Whatever, i couldn't give a shit about the singing and lyrics, i was talking about the composition of the songs, man. You gotta respect well composed songs as a whole and not just be deterred by one aspect, i.e: Martsch's occasional high pitched singing.

And i've never heard of jacob miller, but if he is a jazz artist he should have a dedication thread.

Great band, one of the few bands I can count on to make a great record each time.

Keep it like a secret is for sure the best album to start out on. Its interesting though because i got into them by randomly finding a song they did with caustic resin (a four song  demo disk called, not surprisingly built to spill caustic resin) called she's real. The song is actaully a cover of another bands' song.

They also have this live album that is insane-- there is a 20 minute cover of cortez the killer and a 20 minute version of broken chairs. Pretty cool if you ask me, being a Huge fan of Neil Young.

borrowed the newest album from library yesterday, and after one listening i think it was really good. i've never been much of a fan so i cant really compare it to older albums, just to some songs i've heard before. i'll have to look for older albums as well.

Been really enjoying this album at work lately, a mix of a band I love covering another amazing musician. Built to Spill fucking rules.
i like the tiny headed bear who says nice stuff to everyone.

Yeah their sets are endurance tests.  I saw some of the covid zoom sets, those were cool.  What about Halo Benders?

There is No Enemy is my favorite album from them. I burned out on Keep it Like A Secret. There is No Enemy has more longevity. Planting Seeds and Things Fall Apart 1-2 punch? You can't fuck with that. That album is still super accessible for someone just getting into them, too.
