But seriously... I remember this post:

Finally listened to the whole album. The first two songs are a bit shaky, but overall I like it a lot. Often it reminds me of what a non-shoegaze Curve would be (similar sense of precision without the overdriven scuzz). And I like that for this record, the guitar is simply an element, deployed. Not the center of it. Similar to Prince's pop singles. "Los Ageless" is still my favorite song here


And that's not the same thing.

I listened to this album yesterday and mid 80s Prince is all over it.

I'm not overly familiar with Prince. But I'm talking about Sugarboy specifically, no the entire album.

As some one who has heard the album once, I'm walking away from this conversation.

:lol:

You don't have to do that. I think you're probably absolutely right. My ignorance here is on full display. I believe you. I just meant that Sugarboy sounded... familiar to me each time I listened and I couldn't quite figure out which artist it reminded me of. And it's Prince. I probably would have gotten to that conclusion quicker if I knew more of Prince's work. I'm sure it's all over the album, too. She's mentioned him quite a bit in interviews leading up to the release.

The title track is probably my favorite song on this album.

I love everything she's ever done, and I think this as just as good or better than any of the other records. Hang on Me, Masseduction, Los Ageless, HB Johnny, Savior, Slow Disco, Smoking Section are going to stay in my ear for years to come, I'm sure. Lyrics are really strong on this album.

Which Tortoise album, Joe? I'd be interested to hear your thoughts if you ever do get to revisit it.

Oh shoot... I forgot to look at home. I'll Google their album covers and see if I can remember which one. Gimme a sec.

It's Millions Now Living Will Never Die.

That's a pretty good entry point for them. It's more concise than TNT, which is my favorite and was my own introduction, and more accessible and fully constructed than their self-titled.

Good to know. I guess I've got a really old album to revisit. That's fun.

I LOVE this album.

I really like the transition from Sugarboy to Los Angeles (which sounds an awful lot like NIN).
