I'm diggin this a lot.
Not a fan
Okay it has either been too long since I spun my CBGP vinyl or I have never spun side B.... because there's a track on here after 3/4 Tango that I'm pretty sure I've never heard before
Oh man, I think that's the third one from the EP that preceded the album right? Killer song! Forgot about it.
E: Close Knit!! Man, the ending is huge.
Close Knit might be my favorite song of theirs.
The Best B-Side...
This one is pretty good:
Close Knit originally was The View, The Life 7" that preceded the album, but for some reason it got tacked on at the end of the vinyl too. I never heard a reasoning behind that, haha. It's a great song.
I didn't like what I heard from Wax Bottles, at all
Close Knit is easily my favorite song from Polar Bear Club.
Take Me to the Town is my eternal jam
Bottled Wind is their best song
this is of course to say nothing of Pawner, a song so great that it has transcended songness and therefore cannot feasibly be their best song
I want to unapologetically state that I still think Death Chorus is a really good album and that Jimmy’s voice has a very unique tone and that it fits very well.
Death Chorus is damn good.
STJD is ten years old this year. I hope they have some kind of reunion.
Blood Balloon and Upstate Mosquito are two of my favorite PBC songs, regardless of album. I agree that Death Chorus is very underrated.
And if there was some PBC reunion show that would be the one band that would actually force me to fly across the country to go see.
Death Chorus has a few good songs but it's a terrible album in comparison to CBGP. CBGP is one of my all-time favorite albums and I still come back to it at least once every month or two.
Death Chorus is just such a jarring change from their past work - it's not a bad album, it's just not a band I would've cared to listen to
Play even a solid song like "Upstate Mosquito" next to a track like "See The Wind" and its not even the same band or genre of music
Death Chorus is pretty terrible aside from a few songs
Can we all just agree that this is the best DC song?
Blood Balloon is my favorite, WLWYCD is good and Upstate Mosquito is fine
I'd rather listen to anything else in the world than Souxie Jean
I’ll take Twang and So I Buy over WLWYCD
Still the only PBC song I don’t like, and I have that 4 song EP from 2005 haha
So I Buy and For Show are good too forgot about those
I’ve decided that I will travel across the country to see them play STJD. Your move, Polar Bear Club.
