    One of my favorite albums, definitely wore out the CD on this one. The beginning is so good, the very clean guitar track that gets taken over by distortion

    The intensity level changes on this one, No One Else. It doesn't totally drop you off but it kind of levels you off. Good though because they can't all be in your face

    My pleasure. I'm happy to present an environment for people to get together and listen to full albums. I love the album concept and think the great ones need to be listened to in their full context for full appreciation. Anyone else out there tonight?

    I love that track! Any song that can hold my interest for 8 min has to be great. By the way, just started In the Garage

    I know exactly which part you're talking about. It's cool. Supposedly they practiced barbershop quartet stuff when rehearsing for this album. http://www.weezerpedia.com/wiki/index.php?title=Weezer_(The_Blue_Album)

    Absolutely! What a perfect song to close such a great album. I think track order is an extremely important part of any album. They did a fantastic job on this one.

    Don't worry, I don't think it was on your end. I'm sure it was the site. I'll look into and make sure everything is working properly for next time. Thanks again for stopping in. I look forward to listening to Appetite and hearing your thoughts.
