Disappear like I come in your world
Five is a number that I dream about
It looks like it could’ve been time
But that is a word that I dream about
Oh, felt good to fall life down
Oh, I think you like it, laughed when you came down
Oh, I love the lights that don’t turn you to face it
Oh, you can marry my mom but
But you can’t get the feel
Well, with all the travel and subsequent catching up to do, I only got up the two posts last week, REM & Le Loup. On top of that, immediately after the Le Loup post, I put REM back on and couldn’t stop listening! Live, Green on Vinyl, and my own little 78 song Best Of, it was ridiculous!!! I was guilt-ridden, my dear friends, and completely stuck (it happens occasionally when I listen to my favorite bands, I go through a span where that’s all I’ll want). I had to break the spell!
What better way than to spend a few hours working on a vinyl rip?
After a few older albums, it was time for something a little more current, Broken Social Scene’s self-titled 2005 release. It’s actually a 2xLP release, taking up 3 sides of some insanely heavy vinyl, the 4th side an EP. To keep pure with the album release, I’m only posting the true album, not the EP.
What can I say about this release that hasn’t been written in a shit load of reviews and what now? The hype and expectations were over the top after You Forgot It In People was gobbled up by the music geeks and critics alike. So this album, which ups the ante a quite a bit, including a cast of 17 people, could only disappoint. Expectations are a bitch…
It’s a shame, because it’s amazing, so rich, textured, expansive, offering more and more with every listen. On vinyl, it only sounds that much better! I’m really happy with the way this one came out… I think you will, as well.
For those shit-heads who poo-poo’d this album, it’s time to give it a second chance. For those who never heard it, oh man, get ready, you are in for a treat… it’s a doozy though, so get ready! Alright, time to shut up, and get your download on as…
