Do you talk like that in real life? I don't think I've ever heard anyone say cloying or listless in general conversation before...

Haha, I do. And my friends think I read too many Victorian novels. But it's good to use descriptive words like that when you are trying to describe something. If you use more general words you don't convey particularities.

listless a big word is not.

I dunno, I think I'd get a stronger message from someone saying "this album is fucking shit" (or "the fucking shit" if positive).

(It's like the new NIN song.... the only way to describe it is LAME. Any other longer response feels futile. Cause that's what it is- LAME.)

I guess using old timey words like cloying is probably appropriate for an album like Hesei Fuzokuu, which Jihad has on many occasions said that he thinks it's for oldies :-p Just read it in an old persons voice in your head and it works better.

Those are both perfectly cromulent words. You should get more erudite and verbose friends, dg.

Picking Variety to be a contrary bastard. SG through Color Bars are too recent to be postmortem classics, and Heisei Fuuzoku is a essentially a self-cover album. Also, Tokyo Collection gave me a better appreciation for it.

Variety does have it's share of gems, like it or not haters. But you're better off listening to the Variety analog compilation than the actual album really. And picking it over the album that has Shun on it is kinda bizarre to me.

I picked Sports, since it's melodically strong and a actually pretty darn good album for what it's trying to do.

I can't really see a big shift of opinion happening on anything else. HF is still going to be a lot of covers of KZK stuff... SG is still wildly inconsistent. Variety is even more inconsistent and Dai Hakken is basically an inferior version of Sports. Color Bars is still an EP.

This made me snicker. Did you really just distinct between the Telecaster and any other guitar just because the album credits does? Or is the type of guitar something you actually listen for like I do? I'm not trying to be a dick or anything. I just almost never see anybody say Gunjou Biyori had a "cool fuzz/octave Telecaster" or that Kabukicho no Joou had "pretty Country Gentlemen cleans" here on the forum. *thumbs up*

Well, I only know because Uki has that signature guitar that he plays in everything (the one the rap in Himitsu is about). I read that it's a customized Telecaster, even though it doesn't really look like one.
But no, I don't have the ear to distinguish specific guitars, but I can tell when one guitar is different than the other, to a certain degree. Like "that one sound strummy" or "that one sounds fuzzy" or "that one sounds clean".

But I think with Shiina's music, the guitar is a little important. She makes (or made) near-constant references to the model she was using. She mentions her Duesenberg, her Rickenbacker, her Gibson, and her Gretsch in various lyrics or promotional material.
