Was coming here to troll and say "wanted this to be a Neil Young cover" but then I read your endorsement, actually listened, and yeah I dig this a lot, haha.

Seeing them at FYF in L.A. and then at the Greek in Berkeley 6 days later. Can't wait.

Was coming here to say that album is the most fun and listenable of the year for me, by far.

Can't believe I'm beating Stereopun to saying "The Numbers" just didn't add up.

Super underrated. "Fine Line" and "Riding to Vanity Fair" are also favorites of mine. I'm really impressed he made such a fresh sounding album that late I. His career.

I love this Chris, thanks for sharing. My love of the Beatles dates back to watching Yellow Submarine for the first time at 6 years old, so I also relate to originally being attracted to the goofiness and childlike aspects of their songs. My love for them progressed as I discovered "Strawberry Fields Forever" and Revolver and the White Album, my mind continually being blown with each new Beatles CD purchased at Best Buy. I saw Paul at Candlestick Park in SF two years ago. The Beatles last show was at Candlestick in 1966, and this show in 2014 was Candlestick's last event before being torn down. John has always been my favorite Beatle -- the "cool one," the one behind most of my favorite songs. But I think I relate a lot more to Paul -- not quite as cool maybe, but affable and obsessed with the details of the songs they made. I'm really glad I'm alive while he still is, and was able to see him. It was one of my favorite experiences.

"One of These Days" is a strong contender for Pink Floyd's most badass song. That intense bass is amazing. Also want to 'echo' *wink* everyone's thoughts on Meddle. Tied with Dark Side of the Moon atop my favorite Pink Floyd albums. Besides the mystic wonder of "Echoes," I really, really like the melody on "Fearless."

I'm convinced the lack of Steve Albini is why I never really got into Here and Nowhere Else by Cloud Nothings. After his mastery on Attack On Memory, it was only downhill from there.

No matter how hard Lars tries with the beanie and tux, he won't ever top the infamy of that St. Anger snare drum.

I wasn't being sarcastic by the way, if that's the reason for the downvotes. Scott and Amir's responses were perfect.

That Affleck part was painful to watch. Couldn't get through the whole thing. I'll add my voice to those who are not sold on the Ringer just yet. Grantland was as good as it gets (well, tied with Stereogum). Hoping the Ringer can catch up.

My friend has a cousin who works for some firm that reads scripts and watches footage for TV shows and suggests soundtrack songs, and one of the shows she actually worked on was Silicon Valley. I want that job.
