Could've been medium rare.
Your meat analogy just made me think of Kurt Loder's Pros and Cons review:

"The Pros and Cons of Hitch Hiking suggests several things. First, that the most important musical component of Pink Floyd is actually guitarist David Gilmour (whose latest solo album assumes new luster in comparison to this turkey)."

Huh.

I dunno how anyone could prefer About Face to Pros and Cons, but I also like Music From The Elder, so what do I know?

About Face is a lot more fun a listen for me. It's not always high art but "All Lovers are Deranged" is just fun for me. "Murder" is a Top 5 Gilmour song for me. And the rest is just pleasant.

Good point.
My favorite Slayer record is Diabolos En Musica as well.

That or Seasons....hard to say for certain.

I like unwanted toys.

I usually only listen to half of the songs on that album, but I listen to those 5 songs a lot more often than anything that other guy put out. It mixes well with Harper and Gilmour's Unknown Soldier.
