Some nice choices overall. What did you think of Flaming Lips 'Emryonic' from 2008? I loved it - their best so far for me.

NIN - The Downward Spiral is a classic, love it. Kid A by Radiohead is my personal fav of their studio stuff.

Great. I have seen you on here before and noticed your username. I thought 'Nah, too good to be true - another Furry fan - nah'

Anyway, where's your list? Bet I can guess your 1997 choice ;)

It's out there. :lol: I like some of it, but don't get a lot of it. I probably need to listen to it more. I Can Be A Frog is my favorite song on it.

Ever see them live? I saw them back in 2011 and it was pretty trippy. They did a great version of ELP's Lucky Man.

This surprised me. A lot of people say they sold out with Green, but I love "Hairshirt", "The Wrong Child", "Untitled", "You Are The Everything", and "I Remember California". Every hear them do Lou Gramm's "Midnight Blue" on the Work tour? I would love to have HQ version of it.



It also has a little bit of The Furs' "Heartbreak Beat" in it, and U2's "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For".

Do any of you have the Jellyfish boxset? If so, is it worth it? I already have Bellybutton and Spilt Milk.

You betcha - it's still my favourite SFA album although they remain remarkably and consistantly amazing. Also the band I've seen most (16). I'll think of a list...

That's a good album but they did get more sophisticated without losing their originality.

Embryonic is a slow burner, but a great listen IMO. I have seen them live twice. Good live band but Wayne pisses me off with his constant chatter between songs. Shut up and play the music!

I got into R.E.M. during the Queen hiatus after Magic. I think Pageant is their best, followed by Green. I couldn't stand anything post-Green, though. I was shocked at how bland they became with huge success. Automatic For The People was the final straw for me.
