knows or acknowledges.

It’s good. It’s the best one. It’s got little Beatles-isms on it that I really love. Great melodies. But all of their albums really deserves attention and praise.

Superunknown is huge here. So I can’t really complain that it doesn’t get enough respect. Soundgarden in general doesn’t get enough respect, but Superunknown is set.

Superunknown is mad good. Very inventive. I like it when a band employs a myriad of styles on an album.

Still on my Kim Petras kick. She has no official album but she has a good 40 songs out there.

Digging some Outkast. It had been a long while since I had heard them. Current favorites :

Snappin & trappin
Return of the g
Unhappy
