Also nice to know the music I've been enjoying from the guy is punted out for a buck. In my defence, his half-ass is better than most peoples full-ass.

(Also also - Punky Brüster has some pretty fun tracks, what with having known a few fake punks in my day. :P )


IMA FAKE PUNK, IMA FAKE PUNK, IMA FAKE PUNK.

Terria has Earth Day on it so is in my best ever list hands down.

Back on topic though I honestly can't think of anything that has truly grabbed me this year, De La Soul album, Sorceress, Transcendence. About to try out new Russian Circles and Gojira so will let you know how that goes.

Edit: Hey, new Animals As Leaders album is out, anybody tried that?

Alright, Terria is pretty good.
But man, I don't know what it is about this album in particular, but it really feels like seventy-two minutes. :P

And so I came up with this theory: I appear to enjoy his shorter albums way more.
My favourites all come in less than 50 minutes. The ones I'm pretty alright with are about the hour mark. The ones I respect but can't really go all the way in for seem to be pushing 65/70+ minutes. :-k

It is quite a plodding album. A lot of the songs sort of blur into one for me because they all have similar tempos with similar riffs.

I do love Earth Day, Deep Peace, Canada, Nobody's Here and Tiny Tears though. I like the production on it a lot too, it's one of the early ones he recorded where it just feels like you're sat on top of a mountain listening to it.

It was fucking awesome. The live DVD comes with the CD version and is well worth picking up. Failing that there is always YouTube.

Don't get me wrong in the not so distant past when I was clubbing I would only go to either Metal clubs or 70s clubs. The music didn't matter I just liked the company that those clubs tended to attract. Some of my best memories are from metal clubs in Liverpool back in the 90s, ale'd up and a curry after sometimes a roll with some bird or other.

I'm very sensible now.
