Find Me On:
When you weren’t looking somebody hacked in to your system and moved “Daft Punk Is Playing At My House” down from #1 to #8.
You might wanna fix that.
I’ll say what’s probably been said fifty times above me…….
It’s so “Not Cool” to list the giant single when making these lists that it’s become “not cool squared”
Last Night is absolute pop perfection. Take off your white belt and shoes and get over yourself.
Blochead out. (drops the mic)
I’m looking forward to complaining about others complaints. As well as a possible collaboration of Aaron Sorkin and DMX. Should be trite AND angry.
On a completely unoriginal note,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,two bitches.
#1 – again, Chromatics WAY too low
#2 – I’ve already declared Perfume Genius as my album o’ the year. When an almost embarassingly heterosexual 47 year old man with 5 kids is moved to tears by the tales of a young gay man it’s the truth in music we rarely see these days. BUT THAT ALBUM
Seeing Girls @ #1 makes my little heart beat faster. Best band in the world….best album.
Pains of Being Pure at Heart is my #2……..Then Lykke.
I had thought the GUITAR GOD was dead and buried as a concept……..
Jack White proved me wrong. Rolling Stone continues it’s alienation of anybody under 40 years of age.
WOW. Get over yourselves. I’m a 45 year old self admitted aging ass music hipster. I’ve bought and indulged in all things “cool” and “fresh” for the past 20+ years. These songs are amazing. I’m sick of reading the BS about this artist. Listen to the songs and shut up.
We’re all gay faggots? Thanks for straightening that out. I was beginning to fear I was a straight faggot or even worse a gay heterosexual. The horror. Double speak much?
On a side note…..this is the single worst sounding music I’ve heard in years. And I kinda like both Metallica AND Lou Reed.
Young Folks by Peter Bjorn and John?
It’s always such a surprise when you’re sure of what’s gonna be on these things and then yer WAY off….
MAPS by YEAH YEAH YEAH’s is easily my #1 of the decade. Not in the top 100?
Sooooo..here’s the thing: Metal is similar to Reggae, Prog., The Grateful Dead, Techo and several other musical trips a soul can take. It’s a great trip and each every one of them will round out the music geeks understanding of sound. The other thing these trips (and several others) do is “lock-up” the music geek.
If you’re not careful you can get stuck in these ruts and not move forward. Actually forward is not quite right……around would be better. When you hear a Metal fan say that the band X new album is
“incredibly ambitious, diverse” what we’re talking about here is “incredibly ambitious, diverse” for METAL.
To say that anything in metal is truly ambitious and diverse is perverse. The music itself is limiting due to it’s one overwhelming goal: brutality. Don’t get me wrong, brutality has it’s place and I love it when I’m in the mood for it. Just as I love things that are beautiful, weird or sad. And when those moods hit me I might grab Jens Lekman, Ariel Pink of Bon Iver, respectively…..Keep moving forward my fellow geeks.
Here’s another bitch regarding Titus Andronicus not being on there. It’s pretty rare that a band hits that still fits the “important” bullet points. Leave it to NPR listeners to not realize when one hits the ground runnin’.
I’m 44 years old and long ago gave up my love of punk. It still makes me happy when I hear it but I’m just not young enough or angry enough for punk to truly resonate anymore. Wait a tic….what in the @#$ is this Titus Andronicus all about? Punk still lives and it can still make a middle aged fat guy pound his steering wheel like he was listening to The Ramones as a kid. Thankx, TA.
