You'd bold Yanqui? I always thought it was universally held as a let-down. I can't say though since I don't follow reviews.

I thought it was regarded as a good album, just not as good as their other 2 albums.

I'd red Slow Riot and unbold Yanqui.

Really? I thought a lot of people regarded Slow Riot as their best release.

f#a#oo is pretty overrated, IMO. Lots of meandering that really detracts from it. At times it's as apocalyptic as it tries to be, but often it's just pointless. Lift Yr. Skinny Fists meanders a bunch, too, but not nearly as distractingly.

Maybe, but Lift Yr. Skinny Fists is just this massive opus and gets a lot of respect as one of the key albums of the 00s, and since you can't have more oranges than reds, one of them needs to be red. I feel like Slow Riot is a lot less momentous than Lift Yr. Skinny Fists (though it is a better place to start).

Maybe I enjoy it the most because of all their albums that one I've had the best experience with. Listening to it in the dark rules.

No doubt. f#a#oo captures a sense of desolation and atmosphere that they never reached again, which I find a bit disappointing, but one of my favorite bands regardless.

F#a#oo just hit me! I always thought it was inferior to Skinny Fists, but I've just had one of the best listening experiences of my life to it.

thanks for reminding me about how all 3 Montreal shows sold out within 5 minutes of going live. They say they may announce dates but if they don't... :nono: :nono: :nono:
