Just picked this cd up the other day. It's actually a really good listen, I'm quite surprised. They have A really nice, spontaneous kind of jam sound going on for this record. It's a really good listen to kick back to and have on in the background.

If you've never checked it out you should give it a chance, it's not the kinda sound you'd typically imagine from these guys.

Anyone else really enjoy this release?

Why do you keep doing this? What sort of response are you hoping for?

What do you mean "what sort of response are you hoping for"? Obviously to discuss the album with other people who enjoy it or who own it/listened to it.

It was the anticipated follow up to perhaps the biggest album of the 90's, and it's never really talked about at all, but it really is an impressive effort.

I hate how theres this snarky attitude towards anybody who brings up any of the 90's bands as if its' some dinosaur shit, yet everyones got a hard-on for all of these ancient 80's bands.

this is it pretty much.

I mean i DON'T like the bands you bring up pretty much every time but there will always be a snarky attitude towards mentioning very mainstream bands (from the 90s especially it seems) because of music snobism that is rampant around here. AND i'm gulity of it too sometimes. But it's just there.

On the other hand there are certain mainstream artists that would probably be alright to bring up. The kind that have been deemed artistically relevant by a certain segment of the population....

I really like "Children In Bloom" and "Recovering the Satellites" as well as "A Long December"

I enjoy songs from their first three albums but not much.

Nobody has a problem with 90's bands it's just that you don't want to talk about any of the good ones

pavementtune
11-05-2014, 04:56 PM
The good ones, elph? Like the bands YOU like from the 70s? Sometimes I'd like to post-punk-post-rock your head. With a brick.

As for AAEA being "maybe the biggest album" of the 90s - I wouldn't go that far, but apparently it was the fastest selling album after Nevermind, and sold more than Siamese Dream.

RTS is hit and miss for me, thing is with this thread, fuzzy, talking about a 96 album in 2014 is, I don't know, a bit late maybe?

Recovering the satellites is a fantastic song, might be my favorite on the album. The album really gets stronger in the 2nd half. I never liked A long December when it first came out, but I listen to it now and it's a really great track.

Angels of the silences is a great too, a good track to check out for any CC newbies

Yeah, Elph seems like a good dude, but he's gotta be one of the most close-minded music fans I've ever encountered.

Yeah, I suppose saying " maybe biggest album" of the 90's is a bit of a stretch. But it was one of the top grossing albums if memory serves me correctly. It was certainly a HUGE album at the time.

As for being late to the party, everyone here is always babbling on about dinosaur bands yet I seem to be the one who catches the most heat for it. I picked up the CD at a thrift store a week or so and hadn't previously heard it, so that's why I'm discussing it now:banging:

So do i actually because i had the record as a teen. I remember really liking A Murder of One, it was my favorite then, i remember a lot of teenage crying to this actually. I guess i must have been 14 or 15 or something. Havent heard that in over 14 years or more now. "you don't wanna waste your life" indeed..

Recently i was at the dollar store and i heard Mr Jones on the radio and because i know all the words i was able to tell that they cut like a whole minute of the song in the middle...pretty lame. I don't know if this is a regular radio edit or if it was just that channel but I found it a little outrageous. I mean i dont even like the song now but goddamn play a song or don't play it.... "too many words, skip to the chorus!"

Well let's see, we're at the end of the first page and aside from your posts, we've got these comments rolling in:

I haven't even listened to anything off of August and everything after aside from the singles. I was never into the band at all, which is why I was surprised at how much I enjoyed RTS. I'm downloading AAEA now though. Can't wait to listen to it.

A big hobby of mine has been visiting different thrift stores and sifting thru their CD selections. All of the CD's are usually just 1-2$, just dirt cheap. So I'll often come across releases that I never bothered with at the time, or bands that I've just plain forgot about and revisit the music. It's quite enjoyable, and I've actually come across some rare releases.

No worries man. Most people feel as if they waste their life away. It sucks, but that just seems to be the way it goes. A lot of people who actually started families and all of that shit seem pretty miserable too.

That's weak man. Mr Jones plays at the grocery store I work at and it's the album cut.:smoke:

You're seriously going to compare Countring Crows to Hootie and the blowfish? Hootie and the blowfish are more embarrassing than Creed if you ask me. Just the worst Eddie Veddar impersonation that I've ever heard.

Yeah man, exactly. I always go thru the vinyl too, but it's usually been picked thru with a fine-tooth comb. Found Iron Maidens powerslave in good condition for a couple bucks at one place awhile back though. That was sweet.

PS, just listening to AAEA now, You're indeed right, Omahas a nice listen.

"Only Wanna B With You" was my 1st favorite song. Before that I wasn't really into music at all, apart from the Jurassic Park soundtrack

I wore out 2 copies of "Cracked Rearview," bought "Fairweather Johnson" the day it came out, and Hootie was my 1st concert

As a tiny teen I worked with a couple dudes in their late 20s at this greenhouse on my street. My 1st job. Dudes were talking about what concerts they were going to that summer, and specifically with regard to the relative chances of seeing babes who might b flashing thier boobs.

I mentioned I was going to see Hootie. Johnny (one of the older dudes, blond mulleted, a huge Ozzy/Dio/Danzig fan) goes

"HOOTIE!?!? ... the only thing you'll see at that show is a BUNCHA FAGGOTS!!!"

Hahah god bless him. It's funny to think back to 1994/95 and remember what a HUGE fucking deal Hootie and the Blowfish actually were.

I don't know if I mentioned this in the thread already or not, but on a Weezer message board years ago someone posted an article from some newspaper or music rag from the mid 90's and the writer was going on about how a lot of these 90's bands are gonna be flash in the pans and how they won't stand the test of time. He noted that groups like "Green Day, Weezer, Hole" and a few others that I can't remember will fizzle out before we know it and that the band he predicts will have a long career and stand the test of time would be Hootie and the Blowfish. LOL. As a kid my family was always talking about how Green Day were just a fad and shit too. Shows that the young people always know best.

But man, Hootie was all the rage. Anyone remember when Garth Brooks wouldn't accept the Grammy award for album of the year cause he believed Hooties brilliant album deserved it more?

History settles everything though and artistic justice is always served.

Just a beautiful song


The band should have had a better career, but they took the PJ angle of boycotting award shows and shit like that and that probably pissed off a lot of the powerful major label goons.
