    • I've listened to 80 hours of Zappa on Pandora the last 2 weeks. I think this Ranker is solid. I'd put Joe's Garage and Rueben and the Jets higher.

        I'll still take "Mary, Did You Know?" over McCartney's "Wonderful Christmastime", which nearly cancels out almost every other song he ever wrote.

                She has an amazing voice that was absolutely wasted on 97% of the garbage her label had her record.

                When she sings a great song she is among the finest performers I have ever heard.

                  I grew up thinking these guys both sucked but Hall's great podcast has shown me that it was Oates who sucked twice.
                  Nope. Oates' vocal on She's Gone alone wins him a lifetime pass against such criticism.

                  Plus, he co-wrote one of my all-time guilty pleasures, Icehouse's Electric Blue.

                    That song is... very not good.

                      So since I am spending the weekend in Bob Stinson's old apartment, I figured why not go on a Replacements jag. I forgot that the turn in sound from their first couple of records to Let It Be is really stark. Like, right from Track 1 "I Will Dare" they went from an above average garage hardcore band, to something you might hear on commercial radio and think, "Hey, this is awesome, I actually wanna go see this band!" I don't think there's a bad or repetitive song on it, but it is a much 'wetter' record.

                      Then going into Tim, I can't say enough how hilariously demeaning and yet catchy "Waitress in the Sky" is, having been obviously written from the perspective of an entitled male frequent flier at the tail end of the era when smoking was still allowed and "accidentally" spilling your drink in your lap was a thing.
                      I don't even think they were an average hardcore band. To me, it always felt they were just playing at being one cause that was what was expected. It wasn't until Westerberg began to embrace his true inner self and influences that their genius began to show.

                      the Replacements reissue of TIM!!! THIS is simply a completely different album. And vastly superior to what was already great. I WILL be shelling out the $ to get this vinyl because it’s that great.
                      Put in my pre-order when this was first announced. And you're right. the only bum turn for me is the extra synths and piano bits on Here Comes A Regular. The synths are just too much, they're better when used sparingly, and the piano takes away the impact that it has when it finally comes in on the original.

                      If you want it, better pick it up quick. Jason at Rhino Records says they have no more in their warehouse, and it will not be getting a re-press. What's out there currently is all that's left.

                      • Hall and Oates by and large sucks hard, but this is a proper track.

                          It's elevator music, but that is a nice porn stache.

                            Did you listen for more than 5 seconds? It does get better.

                            Also I'm trying to be nice.

                            • 1970's Hall and Oates was damn good. Post 1980, when they got huge, is largely pop drivel.

                              There was a video on YouTube, I went searching for it the other day and couldn't find it, of them playing Do What You Want, Be What You Are on Germany's Rockpalast I think it was, from sometimes around 1977 that was just amazing.

                              Elevator music it was not. Sometimes Kep needs to come down off his high horse.

                              • This is close to that performance.

                                https://youtu.be/sa0GYVEuwSs?si=IHkzG_MArQeUJceS

                                That would be 19 year old Todd Sharp on lead guitar.
