Find Me On:
Not a terrible list, though I’d place Let It Be higher. Actually, I’d rate Let It Be Naked up there in the top 5.
There is a difference between 24 bit and 16 bit lossless for sure. Bass is rounder and fuller, the sound spectrum is wider and highs ‘sparkle’ more, especially on cymbals.
But the difference between a lossless 16 bit 44.1 file and a high-end mp3 (256kbps +) is negligible. Anybody who says they notice a difference between these two formats is likely hearing what they want to hear.
Actually, he’s right and you’re wrong. I’ve recorded my rock music in several studios and the producers have always stuck to 24 bit depth. Whether they use 192, 96 or 48 sample rate is their preference, but recording in 16 bit is very limiting in the long run and most producers would scoff at that suggestion.
So basically one egomaniac is parodying another.
You guys take your opinions way too seriously.
If you can’t download it then it’s pointless having these monthly mixes anymore.
From best to worst:
Hail to the thief
King of Limbs
Coldplay’s first four albums are better than Hail to the Thief.
I guess I’m the odd one out but I don’t see what all the fuss is about. Kind of sounds like a dinosaur trying to relive his glory days of music-making. The growled, doubled “Came back haunted” in the chorus borders on satire.
This has been the worst year for music I can remember in awhile.
Every single song off the bootleg version of Extraordinary Machine is Fiona’s best.
omg it turned 19 last year and 18 the year before!
What a terrible idea. I don’t have time in my busy day for Spotify bullshit. I’m afraid this site is looking useless to me now, guess I’ll have to go back to Pitchfork and other blogs.
Sounds like Ringo DeathStarr.
Yes, I must be racist because I don’t recognize rap as legitimate music/art. Every disagreement in the world is because of somebody’s skin color. Grow up.
Dunno why all this rap shit is in here. I’m guessing you guys listen to half of one song and then go, “We have to include this shit so we don’t get pigeonholed as a rock-only site.”
What a crazy bitch.
Unfair for people who are smart enough to stay off Facebook.
Sgt. Pepper forever.
I prefer mine:
1. Ok Computer
2. The Bends
3. Kid A
4. In Rainbows
6. The King Of Limbs
7. Hail To The Thief
8. Pablo Honey
You’re a boy?
Can we seriously stop celebrating the useless anniversary of every album every week? What a waste of time.
It would be funny if all of the interpretations turn out awfully wrong and it forces Beck to end up recording it on his own.
Love the buffer in the middle of the first song.
I don’t feel shame downloading music without paying for it because I wouldn’t have paid for it anyway.
