Re: Archer -- Season 4 Thread -- Thursdays (FX)

I thought this week's episode was very reminiscent of the Swimming In Oblivion episodes of 'Sealab 2021' and was the best of the season. This can only be amazing.

Re: New Suede Album, "Bloodsports", March 2013

The new single is good but far more understated than I was expecting from the first new Suede track in almost 10 years. It sounds a bit like 'A New Morning' done better, which is fine but doesn't...

Re: Most Disappointing Albums of 2012

This.

My biggest disappointment was the Dragonette album - their first self-produced one but it might as well be a Martin Solveig album. Almost all of it sounds like their collabs over the past...

Re: Smashing Pumpkins to reissue classic albums

It's been 95% confirmed that they're going with the original CD track list for the vinyl - so why does taking two (short) songs off require adding a whole fourth LP? 28 songs puts 5 songs on four...

Re: Smashing Pumpkins to reissue classic albums

I was on the fence about this one when the reissue program was announced - I loved it at the time but it hasn't aged well. However, a lot of the b-sides and outtakes from this era are fantastic so I...

Re: Sonic Youth - Daydream Nation remaster coming in June

We've already got '87 with 'Hold That Tiger'.

I'm excited for this - one of my favorite Sonic Youth albums and the existing bootlegs of this era aren't really of the best sound quality.

Re: Smashing Pumpkins Gish and Siamese Dream Re-Issues

My one hope for the 'Pisces Iscariot' reissue is that they make the vinyl a double LP - they're going through all the trouble to remaster these (and they sound pretty good), it'd be a shame to cram...

Re: Björk: Biophilia - New Album/Multimedia Project - 2011

It is what it says it is - a fan's gut reaction to the first listen of a much loved artist. Did I go in with expectations? Sure - it's nearly impossible these days not to approach an album without...

It's even worse than I was expecting it to be, honestly.

My thoughts, as they happened, during my one and only listen:

Re: Smashing Pumpkins Gish and Siamese Dream Re-Issues

Surely a used copy of either isn't terribly hard to come by, and even if they wanted a remaster there are also a single disc.

I'm not trying to argue, I'm just saying that anyone who paid a bit...

Re: Smashing Pumpkins Gish and Siamese Dream Re-Issues

I totally agree. I didn't hear much difference in 'Cherub Rock', but 'Quiet' - and then again 'Geek U.S.A.' - were a total kick in the teeth with how monstrous they were.

Re: Smashing Pumpkins Gish and Siamese Dream Re-Issues

So I assume that means digital only for the pre-'Gish' stuff? That's kind of disappointing.

Re: Smashing Pumpkins Gish and Siamese Dream Re-Issues

I actually really liked how each song for 'Siamese Dream' got its own postcard - superfluous, sure, but a nice touch.

I do wonder if Billy purposely picked terrible pictures of James and D'arcy...

Re: Smashing Pumpkins Gish and Siamese Dream Re-Issues

My thought on that when the track lists were first announced was that there's SO MUCH pre-'Gish' stuff that didn't make it to the album demo stage - and so much actual 'Gish' stuff to choose from...

First thoughts: the boxes are beautiful and the presentation on the 'Siamese Dream' vinyl is just stunning....

Re: What are you listening to? — November 2011

The remasters aren't out until the 15th, but apparently Beggars was sending out pre-orders VERY early. Perhaps they'll be on Spotify after that? (Though since there are no bonus tracks on the albums...

Re: Smashing Pumpkins Gish and Siamese Dream Re-Issues

Even moreso than that, I hope we get one of the 'Mellon Collie' warm-up shows on that set. (Soundboard is known to exist but not be out there, not sure about video...but fingers crossed!)

Re: Smashing Pumpkins Gish and Siamese Dream Re-Issues

Now THESE they could have done crazy $100+ box sets for each and I would have been all over them. As it is, I'm more than happy to give them my $50-ish for the pair and another $50 for the vinyl sets.

Re: What are you listening to? — October 2011

I checked the album out when I found out he was opening for Active Child on tour. It didn't impress me and, sadly, the live show didn't help change my mind any. Oh well.

Today it's been bootlegs...
