Puppets and Justice was them being experimental and a little weird when they finally had the notoriety and success to do so and before they started making music for Jock Jams #69 and Dodge commercials.
My Dinosaur Life is part 2 of a trilogy to me. The album before it, Even If It Kills Me, is a masterpiece of the genre; is the dark album. The band almost broke up touring for Commit this to memory and this is what Justin wrote during that tour.
My Dinosaur Life is the “ok, I’m getting over it” album. Her Worlds Destroyed My Plant is a fucking banger. Worker Bee opens The Weekends closes the album off the album perfectly.
Go isn’t as usually reviewed as well but that’s the “I’m ready to love again” album in my brain. Happy Anniversary is my favorite of that one. It’s not a perfect album but it’s a good booked to the set.
Listen to those albums 1,2,3 and you can hear the growth from one to the next.
I know a couple Oppos are into this music, I gotta make more music threads. With music, most of the time I’m still the 16-22 year old emo kid and that’s never going away.
@Just-Jeepin I don't know what this means, and I assume there is a VW meetup in Lake Havasu, but I saw at least 7 VW buses (T2 I guess) in 20 minutes driving on Sunday morning and maybe one of them was white, none were black.
@Mr-Ontop Great song. When that song was new I had an 88 Accord coupe with a fart can exhaust and a killer stereo. There is one part in the song where, at cruising speed, the bass was in perfect frequency and phase shift where it would silence both the stereo an the exhaust. Freaky.
@beefchips Flogging Molly is a throwback. I own a few of their albums but The High Kings is where it's at. My sister did their publicity and transportation long ago but I still have a place in my heart for clean renditions of classic Irish folk songs. And they have come in clutch at Renaissance festivals this year...
