I smell and a complete breakdown coming on. What a clown show.
Over/under on him pulling some Hasselhoff burger type shit before his next album comes out?
I love “lasat year”! It’s my favorite year!
Wow. Any idiot with access to the internet can easily find out that Nirvana is on the Vans Warped Tour.
so so so true.
LDR is in the stall position, kinda no telling if it’s going to rise or plummet. You haven’t been paying attention, Davey.
Oh, ripping off Lizzy Grant happened to be after ripping off Madonna. Got it. There was some ripping off Warhol and MIA thrown in somewhere, too, right?
Which would? Who doesn’t?
If you’re referring to Gaga, that woman gets way more credit than she deserves. I’m not a huge LDR fan either but all Gaga does is regurgitate pop culture references from the past 20 years and try to claim credit for it. She’s a wannabe Modonna except Madonna actually had the vision to start trends and push boundaries in an original and captivating way. Gaga relies on easy shock value and hypocritical BS. If she wasn’t wearing steaks, she’d be considered another cookie cutter pop singer (but happens to play more piano). Anytime people refer to how “arty” she is, they’re just fools falling for the cheap blood and flames gimmicks. Surface over substance.
I’m with you, Whale. The message aside, the writing is just terrible in general.
That being said, Gaga does suck bad.
Kidchair nailed it. There’s too much assuming one way or the other. If was that calculated, it doesn’t seem executed well enough. And if it wasn’t calculated enough, should we really give that much of a shit?
Do you like the way the album art looks? How much do you value how much you like the way the album art looks, compared to how much you like the music? I can name a handful of amazing albums with less-than-stellar art…and it doesn’t matter much that the art’s less-than-stellar. Thank goodness I didn’t (pre)judge the band for it.
Oh, they’ve never done a color photo or smiled in a photo? So what? Wisely and creatively used color (literally and figuratively speaking) and expression are more valuable than playing it safe with the standard blank play. Because they’re music sounds like it does, they’re too insecure or unoriginal to go anywhere visually beyond the above? Sounds like this band may try too hard to not try enough.
Almost forgot – their music. It’s decent. Probably wouldn’t be talked about as much if the band wasn’t comprised of attractive females. Kinda sounds like a mix of some pre-”Intimacy” Bloc Party moments and the cheese of mid-’80s Rush.
Suf – “Am I reading too much into this?”
Us – “YES.”
