Scott Lapatine | September 30, 2011 - 5:13 pm

Did you guys have a good Radiohead week? (Is every week Radiohead week?) Congrats to Alec Baldwin, Stephen Colbert, and Corban who all got to bask in their presence. Better luck next time, Wall Street. In non-Radiohead news, this weekend Stereogum will be at ATP: I’ll Be Your Mirror, curated by Portishead: follow us on Twitter and we’ll let you know if spot Thom Yorke. Or The Duchess Of Thom Yorke.

THIS WEEK’S 10 HIGHEST RATED COMMENTS

#10

Don Osborn | Sep 27th Score:12

I am not embarrassed about my love for the Reminder. That is a truly wonderful record. Who the fuck cares that other people also liked it? I learned to get over that shit 20 years ago when everyone started liking other records that I liked “first,” i.e. Nevermind, Blood Sugar Sex Magik, Ten, etc. Come on Stereogum; you can grow up too. If “same people who liked The Reminder will probably like this one” then I am looking forward it. cheers.

It’s great to see Michael Robenalt cement himself as the number one commenter in Stereogum, although after two strong releases he will have to hold off other top-tier acts like MikeyObviously, djfreshie and Conor Johnson, all of whom have highly anticipated comments expected soon.

The wildly uneven Michael_ is struggling to find his niche, while hyped newcomer The Aura of the H-Man will want to deliver on his sophomore effort.

Finally, fans continue to wait for the comeback of immensely popular comment pioneer Chris Trash.

Bojan Cimbaljević | Sep 27th Score:-6

I seriously doubt that anyone of you guys have ever been in the same room with a copy of Ride the Lightning, let alone listened to a single song off it, yet you have the audacity to trash Metallica, that’s puny and lame. They fuckin’ rock, and you might as well continue listening to Lady Gaga and the likes and stay the fuck away.
