Yeah I know.. I'm really having a hard time with this one.

IT started out seeming cool enough (sonic youth style guitars, some decent kim vocals, what's not to like right?) then that first song wound up being incredibly repetitive not to mention six minutes of repetition.

Then almost everything else was just kind of not clicking at all for me... I can't really pinpoint where this album goes wrong but it does.

viewtiful_alan 06.26.2008 12:12 PM

Yeah ok, I get what your'e saying now. LIke the grass just looks kind of poorly added in.
And the inside flap is only worse.... almost comical... they get all satanic... and the results are laughable.
Their photoshop version of hell is quite the subject of making fun.

Cantankerous 06.26.2008 12:15 PM

they like soft-focused it or something

Dr. Eugene Felikson 06.26.2008 12:15 PM

I really don't mind the new Free Kitten so much. It has a fair amount of decent tracks, they're not all necessarily zingers but I'm sure they're all highly capable of growing on listeners (especially those who post on SY forums).

I'm going to wait before I judge Inherit; it's interesting, disjointed and may surprise me in the long run. If there's anything Free Kitten should not be rated on, it's accessibility.

PS: 'Bananas' is great.

Yeah, like all other albums it'll get repeated listens from me. My first impression wasn't too great.

WHo has J. Mascis come on their album to play drums!? XD that made me laugh when I saw that on the inside.

Surf's up benefited from his guitar work though.

Yeah that one almost seemed like a sonic youth outtake, definitltye one of the ones I remember enjoying on the album. Mascis' drumming leaves much to be desired XD

Album just had too many completley blah songs...

Dr. Eugene Felikson 06.26.2008 12:22 PM

 


All this talk about Free Kitten put me in a mood for OOIOO.

viewtiful_alan 06.26.2008 12:27 PM

That looks like the happiest album ever.

atsonicpark 06.26.2008 12:28 PM

OOIOO makes me glad to be alive.

Sonic Youth 37 06.26.2008 01:05 PM

Land Speed Record is an experience. I think they were on speed then.

viewtiful_alan 06.26.2008 01:08 PM

Everyone in america is on speed now.. XD

So you appear to be listening to mellon collie?

Sonic Youth 37 06.26.2008 01:11 PM

I was last night. Felt like a little Pumpkins.

viewtiful_alan 06.26.2008 01:12 PM

atsonicpark 06.26.2008 01:12 PM

Dumb question, but I'm not really into hard drugs.. is speed and meth the same thing?

Neither am I. Um... speed is essentially amphetmaine. But the meth that is commonly abused (and what I assume you are referring to) is far more potent and addictive.
I'm not an expert either... XD

basically

speed is amphetamine
and meth is made of all kinds of nasty shit

Cantankerous 06.26.2008 01:22 PM

 

viewtiful_alan 06.26.2008 01:23 PM

^^Nice

 

Good shit : )

Rob Instigator 06.26.2008 01:26 PM

speed is the street name for true amphetamines.

"crystal" or "crystal meth" is a derivative amphetamine.

they are both mind and body destroyers, although I hear than one good snort of it and you can stay up all night cleaning.

Sonic Youth 37 06.26.2008 01:28 PM

 

Cantankerous 06.26.2008 01:28 PM

i would take speed once because i never have.
but not meth. shit's gross. my aunt did it for years and she used to run around with a black wig on and thought people were following her in pizza hut.

viewtiful_alan 06.26.2008 01:56 PM

great story

Good choice Lilly.

My brother is watching something on sculptures behind me, so that's what I'm listing to.

Ohhhh, now it's Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. Wow...
