Their first album (Oxeneers or The Lion Sleeps When It's Antelope Go Home) is their best work. Better than Easter anyway.

when there's members or former members of different bands involved, comparisons are inevitable.

I appreciate Easter because of the first album, which, blows my mind. Never tires. But Easter is still a top album.

Listen to Idaho, the last track on Easter, it's a definite highlight, great song.

No, thanks. Sorry, I'm just not into them.

Botch is the shit, though.

history lesson:

minus the bear and taas both are bands that rose out of botch's break up. one dude formed one band, another formed the other.

Yeah, norma, not trying to be an ass here, but at least try wikipedia before attempting to mock people.

Had you even heard These Arms Are Snakes before this thread though, was it purely wikipedias opinion? There was no mocking. And I still see no need for comparison. This board does way too much of that. "This is better than that so I don't listen to that because I have to pick one or the other. Why listen to that when I could listen to this".

I compared the three bands because Botch were mentioned. So, I figured I'd add my two cents on that family of bands. It's no big deal. I don't care what anyone listens to.

And I heard this is meant to hurt you ep, oh, 4 or 5 years ago now. It's very very average. I heard another one of their albums (Oxeneer blah blah) a few years ago. It didn't really do anything for me, though I can't deny there being some interest song structures and riffs.

Also, wikipedia doesn't have "opinions". It (usually) states facts with links to other people's opinions. Also, I've never based my opinion off of anything except thoughts I've formed. Finally, I don't reply to threads unless I know what I'm talking about.

not to gang up on anything but i remember when the first taas ep came out and some reviewer who knew what he was talking about said it was pure garbage so i didn't bother. i then listened to oxeneer and thought it was ok, i actually listened to it a lot because it did grow on me a bit but not that much.

as i said before, they are ok but nothing to write home about, and the botch comparison is because they have a precedent of the people involved in both bands doing something better than "ok". minus the bear are ok-ish too, in my opinion.
