Root Down

Get well soon MCA. Also, Paul’s Boutique / Check Your Head / Ill Communication: maybe the best 3 album run of any band ever?

License To Ill was their best album–CLASSIC!!! I love the beasties. They’re SO very hip hop, in that purist kind of way.

Aw man, I had no idea he was *ill*. Sounds hopeful though…I’ll miss them at Outside Lands…speaking of, are you going Scott?

The best three album run could be of super-debate magnitude…like what about OK Computer/Kid A/Amnesiac? Or some of the Zeppelin albums or The Bealtes…I will say though, maybe for their genre of music it could be the best ever, definitely tops.

best three album run ever. radiohead was solid, and zep was amazing but I think the beatles are totally freaking overrated. my vote goes to the b-boys… because it does go well with the chicken.

good call, maybe it should be narrowed down to hip hop. or just changed to “wow, what a great 3 album run”…

beatles, overrated? man, go get sgt. pepper’s, Magical Mystery Tour, and The White Album…amazing run right there. as for zeppelin: III, IV, and Houses of the Holy is huge.

belle & sebastian and The Shins are a couple more recent bands I feel like have been super consistent.

What’s important about the Beatles is that their music beats out all the over-hyping that tends to get attached to them. The test if time has told us that; it’s still relevant music. And they probably have more than 3; Abbey Road, Revolver, Rubber Soul…the list goes on.

And, wow, what a great 3 album run… :)
