'Bee Thousand' (the title is nothing more than random words arising from a band brain storming session) is GBV's 7th album release , so the old adage they took 12 years to be an over night success is never truer than here
If you think this album has a real unpolished home made feel to it you'd be 100% correct as the entire album was recorded on four track machines and other primitive home recording devices in the garages and basements of band members , and many of the demo takes of the songs were the ones that were used for the released album
TBH this album is good but no better or worse than any number of albums within the gigantic GBV catalogue , just wondering why this one is considered THE one & so highly rated above others?
This is the best audio recording ever in the history of recorded music.
@sethmadsen lol. Drunk people on bandcamp are better than drunk people on soundcloud. But no one is as perfectly artfuly weird as this album.
This comment is beneath your viewing threshold.
Fantastic, though falters a little in the middle from Mincer Ray to Her Psychology Today. It's an album full of original, abstract, short lo-fi pieces that will make you want to hit replay over and over again.
Love the comment about the artists sketch book. The aesthetic experience of GBV is so different in this respect that I found it difficult to get into for the longest time. Gave a couple listens a few years ago then put it aside. Recently listened to Alien Lanes and it just clicked!
This album reminds me of the end of Abbey Road (my favorite part of any Beatles album), where there are a bunch of short, unfinished but catchy songs that flow into each other, only Bee Thousand is a whole album built upon that idea. Definitely one of my favorite albums ever.
I want to see them play this whole album live, from start to finish. How awesome would that be? This might be my favorite BEA find ever. Like so many great albums, some people get it, others don't. I get this one and not some others that you get.
Sometimes an artist’s sketchbook is far more fascinating than the overly polished final piece.
