Is it just me or does "My Church" have a strong Jenny Lewis vibe?

June 23, 2016 on Country Catch-Up: Rating The Genre’s Most Popular Albums Of 2016 So Far
Growing up in Louisville, there's a legendary, almost holy reverence around Jim James in that area. He embodies the offbeat southern charm of the city. Can't wait for a new solo album - his first is terribly underrated.

This is the only song on 25 that sounds anything like summer... I think they're on point with releasing this one

May 22, 2016 on YG – “Why You Always Hatin’?” (Feat. Drake & Kamaiyah)
I was always of the mindset that Carmen's signature song was "Who's in the House?" Like that scene from Jesus Camp...

YESSSS now it's possible to experience Bey for less than 200 dollars in LA (fingers crossed)

I agree that we shouldn't jump to conclusions here until letting the album sink in a bit. Drake emphasized in his interview with Zane Lowe that the Views is a grower, and seems more into the idea of the listener "not getting" the music the first few times around than ever. One of my favorite Drake songs is "The Resistance" off of Thank Me Later and that one was an initial skip-over for months.

Doesn't that album sales total include iTunes album purchases? I doubt brick and mortars happened to be stocked to the brim with Prince CDs...

I know this isn't really the place for No Doubt to be taken seriously... but Return of Saturn had favorite-album-ever status for me a few months my freshman year of high school. I voted for that shit on TRL every damn day. Still think "Bathwater" is their best song.

ooo this is fun.... mine might be a little unconventional: 1. Rude Boy 2. Pour it Up 3. Umbrella 4. Nobody's Business 5. Man Down 6. Kiss it Better 7. Raining Men 8. Birthday Cake 9. What's My Name 10. Cheers (Drink to that) I think the fact that I'm so tired of "We Found Love" and "Only Girl (In the World)" and my aversion to anything EDM skews my judgement.

March 29, 2016 on Watch Joanna Newsom Sing With Amber Coffman & Robin Pecknold, Stage Impromptu Q&A In LA
So happy I was there for this- it was an astounding show. During the opening act, I kept whispering to the friend I was with- "It's Robin whats-his-face from Fleet Foxes, it's gotta be!" The people in the row in back of us started asking us what we thought too, then a song later a guy from the audience shouts "I miss your beard!" The audience starts buzzing... it was the a-ha! moment for everyone, and he goes into the only Fleet Foxes cover of the show. Joanna also answered questions from the audience while tuning her harp- the hummingbird is her favorite animal, the daphne her favorite flower, and "hippies don't screw in lightbulbs, hippies screw in dirty sleeping bags!" What a night.

This could be a fun game... other albums that could be considered "cred" albums: U2 - Achtung Baby, MGMT- Congratulations, Fleetwood Mac - Tusk, Nico- The Marble Index, Eminem- Relapse/Recovery (though still not a fan) hell maybe even Ray Lamontagne's Ouroboros as a very recent example
