All better than anything on the SST records.


I'd have to disagree....

I count a bakers dozen kickass songs just on Zen Arcade...and to my ears
Warehouse has about 10.


Zen Arcade might be my least favorite HD. Different strokes...

Warehouse was the first album I heard by them. And it remains my favorite HD album. I think's it's extremely consistant with only one glaring clunker for me. And it did away with the thrash side of the band. I didn't mind that balance on some of the older records. But given the choice, I'd rather hear their pop tunes. The production is strange. But at least it doesn't almost make the album unlistenable, ala New Day Rising. I actually like the cover a lot, too. I don't know why.

Their most underrated record. #2 or 3 for me.

I read that too. I'd like to think Bob is just trying to hedge his bets, or not let anything out prematurely. But there is no way the Numero 'project' is gonna consist exclusively of a couple old demos.
Henry Owings (Chunklet) is doing the artwork and he has said this has been something like 7 years in the making and will be another year or two before it is complete. Again, that sounds like a hell of a lot more than some demos.

I love Warehouse, but I'd argue that the thrash side of the band was done by Flip Your Wig. That's the demaraction line. It was supposed to be their first record for Warners.

Bump.

This is exciting, but I do wish they'd just announce it already.

I am only listening to
Landspeed Record
In a free Land EP
Zen Arcade
Metal Circus

The production of later records is too slick for my taste.
