"What Comes Around" KNOCKS. It is so much fun, and the beat is really weird and different. But to each their own.

the Alice Cooper guitar/drum-fill snippet is such a delightfully alienating interjection to the main Gene Harris treatment. it illustrates my favorite quality in sampling perfectly; the juxtaposition of random genres, eras, temperaments, etc. to create this harmonious kaleidoscope of non-sequitirs, to highly psychedelic effect.

Yeah, I've heard them say this before - the PB commentary maybe? The song is solid. I could probably do without the Pamstylin' at the end (funny at the time I'm sure), otherwise it's a neat little jam. Love the piano lines, and as mentioned the Cooper sample.

What?!?!?!? How is this song a "dud"???!?!? Always loved it as equally as everything else on that masterpiece. Album is flawless.

I remember playing this song for an ex-girlfriend, 15ish years ago, specifically because of those honky tonk player piano lines. Like I mimed them out when the song got to that point. And she was just like "so what? Practice long enough and you could play that too."

I said, "no, they SAMPLED that from some other record and made it fit in w/ everything else. It's ALL samples."

and she was just like"... Oh... that's actually pretty amazing. Yeah, this song is pretty great."

Also, yeah the funky Pam thing is silly. (and they've def shit on this song before. I am flabbergasted every time. That pasta primavera/Geraldo Rivera line makes me laugh every time I hear the song.

The first time I heard Paul's Boutique, and for like a year or two afterwards it was my least favorite song. But now I think it may be my favorite (prob not my actual fave, but way up there) off that album.. For no reason

Amen. To be fair, I was so young / naive when I first heard Paulís that, even though I liked it, I failed to grasp the genius in creating such a coherent collage of samples. It was probably a good year or two later that the penny really dropped. I understood stuff like Sure Shot and Root Down were built around particular samples, but the idea that like 95% of the music you were hearing on Paulís is sampled seemed ridiculous.

but seriously... the production on Paul's is top notch, but I always felt Shake your Rump followed by Eggman would have flowed better.

The transition into Ryall sounds so perfect though!

I can't be knocking it, thumping beat and samples, and perhaps the only sustained character piece in their back catalogue. Each to their own though!

Difficult to change anything on the record. If forced I'd maybe make a push for a full length Stop That Train in place of Chicken Dinner but maybe that's too much of a good thing. And Chicken Dinner is a wonderful early inclination of what fed Country Mike!

5-piece into lookin down the barrel is epic. pure chaos spliced directly into that heavy gothic break. mm, so so def

lookin down the barrel has really proven to be quite the foreshadowing to where they were to go after PB. just a coupla years later and i think that tune would have featured variety mic distortion vocal treatment

Itís nice to see the Ďboard back together againí! Took me a week or so to remember my PW, but here I am. Hope all of you are doing great!!!

As it relates to PB....I would say Hey Ladies. Iím always skipping over the song and lets be honest....it wasnít exactly the best song selection by Capital to put out as the 1st single. It would have been great if they put out a live version of Shake Your Rump or Shadrach as the 1st single/video. Shadrachon Soul Train = A++++

agreed. i think that song always sounded more beastie than dust bros.

the way they use that stab from Pink Floyd's 'Time' is so wicked, and the 'Mississippi Queen' fill, complete with the feedback sliver. omg, dopeness overload
