Hating the whole thing I would hope :p
Pardon the ignorance, but what’s the difference between ”Record of the year” and ”Song of the year”?
Mogwai know how to tear it up, heavy style. ”Batcat” is a great example. But I love when they can be haunting and poignant. I couldn’t imagine true Mogwai fans not being moved by this track. It’s a beauty. It’s an album I’m excited for!
Very 80′s ish with Twilight Zone overtones. I’m glad they chose this for a single. One of the best off a very great album.
His commentary on the Miley ‘Ray’ Cyruses of the pop world was very much on point.
It’s a shame. Mowgai perfected spacy post-rock in my book.
I bought their first album on tape cassette back in ’96 :) This is really good news.Dave Sardy is a good choice too. I do hope they keep the Moogs.
Yeezy also said (according to Pitchfork):
“We ain’t Jewish. We don’t got family that got money like that.” That’s classic stereotyping there, and really irresponsible. He should certainly apologise for that.
It may be minor in some regard, yes, but when you bring a whole persecuted population into a careless comment, then you have to pay the piper.
NIN made their best album since The Fragile. I think they highly warranted a spot, in my humble opinion.
Well, certainly some of my favourites on the list. Personally, I think Random Access Memories deserves number 1. I think it will truly be a landmark organic-EDM album in years to come. Deafhaven deserve their number 2 spot, so well done. Disappointing that Queens of the Stone Age didn’t make the list for their excellent …Like Clockwork. Ditto for Arctic Monekys AM. Oh well. Good list. Here’s to even greater music in 2014 :)
QOTSA-…Like Clockwork belongs in honorable mentions :)
Wow, only 1 comment? Come on peoples, this is Mogwai!
Man, this song is tight. Best Mogwai song since anything I’ve heard off of The Hawk is Howling or in some ways, Rock Action. The video doesn’t seem to have much rhyme or reason but works for what it is, very ominous. So far, a new Mogwai song favorite and I wouldn’t be surprised if the whole album proves to be a new Mogwai masterpiece based on this track and ”Remurdered”.
As a Mastodon fan, I sincerely doubt that there was a hint of racism in the shirt. Mastodon aren’t imbecilic to such a low brow degree. It can be debatable that the shirt isn’t in the best of taste, but it’s not racist. The band Dying Fetus has a shirt that says ”Rape your dog, kill your mother”. Be nice to hear some outcry on something like that, to be honest.
Talented gal for sure, but she just can’t be in the Pixies universe-only Kim can. They should retire the Pixies banner and preserve the legacy if Kim is replaced yet again.
Oh Johnny…your trolls are usually good, but this was just one of those times…a no-fly zone…you know?
The motherload! The list to end all lists! I’m pleasantly surprised. Great list and a strong case for the top 5 in that order. I was prepared to be horrified at the possible impeaching of Revolver at the hands of rock journalists, but the case for Sgt. Pepper is a great one. Well done Chris.
And that’s the sway it is :)
@Rubberjohnny, You cross the line from somewhat fun pet troll to keep on the board, to you’re completely disgusting-lose all respect for you- put on permanent ignore type of troll.
Saw his guilty plea live here in England. His crimes and mindset are unthinkably horrific. Prayers for the healing and future welfare of his victims and prayers that his punishment is justice duly served.
