I didn't actually dislike a single one of their albums through "The King Is Dead"
...hell, I didn't even dislike their silly rock opera, and yes, Castaways & Cutouts is still a five-star masterwork IMO, but yes, thinking about the sort of shameless hope I had for them really does make me cringe. I think it was around the time of The Crane Wife that I sort of realized that lots of people secretly hated them and by the time of the silly rock opera the hatred was getting pretty open.
Hey, at least I never liked "The Mariner's Revenge Song." That thing was always totally awful.
WTF??!? Picking his feet and eating it? Do you have a link and a timestamp? That sounds absolutely disgusting!!
