    Phantogram.



    Came out hot with Eyelid Movies, then had a good album with Voices. But, their Three album in 2016 was hot garbage.

    I agree with this. I really liked them and had big hopes for them at the beginning of their career.

    I really liked them in this period:

    Bossanova and Trompe Le Monde are great albums in their own right.

    They are nowhere near the quality of Surfer Rosa or Doolittle.

    There is a dip in quality but they are still great albums. It's not as if they went to shit after Doolittle.

    For me its the Smashing Pumpkins. I didn't really get into anything after Siamese Dream. I was just listening to Gish last night. To me, that was their best.

    No way man The Green Album was good (and Maladroit was fine, but definitely a step down as an entire album), and after years of mediocrity they came back with a great and a very good album in Everything Will Be Alright in the End and the White Album. If you missed the sound of the first three albums it was a godsend (too bad the album after those two was a return to the sound from their mediocre years). Ric Ocasek came back to produce Everything Will be Alright in the End too, and the White album is heavily relationship focused like Pinkerton.
    Tell me these songs aren't a return to form.

    None of those songs are bad actually, but the stretch from Make Believe through Hurley was more or less an abomination.

    As for Green and Mal, Green was just good pop music. Nothing wrong with that, and Maladroit just had no soul, outside of maybe Slave or Slob. White Album could be called a return to form, but I'm just no longer into the band like I was back in high school.

    Thanks for those songs you linked though.

    Mudvayne after LD 50 and EOATTC

    They were unique but then really tried to be a singles band after World So Cold became a hit. They really went to shit after their second album.

    I would consider the beginning of all things to end, as the album before ld50. Or so I thought. The former was better than eoattc. IMO

    Mercury Rev, I love ''Yerself is Steam'' and ''Boces'', after that Baker left the band and I could never stand the high pitched voice of the new singer, their sound changed drasticly as well, it became less psychedelic and much more vanilla.

    Check this out, on wiki, The Beginning of all things to end isn't even mentioned. Where is it? I'm damn annoyed lol.

    Not on discography or history. You see this?

    It is, that’s just a re-release of their pre-LD 50 EP called Kill I Oughta. Its not classed as a studio album.

    Rage Against the Machine came to mind for me. First two were solid gold. Downhill for me from there
