When Amp came out, somehow I didn't even know it had been released.
I got into O & C when Relationship of Command came out. I got DITC and loved it.
Francis came out, and I thought it was not quite as good the first one.
Then my hours got cut at work to part time. I was trying to keep up with my mortgage payments, and didn't have money to buy records.
I stopped paying attention to new releases by any band for a few years.
I saw The Volta won a Grammy for TBIG and picked it up. It's still my favorite album by them. I just love how hard hitting and relentless it is.
Then I was listening to the local college radio station, and the DJ played Meccamputechture.
WTF is this? A couple years late to the party. LOL
This album is as good as any of the first four.
The last part of Tetragrammaton still rubs me the wrong way though. I get what snkzato is saying about the humor/joke aspect of it, but It just bothers me every time I hear it.
