I've always been pretty ravenous about pop culture, highbrow and lowbrow.
- St. Vincent
haven't listened to his solo stuff, but I would rank the husker/sugar albums like this:(1) sugar - copper blue(2) HD - new day rising(3) HD - flip your wig(4) HD - candy apple grey(5) sugar - easy listening(6) HD - zen arcade(7) HD - warehouse"copper blue" is one of the most underrated 90s albums, such perfect power pop/punk... i never really got into "zen arcade," unlike a lot of people, just didn't really connect with me... then again, i greatly prefer "pleased to meet me" by the replacements to "let it be," so what the hell do i know
I agree that Zen Arcade is overrated. You may have a point about New Day Rising being better.However, Your "Pleased to Meet Me" comment is crazy.
I guess the production undermines the effect of the otherwise amazing sonics of zen arcade, here's my list1.Metal Circus2.New Day Rising3.Flip Your Wig4.Warehouse: Songs and Stories5.Eight Miles High single (One of the best covers, hands down)i think Metal Circus has the most innovative guitar melodies i have heard yet, i'm gonna learn all the songs of New Day Rising lol.
oh yeah, greetings from India, neat blog
Thanks, Darrell. Yeah, you're right. Metal Circus rocks and should be in there. Paul
