I agree about Kendrick... I know it's hands down the "best" release this year, but there are several albums I "enjoyed" more this year. That's where I'm having trouble.

This was a total skip-over track for me on Queen of the Clouds. It's testament to how great the album is.

Yeah, Michael Jackson may have said nice things to him... but years of crystal meth abuse alters one's perception

Music could be also skewing younger since iTunes sales and YouTube streams are now the most accurate preliminary indicators of gauging a song being a hit or not.

November 26, 2015 on Adele’s 25 Breaks One-Week US Album Sales Record
I think Cobain would be more upset about Nirvana logo being repurposed as a $1500 luxury fashion statement than worrying about the merits of who's wearing it.

I don't understand why that strategy hasn't been implemented already. Like the window of a movie playing in theaters and being available for sale 3 months later... it just makes too much sense. If a fan wants to hear the album badly enough, they'll pay for it. The two times I've made special trips to Amoeba this year were for Bjork and Joanna Newsom.

The last generation had Celine Dion and Michael Bolton for this stuff. We shouldn't take for granted that it could be a LOT worse.

November 22, 2015 on Tobias Jesso Jr. Describes What It Was Like Writing Songs With Adele
fun little childhood anecdote that could be used anecdotally: My dad played the Tunnel of Love and Born in the USA records to death when I was little, and I'd just discovered music stores and buying my own music at the age of 9 in 1995. I saw "Ghost of Tom Joad" on cassette and immediately spent my allowance on it, but remembering as the first music purchase I really didn't understand and regretted buying. I remember trying to convince my dad to buy the cassette from me so I could go back to the store and buy Janet's "Design of a Decade" instead.

Anyone waiting on the Channel Orange follow up really needs to hear The Internet's "Ego Death" which isn't mentioned anywhere in this article... it really is one of the most pleasantly surprising albums I've heard this year. Captures that breezy early Neptunes vibe very well.

There needs to be a word for that feeling in the pit of your stomach that something's about to go down when watching viral vids like this.

This song really sneaks up on you. Casually put it on a playlist a few weeks ago, didn't think much of it... all of a sudden it's been in constant rotation in my head the past 3 days now.

November 16, 2015 on Ty Dolla $ign – “Saved” (Feat. E-40) Video
I was a kid from the evangelical movement of the 90's and share Chris' sentiment about Christian music. Still, among all the garbage PFRs and Plumbs and Sixpence None the Richers and Newsboys- I remember DC Talk's "Jesus Freak" towering above all the others. I'm thinking back to the hooks in songs like "Just Between You and Me" and "In the Light"... Though I probably wouldn't touch the album with a ten foot pole today, I think it'd be interesting to see an objective retrospective to see how it holds up today.

November 12, 2015 on The Justin Bieber-One Direction Race Is Too Close To Call
I wish I could rate country music objectively, but growing up gay in the south skews every opinion about anything heartland-related. And boy does Eric Church sound heartland. Thought I was making some progress earlier this year with Ashley Monroe's "The Blade" record and Zac Brown Band's "Loving You Easy", but Eric Church just made me realize those are actually pop records and I'm back at square one.

I kinda hope she withholds streaming for a few weeks- I'm very curious to see how high the ceiling for this beast is sales-wise.

OH, and my first exposure to rap was a kid on my first grade school bus. He had a copy of MC Hammer's "The Funky Headhunter" on cassette and explained to me which songs had curse words.

Great points made that I can use in the PET PEEVE conversations I seem to have all too often-- "they just don't make music like they used to."
