Nebraska's good and all, but Darkness on the Edge of Town has "Candy's Room."

It will be weird read Bruce rambling about his childhood and his father and not having the E Street band launch into "Growing Up" after a few minutes.

Oh fuck, nobody tell him what "Mein Kampf" means until Friday. I don't think anyone would buy any of my "it's a Knausgaard reference" defenses.

I would probably listen to it more if they didn't play edited versions of tracks. That shit distracts me well past the point of annoyance.

I agree, just want to offer a quasi-exception: "Return to the 36 Chambers: The Dirty Version" - ODB

So is this an album or a mixtape? Does the fact that a DJ doesn't shout his tag over every fucking song make it an album?

just go with "Gospel Album With Curse Words"... or "Seven Motherfucking Bitch Ass Swans and Cousins Who Steal Laptops"

The description of the lyric "today, New York feels like an island," as "a metaphor that manages the remarkable feat of being clichéd and geographically hilarious" reads to me like someone who was desperately searching for reasons to hate the record. I mean, it's not profound or anything, but they're suggesting that New York is in Kansas or something. I mean, to most people I'd guess New York doesn't really ever feel like an island.

Wait, Marc Bolan had a son he named Rolan Bolan?!?! (I'm gonna be really disappointed if his last name is Jones)

January 21, 2016 on Hear David Bowie’s Hilarious Rock Star Impressions In Unearthed Studio Outtake
I was thinking this morning. I listened to a huge chunk of Bowie's catalogue last week. I was listening to his new album all weekend. I’m sure many of his fans were doing the same thing. It was like a Last Supper before our relationship with the music would inevitably change. He was able to say goodbye to his fans without the maudlin sentimentality that goes with overly conscious farewells. What a way to go.

Man, maybe some aspects of "China Girl" have aged, but Stevie soloing over that bassline is fucking timeless.

I had friends who drove from Alabama to Vermont for the "final" Phish show. After heavy rain, they stopped letting cars in at the site when only 20,000 of the expected 100,000 attendees had arrived. So my friends had to leave their car on the roadside and hike for several miles to get to the festival site, for what they described as an emotional but mediocre show. Phish reunited less than 5 years later. So... yeah, I don't feel too bad for people who were able to get tickets to that MSG show.

I knew I always thought New York city cops were pretty erudite before I heard "Is This It." (or, before I downloaded the track off Napster because it wasn't on the US release)
