The way the instrumental bridge from Marker races into that last verse is probably one of my favorite moments the band has had post-Riot Act.

Phenomenal song hindered by production.


I love it, but it could have been even better. Stip's sugggestion about what Marker could have been like with Josh Evans at the helm..... :bammer:

Is this album great, or do I just love the last big PJ tour? Some of those 2006 shows are absolute fire.


It's a really hard-to-appraise album, because in some ways it has the last vestiges of their earlier sound, while it also has some of the hallmarks of their newer (BS, LB) sound. It still speaks with the earlier language (I think of Severed Hand, Parachutes) and it has that all-important sense of urgency. I was surprised when I did my album score thing that it came out slightly ahead of Riot Act, which I regard as a much steadier album. I think my takeaway is that for me at least, Avocado's strengths are stronger but its weaknesses are weaker.


Really well said. It's hard for me to separate the album from the live shows, partly because S/T made up so much of the setlists and held their own with the rest of the catalogue. On the flip side I saw a few NAIS that brought shows to a halt and sucked the energy out of the room. I've said it other threads on this board, but 5/27/06 was NOT a great show, but when they pulled out Comeback in the first encore it might as well have been Black. The entire crowd felt zoned in and moved by it.

I like this show, and strongly agree with the new material hanging in there with the classics.

Reprise/Wasted
WWS
DtE
Animal
Severed Hand
Corduroy
Marker

Hell of an opening stretch with new and old blending seamlessly

Has anyone ever made a listenable re-tracking of S/T with those two on it? Seems the 06 spotify could serve as a starting place, but I imagine some kind of re-master would be required on whatever the best versions of Cold Confession and Let It Ride are. I wouldn't want to lose any songs from the album, even though I'm not a fan of Comatose and I really only like the last third of Big Wave. Hmmm... I could probably be convinced on Comatose.


Maybe this?

1. Life Wasted
2. WWS
3. Comatose
4. Severed Hand
5. Marker
6. Parachutes
7. Unemployable
8. Big Wave
9. Cold Confession
10. Let it Ride
11. Army Reserve
12. Come Back
13. Inside Job
14. Wasted Reprise

B-side: Gone

Much as I love Cold Confession, the one that I really can’t fathom being left off the album is “Let it Ride.” It’s just such a classic PJ song.

Anyone care to show Daddy some love by delivering the Spotify mix?
Has anyone found a way to rip it yet?

Can't be arsed to listen to three ads just to hear a lossy version of this thing.

Ah, well...I'll just wallow in the corner & await, then.
Likely going to have to fire this thing up & see what all the to do is about.
