neckermanncj;3025168 said:everyone will tell you that "Hissing Fauna.... Are You The Destroyer?" is their best, which it might be, but go and listen to "Satanic Panic In The Attic" & "The Sundlandic Twins" both are excellent mixes of their lo-fi Elephant 6 days and their poppy electronic stuff they are doing now, although Satanic and Sundlandic are considered more psychedelic and electronicalso check out "The Gay Parade" & "Coquelicot Asleep in the Poppies: A Variety of Whimsical Verse"they have 9 studio albums, a couple pretty good compilations that have mostly non-album tracks, and a fantastic EP called "Icons, Abstract Thee" just DL their discog if i were you, and then listen to those 2 first i've also seen them twice, once on their Hissing Fauna tour and earlier this year in june, mostly stuff from Skeletal Lamping, and to be honest i could see why that album would turn you off if you weren't a fan of the band before listening to it.

CommonCriminal;3029668 said:They only have two albums, and one of them sucks. That should narrow down your choices.
overcookedbacon;3030526 said:The Stone Roses - The Stone RosesDinosaur Jr - You're Living All Over Me
Alright_Computer;3030665 said:Yeah, like stasis, I like/love every Dinosaur Jr. album, in fact, I did a marathon of every album they released around the time when Farm was released, so not too long ago. I think all of their albums are solid, though I do have to say Bug, You're Living All Over Me, Beyond and Farm are my favorites. I don't know which album I'd choose at gunpoint, and hopefully I won't ever find out.
neckermanncj;3030714 said:yeah, i like all of those equally, i'd say.in all honesty, i think i would pick Farm FYI: DL'ing Sebadoh discog atmAND SERIOUSLY!!!!why the **** does Just Like Heaven cut off earlier than the original, that pisses me off so much!!! :mad:

overcookedbacon;3031281 said:Dinosaur Jr is pretty much my favorite band ever, and I love all of their albums. If I had to choose one to be in RB though, it would be You're Living All Over Me. I'd honestly prefer a "best of" though.

a_bull_on_parade;3036565 said:They have a Greatest Hits I'll take that.
Alright_Computer;3036575 said:In my opinion, it would be a much better idea to get their self-titled album, which is a much more rewarding experience than a greatest hits album, but I guess you can do what you want to your ears. Edit: wait, I think I misunderstood what you were saying. You were talking about getting it in Rock Band, right? Requesting stuff goes in a completely different thread, this is just general discussion.
timmay9;3036583 said:Second Coming in no way sucks. It's actually fantastic (doesn't touch the first album though).
a_bull_on_parade;3036602 said:I'm so inamored with Second Coming I don't want to go listen to the first though.
Coldplayer;3036715 said:Man.... you guys just ignored my last post. You're so mean.Ok, Massive Attack is Trip Hop not really Alternative/Indie, but come on, Angel and Teardrop would be amazing.
timmay9;3036668 said:Do it. Far superior, though the instrumentation isn't. Squire is fantastic on Second Coming. While a lot of "fans" hate on the album, I always thought that it was just a logical continuation of the sound they had on "I Am the Resurrection".
overcookedbacon;3037451 said:I've always been amused by those who think that to be a "true fan" of an artist you have to hate certain albums/songs by that artist. Because, you know, nothing says "true fan" quite like hatred. :rolleyes:I know I've heard all of the following:"You're not a Nirvana fan if you like 'Smells Like Teen Spirit.'""You're not a Stone Roses fan if you like Second Coming""You're not a Liz Phair fan if you like anything but Guyville""You're not a Radiohead fan if you like Pablo Honey""You're not a Trail Of Dead fan if you like anything after Source Tags & Codes"There's absolutely nothing wrong with Second Coming. It's a perfectly good album, and if it had come before their self-titled album it would have received plenty of praise. The problem with recording an album that's regarded so highly is that it becomes difficult to follow. Having a widely accepted magnum opus means that all your other work will receive less attention and less praise.

Alright_Computer;3036556 said:So, I'm listening to Merriweather Post Pavilion for the first time in a while now, and it's better than I remembered it. It's not my top album of 2009 or anything and I still prefer Feels, but it's definitely good.
a_bull_on_parade;3036565 said:They have a Greatest Hits and I'll take that.That said, I like Second Coming. Breaking Into Heaven and Love Spreads are my favorite Roses tracks
