Losing My Edge.

flappy bird, Saturday, 2 September 2017 06:55 (two weeks ago) Permalink

Absolutely brilliant conceit paired with utterly compelling minimalism in the arrangement, and releasing it as their first song ever.

flappy bird, Saturday, 2 September 2017 06:59 (two weeks ago) Permalink

Yeah, they've done a lot of great, great songs, but Losing My Edge is all time. Still sounds like nothing else.

Tribulations because it still appears in my head every now and then

devvvine, Saturday, 2 September 2017 11:54 (two weeks ago) Permalink

I haven't heard this record in years. Glancing at the track list, Tribulations is the one I immediately started singing.

Voted Yeah (Crass Version).

"Daft Punk..." -- it brings back a host of memories dancing at indie bars in spring '05. "Tribulations" because it's the most through-written new song.

Totally unfair poll by including the bonus disc.

Jersey Al (Albert R. Broccoli), Saturday, 2 September 2017 15:13 (two weeks ago) Permalink

I didn't listen to the bonus disc much tbh

Yeah pretentious version, the rest is mostly worthless to me

brimstead, Saturday, 2 September 2017 15:18 (two weeks ago) Permalink

"Tribulations" is pretty good

brimstead, Saturday, 2 September 2017 15:19 (two weeks ago) Permalink

gonna have to give this a listen. haven't heard this in at least a decade.

hell, im going to put on the Rapture and some DFA comps as well. might as well make a day of it.

AdamVania (Adam Bruneau), Saturday, 2 September 2017 17:44 (two weeks ago) Permalink

woah i only had the one disc version missing all the tracks from Losing My Edge on

AdamVania (Adam Bruneau), Saturday, 2 September 2017 17:48 (two weeks ago) Permalink

two things im noticing on re-listen:

1) i forgot how much he did the Mark E. Smith trick of ending most words with a vocal tic "set them up-ah". i don't think he really does this anymore but back in the day that was a big part of the sound for me. the early stuff has more of a don't-give-a-shit vibe because of it, and i think that was more appealing. they take themselves too seriously now.

2) dude has a great ear for percussion. you've got drumset, handclaps, hand drums, cowbell, all kinds of bells and whistles, etc. imo this kind of stuff can really make a song and one of the reasons he was a good producer out of the gate was getting that right.

josh az (2011nostalgia), Sunday, 3 September 2017 22:55 (two weeks ago) Permalink

I'm probably the only person who's going to vote for Yr City's A Sucker.

they rarely got better than Beat Connection for me.

Their first single is their best single...
