It's the finest LP ever, by anyone, in my book. It's perfect from first note to last, etc etc etc.

And it's got less than ten tracks, which makes it poll friendly!

I'm using the CD tracklisting, not the vinyl. If that causes you a problem then PM me or something, get it on as they say.

My favorite LP (except for the length of Disconnection Notice).
Tough choice, but Rain on Tin has to be it.

Does anyone have any bootlegs from the murray street tour ? I heard them do "disconnection notice" live last year and i thought it sounded much better than the record version. It seems like when SY took the songs live they really expanded upon them, giving it a new feel. Help anyone ?

Damn, that's a toughie. I enjoy all the songs quite a bit...I guess my favorite is "Karen Revisited". Although "Sympathy for the Strawberry" and "Disconnection Notice" come in a close 2nd and 3rd.

ah, ok... i did not log in yesterday, so i did not notice...

as you might now, this traffic light is the eastern german version... after the reunification, they wanted ex-Eastern Germany to adopt the western version (or the EU version), but there were apparently some protests to keep the nice little fella... in Berlin, you only see it in the ex-eastern part of the city...

Right, no offence intended, this just struck me:

The (capitialist) West German chap is proud and strong, clearly, and has pupose to his stride. He looks forwards to the future. he matters to his govenment.

The (communist) East German man is small (ie in the eyes of the state) and wears a rustic hat, and his lowly status in the eyes of the authorities is further represented by him looking (raising his hand) upwards.

The EU person is bland and featureless. He's a no-one in the eyes of the state, his individuality goes unrecognised. And he has a bizarre walk.

Am I way off the mark?

(I like the East German sign, by the way, I just see propaganda in all of them!)
