Thanks Mark! I missed the XM radio craze by a few years, but I had a similar experience with their first album. Before I found Fleet Foxes, I was obsessed with my dad's 70s and 90s based music collection. They're one of the groups that turned my attention towards my musical generation.

Haha thanks for the plug. Of course it's all good with me. I really enjoyed the review you wrote on his concert (he really is a great show). I caught him on the pure Comedy Tour about a year back. Good stuff

(As an aside: I think Meddle can be criminally underrated by Floyd fans. "One of these Days" and "Echoes" are just so far ahead of their time, and I can even appreciate the sleepier tunes like "Fearless" and "A Pillow of Winds")

Interesting picks. I've yet to really get into The Piper at the Gates of Dawn. Barrett's writing is so unique but I've always felt the performances are too sophomoric. Anyhow, here's a rough list of mine: 1. Wish You Were Here 2. Meddle 3. Animals 4. Dark Side of the Moon 5. The Wall

I think their pinnacle would have to be Wish You Were Here, though that's just a matter of personal preference. I recently played DSOTM to test the new alpines I put in my car, and I'll be damned if that production isn't absolutely sublime though. Easily the best produced album of the 70s!

Yeah I'd consider everything spanning from Meddle to The Wall (which gets a lot more hate than it deserves from the online music community) as classics. And on a production level, Dark Side of the Moon is a perfect 10/10. I just don't love every song (looking at you "on the run")

Yeah, it certainly took me a few listens to really get on board. It also takes focused listens, contrasting AM which was much easier to digest the first time around. But I like this more.

Excellent review! It's a shame that I grew up during the post-Blink 182 years, where Punk Pop atrocities like Sum 41 plagued the airwaves. I think it makes it more difficult for me to fully invest in Rosenstock's music, or punk pop in general. Maybe I'll have to give this one another spin.

I'll be honest: I haven't really listened to that much R.E.M. My uncle absolutely adored these guys (along with other assorted 90's acts like U2 and Dream Theater), but I wasn't really raised on them. What would be your starter pack for getting into these guys?

You had me at " turns the mega-hit, teen pop anthem into a sultry, bluesy lament". Richard Cheese would applaud this performance
