The beautiful cover art is to distract you from the fact that they might have the worst drummer in the world.

Bowie's Diamond Dogs, although later I'm going to listen to Americana in celebration of the 20th anniversary. (Sorry...)

that... may be. well not i have noticed any atrocities, but i dont listen to this one for the beat, actually. more for the textures and atmosphere, yeah. maybe that means bad drummer. but here the guitars are so gooooood.

I'm actually working through Bowie's discography atm.

Except for 'The Distance', I have NFI about Cake. But I probably should.

hahaha yeah, it’s pretty much all like that

it wasnt glorious or anything, but it was a little absurd and strange, especially for stuff that would come up on the radio, yeah, so it was fun/funny and why not.

I always felt like Cake was what Beck would sound like if Beck was a band and not just one guy. With all the eccentricities kind of ironed out democratically.

Not a fan. Not a fan of a lot of what Beck has been up to either, but back in the mid-Ď90s he was on some next level shit.

He could conceivably come back and do something wild and inventive and continue on the path to being the heir apparent to Bowie.... but probably not because heís like 55 and has been BM-ing out his last several albums.

But Cake. Thatís a name I donít hear a lot.

Do you have/have you heard the 2CD version from 2004? The lo-fi-ish live vocal-and-violin Forster take on "You're A Big Girl Now" that closes the second disc is fucking devastating.

ANIMALS is the only Pink Floyd album I need to listen to.

I hope you mean it's the only Waters-era Floyd you need to listen to, because if you don't think you need The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn, well...

I'm listening to The Cure which currently plays on the radio.
In the morning I listened to Orchestra of Spheres new album ("Mirror") on my way to work.
The day is shitty, but the music makes it better.

If you can imagine Black Sabbath - Sabotage mixed with a Brian Jonestown Massacre sort of groove......and songs about necromance:

Arteaga - Vol III Necromance

RELICS is a more pleasurable listen than PIPER imho.

I think I might prefer Megadeth to Metallica.

How many Thanksgiving songs are there? I can't think of a single one.
