then it's a tossup between this and call the dr. i don't like the debut at all

i still haven't listened to the hot rock or maybe i did and i don't remember it
for me it goes:

1. Dig Me Out
2. AHOTBO
3. One Beat
4. Sleater-Kinney
5. The Hot Rock
6. Call the Doctor
7. Woods

The Woods just never clicked for me. Although listening to it again this week for the first time in a long time I just can't figure out why. I do like their more "jagged" sound, though I wouldn't call it ugly at all.

On this one I'm liking Carrie's guitar work a lot. As usual the drumming is first rate and the bass playing is solid. Corin's voice is better, IMO, than it was in the 90s.

Best songs for me so far are:

Fangless
Surface Envy
A New Wave
No Cities To Love

The song they did on Conan was better. I'll give them that.

I believe most of this album has a bass track. Its pretty clear on a number of songs and it sits well under both guitars. Which was my meaning. It doesn't sound out of place. Live they typically are just a three piece with two guitars.

On many of their older tracks Corin or Carrie sometimes play a defacto bass part on their 6 strings, depending on who is playing lead.

they are playing 3 tuned down guitars, they added a guitarist for the tour with the quote "dont worry we didnt add a bass player."

So shut the fuck up, scotty!

SK isnt calling anything a bass, they dont have a bass guitar. Its obviously deliberate. Scot is the only person who is confused

Its better not to have a bass player if theyre only gonna play root anyway, but in general I still find it harder to enjoy a band that has no bass. It's like that. I like my conventions.

yeah, I'm sure I'm mistaken. But listening to Fangless or during the verses on Bury Our Friends, for example, it soulds like a bass playing and not just another guitar.

great album either way. I can't think of another band in recent years that took such a long break or even stayed together that long and put out such a good album.

yeah they're basslines written by a guitarist.... Nothing shall be played that might overshadow the guitars. though there are some more interesting ones here and there. I got into pumpkins around the time i first started playing and i found it a bit disappointing their songs were not that interesting to play on bass.

when you've got two guitars, you've got a rhythm player to anchor it anyway. Unless both are going apeshit.

yo soy you should start making a series of youtube videos where you do sign language against a song while it's playing (and the sign language is the lyrics of the song in case that was not clear).

I think I finally "get" Sleater Kinney - took only 20 years, and one concert.
how can you not tour for so long, and then kill it like that? I'm in love with these ladies now.

and this album is like a strange trick-box: after the first listen I was underwhelmed, then it creeps up on you, and now I wonder why on earth I didn't hear right away how great these songs are.

I like how the video nails what it feels like to be a kid listening to music in their room.
