I like this quite a bit, but as I read other people's comments I'm struck by how I don't seem to be enjoying it as much. I may need to listen to this more because it's often compared favorably with some records that I really love.
The Albums ahead of Laughing Stock for 1991 are jokes. Nevermind, Blood Sugar..., Metallica's black album.
No matter how many times you play this, it still sounds as fresh as when you first heard it. Beauty drawn from subtly. Look down the comments, how many 100/100s do you see? Why? Because it's perfect. Listen to it now, or you'll die a sad, sad man.
His voice churns the melancholic. It begins like a call to arms and then glides behind the impeccable instrumentation. Vibrato that can turn the nearest atheist into a baptist believer. I'm throughly impressed with this genius collection of musicians and genre.
Sometimes I'll think I know an album well enough, for it to not be able to surprise me anymore. That I know its secrets, that I know what appeals to me, and what not. But then, under certain set of circumstances, all of my convictions will be turned on its head. And then remain that way afterwards, without those circumstances present anymore.
With this album, what it took was one walk at night in forest setting. It was a transcendental experience. Taphead geniunely frightened me. No matter where and when I listen to this album now, the feelings I felt then will come rushing back.
I wonder if it's time to move it towards the top of my chart. After all, there was only one other album, that had similar impact on me, and I was younger, and more inexperienced about music back then.
In the stillness of a grey Autumn evening, the birds take wing. As the sun collapses into the horizon, a gust of icy wind washes over you. It brings a spirit of serene anticipation for the days of growth ahead; a promise is whispered in your heart.
Well, this comment previously had a link to the Red Krayola song 'Listen to This', but I removed it, as I don't think Mayo Thompson's way of saying the sentence sounds like he's refering to anything else but the sound that comes afterwards. My intention was of course to get Mayo Thompson to tell you to listen to this album - I'd actually beg you to listen to it if you haven't already. I've realised that I've never heard a better album than this. It might change one day, but right now this is the peak
i've been on a kick of listening to this whole album at least three times a week, for the last two months. so spiritually calming, building tension and releasing it into liquidy cool waves like a professional massage for the eardrums. "Runeii" is the best song for riding a train at night and anyone who disagrees can talk to my friends NEWG and RASS *kisses fists*
ugh... ignore my previous comment... i can't seem to agree with past self on anything these days
the only period of silence greater than one second is the last five seconds of the album... soft and slow in parts, but nowhere silent
