Hank Above Skies
I’d say, ok, the guy is really annoying as a rapper (even in Community, he was ok at first, but got annoying fast) but when you have to write the news, you keep opinion to yourself, or at least you try to !
it’s a pity she chose one of the weakest song of the album. Still a good performance (she seems a bit nervous though)
Greta Gerwig dancing on Afterlife with kids jumping like school is over, Win Butler mocking Kanye, Odd Future playing in a fake tiny club, Lena Dunham writing an Avicii video that looks just like a classic Girls episode (whinning egotistical unemployed middle class people).
God, is it a crime if I use the word “hipster party” this time ? Cause I got nothing better.
steal* a vinyl. Sorry, just wakin up =>
Maybe people would have backed Yannis if he didn’t sound like a douche since his first interview. But even if he was a nice guy, saying you should buy a vinyl and stop using spotify is like saying you should play music et stop listening to it.
That’s just insane/stupid nonsense.
Also, I use spotify, I buy vinyls, cds, and t shirts, and I wouldn’t buy more without the use of spotify.
Radiohead is not in the top ten, and Arctic Monkeys get a better place. This shit is just trolling.
wait, I checked with my opinion, he said “yes”
I assure you, If you speak french like I do, there’s already too much of her singing (her part in Joan Of Arc is a bit ridiculous but that’s the only “bad” track of the album for me)
Ok, so maybe Tom Cruise-related comparisons are better than Yeezus, but Ghost Protocol was crap. Now I’m gonna read the whole evaluation.
I’m kind of wondering if most of you were already convinced before listening to the thing, cause on first listens (4 exactly) I really think it’s their least interesting work to date. Not to say it’s shameful or shit, but I don’t feel the emotionnal impact I had with every other one. It’s missing something really, I think a big part of that is the lyrics which are often repetitive and lack depth, after a huge lyrics-based album (the suburbs).
Also, I’m missing guitars sometimes, not to say they don’t make great songs with electronics and synths (Afterlife, Reflektor, Here comes the night time), but I wish the only guitars we hear in this albums would be a bit more upfront, like the ones in Afterlife.
Anyway, I’m digging half of it right now, hope to like more after a few listens, but I already know it’s not the concept album I was hoping for (but hell, The Suburbs gave me exactly what I hoped for, can’t touch perfection twice …)
It’s part of the whole “Weird art-school project” thing. I admit it annoys me a bit, but hell, if the album is great, I don’t mind them touring under the “Reflektors” moniker. Also, “Normal Person” is bad ass, even though I still don’t know if the lyrics are ironic (cause Win criticizing art school ideology in The Suburbs and then saying “Attention they want you to be normal!” is kinda contradictory, isn’t it ?).
Yeah, I love to over-analyze lyrics, especially from this band.
I would pay for a vinyl compiling his demos. Hope it gets out before the end of his career cause even after listening to Age Of Adz a thousand times (yeah, it’s about that many) I appreciated this demo like little gem.
Just a little mistake in the article: it’s WILL not WIN who was interviewed and talked about the making of “Afterlife”.
Is there a less annoying band on earth ? Man these bad heavy metal guitars, this candy ass singing mixed with half ass rapping, and now they’ve got horns ! I can’t wait for the banjo solos on the next album.
The interview was funny but the fake song … meh (also, drums with no drummer ?)
This is gold. This single is the best thing I’ve heard this month so far.
porn spam ? I’m in !
just an example, Only by the night was pretty much mainstream pop-rock.
So, now, to defend themselves, indie websites must use “monogenre” to qualify mainstream music ? It’s all I can see in most of the names dropped in the article. Not sayin they’re all bad, but they all wanna be on radio.
So ok, “this new kings of leon is no mainstream bro’ it’s monogennrreee !”, I’ll try it.
Right, so you’re telling me he made his best albums when he was high as shit ? Fuck, now I gotta be an asshole and wish he stayed a junkie and play good music, or stay polite and wish he stays clean and just play boring synths on the next Strokes album. Albert, you monster :(
maybe we found the ultimate hipster-detector
totally ? a lot ? Half of 200% ?
And maybe people will hate it because they really don’t like it and have been following the band since the first album. I’m not hating it for now, I’m just disappointed that they still are in this state of mind where they just throw stuff in a tracklist like an album is just a bunch of tracks put together with no coherence (style-wise or production-wise for the most part). People here seem to like it very much, but I haven’t read much about the songs they like. I’d be interested …
well I should’ve said 10 cause there’s the really “vintage strokes” All the time
