I still don't get the whole "it sounds like a fashion commercial" thing. I love it, and think it fits the song perfectly.

I guess I just interpreted your explanation as condescending. My apologies.

I almost completely agree with this, but I still went with Blue. I am one of those people that prefer a whole album experience, as opposed to specific songs. Whenever I listen to Blue, it just seems more right than listening to Red. I can't really explain it.

Horse Called Golgatha is my fave track off of Blue, and that riff always peps me up.

For me the difference came with several listens. I loved Blue Record the 1st time I heard it but after several listens it kinda bored me towards the end. It has it's moments and Jake Leg actually grew on me a little but I'm all about great songs and I think there are more great songs on Red Album.

Can't wait to finally see them live and hope they play some older shit too
