Always categorized Husker Du as just hardcore, although they were definitely on the forward curve of the genre.

Stone-cold classic.

Regarding the earlier "big 3" conversation, I always felt Bear vs. Shark deserved more love. Right Now... and Terrorhawk are as good as anything in the genre.

First impression: starts off really strong, but loses steam in the middle.

But overall, probably better than it has any right to be. I could see it being a grower.

Did the music in Grief remind anyone else of Basinski's Disintegration Loops a little bit?

If you're not watching The Americans, you're missing out on one of the best shows on tv.

Three more listens, and I like it more every time. Y'all are crazy.

It gets great around 1:15, when that ominous two-note guitar line comes in.

Just listened, and was expecting something much worse based on the reactions in here. I like it.

I was not a fan of Codes & Keys, but I'm enjoying these singles more than I anticipated.

Very solid. I'd put it on the same level as Good News and We Were Dead (which is a good thing in my book.)

Yeah, I haven't listened either. Only heard Lampshades and Coyotes and stopped after that. Want to go in as fresh as possible.

Does anyone else feel weird when a band releases the album closer as a single? It's always felt weird to me.

Been watching since season 1. Can't believe it's over.
