I still listen to this song all the damn time. Such a great great great song... They have been closing their sets with this tune on the current tour (with Kelley Deal now being a part of the touring band, at least for this tour). Very jealous of all the smart people who are getting to see them. Hope they come to the west coast, or as least farther into the mid west.

They also have been playing a new song that I cant seem to find the audio of anywhere, but hoping it pops up soon. ... read more

This album dropped 4 days after Cobain was found dead, and while he may have pushed Love to reach these heights, this album is clearly grunge through the female perspective. Love's lyrics often covers difficult subject matter, and its all done with fury, melody, intelligence and wit. "asking for it" is the kind of song that is still as relevant today as it was nearly 30 years ago. The singles are great, the deep cuts are great. A classic album that only feels more powerful with time.

Early 20's Trent Reznor gives us the lyrical blueprint for all 90's HS goth and emo kids.

There are the obvious highlights (Head like a Hole, Terrible Lie, Sin), but we also get hints of the amazing soundscapes that would come on the next two albums. Back in 1989 I'm not sure that much else sounded like "Something I Can Never Have".

There isn't anyone out there who is exactly like NIN, and that is definitely part of the draw for me.

Obsidian Lizard kind of annoys me, but I like obsidian and lizards and I keep listening to the rest of this album so.

Mega bog is Erin Birgy who is a pacific NW rodeo kid (she practiced barrel racing, calf roping and mutton busting as per wiki), who is now partners with James Krivchenia of Big Thief who produced and played on this album.

I've been thinking about eating that hotdog for hours

I think if they replaced the closer Every Day Carry with Tony Speaks!, then I'd rate this even higher.

Just wanted to say thanks for the way you've pushed me to remain grounded as an individual. Without saying too much, I've slightly run into myself over the last week or so and your simple philosophy of positivity proves - in such situations - to be a guiding light. ヾ( ͝° ͜ʖ͡°)ノ

Oh, all Pacific standard time, by the way.

Aw, that's sweet of you to ask. There's an online streaming link here:

We feature a variety of DJs from the college and surrounding community. It's a very self-guided "do your own thing" ethos, so you might hear wildly different things at any given time! I've heard Scott Walker and Taylor Swift played in the same show.

Here are some shows I'd recommend:

Raspberry Jam: 8:00 - 9:00 pm on Tuesdays
Ike-Tunes: 12:00 - 1:00 pm on Mondays
Weekly Standards: 4:00 - 5:00 pm on Mondays
Gap Precedes the Rejoinder: 6 pm on Fridays (this is my show!)
Manic Pixie Dream Tunes: 4:00 - 5:00 pm on Tuesdays

The NR list. These are albums that I tried and either didn't like, or didn't catch my attention enough to feel justified in scoring.
