Loving the anger and the guitar riff of No Flag, the hypnotic vibes of Newspaper Pane, and the sad tenderness of the beautiful closer, Byline. These are my three favourite songs at the moment.

Re: which of these two long players is MORE of a clunker?

It reminds me how I re-discovered and grew to love WIWC three years after its release. It even made me create a thread about it. You can find it here:

That was fun. Many thanks to kosi. The reactions to the poll have proved that as much as we all love Get Happy!!, we quite often differ considerably with regards to our favourite tracks. Quite frankly, I would never expect some of the songs (no titles, not to stir more controversy) to bo so dear to ...

Re: Get Happy!! Survivor - Round 2

I understand what you say, guys, but 90% of Get Happy!! songs are insanely good (the other 10% being just VERY good). For me it was a choice between B&W World, Beaten to The Punch, Human Touch, and Love For Tender. Black & White World is a very good song, but I'm pretty sure it will go out i...

Enjoying a new album from the Chills, their first in almost 20 years.
Bouncing melodies, fine arrangements, engaged lyrics - all in all, a great return.

On top of it, my wife is a huge James' fan and she plays La Petite Mort at least a few times a week, so I've grown to love it. :-) Jack, eagerly looking forw...
