Subject: songwriter output, albums, and the JBC

Let me revise what I said about differences in album quality - I myself
think that Fish and BPSP are great albums[1]. BPSP *does* I think have an
overproduction problem, and in fact just off the top of my head, I think
that this is more of a problem with the angry songs of BPSP than it is
with the more laid back WftlB. That's my reason for assuming that BPSP
might be considered not as good. (I think in Pat's comments about the
albums, he says something about it not being one he reaches for.)


[1]: I think all of Pat's stuff is great, including the early stuff because
(to quote Alexei Sayle) "I like a laugh!" What I put on the stereo to
listen to is another question. For me, Condition Blue is probably the one
that gets the least playing time, actually...
