With our love, we could save the world…if they only knew.
Does that make Watch the Throne = Two Virgins (?)
I give up.
Hot damn…We exist thumps my brain so hard.
Supersymmetry is an amazing song. It may be the album’s best.
The New Yorker panned this album (and McCartney, in general), but I think this is a really strong effort. I do wish he would focus his efforts. The guy who basically invented the concept album and popularized album cohesion should put more towards artistic endeavors like his fantastic The Fireman album “Electric Arguments” or his album with Nigel Godrich, “Chaos and Creation…” Of course, I’m just some schmuck on a message board and he’s Paul McCartney. At 71, I guess he can do whatever the hell he wants. New is a great album and well worth McCartney’s catalogue.
This song is GREAT! Grizzly Bear – even their trash tastes good.
Keep reading, sailor.
Wow. Epic. If the whole album can support the weight of this single – we’ll have another classic from Arcade Fire.
I’m a big fan of this song. I hope the new album is this sprightly.
2013, we get it. You can let up now.
This list is fine, but you snub Devotion. All the Years, Heart of Chambers, Astronaut, and Home Again are all great songs and deserve recognition. I’d also add Heart and Lungs from their eponymous debut. Master of None is out of place here. You shouldn’t let film association influence your lists.
So…when are we doing one of these list things for Sufjan?
Talk to me Prince.
Kanye’s an angry man. It’s a hard life.
“May I bang on this?”
I think this is a brilliant album. It is messy, disjointed, dense to the point of confusion, and totally irreverent – but all in a manner seen with other great works of art. It seems silly to perch aloft an album whose composers are clearly thumbing their nose at their audience in jest – but it’s warranted.
The break in Mercury Man before the final section send off is filled with sample upon sample – like Monet creating new colors, layering color upon color on the canvas – AC creates new sounds layering instruments and samples on top of each other…using soundscape as their canvas.
I love this album and I hope they continue working collaboratively, together – in person. There is no doubt the final product benefited from their writing and recording this album together in the studio.
A day in and this is album of the year thus far for me.
I am blown away. I cower meekly in the corner. That was magnificent.
Wow…I’m blown away. I cower meekly in the corner. That was magnificent.
This is a great song (Applesauce).
CAN WE BUY THIS NOW, PLEASE??? GIMME GIMME GIMME GIMME GIMME
But have you seen the clouds?
