Final Thoughts:

I love the YouTube show What’s in my Bag, where famous musicians pick out albums at Amoeba music, I don’t remember who picked this one out, but I gave it a listen. Incredible String Band is one of those groups that seem revered but I don’t know many people who actually listen to them. At the end of the day it just wasn’t my thing, it was a little too twangy and repetitive for my liking. I guess I was just waiting to hear something that justified the hype and it never arrived. Purest will probably call me an ignorant idiot, but at the end of the day No Ruinous Feud is a bland album from an over-hyped group.
