Weird, I just heard a riff of theirs being used on a segue on TV and thought to myself that I hadn't heard any of their music in a while... I don't think I have any on my iPod, but I probably have the CDs some where in the attic. I guess that says it all, no?

I've been a fan since Lifes Rich Pageant came out in the mid-80s. I think Automatic for the People was a great album, but they kinda lost me after that. Not that they went stale or anything, it's just their and my musical tastes took different paths.
Time is a great teacher, but unfortunately it kills all its pupils.

They had a good run. Nothing wrong with calling it quits when you've pretty much said all you have to say musically. There's a lot of bands that just keep on plugging along well past the time they should have retired the brand. Like old athletes that don't know when to call it a career.

I'm not a huge fan of them, though I do like a few of their songs. I was wondering if there was a thread about this and I'm glad there is. Like them or not, they were a very influental band even though they haven't done much in recent years.

Saw them in concert back in '89 on their "Green" tour. They had alot of energy and the music was enjoyable. Following that I just lost interest as their following albums were rather morose and quite boring. I too honestly thought they packed it in years ago.
