Any RA love?

You Are, I am Mine and Save You are great songs. Not too mention 1/2 Full and Thumbing My Way. At the moment my 2nd fav PJ album (behind Binaural).

I hardly listen to PJ albums anymore, in fact I havent chucked on RA for over 12 months and the other albums I can not remember when I listen to them last, I listen to the boots instead. When I first played RA I automatically thought this is V's part II. Great album and amazing lyrics.
My fav in order

Thumbing my Way
1/2 Full
Can't Keep
You are
Save you
Green Disease
All or None
I am mine
LBC
Help Help
Cropduster
Bushleageur
Get Right
Ghost
Arc

Arc - one of the most amazing moving songs they've done along with thumbing my way

Can't say I have a whole lotta love for this album, but it has its highlights. I like Save You, You Are (Like the live version much better), 1/2 Full.

probably my favorite pj album, beating out vitalogy because it's more consistent. when i see people saying they don't like songs like ghost, half full or help help i just sort of scratch my head and wonder what is wrong with them

Lemme throw some appreciation towards Help Help.

I don't know; that song was just the first to really catch me from RA, and it's been kicking my ass ever since.

Oh yeah, and 1/2 Full absolutely shreds live; even if it does trick you by sounding like Red Mosquito in the beginning...

RA is my second favorite album behind TEN. It has been in heavy rotation in my CD player lately. I love the beginning of 1/2 full, geez that rocks! I absolutely love Arc, I put that song on when Im about to lose my mind. It calms me down. :lol: Right now I think that You Are is my favorite song and I actually have that stuck in my head at this very moment! :P I love all the songs on there, I cant go anywhere without that album.

I have to back you up on this one, I always hear (well 'read' because you guys on the net are the only ones who will talk PJ with me) bad shit about Help Help, but this song kicks ass. The way it goes to chaos at the end is pure Pearl Jam, I dunno, this song grabbed me too, all the naysayers be damned! Get Right is another RA song that gets shit on, but it rules too, balls out, same with Ghost. Nice avatar too, 2-3-98. ;)

we all agree RA is a good album, but Down needed to be on it in place of Help Help!

I like the record, but it's not their best by far. I loved it when I first listened to it, but like many other records that I loved on the first listen it gets worn out with time. No Code and Vs. grew on me and that's why they're my fav. records.

One thing that I like a lot about RA is that the songs can be viewed as a sort of conversation between two people - like an optimists and pessimist, or a sad person and someone trying to cheer them up.

I think it's particulairly the first two songs that bring that idea into my mind, but you can contunue the theme throughout most of them.
