Well I'm not perfect. As a rule I hate jam bands - or any band that is even guilty by association... but I do try to keep an open mind. So, I got this for the song 'Brian Wilson' which is in its own right a solid little song, especially the live version found here. Unfortunately the rest of the disc drums up all the bad imagery one thinks of when listening to a jam band: frat bars, teva's, keychains that have long canvass straps... anyway - the cd is what it is.

4.5 out of 10

you know jason, normally I do not ridicule you for your additonal ASS PONIES however after the horrific review of SUBLIME second hand smoke I have to retaliate. I will say nothing more than this. You have a barenaked ladies record in your collection? That record is old nad you still have it? I got rid of my SPACEHOG years ago. OFr shame.

To all my readers: "Ass Pony's" is in reference to a cd that chad recommended I buy ages ago and it sucked, whenever he'd see it on my shelf he'd chuckle... now any questionable cd I have in my collection is referred to as an 'Ass Pony', and any in his as a 'Space Hog' in reference to that cd that he owned.

Now Meadows, next time you are over I will make sit down and listen to the Sublime disc without the aid of acid. If you were tripping I could burp in your ear and you'd think it sounded good, and probably 'bones fall out of your body and explode' blah, blah, blah. The disc sucks.

Now, this cd is bad but it does have a decent song in 'Brian Wilson'.

You can check it for yourself on your dial up:

Plus you listen to that Polyphonic Spree shit, aren't you into hippie music?

I am a dirtie hippie you know. You saw my pits. It's like you told me with AIR, sometimes you just aren't ready for it. One day the spree will hit you. Until then you and i will agree to disagree on the spree. I will say that my excitement over the 359 member band is waining (no thanks to you)
