Alternative Vs Please

#1 Post by York Minster » Fri 05 Apr 2019, 8:53 am

Alternative is coming out way ahead in geowayne's poll. Pushing aside such mainstays as Disco and Discography, and even fan favorite Relentless.

Alternative has always been a favorite of mine, especially Disc 1 which is nearly unimpeachable from start to finish.

How does Alternative stack up against the classic albums? Let's try it versus Please, and if it can somehow pull out a win, we will move on to others.
And tryin' to figure out what happened to 'Germaine Propaine'
"He couldn't have fell off that hard" Ain't no way
"What happened to the way you was rappin' when you was scandalous
That Canibus turned into a television evangelist"
Plus he raps with his regular voice [BOOSH! BOOSH!]
[BOOSH! BOOSH!] (What was that?) Pet Shop Boys

I would argue that Alternative is simply a playlist... and as such it cannot match the brilliance and the over-arching narrative of Please, or, indeed, of most of their Studio albums.

An old-fashioned view in the Spotify era, perhaps....
