Re: Your thoughts on #35...

I cannot believe the spoiled brats in this thread. You should thank your damn stars there's ANYTHING at the end of the album. Roi is dead. He's not coming back. I don't care if it's a recording of him cleaning out his ******** SPIT VALVE. You all need to put a sock in it and appreciate what you've got.

    Re: Your thoughts on #35...

    This thread equals the pure negativity that is the online fan base. It's a 45 second cut of a 5 second loop, which is apparently the last thing Roi recorded. Who cares? It's on the damn album and nothing's going to change that. This is stupid banter.

    I don't hear people complaining about the dog whistle at the end of Sgt. Peppers.

    Re: Your thoughts on #35...

    it's a good end. not a song unto itself, just a little "jamlet." It's exactly what it should be. I know there are those of you that want full-fledged jams, but save it for the inevitable box set that's sure to come in the next 5-10 years. You just got a new album that is miles better than anything else the whole band has put out this decade [with the exception of "You Never Know"]. While I think Whiskey could use a few tweaks here and there, as a stated in a previous thread about doing the album differently, #35 is a good and appropriate end. I would have loved a full blown jam with LeRoi as the centerpiece, but that wouldn't have endcapped the record as nicely.

    I think if the sentiment was to simply end with some more Roi, it could have been better, but that's alright. We don't have to listen to it.

    It's not anything spectacular, but I still like it.

    I don't care too much for #35. If anything, make a medley of LeRoi noodles and tack it on at the end.

    I have a feeling it might have been the last thing LeRoi recorded in the studio.

    I listened to it once. Not really anything special.

    Re: Your thoughts on #35...

    i will admit that the first time i heard it i felt...shortchanged? but given the fact that it clearly has some sentimental meaning to the band i will say that i like it. its not bad, just kind of boring.
