for all that hipsters unite and Billy the careerist the understated whimsical pieces like Whir are indie gold and would be respected as such if by any other band

this thought doesn't pertain to this thread

Adore rulez

Whir, Obscured, Luna, all those Gish/SD-era acousticish tracks are fuckin' gorgeous though & it is truly one of life's great mysteries that the guy behind that stuff is (ALLEGEDLY) the same fella who did Asshole Pains & other such Teargarden turkeys

Daphene Descends is a neato track on Adore

For Martha was powerful when I heard it live even in SP2 it turned out to be the surprise highlight of the night

i mean i love most of those songs you guys mentioned (33, whir, sweet bsides like medellia), but to sheila is either top five or top ten for me. definitely the best song on adore, even better than that magnificent outro (Shame, Nitemare, For Martha, Blank Page).
yes

I love Whir, but I feel it's kind of a "small" song compared to To Sheila. The early acoustic stuff does have a really beautiful kind of indie rock lilt to it. It feels very pure and simple and true. But To Sheila has an insurmountable majesty.

So it's basically Adore with a handful of awkward electro songs inserted at haphazard.


Well done.
