I prefer their songs with most/all the sludge removed...their acoustic EPs and the poppier songs on Dirt are by far their favorite works of mine. I would have much rather seen them go in that direction had Layne lived instead of Tripod (minus Over Now amongst some others). And I loved their whole Unplugged, that album was aces.

I prefer the studio version, its spookier sounding but both love both unplugged and studio. Its rare a song as long as Frogs can hold my interest.

No, you are right the studio version is way better. I just love jerry on that song.

The actual frogs that sound in the studio version are incredible.

I missed those things in BGWTB.

I get what you're saying Them Bones is pretty poppy too. Compare a single like Them Bones to a dirge like Grind, which I think was the lead single off of the Tripod album....

Poppy vs poppier...the "ier" makes it relative.

Been listening to some of their music including their last record and im getting exited about the new album.

Even if its generic rock, its really nice we are getting a new album from these guys.

Listening to SAP right now.

Brother is a beautiful song.

I love Got me Wrong...I especially love the version from their Unplugged.


I wish I could like it more, but the screw up in the final chorus annoys me every time where Jerry and Layne sing a different word - somebody messes up.

Going to see them this month. Not expecting too much. Should be like a Jerry solo show.

I love the separation of their voices in Uplugged's Got Me Wrong...I make that same mistake all the time that they made, so I let it slide. He without sin...and all that stuff.
