Boney, the closer is my third least favourite after the 2nd tune and ‘I Was Not Born’

Still great though

Closer isn’t nec my favorite, just the one I felt like commenting on. Plus I’m especially partial to a very good closer and that is one!

Living in America is so good though - seems consensus is it's not that great but it's the most snarling thing in their catalogue, love it

It's like Arcade Fire's 'Month of May' sent back from Ireland with an 'unsatisfied' sticker on it

Thought just about every track on A Hero's Death was about 7/10. Pretty great and very consistent album overall but nothing particularly masterful or transcendent about it imo.

"Is it weird that in terms of pure enjoyment I'd much rather listen to this band than Joy Division?"



I wouldn't go that far, but I do find this more pleasant to listen to than the Fall.

I know this probably doesn't actually sound like Whipping Boy, but this record sort of sounds like Whipping Boy.

Hard 4 album for me. Cracked it up to a 4.5 because I thought ‘Boys in the Better Land’ is too fuckin’ catchy not to do it. Who cares if the bass line is simple as hell and they’ve essentially stolen the drum loop from Iggy Pop’s “Lust for Life” during the main verses? It works.
