grace is exquisite in its beauty and execution, but sketches, despite its demo-ish production and imo lack of stylistic cohesion in comparison to grace, features some of the best songs jeff ever did. sky is a landfill, new year's prayer, vancouver, you and i...shit's breathtakingly awesome.

and aren't these just some of the best fucking lyrics you've ever heard?:


Circle around the park
Joining hands in silence
And watch the evil black the sky
The storm has ripped the shelter
Of illusion from our brow
This power's no mystery to us now.

Leave your spirit genocide
The cancer you won't remove
We cast our funeral rose inside
And bury the need to prove
Our mutilation is to gain from the system

Ooh, turn your head away from the screen, oh people
It will tell you nothing more
Don't suck the milk of flaccid
Bill K. Public's empty promise
To the people that the public can ignore

This way of life is so devised
To snuff out the mind that moves
Moving with grace that men despise
And women have learned to lose
Throw off your shame or be a slave to the system

I see you take another drag
One more lost soul to raise your flag
The sky is a landfill
I see you take another drag
Let's see you take another drag

You like to dance to the rolling
Head of the adulteress
You sing in praise of suicide
We know you're useless
Like cops at the scene of the crime

With your steroids
And your feedbag
And your stable
And your trainer
Oh I got a mail bomb for you Mister Strong Arm...

Throw out the stones from all the cemetery homes
For the violence of a nation gone by
Or the politics of weakness
And the garbage dump of souls
That will now black the sky

Their yellow haze and crowds of eyes
Will plug up the mind that moves
Moving with grace that men despise
And women have learned to lose
We'll share our bodies
In disdain for the system

Oh, I see you take another drag
One nation bends to kiss the hag
The sky is a landfill
I see you take another drag
I see you take another drag
I have no fear of this machine!

new discussion: grace isn't "alternative rock", its "progressive adult contemporary"

Rockin' Cherub
07-20-2008, 04:10 PM
it's neither progressive, contemporary nor very mature so i'll go with alternative rock

he'd say it as consolation for jeff not being able to rock this hard in a brown sweater:

Grace has dated really badly. Sketches has some great songs.

Gunshot Glitter is his greatest song. Can't believe they didn't ******* it on the US Sketches.

Grace is pretty but kind of same-y at points. I think I like Sketches more now because it seems to vary more.

When someone says an album has "dated badly" does it mean that the record is too based in the time period in which it came out, thus making music that seems good at the time but is not "timelessly good"?
