Once again, I must apologize for the lack of posts lately. It has slowed down to about one per month, which is definately not what am aiming for. This is mainly due to me spending a few weeks job hunting/interviewing, and that taking the majority of my attention. The good news is that I now have a new job, and perhaps can post a bit more often (no guarantees though). Now that that's out of the way, let's get to business. Stifled Man Casino rocks. It is such a great song, and has a chorus that is just begging for radio-play. It contains one of my favorite GBV-related lines with "Up go the stakes in Stifled Man Casino/No one gets the brakes/That's the breaks, baby". But how are the b-sides?...
Peroxide is a great idea killed by an incredibly slow fade-out, and is over far to soon. It is actually one of the most rocking Airport 5 tracks, until it begins fading out forty seconds in, and continues to fade out for the next forty seconds. Eskimo Clockwork is a keyboard-driven instrumental which does not really go anywhere.
Oh well, they can't all be winners. However, Stifled Man Casino is so good, that you must have this song. Luckily, it is also available on Tower in the Fountain of Sparks.
Tracklisting (Songs in bold make my ultimate Pollard/GBV box set/playlist):
