Division Bell, for all its calculations and games, was not a terrible record. I liked a number of tracks on there. The problem was that they just felt sterile, at times, and missed the uncomfortable...

Almost every single music forum I've found that covers stuff I actually like has a distressingly low traffic level. So there's that.

I second this rec. Willy Vlautin is an amazing, disturbingly overlooked songwriter.

I'm not huge on the pre-Phrenology records, personally. But a lot of fans swear by Things Fall Apart, so that might be one worth checking out to see if you feel differently. Game Theory is also held...

Looks like it's been taken down. But I found it here (https://www.hmvdigital.ca/releases/3561923).

It's not amazing, but it's nice to hear him with some punch again.

He's in good shape now, I think. For a while there he was definitely following in his dad's footsteps, though--which he addresses beautifully in "Mama's Eyes."

Need this. Hopefully I end up liking it more than Ashes and Fire, which still feels like an outlier in his catalog to me, much as I've tried to love it.

I like that line in the opener about if pain creates gain then he must be gaining a lot. Spoken like someone who's lived some life in his 81 years.

One of my favorite producers is Teo Macero. A lot of the work he did on Miles Davis's electric albums--tape-splices and such--was pretty groundbreaking, a kind of forefather to sampling in many ways....

What's your definition of "genuine"?

The thing is, those identity markers you mention have always been a part of the genre's makeup. When you're part of a minority/lower class that elites look down...
