Yeah, all the stuff I remember hearing about Anarchy, My Dear really turned me off of that album, as it just didn't match any of my expectations at all. Maybe that was my fault, but I'm a bit more wary of heeding what Max says about this kind of thing. Anarchy feels so far away, I guess, just because I wasn't into that album at all.
anarchy actually has some staying power after a while. might not be a great "whole" album but has some pretty good say anything songs to add to a playlist
