    I think their songs sound better live than their recorded versions. Very jealous

    Saw them on the Disintegration tour. It's was a visual and aural assault. It was awesome.

    "Kiss Me..." is so full of the long intros that they had to make it a double LP...and I loved it. They definitely made that "their thing" but it really works for them. Disintegration loud on big speakers is just like heaven.

    I gained a new appreciation for Simon Gallup when I started learning to play the bass. Just listening to Disintegration again now, loud, knowing that my wife and daughter probably hate it. It never gets old. Remastered version available free on Amazon Prime. Kiss Me is, too. Those two albums are their peak IMO. Interesting to listen to Kiss Me and hear how their sound and writing were leading toward Disintegration.

    Haven't given them much thought for a while, but I will now. Glad to hear.
