there was a soundtrack to this movie?
she’s so many things!
geez. i’m surprised more people aren’t bitching about pretty hate machine being number one.
can’t wait for the meredith brooks deconstruction!
…..hey! “go back to 1975″, that’s really clever! because that’s their band name!
GRRRRRR, I’M SO SERIOUS ABOUT HOW I TAKE MY MUSIC!!!!!
::puts on patti smith, takes it so serious::
looking at the above picture of the two of them, you’d never know they were on drugs.
wow. you really don’t like hole.
this is a really dumb post. half of in rainbows was written well in advance of that album. so it sucks?
why were you downvoted for this?
i remember when albini was tapped to produce the album. everyone was like “uh oh, so long nevermind”. everyone thought they were going to go for the throat.
they did, but it wasn’t a big black album, which was what everyone also thought was going to happen.
eh. can’t win ‘em all. or, in MGMT’s case, any of them.
eh. i still like someone great better.
wow, uh….kim, how ya doing?
yeah, this is alllllllright.
::pours cognac into snifter::
dude, it’s canada. nicest people on the planet, they don’t care.
lemme break down the video for you: it’s actually a pretty typical day in canada and is basically what happens all the time up there. even david bowie.
welcome to the alternative/indie music world, where this has happened ad nauseum since time began (the early/mid-80′s). it’s rinse/repeat for some people:
1. band puts out incredible first or first and second albums. buzz begins.
2. band puts out third album, by this time mainstream success and hype are bubbling out of the pot.
3. band, who has already been on a evolving trajectory with trying new sounds, actually strays away from making the usual, by numbers approach (which would have been met with just as much scorn from the peanut gallery, i assure you)
4. people who were into them since the beginning (which they will tell you this several times while blasting their new stuff) become hostile and hate new sound/fans/album
rinse/repeat. the only band i’ve seen escape this is radiohead, and i don’t know how the hell they did it.
i’m really partial to their cover of police on my back. but if i go with strictly original, prob guns of brixton.
do yourself a favor: put some headphones on, and play head down. that should erase all butt rock thoughts from your head.
1: slaves and bulldozers
2: beyond the wheel
3: searching with my good eye closed
5: head down
6: nothing to say
7: 4th of july
8: jesus christ pose
9: mind riot
10: room a thousand years wide
hon mention: their cover of devo’s “girl u want” is fucking amazing.
but in all honesty, unless slaves and bulldozers is on that list i can’t take it seriously. and nothing from ultramega ok? no beyond the wheel? that song is like a fucking wrecking ball.
the album that keeps on giving, even two years later.
the saga continues.
i’m right though.
