The Raincoats-Odyshape

All the record goons I know seem to get hard when you mention the Raincoats first album. But why is it that the conversation end with just their debut? Is it because Kurt Cobain didn't put this one on his top 100 albums list? Obviously people aren't really listening because, while I love the first album, this is so much better. They dropped any punk tendencies, got better at their instruments, brought along Robert Wyatt (always a wise decision) and Charles Hayward (now you're super smart) and made a really brilliant album that seems appropriate for whatever the weather might be. If you're still sore about the fact that their won't be any more This Heat records and you don't have this one yet then the joke's on you pal.
