Yeah that's another thing -- despite my lower of opinion of him now, I still would really love to hang out with that dude.

If you take a look at the Premature Evaluation for Bloom by Beach House back in 2012, that's when we were all blessed to witness Joe Howse's steadfast rejection of album leaks in favor of purchasing records at local record stores. On that day, he revealed himself to encompass every good quality that one can possible have, and we were awestruck.

While we're talking about perfect parts of new music, the beat drop on "DUCKWORTH." is perfect.

Is that Odell Beckham Jr. next to the kid toward the end of the video? Haha what.

I used to love Danger Mouse, up until about 2011 or so. Then it just felt like he neutered everything he touched and completely sapped the personality and unique sound out of whoever he was producing. It all just sounded like Danger Mouse. When I listened to the Black Keys' Turn Blue, I honestly couldn't tell the difference between that and Broken Bells' latest until the vocals came in. I love a lot of what he's done, but I'm of the opinion that he fell off.

Try listening to "Under the Pressure" with no distractions, especially at around the 4 minute mark after the drums drop out and then come back in. Oh man. If you don't like that, I don't know what to say.

Awesome album. There's something to be said about an album that can be sold at Starbucks and gain mass appeal, but is still intimate and interesting and beautiful in a unique way. I appreciate the writer's pure devotion to it -- everyone has those albums, and it's a joy to read about from another's perspective. Going to have to re-visit this one soon.

So does Spotify Premium classify as the paywall they're talking about? Just want to make sure it's not some kind of additional cost on top of that.

I still don't know how I feel about Jack Antonoff's work as a whole. Definitely not into this one that much.

The "ugh, I don't like it" is so perfect before the beat drop.

Just to be clear, my comment is mostly in response to ofmice and my disagreement with his premise. Should have replied to him.

In the past, I've found it difficult to enjoy the musical output of someone in Kendrick's position, where the expectations are so high and the potential for my own personal disappointment outweighs my enjoyment of a new album. Although the positioning hasn't settled yet in my mind, it's likely that in the end, I'll still consider GKMC and TPAB better then DAMN. But DAMN, I really enjoy this freaking album. It is just a joy to listen to. When I listen to it, somehow I'm able to strip away all the expectations and savor it on its own terms, and it's just been really satisfying.

I also think it's ok for a rapper to just rap, but I actually disagree with his assertion that it's just a rap album with random beats and and boasts. There's a lot of contemplation and quiet moments and emotional peaks and valleys, not to mention the little adornments here and there in the beats. I respect the opinion, and can imagine being disappointed by something that doesn't reach the conceptual heights of GKMC and TPAB, but I whole-heartedly disagree.

Just saw that DUCKWORTH was produced by 9th Wonder, and it makes so much sense. I used to bump the stuff he did with Murs back in high school all the time. I love that DUCKWORTH beat.
