All Souls Day

Mr. Que, Monday, 16 March 2009 15:53 (ten years ago) link

this may be my favorite Unwound record--hard to say

Mr. Que, Monday, 16 March 2009 15:53 (ten years ago) link

I can't choose. I can only choose the few lesser ones. so many vital choices.

Automatic thread bump. This poll is closing tomorrow.

Went with All Souls Day, although Hex and Usual Dosage would get equal billing

if they had put Mkultra and Totality as bonus tracks, it would been a fite between those two with Mkultra winning

this is the best of the 90s ones i think so sure

I thought this was such a horrible sophomore slump when it came out. Now I enjoy it with all the rest.

Abstraktions is pretty tough to beat here.

I wouldn't have used the word horrible, but I was initially bummed too. I think the reason why was there was no "Valentine/Kantina/Was Is Were Are Etc" type thing on it. That trifecta is unfukwitable. But yeah, when Unwound started proving they could put out good albums every year on the dot, my opinion changed.

By the time the "next" Unwound album came out, I was finally getting the previous one. That ended after Repetition when they toured the world, and the pattern stopped. anyway, Unwound are one of the best 90s artists hands down. I never expected them to have such a long career, but I never expected them to be kinda slept on today either.

So.. Future of What poll next?

bear, bear, bear, Saturday, 21 March 2009 20:45 (ten years ago) link

Yeah what other band made that many great records in a row? Seriously?

Nate Carson, Saturday, 21 March 2009 20:56 (ten years ago) link

Even Fake Train was a mild disappointment to me (though I listened to it incessantly from the day it was released). Those songs had so much more life and bite on stage. Steve Fisk really knows how to take the balls out of a recording.

Nate Carson, Saturday, 21 March 2009 20:58 (ten years ago) link

a Repetition poll would be awesome...

turtles all the way down (Face of Wolf), Saturday, 21 March 2009 21:00 (ten years ago) link

Future of What was always my fave album.

I definitely prefer it to the (really, really good) Repetition

bear, bear, bear, Saturday, 21 March 2009 21:29 (ten years ago) link

an Unwound album poll would be awesome

turtles all the way down (Face of Wolf), Saturday, 21 March 2009 21:31 (ten years ago) link

i think there was one

but along with the husker du poll i did it cant be found via search. But both do exist.

Future of What is a good choice for best Unwound album.
Fake Train is the early classic.
Leaves Turn Inside You is the sleeper.
Repetition has the best single.

I think the fourth time I saw them was the week Fake Train came out. They were opening for Drive Like Jehu.

Nate Carson, Saturday, 21 March 2009 22:28 (ten years ago) link

totally agree with all of that.

Mr. Que, Saturday, 21 March 2009 22:57 (ten years ago) link

Automatic thread bump. This poll's results are now in.

System, Sunday, 22 March 2009 00:01 (ten years ago) link
