 Nice to know that at least one other person thinks "Some Girls" and "Emotional Rescue" are great albums. I'd only apply the "meaningless" label to "Rescue" though.

 tired of the little dialetic shout-outs, get a new schtick, stylus. also 98% of the records you guys and perhaps girls write about are ridigly formalistic, we're talking pop and rock, get realistic. "sweet new-con" is laughable. "It's getting very scary/Yes, I'm frightened out of my wits/There's bombers in my bedroom/Yeah and it's giving me the shits/We must have lots more bases/To protect us from our foes/Who needs these foolish friendships/We're going it alone". 2nd grader bullshit. those freepers are probably in hysterics.

 Oh, god, how boring! Andrew, you are so right: awful lyrics - music far away from any sense of adventure. This kind of mainstream is one big dead end street - they did some great albums 100 years ago. Please guys, prepare for your exile on Main St!
