The Classic Album Thread

Post by Bandit » Tue Sep 25, 2018 1:22 am



Weezer has been bad for a long time (Maladroit was their last good one) but Pinkerton is an undisputed classic.

And In Utero turned 25 (it was better than Nevermind)



Also The Beatles are going to release an expanded White Album edition for its 50th anniversary

The Beatles set sounds good as long as its actual songs/demos/song fragments. If it's just "studio chatter" and such it'll be a waste of time. Some of the tracks on I think "Smile" are just talking, one where Brian is arguing with his pop who's telling him how to produce is intriguing.

A great album to go out on. I don't think anyone expected George to have the first best post Beatles album. Had John come out with Imagine first then I think that might have changed the discussion. There's a doc about making the next Beatles album if they had stayed together.

It makes sense he did when you think about it. He'd been writing for 5 years and most of his stuff was getting turned down. Like he came in with a ton of stuff for the White Album they mostly didn't use. So he had quite a stockpile of songs, whereas John and Paul were using theirs every year.

True but you'd have thought John and/or Paul would have been leading the way with the first post Beatles album. Since they were so prolific as songwriters plus there's speculation that some songs were more Paul or John and the Lennon/McCartney credit on the publishing was to equal things out. I believe at one point Paul wanted to amend it as McCartney/Lennon. So in theory McCartney or Plastic Ono Band should have been more successful than George's album.

As you most likely know "Wah Wah" is about John and specifically Paul not letting George put his songs on the Beatles records. He quickly made it up with John though (I doubt they really fell out since they had a brotherly type relationship) and George plays on Imagine and even sings "Its Johnnys Birthday" to John on "All things must pass". Speaking of which you could condense it down to a singular record as in one sitting 3 LPs is a bit too much and he could have saved a lot of the other good songs for his next LP and reworked some of the Apple Jam record into proper songs instead of instrumentals.

Interview with Sananda/TTD about the 25th anniversary of Symphony or Damn, his third LP. Link opens up into a PDF from his website but is an interesting read
