Yo, my last fm is: http://www.last.fm/user/kirbijackson7

As you can probably tell, Biffy Clyro are my favourite band.. I listen to pretty much anything though. I'll be checking out Tracy Chapman's self titled now.

So I listened to the Tracy Chapman album and I thought it was pretty cool. The instrumentation can be a little bland and at times makes the album teeter on the edge of sounding like something you could buy at Starbucks, but the album has two big saving graces that make things much more interesting. First of all, there's the acute social consciousness of Chapman's lyrics. Throughout the album she deftly tackles issues of race and class in a way that's direct without being preachy (except I guess for "Talkin' 'Bout a Revolution," but there that's kind of the point seeing as it's an old-school anthemic protest song, and a pretty good one at that). Second, obviously, there's Chapman's unique and powerful low singing voice. It reminds me a little of the more recent work of Mavis Staples.

So even though "Fast Car" is the catchier, more obvious standout track, I think the highlight of the album for me might be the spare "Behind the Wall," which takes full advantage of both aspects I talked about and strips everything else away entirely, to great, haunting effect.

Listened to Tracy Chapman's self-titled today. I've heard plenty of songs from this record before, but hearing them all together on the album really gives them a whole new weight and feeling. Her lyrics across the entire album feel very sincere, you can tell that she's truly trying to convey a message with these songs and does so very convincingly with her unique and memorable voice. This is an album for getting up early in the morning and sombrely drinking coffee to.

I can definitely get behind that. The other stand-out track for me was Mountain O' Things, the instrumentation on that was well put together and really helped break up the fairly run-of-the-mill and samey instrumentals that the album has one pretty much every other track.

Woo! This was actually pretty difficult because so many of the things I would have picked are from the same decade as last week's, but I guess this week (unless you guys are cooler than I thought and have all listened to it already, in which case I have some backups) we'll listen to:

Big Star - #1 Record (1972)

Big Star, sadly unappreciated during the band's brief lifetime but now rightfully revered by a large cult audience, is pretty much indisputably the best power pop band of all time. Shepherded by the creative forces of Chris Bell and Alex Chilton, the band's songs are alternately suffused with both youthful pop exuberance and an undercurrent of yearning and melancholy. They may not have the universal recognition and acclaim of some other bands' albums, but #1 Record and Radio City (and, okay @Slint, maybe Third) are true pop masterpieces that deserve to be held up there with the best of the best. To quote The Replacements, "I never travel far without a little Big Star."

And even if you're not familiar with the band's music there's a good chance you'll recognize one of the songs on this album from somewhere else...

8/10 album. I TOLD YOU THIRD IS BETTER. Next time you're going to get it nerd.

Anyway, this album is really good, you guys should definitely listen to it. Thirteen gives me massive feels.

Other highlights for me are Feel, Don't Lie To Me and When My Baby's Beside Me.

My first contact with Big Star was with Third I think, so that might have something to do with it. It sounded so different from that era, since I expected another band jacking off with guitars while singing in a relatively high pitched voice. Instead what I got was excellent songwritting and good lyrics. THANK YOU BASED CHILTON.

FWIW I almost picked The Frogs' It's Only Right and Natural, so you guys should consider yourselves lucky.

Yeah man. "If it's so, well let me know / if it's no, well I can go." Oof, right in the memory.

Chris Bell's You and Your Sister (with Chilton on backing vocals!) might be even more heartbreaking.

Other highlights for me are Feel, Don't Lie To Me and When My Baby's Beside Me.

The highlights for me are everything that isn't "The India Song." But especially "Thirteen," "Ballad of El Goodo," and "Feel."

Though clearly the all-time best Big Star track (and really one of the best pop songs of, like, the 20th century) is September Gurls. Actually I waffle back and forth on liking Radio City better than #1 Record overall, I just picked the latter because I think it's a better introduction to the band, plus it's the only album with the full original lineup.

Oh man that song. I do like it, but everytime it came up I had to check my iPod to see what it was, it felt so out of place.

Though clearly the all-time best Big Star track (and really one of the best pop songs of, like, the 20th century) is September Gurls.

As much as I love September Gurls and Radio City, my favourite Big Star song is probably Kizza Me for how fun and well written it is, or Big Black Car, for being one of the saddest songs I've heard and being really good. Or You Get What You Deserve.
By the way, you know of any tabs of You Get What You Deserve? I always wanted to learn that song, but I'm terrible at picking up by hear.

Huh, I'm surprised you're not a bigger Frogs fan. They seem to be pretty in line with your musical/comedic sensibilities, just, y'know, with a lot more explicit references to gay sex.

It's Only Right and Natural isn't their most technically accomplished album, but I think it best captures the spirit of the band. I love the scrappy off-the-cuff nature of the music (like how sometimes they'll start cracking up in the middle of a line) and the lyrics and their delivery are hilarious. There's just nothing else quite like them.

For me it's the WON'T YOU LET ME WALK YOU HOME FROM SCHOOL. Not because I actually did that, but that time of innocence and discovery and first love is like a punch in the gut.

Yup, the song takes me right back, the joy and the pain. I practically respond to it the same way Elaine's boyfriend responds to "Desperado" in that one episode of Seinfeld.

When I come back I'll definitely listen to this.

When you get the chance you should check out I Am the Cosmos, which collects all of Chris Bell's solo material. It's almost like having extra Big Star songs.

By the way, you know of any tabs of You Get What You Deserve? I always wanted to learn that song, but I'm terrible at picking up by hear.

Nah, I've actually looked for them myself but no dice so far.

