Find Me On:
“Sadly, this energy was never captured fully on record….”
I’m not sure I could handle them being any more energetic than they are on their records, and I’m a fan. Also, Return to Central was the perfect way to go out. So much for distinguishing yourself as a music critic.
He seemed pretty nice at both shows I attended.
There is no such thing as an “emo-like theme.”
I never liked Live. They sucked then, and they suck now. Just because a rock album that was/is popular turns an age that is a nice, big, round number does not mean that album is worth commemorating with a think piece. You can always tell when Stereogum is short on ideas. There are plenty of lesser-known albums turning 20 this year that are ten times better than Throwing Copper. Will the 2014 Stereogum write about them? No, they probably won’t. Prove me wrong. I’ll be looking forward to hearing what you guys have to say about Built to Spill’s There’s Nothing Wrong With Love and Cherubs’ Heroin Man. I’m sure you know the latter, right?
Just wait until the clone starts getting all excited about writing songs. “Nah dude, somebody already wrote that.”
Not that I’m in my twenties, but what’s up with everyone in the National being old? Were they ever young?
That is not a picture of the person writing the posts. It’s a stock photo of an emo kid. I guess you haven’t been on the site long enough to know about Stereogum’s veteran jokester.
Remember when he was doing those Burger King commercials concurrently with the diabetes supplies commercials? Never have I applauded so heartily.
Nah dude, they’re going to spraypaint the vandal from head to toe.
