9 Years of Mort.

User MortimusPrime joined 9 years ago on this day. I don't have a lot in common with his taste, but here's the middle ground between us.

He has this 5'd? Same bro

I don't have this 5'd but it's good, nice one Mort.
3U.S. Maple
Long Hair in Three Stages

Possibly his weirdest 5, but damn it's a good one.
4Brian Eno
Another Green World

I honestly prefer his first 2 to this, but it has song great songs on it still!

Surprising to see in his 4.5's actually hmmmm
In Utero

Grunge is good, yeah
7The Kinks
The Village Green Preservation Society

I actually haven't heard this one yet, but other Kinks releases I've heard are great so this is prob great. Hmmmmmmm
Bonsai Superstar

If this list were about my ratings, this and Long Hair would be swapped, but hey a 4's still a good rating for the best noise rock album ever.
Tago Mago

Classic stuff, good pick
10Cocteau Twins

3 of my 5's in his 4's in a row, dang.
The Ape Of Naples

Honestly, this album is VERY overrated, but check other Coil maybe Love's Secret Domain? I think you could like it though maybe Musick to Play in the Dark Vol. 1 is more your thing? But seriously guys The Ape of Naples is not Coil's best grrr.
First Utterance

I have this 4'd too.
13David Bowie
Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps)

Best Bowie, nice. Ziggy's great too obviously.
14Dead Can Dance
Within the Realm of a Dying Sun

Accidentally missed this in his 4.5's and got to his 4's and was like "you like Spleen and Serpent more than Realm?" I was incorrect there, he does not prefer those.
15Frank Zappa
Hot Rats

Another one of my 5s. Something, something check more by him something, something The Grand Wazoo.
16Kate Bush
The Dreaming

I prefer Hounds, but I mean this is still glorious.
17Meat Puppets
Meat Puppets II

I mean this and Up on the Sun are both fantastic yeah. Good pick.

Also fantastic weirdo noise rock. Good shit.
Double Nickels on the Dime

Yup this is fantastic. Need to check more by day.
20Mr. Bungle

Weird this album is probably one of my least listened to 5's nowadays, but it's still awesome and I AM Sputnamed after a song on here.
21Nine Inch Nails
The Downward Spiral

I guess I prefer Year Zero because I'm that guy... but this is still a great one. Nice.
22Pink Floyd
The Dark Side of the Moon

Surprised you like Piper so much, but I guess the other 2 don't surprise me (also good of course,) but where's Animals? :o
Surfer Rosa

Another one of my 5s. Damn, I think if Mort gave me the aux, he wouldn't actually mind my choices.

I think anyone with ears like this one tbh, so good choice.
25Sonic Youth
Daydream Nation

Whoo another one of my 5s. I deff recommend Washing Machine next based on your ratings.
26Talking Heads
Remain in Light

When is this band gonna have a revival hit like Kate Bush and Fleetwood Mac did? They're obviously a good candidate and can we please make sure it's Once in a Lifetime and not Psycho Killer or Burnin Down the House? Yeah yeah yeah
27The Beatles
Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band

Uh idk what is there to say about this band at this point.
28The Jesus Lizard

Do I prefer Goat or Liar? hmmmm I may never know. Maybe Mort feels the same because he has both 5'd.
29The Velvet Underground
The Velvet Underground

Interesting. Not talked about as much on here as it should be.

CONCLUSION: You may think some people have very different tastes based on assumptions, but there's always more crossover than you think. 9 years of Mort....9 years of Ars what a day :D
