Pushin' th' little daisies
I'm way late on all of these, but will catch up! I still prefer Let It Be, but Tim is great. At first I liked it better, because Let It Be has a couple of joke songs like Gary's Got A Boner and Tommy Has His Tonsils Out or whatever they're called. But then I realised two things: 1, those joke songs helped lay the blueprint for so many pop punk albums, if there has to be filler, make it funny, or at least an in-joke. 2, the joke songs are representative of the personality that made the Mats so loved. Aside from that, Let It Be also has one of the greatest indie songs of all time. Which of course means one of the greatest songs of all time. Unsatisfied. Nothing on Tim hits those heights but it's a great album.
Still have to hear Pleased to Meet Me. Will be there soon, as I'm reading through Our Band Could Be Your Life again and buying the records I overlooked. Just on Warehouse: Songs and Stories now which means the Mats are next.
