I like those lyrics, and the energy the song brings is fantastic.

Yep, and then I'm Open happens.

Let the Records Play is one of the best things on the last two albums. Anything wrong with that song (or Supersonic for that matter) is down to Ed.

Stone probably thought Ed would let him sing on Supersonic again. He did the first time.

Other than the opening riff, its so dumb. Its something i would come home and play wasted after a bar run. No way. And i actually enjoy the song! but as a musical piece.....weak.....WEAK SPENNO WEAK.

that riff was stumbled upon by accident too, per stone in that documentary thing. jeff wrote some different song and stone played the riff wrong but that became the riff for LTRP

so credit stone with the good part of that song

no surprise

boo ed

yay stone

bring back Dave A.
