Two versions of Blond, sounds like Blonde on Blonde.

To me, this is sheer perfection: music and visuals. And God knows how ready I was to be underwhelmed.

I was born in France, came to Portugal when I was ten. I immediately fell in love with its language from beyond the sea, the shore with its land putrified by seaweed, its mountains which harvest an absolutely unique shade of pale blue, its humble, hard-working and adventurous people, my mum and my dad, both of them now a mineral part of its rich land, it will be an honour to die here one day, falo do coração.

Bacalhau and Caldo Verde are the roof of my mouth.

John Fiske defined and applied the concept of producerly texts to media products that allow its audience to participate in the production of its meaning through an exercise of what he calls excessive reading. Producerly texts have loose ends that escape its control, meanings that exceed its own power to discipline them, gaps wide enough for whole new texts to be produced in them by their readers. In other words, a media product does not have to give up having a clearly defined message, but in so far as it limits its potential meanings, it limits its potential circulation. A producerly text is, therefore, one that can be enjoyed, accessed and read on multiple levels: it can be taken at face value, but it also leaves room for other preferred readings which may include deeper and more active interpretations. Kanye's video for "Famous" is producerly vertigo. And I'm thrilled that Herzog recognizes that.

I also love the extra track Boy King Trash, they did what Phoenix have done with their last record, assembling bits of unfinished tracks. I really love the acoustic bits and it made me think that I would love an Automatic For The People kind of record from them.

These dick rants were a colateral effect to my discovering of the Monday podcast by Bill Burr. And these dialogues were a way for me to quote Norm MacDonald endlessly.

It's too early for me to compare it with the rest of their stellar discography. I think it might have my favourite vocals from them, though.

The sum of its parts is smaller than the record as a whole, definitely. It is beautifully sequenced too. When I listened to Creatures I thought this could only be a killer opening track, but they proved me wrong: it closes beautifully the first half of the album.

All growers suffer from this sort of reviews. These kind of records need time to be fully absorbed and enjoyed and WB and oM are definitely prime examples of bands that require a lot of dedication to its listeners.

Massive grower in did. Funny how a review that literally mocks the lyrical content of the album, says that Ponytail (amazing track!) is the best cut - that's the one song about going in and going out. The second half of the record is starting to sound even better than the first one. Anyway, great to see that there is a lot of people enjoy this great record.
