It’s obviously not on par with the peak era (IMO from Machine Gun Etiquette through Strawberries*), but I spun Grave Disorder last night and it holds up better than a lot of late career albums from punk bands. The Damned always work best for me when they let their psychedelic influences show.

*I love their entire output from the start through Phantasmagoria, but this was where I think they were the most consistently great.
I like all their albums. No bad ones for me not even Music For Pleasure. Looking forward to their new album being produced by Tony Visconti.
I like Music For Pleasure. I’m only so-so on Anything, but the better tracks are outstanding.

I like the Anything album but it was rushed and not really given enough time to grow. Still as you mention the good is very good.

Toots & the Maytals, 'The Best Of' (2001).
Kingston 11, JA's answer to Otis Redding. A quick, easy listen this comp is, but the remastering for this series was excellent (especially for 2001), and, really, these are some of the greatest songs ever created by anyone, ever.

I've listened to the new Weezer a few times and it hasn't really grabbed me, with the exception of "Weekend Woman."

It's been slated as a complete turning-of-the-back on rock and entering the pop sphere entirely. Are you getting that?

It's less obviously rock than previous Weezer, I guess, but I'd hesitate to call it pop. Or, rather, I don't know what the parameters for pop are in this case. But it's mostly whatever.

I read an article saying that they'd finally done away with power chords or something like that.

The Replacements, Aragon Ballroom, Chicago, Illinois, 1989. 'With Special Guest Mr. Liquor'.
Excellent audience tape; even better performance. No knock on Bob, but Slim helped made this band (when they were on) a perfect Stonesy pop-tastic band that should have made millions and had their songs in the canon of all the classics. All the best to you and Chrissy and the kids, Slim.
