Clearly we've entered a new golden age for misplaced eyeballs on album covers.

June 15, 2017 on Queens Of The Stone Age – “The Way You Used To Do”
Aside from the way the guitars are panned and the handclaps this sounds like a pretty standard Queens of the Stone Age track.

Sorry, this was a Verve Pipe joke. It's understandable, even admirable, that not everyone would get it.

For the life of me I cannot believe anyone would name an album Villains.

So I guess they've officially entered their Pop Mart phase.

The average Jeopardy contestant knows more about the Pacific Ocean than the Frank Ocean. They're more interested in frank discussions about Shakespeare than Frank Ocean's music. I'd go so far as saying they could sooner identify Francisco Franco's son than the singer Frank Ocean.

Excited to hear this one and Morby's new record. And 2 Chainz. I mean, I don't expect it to be good necessarily, but he's usually good for a laugh or two.

Maybe he had "visit South Dakota jail" as item one on an elaborate bucket list inspired by the Twin Peaks revival.

To these ears, Katy Perry's music seems more indebted to the Crystal Method than the Socratic Method.

I actually like this one better than Helplessness Blues. The proggy stuff seems less forced, more fluid, and while the lyrics are definitely impenetrable, they're at least not as clumsy as previous. Now to be fair, my view of Helplessness Blues is far from the consensus –– people, it seems, really liked that album. But this one strikes me as a solid, well-crafted album, even if it's not brimming with excellent standalone songs.

This is part of my new comment series, "The Rebel Commenter." It follows the exploits of a rough and tumble character who isn't afraid to push buttons, both literally and metaphorically speaking.

Yeah I feel you there. It's worth noting that I also really like it as piece of music –– I appreciate it as a fan of Mount Eerie. Yet since I'm also a human with feelings, it's extremely difficult to listen to. Cumulatively, though, it's an extremely powerful thing that I'll always regard with a certain degree of awe.

My preferred narrative is "musicians worked really hard to make good music, succeeded."