Didn't get a chance to listen to #1 Record until just a minute ago, so these are some super underdeveloped first impressions right here.

It's definitely a solid record. Some very memorable hooks and melodies combined with very tight harmonies. I'd say the vocals are by far the strongest part of the album, but the instrumentals are performed pretty well too. Without a doubt I'd say that the highlight track was Thirteen, the lyrics really do stick with you on that one. The lyricism across the whole record and simple, easy to grasp, but still very strong and relatable.

And now for this week's picker. Since he's the only one who participated this week and hasn't gone yet, it looks like @Slint gets to choose this week's album! Your choice should be from a different genre, decade, and if you want to be a really cool dude, a different country. Have fun with it or whatever.

Aww shit, the time has come.

Here goes then:

Mclusky - Mclusky Do Dallas

I first heard of this post-hardcore gem thanks to a NME issue regarding lost classics - great records not many people heard of. I happily went throught them all and it would all be worth it just to find this one album (I found plenty).

Mclusky would never be this good again, unfortunately, and some of you might have heard of Future of the Left, the frontman's next band. None of this comes close to this album, which I'd rate a 9.5/10

I try not to inflate ratings and I have stellar taste, so keep in mind that score is well deserved.

I went through last fm to check if any of you had listened to this and apparently not so we're good.

There it is folks, tell me your favourite songs off it, what you thought about it, etc. I'm purposedly not talking about how it sounds, so go listen.

Check out that sweet cover too, and the title is a reference to the porno Debbie Does Dallas.

alright here we go

I was almost going to skip over this because I generally don't like post hardcore but I trusted you, Slint...I trusted you...and dear god am I happy I did. This was a pleasant surprise and I give it a solid 7/10. It's not as overbearing as most of the post hardcore I've dwelled into but it's definitely got me interested in finding more bands like 'em, might even check out the frontman's other band despite your warning. The beginning of the album is great, really drew me in, but towards the middle, specifically "Fuck this Band" it kind of drops off and just barely picks up to the pace it was at before. For me it's not a perfect album but I really like it.

As for favorites, fucking loved No New Wave No Fun and Collagen Rock. No New Wave No Fun reminded me a lot of Death From Above 1979, but edged out to be a little better.

Glad you liked it mang. And it's really all I could hope for, someone who doesn't really enjoy post hardcore, and still handing out a 7 I think that's really good. I'm looking at the album right now and I understand what you mean about after Fuck this Band... I don't quite feel that way but I get it! But still I think the album goes out with a bang, that whole "COCA COLA" segment in Who You Know is fantastic. Honestly the only time I feel there's a slight drop on quality is on Review the Reviewers.

This is pretty much exactly how I summed up the album. It started off brilliantly and I was really looking forward to going through the album, but once it hit Fuck This Band it kind of dropped down unexpectedly, and like you say, didn't really pick back up until Whoyouknow and even then it wasn't much.

The songs from Fuck This Band onward weren't bad by any means, but it was just a strange direction for the album to go I felt. I'll definitely be listening to this through a few more times at least, I can see myself really getting into this band.

I agree also with your score, 7/10 is pretty spot on for this album.

Definitely one of the better AOTW's so far. Great choice.

Each week we listen to an album that someone picked and talk about it, then on Sunday another person that participated that week is randomly chosen to pick the next record. That's about all there is to it, pretty much just a book club for albums. Regular ol' Last.fm Club conversation still sorta goes on here, though. We still sometimes post charts or just talk about whatever new releases we've listened to. This is just something we've been doing to keep some fresh conversation going, we're on our 8th week now and it's been pretty fun.

So, Mclusky - Mclusky Do Dallas. I put this on, and 15 seconds into the opening track I knew that I was going to love this album. The record is genuinely intense. I know that Twilight and Snuff think it drops off towards the second half, but I think even on the more laidback tracks it has a certain raw aesthetic that keeps them from feeling out of place, and instead it feels like they're catching their breath before coming right back.

The bass playing on this is really nice, it's not too flashy and really gives the songs a certain flavour that really helps it feel dirty and raw. The sloppy and whiny guitar leads are nice too, they fill in the high end without being ear-piercing like a lot of other post-hardcore guitars can be. The drums are pretty straight forward and simple, but there's nothing wrong with that. They hold down the tracks and give them a strong foundation and that's really all I can ask for. Overall, I'd definitely say the highlight is Falkous' vocals. He's just plain incredible across the entire album. If I had one complaint about this record, it would probably be the lyrics. They didn't "rub me the wrong way" or anything, but at times they just didn't click with me at all. Luckily the vocal delivery is so good that he could only be singing the word "watermelon" in every song and I would still love it.

Givin' this album an 8.5/10, and people usually think I hate everything because of how conservative I am with my ratings so that's p good yo.

I actually kind of hate punk but I thoughtMcluscky Do Dallas was actually pretty alright. I'm not one who usually cares about lyrics but punk's whole 'anarchy, down with the system' stuff always made the fact that they were groaning and whining like angsty kids even worse.

But Mcluscky Do Dallas was funny and not abrasive so I ended up liking it a lot more. Lightsabre Cocksucking Blues, To Hell With Good Intentions, and Whoyouknow were highlights

So I listened to the Mclusky album and I really dug it! I don't really know what to say specifically, this kind of music is pretty much right up my alley but I'd never heard of this band before. So thanks!

As far as the back half of the album taking a dip in quality goes, I don't know what you guys are talking about, pretty much all of my favorite tracks come near the end of the album, the biggest standout for me being the Pavement/Pixies-ish "Alan is a Cowboy Killer."
