Okay that makes sense. Nina Simone is a better comparison, but the first time I heard Antony and the Johnsons I thought her voice sounded like Jeff Buckley. But that might be me thinking too binaurally and/or it might just be a function of just the Antony and the Johnsons and the expectations that created the first time I heard her voice. I do think that, vocals aside, her music isn't "girl music," in the sense you mention above, kind of like Joanna Newsom, who Pitchfork has given great review to. I think the bias against being too associated with that is definitely there, which makes me hesitate from giving them full credit.

I feel like I should thank Chance for this one too.

Kinda crazy how this 17 song, 75 minute album seems more focused and consistent than the 10 song, 39 minute "Overgrown" (which I also really enjoyed).

That's not meant in the pejorative sense. They're different bands with vastly different influences.

Sorry, Justin. Maybe after I listen to "The Colour in Anything" once or twice, if the "Chance 3" hasn't come out by then.

It's really only a fluke of geography and history that Pearl Jam even gets compared with Nirvana.

Do you think Pitchfork's lack of high scores given to women is indicative of bias against women or indicative of bias against records that sound like they were made by women? I always assumed you were arguing that Pitchfork was biased in their tastes, not straight up biased. Forgive me if I'm wrong, but if I'm not I really don't see how giving a 9.0 to ANOHNI addressees your criticisms.

Dude, we're all kidding. Kim Deal is obviously the best and saying "Doolittle" is better than "Indie Candy" isn't contrarian.

A little off topic, but I was thinking about it the after Prince died, and I don't think any singer has ever inserted more raw, visceral emotion into two words than Sinéad O'Connor inserted into the words "2 U" in the chorus of "Nothing Compares."

I wasn't sure what you're saying, because he was with the band for BSSM, then left in 1992, and came back for Californication.

I'd be surprised if Chance 3 didn't come out tonight. I'd be surprised if LP9 came out tonight.

I agree. I also want to reiterate that James Jamerson is responsible for the basslines on pretty much every single Motown track.

With press releases like this Drake's camp is going reminding me of of a different unrelenting, inescapable powerhouse from a frozen land. https://pbs.twimg.com/media/Cg9kpGMW4AEb7jQ.jpg

Nobody else is mentioning Paul. Listen to the "Hey Bulldog" isolated bass-track and tell me I'm wrong. If that doesn't work, let me tell a story. In 1969, Jimi Hendrix, Miles Davis and Tony Williams did a few jam sessions and were thinking about doing a recording session. They all agreed on the best bassist for the session and sent him a telegram, but he couldn't make it. That bassist... Paul McCartney.
