I preferred it to their first album. I know it doesn't have as many hits, but just feel like the whole albums got a groove to it and all the songs work together. I like listening to it from start to finish, with the exception of the hidden track with the out of tune piano which hurts my ears. 

Feel the same about Sticky Fingers by Rolling Stones. It's not necessarily their album that has the most good songs, but the whole thing just works together really well as a package making it my favourite Stones album to listen to from start to finish.

Although I agree with Calgol that it drags a bit.

Still an anthem for our times compared with Ian Brown and Van Morrison's output

Van’s new album is party central. Tracks include The Long Con, Big Lie, Diabolic Pressure, Stop Bitching Do Something, They Own The Media, and Why Are You On Facebook?

I honestly thought this was a joke.

A controversial opinion...

Continually going back to roasting Keidis is lazy and pointless given that everyone knows and accepts that RHCP are shite.

While this does feel a little personal, arguably this hasn't been roasted anywhere near enough:

More to the point, why do people try to mock them for ludicrously ridiculous lyrics and acting bonkers when their entire act is based on....well... ludicrously ridiculous lyrics and acting bonkers?

Its not as if them performing naked with socks on their cocks, singing nonsense and dancing like idiots was them attempting to be taken seriously.

Fair.  Grand Prix knocks most other albums of its era into a cocked hat.

Since we’re in the controversial opinions thread...Saw Teenage Fanclub along with The Breeders supporting Nirvana back in ‘92...Blew both of them away (quite easily in fact)...and that was before Grand Prix put them on another level altogether! I think what I’m saying here is that I prefer the fannies to Nirvana (is that controversial?)...

You clearly don’t grasp how stupid Anthony Kiedis is.

I remember reading years ago about the Fanclub being in the studio when Cobain came in and started gushing about how much he loved them. SO he would probably agree with you.

I absolutely fucking despise Hacienda Classical and all that shit.The idea that using 'proper' musicians gives the music a kind of legitimacy and higher status is a proper c**ts trick. Voodoo Ray is a work of genius and major cultural importance. It absolutely does not need some chinless fucking prick sawing away on the violin to  make it 'proper' music. Just play the fucking record and banish these establishment c**ts.

Opening up the Pyramid Stage on a gorgeous sunny Glastonbury, Rowetta dressed as a bee, Hooky on bass, Bez shaking his maracas as they do You Got The Love.

It would take a heart of stone....

Hey, the execution is good, and I'd never begrudge Rowetta and Bez a living (Hooky can do one mind), but the concept absolutely reeks of elitism, gatekeeping and a totally unnecessary quest for authenticity, it's the antithesis of everything that makes that music so important.

I'm a big fan of Jeremy Dellar's Acid Brass project, that was a fascinating look at music and community and the connection between Britain's industrial heritage and leisure time. That's howe to do this kind of thing. With heart and integrity.
