Top five, leaving out Liams albums. Lightsleeper and the Nihilst rage really high 

  • the conversation
  • finn
  • pajama club
  • out of silence
  • Try whisteling this



Can I ask Why Pajama Club is 3rd? 

I'm not saying that you're wrong for having it, it's your opinion. I'm just curious to see what you see in it that others (including myself) don't.

I became a fan of Neil in 1997 just before all the solo releases. I was a big fan of the spirit of experimentation surrounding Try whisteling this and One Nil. But then Everone is here and the Crowded house reunion happened. As much as I like some of it, the experimental vibe was gone. No big left field stuff. The experiments that were there sounded dated to me, like on saturday sun. Your uncle trying a vocoder.
Then came Pajama club: an album with "elastic hearts". Great forward looking videos, weird songs. Noise, all the things I desperatly needed Neil to do. It ended a less interesting Neil phase, and started a new golden era. Which I hope will continue on his next stuff..
