I’ve been listening to this today and it’s such an amazing record: heartfelt, beautifully performed, sung and produced. I did enjoy his first solo output, but this is, to my ears, a much more accomplished record than Lisandre: it flows better, has better songs and the lyrics, god damned, they just hit so deeply inside of me.

It’s not about sound fidelity but being able to perform at all.

I don’t care what the Pitchforks of this word say: I fucking love her record.

Yeap. I felt really bad putting it at #6, but the other records are soooo great.

Have you tried this http://www.unblockyoutube.us ?

I really would like to know your opinion guys about how you rank their records after their comeback. They all sound pretty great to me. Here’s how I rank them:

1. Class Clown Spots a UFO
2. Motivational Jumpsuit
3. The Bears for Lunch
4. Let’s Go Eat the Factory
5. Cool Planet
6. English Little League

But then again English Little League is still a great record and Let’s Go Eat the Factory a real grower.

I guess that both Miguel and Jessie Ware audiences are rather the people who actually listen and love their music than what you personally think is supposed to be their “normal” key-demographics. You know what I’ve listen to today while working? Aphex Twin, XTC, Deafheaven, Dylan, Funkadelic and Queen. Guess I’m just a scary monster, super freak.

I love Mark and I’ve been a fan since, well, 1993. But he’s got a horrible attitude live. Some years ago, he didn’t performed in Famalicão, Portugal, because he wasn’t payed before the show. He didn’t care about his fans (like me) who rode several mile to see him live. He just walked away. Now that T-Shirt stunt is a typical Leon Curb Your Enthusiasm “flip-flop that motherfucker” move. Love it.

Was that last link really necessary?

Interactive video for MTV. Can’t you see the irony? They made the corporation pay the only kind of music video that cannot be broadcasted by them. And MTV usually do not pay shit for the music videos they broadcast, actually they receive money to broadcast them.
