Bee Thousand is easily within my top 10 when it comes to Indie albums. I must've listened to this about 30, maybe almost 40 times, it's helped me get through my job and continues to inspire me to make music the way I want to make it.
Man is this album incredible or what? One of the best albums ever. It amazes me how the guitars and bass on this record sound better than the guitars on super produced albums...they sound better to me at least.
Greatest album ever. While the songs on Alien Lanes are as good and consistent, Bee Thousand just has a kind of magic which album, and most others (besides maybe young Marble Giants' Colossal Youth) lack. As far as most lo-fi, though, not really, I'd probably give that to Beat Happening's self-titled.
One of the greatest alternative albums of the 90's and of all time. The way the pace and style of the songs constantly changes throughout but the flow of the album feels continuous. This should be in a lot more top 100 album lists!
Chaotically beautiful, genius is an overused term but this record may be worthy of such a moniker. It's probably just my current chemically altered perspective inducing such hyperbole, but this album seems devoid of flaws. Post-modern perfection.
