I’m sorry but NIN is pretty much the definition of one guy making decisions on how an album is composed so, as much as I appreciate Kim and Soundgarden, this seems like a poor angle to attack anybody from.

Wait, aren’t these guys on tour with NINE INCH NAILS right now?

This may be the funniest collection of song titles I have ever read.

Wow I went to upvote you and accidentally clicked the wrong thumb. For the record, I spilled milk when I read that.

Right?? I haven’t been let down by a single album I’ve been looking forward to this year. Very rare.

The BBC recording of What Difference Does It Make is easily in my top 5 Smiths songs. Very respectable list.

Slaughter. Dammit. The word was “slaughter.”

But why would Sand People want to murder Jawas?

This is a hard one, but it has to be Revolver. That was the one that really got me hooked on the Beatles. I always liked Taxman for the gritty guitar solo but once I finally got to the pop turnarounds on And Your Bird Can Sing and the infectious psychedelia of Tomorrow Never knows, I was sold.

Foals are very steadily becoming my favorite band ever.

I probably wouldn’t appreciate the Flaming Lips as much as I do without having seen that film.

yeah, that’s always been a bit of a let down.

I thoroughly agree with this list except I would put Brighten The Corners between Slanted & Enchanted and Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain. It was when they played Starlings of the Slipstream halfway through their set at Sasquatch two years ago that I knew I was going to be listening to this band for a very long time to come. Then they played Fight This Generation and it REALLY hit, but I particularly remember being really moved by Starlings when I saw them.

Hm. Yeah i see what you mean. The whole thing has become just unfortunate.

I think her original thought was that it’d be a chance to have fun on stage with fans but she didn’t really fully think it through.

Is it actually a JOB, though? (In this instance, not being a musician in general)

I thought initially she was going for the whole charm of less than pro vibe?

If I knew how to play a horn even a bit, I’d want to do this. It just sounds fun. Music is supposed to be fun, remember?
