Don't say stuff about Echo and the Bunnymen unless you go through their entire catalog to justify saying that "Bring on the Dancing Horses" is one of their best. I do like that song, but I think this does a disservice to the band for some unnecessary hyperbole on that track. I beg you to listen to "Ocean Rain". Or "Silver". Or "Killing Moon". Or "Lips Like Sugar" or "Back of Love" or "Do It Clean" but really- "Ocean Rain". OMD "If You Leave" is amazing and I give you that.

He writes tracklist with Sharpies which is great, but think of all the bleed through to the other sheets of paper in the pad. I have to admit that it sort of bothers me. Also the rampant misogyny.

I love the duet ones the best, and this is a duet one, and it is the best- excellent.

I want to say that I read the piece again, and I think that OK to think about things- this was a provocative and tough question. "Removed from the context of the Super Bowl, it’s in the eye of the beholder whether “Formation” celebrates or exploits the black woman who takes her dude to Red Lobster, carries hot sauce in her purse, and has her man buy her Jordans."

They got slagged so hard by so many for such dumb reasons. Check out their many old school late night perfs- most of them kill, though when you see them on Jon Stewart's MTV show it is like a nad punch because Jon Stew looks 22 and you know that he is not 22 now.

This take seems sort of hot. They can each do whatever they want- what is the point of judging their "activism"- they are humans and artists that also engage in activism. I don't really get this piece. Also, don't want to defend Bruno Mars in anyway, but he seems to be a consummate professional performer- what was amateurish about his performance? Bey was charged and on fire- why need to be further hyperbolic? Coldplay were bland and professional. Mars was expected and professional. Beyonce was electric due to content of her song and its explicit treatment of race, and professional.

Even though this is really Bono-y, I think what he said was well said, and I appreciate him saying it.

"Wait for Us" was a good track. I almost remember that I probably heard it on Stereogum maybe? It was from their 2012 album.

I agree with many of the other comments. This takes me back to my high school girlfriend. It was a weird situation. It was long distance and she lived in Canada. We drifted apart and I don't think I even have any pictures of us together.

I hate feeling so predictable but Do Ya, Don't Bring Me Down, and Turns to Stone are my fave ELO songs. Justin Timberlake could have killed with a cover of Don't Bring Me Down (maybe they are saving it for the N'SYNC reunion. My daughter's favorite song is the "No No" song (Don't Bring Me Down), but I got her to like Testament to Youth in Verse by New Pornographers, so she also requests THAT "No no no no" song.

I like this a lot. Dig sort of ruined their reputation, and they can't be mentioned at all without reference the film. This is a really nice track. Feel a tiny bit of Monkey House vibe in here. Come Down.., 13 Tales, and Monkey House are a trifecta that I think any band would generally be extremely proud of. Monkey House was a retro leaning band being too far ahead of the curve- Pfork gave that album a 3.3 remember. It is a great, extremely listenable album. The arc of their discog for me is: 1) 13 Tales (album 3) 2) Come Down (album 2) 3) Monkey House (album 4) 4) Dandys Rule OK (album 1) 5) Odditorium and the Warlords from Mars (album 5) ------ 6) This Machine (album 7) 7) Earth to the Dandy Warhols (I didn't get this one- ) They are worth listening to.

I like I think all of it except Babyface. Stay is the standout, Lemon is new and different. Numb is dated but Ok for that time. Dirty Day excellent.

January 4, 2016 on The Edge Says U2’s Next LP Is Coming Together Quickly, Compares It To Zooropa
bloc, it is good. I think it is more interesting that Achtung Baby for sure- AB is considered by many to be their classic, and all the songs are quite good if you are into them, but I'd say that Zooropa is their last interesting very good album. Pop might be interesting but I could never listen to it I found it boring. I really do love Zooropa.

Ok, guys. I just need to say for the record- I was thinking about exactly this two days ago because I listened to "Macchu Picchu" from Angles, which is one of my fave Strokes songs. There is no doubt in my mind that FIOE is the third best Strokes album- I have a lot to disagree with here from Michael, though I of course respect his opinion. In my personal Pitchfork I have Is This It as a 10.0, Room on Fire as a 9.5-9.7 and the critical wankery about that album was astounding. I really don't remember as much of an echo chamber of critical imposition of personal desire on why that album was disappointing. It was sort of scary in that it felt like maybe there was something in the water. It really was awful. It was backlash for the sake of backlash. You really could tell that the response completely f*cked them up for recording their third album, plus they have very difficult band dynamics. Well, I have FIOE as an 8.0. It doesn't kill for every single song, but it is very strong. YOLO, On The Other Side, Vision of Division, Ask Me Anything, Electricitscape, Fear of Sleep, 12 Minutes, Ize of the World- Ize of the World is amazing. Red Light. If Hawaii had been on there as a bookend for YOLO Angles has at least three great tunes, and I would stack Macchu Picchu with almost anything. I'd give that album a 7.2. Comedown Machine I just can't spend time with. If Phrazes for the Young were recorded as a Strokes album with Strokes sound, I'd have it as a 9. I think that FIOE is so tainted by preconceptions that it might be impossible to revisit for some- really- it is just so poisoned.

The entire VC album plays like a suite- and Death is the final movement. So good.

I love love love "My Girls"- I feel like "Summertime Clothes" was really amazing but somehow there was backlash against it for being too easily good or popular, and we settled into "My Girls" being the epic jam from that album because it seem more untouchable. If REALiTi is in that airspace, that is massive praise.

I'd replace Dead and Bloated with Wicked Garden, and put Plush at 11 to get everyone off my back.
