Jeff must be the most patient and non confrontational guy on the planet. He has stayed on Billy’s good side for ten years.

Wouldn’t be surprised if he got a lot of abuse as a child or younger human, i.e. practice

Gish blows Machina out of the water. It's not even close.

nice! I mostly go with recommending Mezzanine as starting point, but this will do. take it for a walk, literally
once you want a playlist for Tricky and other trip hop, say so, I'll make a worst of list

If Machina 2 was included, it would be a tough call for me...Mostly because I really love LMGTWTY and Home. But as it stands, I'd go with Gish

40oz: lo-fi production aesthetic
SD: a level of studio OCD rivaled only by Steely Dan

40oz: punk, hip hop, reggae
SD: there has never been a less hip hop, punk, or reggae album in the history of the world

40oz: notable samples- bong rips and porno
SD: notable samples- an orchestra and a sitar

40oz: three people playing their instruments
SD: Billy playing the parts of three people

40oz: serious west coast party vibe
SD: serious midwest depression vibe

40oz: cool without even trying
SD: the lead single is literally about being uncool

40oz: songs about drugs and sex and having a jolly good time
SD: songs about infidelity, child abuse, and wanting to kill yourself

40oz: indie label debut
SD: major label breakthrough

Yeah. I see what you mean man.

Gish: more cool, enjoyable, and listenable

Machina: harder to listen to but more interesting as an intellectual curiosity

We are comparing Appels + Oranjes here.

Sublime kicks ass... Don't mention that around here though. The Netphorian haters will be all over you with their righteous hipsterdom.

I can't believe Byrne couldn't parlay his years as the drummer in Smashing Pumpkins into any other professional work. That fact alone speaks volumes to his performance.

Poor dude had the dream gig but simply wasn't up for the challenge. It's a well known "secret" that Byrne was a huge problem on the Oceania tour. He just wasn't able to physically handle the workload. His wrists were all fucked up and he had had a bunch of cortisone shots. It's been said that his wrists literally sounded like cement mixers.

Dude must've known the writing was on the wall after that. Can't blame Billy here. He gave the kid a chance, and he just didn't prepare enough to handle the workload.

I'm sure Byrnes time in SP is something he'll look back on with regret and tons of things he wished he'd done differently, but he was a kid for crying out loud. It was clear he was thrown to the wolves from the start.

OBVIOUSLY you'd include Machina II in this - it's completely unfair otherwise

and with that in mind: Machina

Yes, M2 is included. But even if it wasn't, this time I'm picking Machina. There's something musically more interesting in it that draws me back to it. Highlights are obviously I Of The Mourning, Stand Inside Your Love, Wound, and for me The Sacred and Profane. So easy to get lost, in the good way. However, the lows are terrible.
