If I Don't Write is great - almost an endurance trial of just milking
one slightly interesting rhythm pattern over and over and some kind of
bland lyrics, but a couple particular lines and one of their first
really effective choruses make it a standout. Rusty's beautiful also.
i'm forever taunted by Travis's threats to resurrect Fantastic! live.
there are a lot of long-dormant songs from those first 2 albums that
would be great for them to dig up and reinvent a little.
still, it sounds like a demo compared to the other records, but if you
get used to that bratty vibe and thin sound, they did what they were
doing back then pretty well.
