There was nothing weak or “mailing it in” about the FLAG set, video of which is all over the net. I get that Black Flag was Ginn’s band, but there’s no reason to be slagging off the Morris/Dez Cadena group. Based on this single, and the FLAG video, I’m more excited to see FLAG live than Black Flag (current version).
I agree with most of the track-by-track breakdowns in the article, with two exceptions: Breath and Dyslesic Heart. These are two of my favorite songs on the soundtrack, and each is better than the other songs by the same artist (i.e. Breath is better than State of Love and Trust, and Dyslexic Heart is better than Waiting For Somebody). I’m surprised to see the article single those two songs out for negative comments.
Oh well…It’s a classic soundtrack, either way. As for the movie: it’s not my favorite or anything, but it’s a charming, enjoying little film anyway. It’s also is much, much better than pretty much any rom-com of the last decade or two. Look at, for example, the films of Katherine Heigel (sp?)….Compared to stuff like that, or movies like Valentine’s Day, New Year’s Eve, etc, Singles looks like a masterpiece.
I loved Angel Dust when I was a teen, and I still love it now. I always liked it better than The Real Thing, also…it’s just so amazing. Small Victory, Be Aggressive, Everything’s Ruined, and Kindergarten are the highlights, but it’s all terrific….
Angel Dust was an incredible album. It sounds exactly NOTHING like Red Hot Chili Peppers. Critics used terms like “funk rock” to describe both, but that doesn’t mean there’s any actual similiarity.
Why do you assume he’s intelligent? From what I’ve observed, he could either be a smart guy pretending to be an idiot, or an idiot. I’m leaning toward the latter. Occam’s razor, and all that…
I tried downloading all of the tracks, but some downloaded as “flv” files, not mp3s….what gives?
(Otherwise, great article. Many of those bands art awesome)
