    I loved the shit out of this woman, but now it's like an old friend i don't recognize anymore, i do respect she's taking chances, but i feel it's not for me anymore...
    Thank you! This is exactly how I feel and I didn't think there was anyone else out there who shared this opinion, given how much most people loved her last two albums. I, too, can appreciate her growth and change as an artist, but I can't get into the results. I'm really hoping the album she's making now will be something I can enjoy, but I'm not holding my breath.

Tusk was pretty boss, but that's about the only thing I've heard from them that I liked after the Peter Green era (also not to suggest that I have an encyclopedic knowledge of their whole catalog, but my dad loves all eras of them and I grew up with their music).
    I still contend that Rumours was a perfect pop album.

    (Well, almost perfect. For best results you have to move Go Your Own Way to the spot between Oh Daddy and Gold Dust Woman, and put Silver Springs where GYOW was. Not that it's gonna help anyone who hates the album, but…)

    Tusk is best understood as Lindsey Buckingham's first solo album with some bonus tracks from McVie and Nicks.

    Oooo, I wanna doctor that plays NIN in the waiting room.

    I will buy and listen to her new album, but yes, i'm not holding my breath also...
    Still even she can't undo those 6 first albums (every one of them awesome in their own way...), i don't expect her to record another "To Bring you my love", but at least something i want something i can get behind and not be "forced" to like...

    I also didnt like the latest ministry (big shocker, right?), except for the opening track. But havent taken it off my ipod yet (only an 8G and its full so i need to take songs off to add new ones, stupid, i know) and a song comes on, 'change of luck', and its ok but then towards the end, the song changes, and its beautiful. The part where he actually sings instead of that horrible scream he's taken on the last few albums. 'your luck is gonna change, its gonna go from bad to strange.....'. That part. So awesome. Wish the whole song was like that. i want to loop that one part and listen to it over and over.

    I completely agree 100% and still don't see why so many seem to consider it "boring" or less than Mer de Noms is. Mer de Noms is fine but sounds like a first album, and even has some borderline generic rock moments; Thirteenth Step is incredibly gorgeous, MJK's vocals never sounded better than they do on The Package, the mixing is stellar, it's just such a strong record.

    I always thought Thirteenth Step was better than Mer de Noms in every way. I also thought that was the general consensus amongst APC fans as well.

    Most fans i know say that "Mer de Noms" is the masterpiece and "13th Step" the "minor" album, for years i would listen to both albums and like "Mer de Noms" better (i remeber loving how it was heavier during those years, i also related to the lyrics more), now i can see that "13th Step" is a better album in every way: better lyrics, better music, better concept; it didn't need to be "heavy".
    I remember hating "The Nurse who loved me" because the music (mellow and even silly), now i can see it's one of the best songs from the album.

    The Nurse Who Loved Me is one of the songs that made me love APC early on actually, gorgeous song.

    Maynard's vocals in that song are awesome, i don't think he ever sang that way again (not even in the Puscifer albums), currently i'm listening to "eMotive", another overlooked album...

    I always preferred the live arrangement better. And I thought it was a strange decision to put a 6-year-old, artsy cover song on such a highly anticipated album. Plus the original Failure version is absolute perfection (so it probably would have been better suited on eMotive).

    As a whole, Thirteenth Step started out very strong, but there were definitely some low-points. Vanishing, Crimes, and Lullaby were all throwaways. But even Blue, A Stranger, and TNWLM are a bit drab in retrospect.

    Nothing beats the original version though. So much better. The APC version is boring, imo, compared to the failure version. It just doesnt do anything. But im not a big APC fan so my opinion is skewed. Its like boring tool.

    Except for- the package, judith and counting bodies (original included)

    Putting "The Nurse who loved me" in "eMotive" wouldn't have made any sense since it doesn't fit the "war" concept from that album, but i get what you mean...
    Last night i heard "eMotive" and it is a good album, but not as perfect as the first two, i don't know if this has to do with the fact that they are covers, or that the two original tracks are just "ok" (i do like "Passive", but considering this was supposed to be a Tapeworm "song", it's not as awesome as expected).
    I do love the "atmosphere" from that album and i appreciate it more now, than 10 years ago...

    Flipper were better than The Birthday Party.
    i love both post punk bands.
    But Flippers 1981 debut album is a work of art. Blackest humour, such chaos, makes me feel crazy listening to it.
    Always thought Flipper were maligned somewhat or underrated.

    there are several songs that, when heard, make me so uncomfortable that i actually feel like i'm in physical pain.

    examples:

    free fallin' by tom petty
    pumped up kicks by foster the people

    but the worst offender is birdland. i don't care that weather report (whom i normally like) wrote it. i don't care who's performing it, since it's a pretty standard jazz hit. i just care that i HATE THAT FUCKING SONG. it's so god damn HAPPY and it just gets under my skin and makes me want to throw up. o.O

    Fucking I'm Yours by Jason fucking Mraz... but you probably remember me ranting about that diarrhea stain of a song a few times in here.

    Don't Stop Fucking Believing. I've never liked Journey at all, but this song really is the prolapse cherry on the shit cake.

    Sweet fucking Caroline. I'm not going to lie, I dig Neil Diamond, but that song... Jesus Christ. A lot of it probably has to do with bad karaoke and drunk wedding guests. Especially when they sing the horn part... I can't fucking stand that.

    We Built This fucking City (On Rock & Roll), one of the least "Rock & Roll" songs I've ever been unfortunate enough to hear.

    The Final fucking Countdown. I really shouldn't have to explain why this hurts my ears to hear.

    Fucking Imagine. Listen, John, you use $100 bills as toilet paper, and you're lecturing us about how we're so dependent on material wealth and money that we can't imagine a life without excessive possessions? Remind me, how much were your apartment and that piano you wrote the song on?

    That fucking Country version of Wish You Were Here. No. Just... no.

    I Would fucking Do Anything For Fucking Love... I would do anything never to hear that song again.

    The list could go on, but I'll just cut it off here.

    Besides it being plagiarism and an awful assault on the pleasant thing that is the Israel Kamakawio'ole version of Somewhere Over the Rainbow / What a Wonderful World...

    pretty sure that's not controversial... Everyone with ears hates "We Built this City."

    All depends on how you define punk - I totally agree that noise is one branch of the tree, but for me social commentary and acting as a voice for the disenfranchised is also a big element of it, mainstream hip hop has kind of failed in that respect, all conspicuous consumerism - far from being rebellious, it's now the boasts of the newly enfranchised. I see the bling bling MTV cribs designer clad rappers as out of touch dinosaurs in the same way Yes and Gong were on another planet to most people at the time of punk's birth. Grime brought it back down to earth with simple, raw music produced in garages and bedrooms, basically singing about how awful and bleak everything is. Also considered as a negative social influence, check, spawned a subculture check. The parallels are irresistible for me
