    Nilsson's ***** Cats is criminally underrated. or maybe i'm just am a sucker for sad dudes partying to numb the pain. I love the record and along with Walls and Bridges perhaps my fave thing Lennon did during this period...

    A bit of filter overkill.

    I enjoy all of the Lost Weekend recordings and productions; probably my favorite Lennon solo period.

    I don't see anything very objectionable about the first word.

    The album was originally going to be called Strange Pussies. Let's see how the filter deals with that.

    Edit: looks like the plural is OK. Huh.

    Maybe if you spell it as one word:
    Like, "Tom Jones hit song, "What's New, Pussycat?"

    Well, if some folks didn't get into fights and used the word or talked about the different type of *****, we would not have had to add it in to the word censor. :)

    Yeah but we usually require seven asterisks, not five.

    I cant take the album. All it does is remind me of how Harry ripped his vocal chords out to the point of bleeding and ruined the most beautiful of voices. Oh, and thanks John for encouraging this.

    ...and now Greg knows how on the internet, no matter the venue or the age of its users, you can't have a reasonable discussion about one of the greatest 'wasted' albums of all time without invoking a bunch of kitty memes.

    Looks like that record's wasted. I'll bet the stylus is shot too.

    Some good songs, but is voice is wrecked to the point it actually hurts my throat to listen to it.

    Evidence that those guys kinda needed to spend some time away from each other for their health.

    My post from a previous Nilsson thread:

    When I first dropped the needle onto "***** Cats" (typical Harry humor in that title, eh?), I had to ask myself, "What the he!! happened here?!". As I finished the listnening session with "Rock Around The Clock", I envisioned the studio where Harry recorded this mess as being roped off with crime scene tape and a lot of flashing lights from squads and ambulances surrounding the building.

    Harry's voice blown out and Lennon's squashed sound equaled a tough initial listen for me.

    Did Harry have throat cancer?

    Did Lennon record these songs on a Panasonic cassette recorder?

    Only 4 1/2 Harry songs?

    Two covers that I can't listen to without wincing in throat agony ( "Loop de Loop" and "Save The Last Dance For Me")?

    And all of this topped off with a "Rock Around The Clock" version that sounds like a garage band rehersal tape...Sad.

    I've since come to accept how rough this entire album is, but that dosen't mean that I love inferior Harry Nilsson product.

    Harry's songwriting abilities (especially lyrics) seemed to be in decline at this time in his life. I do enjoy Harry's original songs, but they really don't shine like his previous work.

    "Son Of Schmilsson". This is rock and roll.

    "***** Cats". This is rock and roll on drugs.

    On the '99 Buddha release of this disc, Curtis Armstrong writes some great ultra-informative liner notes. If not for the notes, pick this disc up for the bonus track demo of "Save The Last Dance For Me". Wow. Now that is the Harry that I had come to know and love!

    Sounds like a Beck sample to me.
