Find Me On:
Second-to-last track is fucking killer! All in all this is head and shoulders above “The Weirdness,” wonder who produced this one.
The thought HAD to have crossed their minds – “So, one of the best bands of our generation is already using basically the same name, should we maybe pick a diff – ” “Shut up and play the drums.”
Man the writing on this site has been stellar lately.
Ah come on, you know you don’t believe that.
We are pavlovian slaves for the signature down-stroke sound. This is decent but way too short and not really that interesting. I actually prefer One Way Trigger.
Ladies and gentlemen… the whitest man in America.
This one goes into Self-titled/Madonna/Source Tags realm. Fucking fantastic.
Liking it, not loving it.
Some of the melodies, especially Avey’s stuff, are kind of too busy for their own good. I’m gonna need like twenty more listens. Percussion is awesome.
Hey Ya would have been my vote.
Of course she fucking is.
Dude read some history on the making of Sgt. Pepper’s. These guys were studio wizards and they were tripping the whole time. Read the “production” part of this wiki: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sgt._Pepper's_Lonely_Hearts_Club_Band
They just kept getting more out there and genius. Think of it this way – the beatles were as monumental to popular music as moving from a land line to a cell phone. Everything was just different afterwards.
What’s up with the $800 utility bill? Does she have a large scale growing operation in her basement?
You must be in musical theatre.
The record is growing on me, but you kind of need to adjust what you expect from a Rapture album. If they had said at the outset that this will be “a more mellow record, good for sitting at the beach,” it probably would have made a better first impression. That’s not their fault, obviously…
Flea is the fucking man.
Love the vocals but I miss the beats. Slow Motion still slays.
Seems like they are going bigger on this one. Sounds more stadium ready.
Get outside. Take a walk and have a slice of pizza.
I would love for you to back up any of this. Just one point. If you want to know how far music journalism has fallen, just read any Rolling Stone or Spin or NME review – the most hype oriented, ass-kissing, corporate payola publications out there. Pitchfork isn’t afraid to call a spade a spade. Rolling stone said Angles was their best record since Is this It. He apparently has never heard Room on Fire.
I agree man, I was hooked from the first listen. It’s like a haunted house record in some ways.
