Did anybody initially listen to it when it first came out? It’s grown on me the last few years and it seems it got quite an audience of regular listeners on Spotify & YouTube. It’s different than a lot of their previous material and although it’s overproduced in places it seems to hold up.
I remember getting into a taxi home from a night shift the day it came out and the driving thrusting at me exclaiming “take this shit out my taxi when you leave!”. Covered in GNR and other assorted 80s metal tattoos this fella, spent the entire way home talking about how bad the album was. Can’t remember what I did with it after getting out but I never heard it.
I was just telling this story to Her Indoors and remembered he told me during that journey that a tornado hit his house that month, he lived in the province of Eccles, Salford.
