Star remains one of my favorite albums of the early 90's. We did a CD gift grab/Yankee Swap/White elephant/whatever you call it for the music journal this Christmas and that's the album I brought in.

Honestly not feeling this all that much. Kind of sounds like a bunch of false starts that never get where they're trying to go.

Can't wait until I turn 25 in six years and get to do this :'( Meanwhile I can vote for President.

I pose that the length/somewhat repetitiveness of the album is intended to mirror the inescapable, cyclical nature of drug addiction that ZCS sings about throughout so much of the record. I could also be looking way too hard into it.

DIIV's album is still on repeat for me. Way more to that album than appears; once you put it under the magnifying glass, you see there are some really fantastic lyrics and ideas all over the place.

Really interesting and creative how they used emojis not only as an artistic choice but as a way to connect the song to the video.

New York Kiss is a sneakily fantastic closer as well.

Dammit it's called Room! The Room is the Tommy Wiseau film that's notoriously bad,

Turns out Carol isn't a best picture nom... oops. Saw Mad Max when it came out too, that was some movie.

Saw both The Room and Carol this week (nice little indie theater five minute walk from my dorm is a huge plus), thought both great but liked The Room a little bit more.

"Mitsubishi Macchiato" is such a Vampire Weekend name

I think what a lot of artists (mainly commercially viable ones) are doing now since albums are so fluid/adaptable nowadays is if a single doesn't do too well commercially, they leave it off the record, since they already know it won't blow up. I guess this could be true of singles that do decently well too, actually.

Hoping the new record sounds a bit more like The Big Roar than Wolf's Law production-wise, Matt's drumming is one of the best components of this band and he was kind of buried in mix on Wolf's Law (and a little bit on this song too)

Apparently he was on that radio show at the same time so maybe it's just a shout-out to him for that reason?

I really hope I didn't come off sounding douchey in any way, I just thought it was a funny juxtaposition. If I did I'm super sorry!
