Can't wait to hear what they record next. Agree? Disagree?

You done did some work.

I'd say give Bulls and Bees some more spins and count Pigs of the Roman Empire as essential. It's about as big a part of their discography to me as Egg Nog, which is saying a lot.

Also Colossus is much an album as Prick.

I'm finally getting some proper enjoyment from The Bulls And The Bees album. Giving it the attention it deserves.

This feels wrongish, but whatever, I guess. I trust they have more 9s and 10s yet to come. I penalize for redundancy and I care less for live albums and some of the less Melvinsy punk stuff.

That's interesting. I wonder how many other people here prefer the soundtrack to the regular album. Im willing to guess you may possibly be the only one!!

Yeah. I'll put on Death sometimes because I'm excited to hear a song in particular.

I'll put on Love as an end-to-end experience. I'm convinced that it's not random for randomness's sake. There are a lot of noise records and sound collages in the world, but very few that make a cohesive work. It's like an abstract expressionism thing but with a dream logic narrative. Or it's half way between The Crybaby and Colossus of Destiny.

Interesting. I'd say Love is much, much closer to COD than The Crybaby. Yet i think you have perfectly expressed something there that i have also felt with that half of the album that I never quite consciously considered. I agree with you that it does feel like a narrative but one that is not clear. Yet also in a weird manner DOES feel clear. I never considered the album to be random noise. With this and COD, i think there is intentional building going on. A purposeful flow and meter to what is happening. It's all woven together well to my ear. It's just something i don't reach for very much. Yet oddly now talking about it, i immediately want to go back and listen to it again!

The story of Colossus of Destiny in my mind will always be "we kept playing the noise intro to Eye Flys for longer and longer on tour. So we decided to take it to its absurd and extreme end. This involved keyboards and samples and our good friend Adam and a somewhat hostile audience." The Endless Residency tracklist generally confirmed this for me.
