St. Anger - I still like parts of the title track (it had a cool video too) but I'm going to guess that maybe 60 of its 75 minutes are still sh*t. I kind of like Lars banging on that copper pipe actually in a couple of songs, but only a couple. Load is "King Nothing" and 74 other minutes of very lackluster stuff IMO. But that's just it--"lackluster." Not "awful," just "eghn."
I keep forgetting to hear the rest of post-1968 Byrds as well...
Crosby - That's a good album. A total load of dreamy mush but the whole scene showed up to help him make it, ignore the dumb critics on this one. Hey, I like Crosby's dreamy mush on the CSN(Y) albums so why not a whole disc of it?
Sebadoh - Heard III, forgot the rest. Uh, I guess I'll get to it one of these days.
Gentle Giant - Acquiring The Taste is their high point. Dark and eerie and even Halloweenish in spots and they really worked much harder on these songs than the ones on the wintery debut album. The album cover looks like butt-alangus. Three Friends is okay, mostly for "Schooldays" and the last track with the loud dark Mellotron.
