I’m a little surprised by these results. It seems like any time the subject of this album comes up the tone ranges from neutral to vicious. But that’s definitely not what these numbers reflect. Apparently there’s a big silent majority on Busted Stuff.

I've always thought the consensus was "Meh. It's pretty good, but it could've been epic."

Looks like its tracking at around 70% which is marginally higher than Come Tomorrow. Sounds mostly right.

Yeah. The quality of the collection of tunes even trumps the production. Easily.

the backing vocals are like that all through the album but I don't recall SD vocals standing out as much. made me appreciate the way lillywhite handled the harmonies.

If not for the LWS, Busted Stuff would have an 80% or higher here.

I know for a fact that my rating would be higher. I'm usually pretty good at being able to think about things in a vacuum, but for some reason I just can't separate BS from the LWS. No matter how I try, I can't remove these recordings from my feelings about the originals.

It's tough. BS is literally the same album without JTR and SUAD (which sucks) and worse production. Though YNK is probably better than anything on LWS hands down (might even be a top 10 All-time DMB song), but even still, it's impossible not to compare the two.

SUAD does not suck and YNK is not better than everything on the LWS hands down.

Oh I meant that it sucks that SUAD and JTR weren’t on BS. That being said, YNK Kind Of made up for that. To me YNK is one of their best songs of all time, so yeah I do think as a song it’s better than a lot of LWS, even if it wasn’t produced the best it could have been.
