  2. We Real Cool: Nick Cave Love-In Thread

    Ahh Nick Cave Rankings. 1. The Good Son 2. Let Love In 3. From Her To Eternity 4. Tender Prey 5. The Firstborn Is Dead 6. Henry's Dream 7. Grinderman 8. The Boatman's Call (Prayers On Fire) 9. Your Funeral... My Trial 10. No More Shall We Part 11. Abbatoir Blues 12. Murder Ballads 13. Push The Sky Away 14. Dig! Lazarus Dig! 15. Grinderman 2 16. Lyre Of Orpheus 17. Nocturama Skeleton Tree seems to be mid-tier Nick Cave for me but considering his great discography this isn't really an insult. I need a few weeks to let it sink in. Before I get flack for ranking No More Shall We Part this low: I think it's a very good record and I get behind people thinking it's one of his best but I find his earlier and punkish period more exciting overall.
  3. We Real Cool: Nick Cave Love-In Thread

    wow great album I might prefer this is to Push The Sky Away already. Incredibly soothing and somber.
  4. Frank Ocean - Blonde

    Nah, this does have less hits than cO and is more consistent in just being good. cO at least had Pyramids, which stood tall above all the other songs. It's a good album after five listens but not really the great follow-up I was hoping for.

    His RYM lists are a great for recommendations (although Built To Spill doesn't fall under that). Velvet Waltz is such a jam. The best thing about it is how it all blurs together in one huge guitar storm, which carries the mood further and further until you're in total joy.

  12. I Am A God: The Kanye West Megathread

    This albums gets better with each update. Wouldn't be sad if this was the last one (I think so since it's going on other streaming services tomorrow. Doubt he'd have the freedom of changing it so quickly then). Feedback lost it's banger status but I think it's more schizophrenic and the guitar distortion has a greater effect. I have both versions so I'm not upset. I get what he tried to do on Freestyle 4 and I think the changes were actually for the benefit but I still think there should be more going on in the background. 30 Hours sounds worse now but I rarely listen to anything beyond Wolves so whatever Not sure if Shaw's backing vocals in FSMH Pt. 1 were necessary. Sounds really out of place (though good).
  13. the film canon is quite good. what do you consider Lynch's opus?
