I dig the butterflies on Elton John’s jacket.
Man, you folks are cynical. This is great. Yes it is over the top…it is supposed to be over the top and it obviously isn’t meant to replace the original. My only complaint is that they fucked up the coda. Also, I would’ve loved to see Macca – especially since they obviously employed “Beatlesesque” orchestration for this arrangement.
“Nose Grows Some” is really stunning.
From that review of the Eraser:
“So, on the heels of the news that Radiohead’s vaunted seventh full-length wouldn’t be ready any time soon, Yorke carpet-bombed fans in May by announcing The Eraser.
That was a little over seven weeks ago, and you can be sure the window between name and release was purposely kept small so as to mitigate against the weight of expectation.”
ha…how times have changed.
Why don’t you do us all a favor and post the album on a torrent?
I don’t think the issue is the free album…rather, people feel somewhat violated that Apple downloaded an album to their phone without consent. Storage space isn’t free…and really neither is this album.
The Eagles…keepin it miserable since 1971.
I would buy a whole album of McCartney jamming with a bunch of old acoustic blues hands. I don’t understand the article…but I go to bed with my straw man teddy bear every night. We make sweet love.
It seems pretty damn outrageous the state of NY makes the Lennon family go through this appeal process every two years. Is he up for parole every two years for as long as he lives (or rather as long as he’s denied parole and still lives)?
I read this as Morrossey stopping by his label’s office.
