All I was saying is that Rollins Band is in no way the worst thing he has associated himself with. They were a hard working, occasionally decent rock band in both incarnations.

if you want the free pass to be dropped because he's made some poor artistic choices then you've sort of missed the point of a free pass, I think?

This is a very good point, but note that they were asking you a question, not making a statement. Specifically, their question was "Do you forgive him for this misstep as well?" and it appears your answer is "yes."

Jens, I was just saying that I was surprised you picked Rollins band as the worst thing he has done, since I actually like some of their stuff and can't stand wartime.

And Tommy, Loose Nut and In My Head are both awesome. I don't know what you are talking about there. And he has a tendency to be the best part of the terrible movies he is in.

Honestly, I think these two records are not just bad but appalling. I cannot imagine listening to them by choice, apart from maybe skipping around as a joke. Truly horrible music, at least to my ears.

If you like them, fair play to you. I can't stand them even as a joke.

Differing tastes, I guess. I see them as proto-sludge albums, just with a lot more energy than most sludge.

John Darnielle, although I say without the slightest bit of hyperbole that I do not ever see him having to use it.

So true. The Life of the World to Come may not have been complete solid gold like some other Mountain Goats albums, but got damn it's still fucking great.

It's had a second life with me in the past couple of weeks, and it's still revealing new facets to me. Mtn Gts albums always take a while for me to tease themselves out in full, I'm still finding myself liking tracks from The Sunset Tree more and more with each listen.

Also, to address JHo's criteria from earlier in the thread, were Darnielle to collaborate with ICP, this is possibly what we'd get

Quote from: John Darnielle
For once, when at the Frisco bay,
with Faygo and in pensive mood,
a pelican my cellphone ate
or tried to, which I thought was rude;
And then my heart with pleasure fills,
to recognize these mirakills.

Quote from: John Darnielle
the best ever clown makeup band outta Houston

since their grade school'd expelled them

I'd give Spike Jonze a lifetime pass almost entirely for his Gap ad.

Hey dude fuck you, Bob Dylan's released a LOT of dreck but he's still managed to continue putting out great stuff even in the last half of his career. Infidels, Oh Mercy, Time out of Mind, Love and Theft...

yeah, fuck the Christmas album, though.
