As off as I think you are, I don't actually think it's because you are atheist. This Message Edited On 10.12.08

You're not wrong on the first part. I personally can't imagine someone who is passionate about music rating New Surrender over Bitches Brew.



umm




Your problem?

Show me where he provides insight. Show me where he goes beyond the realm of what any normal person would think.

Seriously? This just reads like your low rating was you going into Brother, Sister hoping you were going to be enlightened or something and weren't. (Which, now that we bring it up, might have a lot to do with the fact that you don't believe in God and seem to be pretty adamant about that. Weren't you the same person that liked In the Aeroplane Over the Sea until he started "singing about Jesus," which further proves that you miss the point a lot.) If you can't find the depth here than you are just not trying at all.

Well that would be impossible. It's not insightful to me because he says nothing I couldn't easilly think of myself.

Maybe you just don't want to find any insight in this as planewreck said...maybe just being a Christian has something to do with it but this is one of the few albums I've listened to recently that I've found not only to have a lot of insightful things in things it, but has really connected with me on an emotional (and spiritual) level...

I listened to Bother, Sister as soon as it came out. I had no expectations because I'd never listened to the band before, did not know they were christians and had never heard anyone really mention them.



If I remember correctly you claimed that was true of me (in a very childish personal attack). It is not true (aside from the obvious that I listen to christian music) because Jeff Mangum is not a christian and it's either part of his story (in the song or album, it's hard to know what he's saying) or sarcasm.



This interview makes it clear he is not a christian anymore.

And the "God is a place you will wait for the rest of your life" line is pretty damning too.

Oh I see. When you like music people don't like or dislike music other people like it makes you a douchebag. Why would you sign up to a website for music discussion if that is your attitude?
