This was heartbreaking. I wonder how Omar (volta) is doing
I loved this album, the criticism it received was a joke. Too much hypocrisy in the industry, and a lot of Cribbing Ideas, Glad Handing and Basically Following the Leader.
How did ALL of those reviews say bad things about a really good album… And now the reviewers are returning to say, “well, you know, we didn’t think about…” Come The Fuck On.
How about instead of hopping on the trend that says what something Is or Isn’t or how much it Sucks or Rawks, we actually CONSIDER THE FUCKING ART AND JUDGE IT ON ITS’ CONTENT as opposed to, ya know, reading what RS and Pitchfork said and making sure we hit our marks?
This kinda insanity is half the reason I never bothered to be a journo – so much pressure to say something untrue because someone with money tells you what to say.
WE’vE GOT TO GET BACK TO THE SELLING OUT
Awww, this was tender and sweet, a good match for this bittersweet song
Does his voice sound too weak for what he’s trying to do, or am I not getting it? Entirely possible I am not getting it. He does well with all kinds of synths and guitars and drums wailing, but with a sparser more minimalist feel (an attempt to pump up his voice strength in the overall mix/feel?) it hurts to hear him strain.
Used to drive me nuts (and still Kinda does, I guess), I don’t know why.
Rivers needs to Kchill
So amazing, gave me the chills, not even an Arcade Fire fan
You’re Just Trolling, right?
Because this track is a fucking monstah, and I ain’t speakin on the title
but this track is so ill it got me pulled over by an ambulance earlier son
Good Harmonies, pretty Sharp. Not sure what they were singing about, but It was pretty.
Her Singing Matches Her Acting. Brava, Gossip Girl.
Pretty Excited to Hear it, cant wait to see him
That Said: PosterBoard, Marker, Glitter? Is this the primary medium of a Cheerleader, 8th Grader, or Post Apocalyptic Genius/Schizophrenic/Artist/Prophet?
Not a bad Jam, but this ‘Easy Bear’ seemed like it was going somewhere it never found. And upon listening to 2 tracks from Hesta’s EP, I am glad to hear Easy Bear didn’t wander into the rest of Hesta Prynn’s Rip-Rop-Rippity-Rap Woods.
I guess I’m not deep enough into this scene, but this soundes like a slowed 80s Chicago House….
I FEEL FAMOUS SCOTT TALKED TO ME
I think Gabe Puts up these Cross Sterogum/Videogum Posts with the comment closed on VG so the VG Monsters can come post witty, pithy comments here. You know, just so SG doesn’t feel left out.
I miss you on the VGUM!!! Come Back!!!!
I guess you would have been happier if it were illegal Mexicans Depicted being taken out of LA (Or AZ?) and shoved thru a mine filled border to be sent back to their country?
Wasn’t trying to put you in a box homie, you did that to yourself with your affiliations and choices.
Also wasn’t attempting to single you out, just hoping to elucidate the reasons behind your resonance. (and your Intrusive FB CONNECT feature happened to help me nicely)
Good Call on dropping that group from your list there Timmy.
It was pretty awful. I am not a fan of MGMT, nor am I a hater. But after these performances, I wonder why anyone likes them. “Congrats! You discovered the Beach Boys! CULTURE”
Of course (No Offense, Tim) the dude being offended by the use of American Men In Black is a Sarah Palin supporter, so, take from that what you will.
Take offense to whatever you’d like but Know that ALL governments have blood of innocents on their hands and the US has a disproportionate amount of blood, particularly since they’ve been the hegemonic power lo the last three decades. Nevermind all of the Nation Building and Revolution fomenting the US has encouraged/created since the inceptions of the FBI and CIA.
OH NOES, The Illuminati are taking over Robyn now too
When we’re talking tyrannosaurus, Stillness is definitely the Move.
He didn’t work with dre out of a desire to sell records, he wanted to work with an artist he enjoyed. Artistic integrity IS the argument, clearly you don’t know much about Trent Reznor (And inasmuch as it’s laid out in the article and you still choose to refute his version perhaps you are best satisfied doing or listening to something else)
