Re: Where are the US reviewers of ROTD?


Cleveland Ohio

Personally I think Rapture is more consistently good from start to finish than any other Morse era release. However, I also think that while the tracks are all pretty good, there is no true stand out Classic among them. In this regard I would rate purpendicular and Abandon as better albums but Bananas is still a million miles behind as most of its tracks were rubbish and there were only two above average tracks on it.

I think Rature hits its stride through the middle of the disc ( starting with Rapture and going through Kiss Tommorrow Goodbye. The tracks on either end of those are still pretty good but not on the same level as the mid section of the disc. MTV has some interesting Lyrics but they are just not condusive to being sung and that is a big downside to that song, Otherwise I would have included it. Junkyard Blues is probably the best of the outer edge material even though I still rank it a little lower than the middle of the disc. Probably the highlight of the whole disc for me is Don's piano solo.

Long time no see you Bob, very well explained view of it... I would not have expected this from you, I take it you've given it quite a thought... considering the line up and all.emoticon

Some of the best I've read around here.emoticon
