There's some truth to this. Rated R and Songs for the Deaf I loved right away. Both were fantastic and got even better the more I listened. Everything after I pretty much disliked from the get go. After revisiting much later I tend to find about two or three songs I really like, but for some reason the rest doesn't connect.
Also not a huge fan of their lives show. Seen them twice and both times it was just....it was alright, I guess. I probably won't try again.
But I'll give this new one a shot. I always do (that's how much goodwill Rated R and SFTD has earned). I probably should just make a playlist for myself of all the post-SFTD songs I really like. More Little Sister and 3's and 7's and less I'm Designer, Smooth Sailing, and Sick,Sick,Sick.
Oddly enough, weren't Little Sister and 3's and 7's singles from their albums? I'm usually the guy who hates the singles and loves the B-sides. I don't think I realized that I love the QotSA singles more than the B-sides before (Go With the Flow is one of my favorite songs ever).
