  1. Whoa, whoa, whoa--let's not get carried away now... other users might want some merch *nudge*nudge*wink*wink So while my not-so-subtle hint at acquiring a slice of this pie is completely sincere... I just want to say that I'm sorry Personally, my brain could earn a gold medal in gymnastics for the amount of exceptions and rationalizions it took to maintain a fair amount of my Matt Good fandom... but reading through this thread, it's a little annoying to witness all the vitriol that's been thrown your way, simply because your core principles and values render you unable to
  2. Despite my somewhat lukewarm relationship w/ the album, those first 2 tracks are total bangers (and coincidentally, I had them queued up in my playlist earlier today!). It's difficult to articulate exactly why, but something about the title track and Via Dolorosa just tap into my lizard brain. There's a sense of urgency, desperation, optimism, aggression... I dunno how to describe it, but they clicked w/ me immediately, and I've been enjoying them ever since ;D
  3. Wow. Just wow. For my money, Matthew Good is firing on all cylinders--i am absolutely loving this era of his career: Moving Walls just completely torpedoed me back into fandom-mode, and this "Crisis Airlines" collection? Wonderful Not quite sure what I was anticipating prior to listening (maybe a few slightly north of average b-sides?), but this is something wholly separate from the place I imagined Good to be. As much I adore MW, what perhaps is fueling my excitement for MG's output even more is how quickly and effortlessly this little side project seems to've taken shape. The music i
  4. damn. MG is doing things to me; I'm really enjoying this. Gonna give Mark Hollis a listen soon, as well edit: and thanks for bringing this to my attention!
  5. god i love this album. it's like aural sex
  6. I don't post much here... honestly, the past few albums didn't really do it for me. Don't get me wrong, there've certainly been a handful of songs on each record that I really love, but on the whole--his output just wasn't hitting me as hard as it used to. So I finally decided to give Moving Walls a go, and... Wow. Good knocked this out of the park, and it's the perfect album for me right now. I want to really go into detail, but school's got me burning the candle at both ends atm, so that'll have to wait for another day. But I just want to say that the record feels like a sola
  7. haha I love stuff like this. Wish I could remember the board I posted on back then (something like "Flickerstick" I thiiiiink... fuck. that was 20 years ago )
  8. I feel I must amend this post: Lights of Endangered Species is probably neck-and-neck w/ Hospital Music in regards to its overall "completeness" as a record. Hard to say which one I'd rank above the other--honestly, it just sorta depends on the day I guess lol... But there's no time like the present, and right now I'd argue LoES is Matthew Good's best work.
  9. Interesting. Kinda surprised by his good-but-not-great sentiments toward Lights of Endangered Species. I know this sort of stuff is all subjective, but it's like splitting hairs for me between that album, Hospital Music, and Avalanche (toss in Beautiful Midnight if we're including MGB)... though when push comes to shove, I might have to concur with HM standing above the rest (though only by mere millimeters, imo): it might not reach the peaks of Avalanche or become as adventurous and daring as LoES, but, to my ears, it's his most complete record.
  10. I know it's kind of a cliche, but Song For the Girl is rancid dick. Granted, music is subjective, so whatever. But the objective failure of the song is that its deleterious to Avalanche as an album, and that just exacerbates my contempt for the tune. The lyrics are hollow, the melody is uninspired, and it taints a record that would otherwise be, imo, a masterpiece. edit: i really just don't like this song.
  11. Missed the song unfortunately, but I just wanted to chime in and say that I'm really liking the lyrics. They don't really have any answers But they're great at pointing fingers It's a pretty simple, straight-forward line--doesn't specifically scream "politics!"--but goddamn, who can read this and not think of the GOP? It captures a sentiment that happens to be political rather than painting a picture that is political, if that makes sense. Also: And baby you know that I’ve wasted a lot of time A lot of time just thinking When thinking’s overrated Compared to reactionary
  12. lol I'm still waiting for him to announce a Louisiana date
  13. Lucky you! I'm not holding my breath for a tour stop in New Orleans lol
  14. Haven't heard Night Orders, but it seems like I may have potentially missed something that was kinda sorta possibly something quasi-special. Now I'm curious... I wonder which of MG's songs has gestated the longest--what's the oldest tune from genesis to prime time deliverance? Is there a good chance Night Orders will show up on a future record, or is every album "of the moment," where nothing old is borrowed?? Now I want a documentary on MG's recording process. How does each album start? Just a series of late night/ early morning jam sessions that slowly reveal something to cling to, or is the
