I love coming back to my old reviews to figure out what I should be listening to. This still holds up almost three years later.

I'd swap Odelay and Midnite Vultures. The former is a little too inconsistent and sprawling. Otherwise pretty much agree. Sad that his releases have been getting weaker over time. I feel like he had a lot of crisp distinctiveness to his sound in the late 90s, but it's like everything slowly blended together into a muddy slurry.

I can't listen to "I Am Trying to Break Your Heart" anymore because it successfully broke my heart.

This sounds okay. Not amazing, but not total garbage. But for me nothing can ever top [i]Midnight Vultures.[/i]

I wish I could comment with more authority on this. The Aphex Twin pick is solid, although he was sneaking releases under The Tuss name.

I'd definitely put The Downward Spiral at the top. Of course, I was 17 when it came out and just getting really into industrial music, which by Bob's comment makes me extremely biased lol, but still. It was groundbreaking. And what was most fascinating about it was how harsh it sounded initially but how listenable it was at its core.

I find it pretty amusing that Ty Segall decided to knock out an album of covers on top of all the original material he keeps cranking out.

Absolutely! This easily makes my top ten for that category. I was going through an extremely difficult and complicated time in the late 1990s, and groups like FSOL provided a comforting backdrop in a weird way.

[i]Lifeforms[/i] is the really the ultimate of the genre. Not only just great music, but thematically brilliant.

Yeah, this album holds a special place in my heart, but [i]U.F.Orb[/i] was actually the first album I owned, and it's still my very favorite. I had plenty of adventures with both though.
