I'd had a few beers last night and had it blasting while my missus was putting the kids to bed. She had to come down and tell me to turn it down.

Absolutely love it.
Next cunt at the door will be Tucker asking to be let back in by the sounds of it.
:-X

Well, I really don't like the new record at all :D even the records I don't care for I usually find a couple of gems to make it worthwhile, but this one I actively dislike.

What did you think Tux? I really hate the production on this. He's starting to sound too settled with this band. I'm not 100% sure how recording for these recent records go down, but it feels like he needs to get back a more DIY approach in the recording. I've liked tracks here & there but the last four proper GBV records I've not really cared for. Even though they do move into different territories they still come across as on the nose ROCK, perhaps its the production or maybe the familiarity of this band. The Cub Scout Bowling Pins releases feel more in line with what I want from a GBV release.

After 3 listens, I find it pretty hit and miss. First track is so weird for a GBV album opener. Quite like the 3 that follow. Then things get s bit all over the place for a while but feel like they pick up a bit again towards the end. I also didn't think Earth Man Blues was very good. Maybe it's time Bob got The Jesus Abyss and Tuckerman in for a new incarnation of GBV.

How Can A Plumb Be Perfected? from Earth Man Blues is bloody great.

I'm in the same camp now Barny. The last five records I've not cared for. Pollard's knack for a great hook seems to be deteriorating & the current lineup of the band are too ROCK for my tastes.

The Who are the exact problem! Get back to farting out minute and a half unfinished ideas that sound like total shit yet contain the greatest hook you've ever heard in your life Pollard you shit-rat!

conversely, I think the last 3 GBV records are among their best. the songs keep getting stuck in my head.

I absolutely love it now btw, some absolute belters on it. GBV fever has gotten me again, working my way backwards through the discography.

Anyone bothered with Tremblers and Goggles by Rank? Gave it a spin yesterday while cooking Sunday lunch and thought it was pretty good. Looking forward to spinning it a bit more throughout this week.
