It’s the standard “i’m mad because you don’t like what I like”.

And that’s what it is — I go every year because it’s a fun weekend trip. Sometimes the lineups are better than others, every year someone you expected nothing from will surprise you, etc. But every year, it’s -always- a great time. We can all get on our high horse about our year end lists, but esp in the upper midwest when summer is so fleeting, is it so wrong to want to just pound a couple beers and listen to music?

I mean, no one’s demanding that you be a fan. It’s cool if you don’t want to go. You’re in chicago, you can see the same bands play in town that week, or the next time they’re around.

cmmon, jump on the bandwagon. bonus points if you complain about the lineup without suggesting who you’d rather see!

Normally I’m up for differing opinions, but you can’t deny HIssing Fauna is by far their best work.

Seriously, is there any site left that doesn’t have “From the web” “Other links from around the web” “Other links that might interest you” “Links from our partners”?

The side banner ad with the creepy looking kid for Levi’s was bad enough.

I’ve been a huge (huge!) Sufjan fan since day one, and I honestly think I”m the only person out there that finds Illinois to be the weakest of his albums by far. The songwriting is so contrived / ham-fisted / awkward. It’s hard for me to even listen to that album.

Michigan is my favorite, just the raw emotion of it all, it’s such a genuine / likable album. It established the sound. It makes Illinois sound like a bad retread. I guess a lot of it probably has to do with when you first started listening to Sufjan. It seems in general the artist’s album you start with always ends up sounding the strongest to you.

Seven Swans is mostly great, Age of Adz / the accompanying EP’s have some great tracks as well.

Long story short,

Michigan > Age of Az > Seven Swans >>>>>>>>>>> Illinois

Aenima is for sure their best work — but I’d take Undertow / Opiate over anything post Aenima.

That deerhunter set was beyond epic — my buddy and I still talk about it. But I thought Tool’s set was great as well. They are such a consistent live act, even if you’re not into them I think you’d have to try hard to not have a good time.

I had the same thought. One of the few “turns 20″ recently that has been worth clicking.

I wonder if that was the point? Because it definitely got to the point where people were gaming the system trying to get the lowest rated comment. “Any attention is good attention”, I guess.

Similar to Pearl Jam at Wrigley Field — of the 20 or so people I knew that were trying to get tickets, I was the only one to get in, and only options were 2 seats together, in the upper upper deck. Anything on the field was $1k+.

No point in going to these shows when you’re competing against the unwashed suburban masses. Let them have it.
