  • Mass Romantic might be the most aggressively in your face power pop album ever feasted upon human consciousness. It's still one of my favorite records.

  • anyone who hasn't heard spirit they're gone, spirit they've vanished is sleeping on a masterpiece

    It's good but I wouldn't call it a masterpiece myself.

    fair. it seems to be a record that has developed a cult following, whose members really do think it's perfect. but i can't blame anyone for not being a part of that cult hahaha. i'd say the insert that came with the album does a good job of evoking how it makes me feel:

    "Not long ago a young boy named Avey and his friend Panda Bear roamed the patch work which covers the land (some call it forest). They were looked upon by Pan and raised by fairies and the Angels of light who play deep within the Wood. 'Let's make the music of childhood,' Avey shouted one day as the two played. Panda thought this idea was a good one. 'I can use my magical rhythm sticks and you can play your Sun harp,' he said. So the two began to create melodies and Panda brought rhythm from every direction while Avey sang. All of the songs were about wooden toys and invisible friends and filled with the light of the forest. This is the first group of songs they played."

    it's kind of silly when you first read it, but it makes sense after hearing the record. i've rarely heard an album as magical as this one. if not a masterpiece, there's certainly nothing like it
  • There was a time where I fucking adored that record but the last time I listened to it the whimsy came on a little too strong. Still, it's absolutely one of their better records.
  • maybe when i get older it'll lose some of its charm. i really really hope not, though. just listened to "chocolate girl" and it was magnificent. i always forget how good panda's drumming is on this thing
  • Spirit sits outside the realm of rate-able albums imo
  • that's silly.
  • My profile picture is the monopoly man with a skull face. Everything I say is silly.
  • Don't you ever want anything more?
  • My character here is a shell of what it once was ever since I stopped putting aesthetic thought into my posts.
  • My only want is annihilation
  • what if you stopped playing a character and just made posts like a dude who exists? Only you can prevent forest fires.
  • Posting like a regular person is overrated, Shooty. Don't let these nerds hold you down.
  • I'm merely playing the antagonist in his story.
  • The Shootyman is his own antagonist
  • him and the government
  • fuck you
  • what r u the government?
  • get taxed, b.

    hm's ()
    Yo La Tengo - And Then Nothing Turned Itself Inside Out (I need to listen to this more, but I love YLT so I wanna mention them)
    Plaid - Trainer (This compilation is 2 and a half hours, so is a bit uneven at points - but a good deal of it is pretty amazing)
    Phoenix - United (You guys know I'm a bit of a Phoenix die hard, so I couldn't not talk about this. It's a great album, just with an odd 10 minute ending track)
    Outkast - Stankonia (I think the singles to this record were the first time I found myself enjoying hip hop. Ms Jackson is a stone cold classic)
    Deltron 3030 - S/T (#comebackdanny)
