I mean the Chems comment was just plain wrong if it makes you feel better?

They have always been exceptional!

Except Salmon Dance. 

Salmon Dance can fuck off. 

 

Feel much better now, thank you

however:

No Geography > Hey Boy, Hey Girl

Got To Keep on > Galvanize 

MAH > Believe 

And that's without even mentioning Free Yourself or Eve Of Destruction 

Therefore, as stated Chems new stuff is better than their old stuff😁

That's not in anyway saying that Chems old stuff is shit just the new stuff IS better 😉

that was a trick I concocted to out the real Nickelback fans of the forum.

Real real ones know that they were never that good to begin with.

It takes a lot of people a few posts to let go and find their controversy

Tbh I thought it would be my Radiohead, The National & Nick Cave comment that would've done it😆🤣

It's finding that middle ground between the non-controversy of "Radiohead are miserable" and the step too far of "Gary Glitter's musical output balances out his behaviour"

I saw The Electric Swing Circus headline Avalon a few years back and they were brilliant live. 

No idea where I saw them (wasn't Glastonbury) but agree great fun

The only reason I didn't is cause I actually agree about Nick Cave.

I love No Geography. 

When it came out I actually thought it was their best record. 

I then went and listened to the back catalogue and came to the conclusion I can’t rank their albums, it’s just too hard.

My fave songs change based on mood and which era Chems I want at that moment. 

I love the new single and the continuation of the No Geography floaty electro vibe.

But sometimes I need the filth of Elektrobank, It Began In Afrika or Under The Influence. 

In short, I love The Chemical Brothers.

See, now you're getting the hang of being controversial.

GTKO is great, but Galvanize is.....well it's Galvanize.

The Private Psychedelic Reel is the best Chemical Brothers song. Everything they have done since is just....... not as good!

Imo:

We’ve Got To Try > Block Rocking Beats

Elektrobank > No Geography

Where Do I Begin > Galvanize 

Eve of Destruction > Hey Boy Hey Girl 

Not sure where that leaves me.

On the other side of the world, where you belong with some of these opinions! 😄

That’s not to say I think the lesser tracks are poor. Like others, I think I’m just a fan (although surely we can all agree that Further was a low point).

Hard agree - it's to the Chems as Charly is to The Prodigy

I've gone 360 on Hey Boy, Hey Girl over the years. Loved it when it first came out, tired of it (as most have done) given how much is was overplayed, but have re-discovered a love of it, mostly based on how much it goes off live even after all these years. It's amazing.

What??? Further is the best album, you lunatic!

Escape Velocity, Swoon, Another World, Horse Power, K+D+B - all classics. I'm particularly fond of this remix:

(Sorry, struggling to get it to embed)

Apart from the first track, obvs, I always skip that before my tinnitus gets too bad!

Slight change of subject, that's my relationship with Dancing Queen, originally one of my favourite ABBA songs because of how accessible it was, then went off it in favour of deeper cuts, because obviously something so poppy, must be lightweight. Then eventually listened to it closely and realised that it's actually a masterpiece, a Swiss watch of arrangement and composition, beautifully complex, yet ticks along in a way everyone gets immediately.

Dancing Queen is jaw-dropping.  You could make arguments for things like The Winner Takes It All or Mama Mia being ABBA's best song (or Angel Eyes which I'm extraordinarily fond of) - but when it comes down to it it's the most popular for a reason.

Probably not controversial, but there's not a single Beach Boys cover that comes close to the original.  You can normally find a cover or two for great bands that are roughly equal or better than a song or two, but I can't think of anything for The Beach Boys.
