Oh my god it does sound like "Ride My Llama". That is so strange.

Are you a joke account? Complaining about far left Jon Stewart in another thread, and using "artsy" as an insult in this one?

I imagine because there's a lot to be angry about, and when you're so immersed in the reactionary garbage of the news media it becomes quite overwhelming? I really don't know what it is you see as such lunatic left wing diatribes. Was there one in this segment? I don't think Jon Stewart is pretending anything. You talk like "further the liberal agenda" is some nefarious plot. Jon Stewart has opinions. He's pretty clear about them. What's wrong with someone having opinions and then making comedy around them? Who made this rule you cite that a nationally televised program shouldn't contain any "bias", otherwise known as, opinion? Since when? This worship of false neutrality and middle of the road is absurd. It results in an empty shell of media that gives equal footing to "both sides" no matter how ridiculous one side or the other is and no matter if there are more nuanced multiple sides. There is bias and opinion embedded in everything. We should be honest about this rather than pretend we can be neutral. The show of "neutrality" is a tacit endorsement of the status quo which is itself an opinion. Especially when you're part of an oppressed group that suffers as a result of the status quo.

The two songs from this album sound good and nice but I definitely prefer their more of dark proggy stuff like The Island from The Crane Wife, The Tain, or Hazards of Love. I have very similar feelings about Wilco. Too many sunny-day folk rock pop songs and not enough of the darker, weirder, more intense stuff that really defines them for me.

I like Spoon but I don't understand why so many people love this song. Listened a few times, but maybe I should listen some more...

Embryonic is my second favourite after Soft Bulletin. I also really like The Terror. It's hard to compare them because they're such different albums, but I think Embryonic is really fabulous and right up my alley. I agree with the poster below, cheap_suit that Yoshimi hasn't aged well. I don't listen to it much at all.

I think it's really underrated. At first I thought Congratulations was a huge disappointment. I then grew to love it. At first I thought the recent self titled album was a disappointment. I then grew to love it. It's not as good as Congratulations, but I do still love it and listen to it quite a bit.

This may be the most Dan Bejariest thing Dan Bejar has ever done. So on brand. I don't care, I don't care. Like he's going to sing in his music video. Please, he has shirt buttons to unbutton and places to lounge about in.

"The funhouse mirror Zeppelin songs" is a great way to put that, and I agree. Those are the standouts and the sort of pastiche country songs pull the album down. With that said, I've only listened a few times and those songs might reveal themselves to me to be beautiful over time. We'll see!

Poison is actually a song from the Rocket Juice and the Moon album, not his new album.

Nobody's forcing you to pay attention. How horrible that some people out there are just doing what they want to do and some other people really like it and give them enough money to continue.

Congratulations is an incredibly underrated album. It's definitely the better of the two, IMO. It's just very different and needs some time to sink in.

April 20, 2013 on MGMT – “Alien Days”
I can see the argument for it technically, but I think from a creative standpoint the album is how the artist defines it, which is likely without the bonus tracks that are being put on for marketing purposes. They're sold with the album. My point was pedantic though and it doesn't really matter. The bigger point is that The Terror sounds nothing like Sun Blows Up Today.

March 5, 2013 on The Flaming Lips – “Look… The Sun Is Rising”
FYI: Sun Blows Up Today is just a bonus track on the iTunes version/maybe other versions but isn't really part of the album so I wouldn't say it's the first single from the album. The rest of the album is (according to the band) not like Sun Blows Up Today at all.

March 5, 2013 on The Flaming Lips – “Look… The Sun Is Rising”
I really really hope it's part of another track on the album. That was the best part for me! Looking at the time of this video vs. the track time on iTunes it's unfortunately not part of this song.

I recall one of them saying it was more of a mixture of Embryonic and The Soft Bulletin, which sounds pretty much amazing to me. Yoshimi is nice, but is leagues away from the greatness of The Soft Bulletin. Everything since Embryonic has been okay but not great, but Embryonic was fantastic and an amazing turn for the band. I also definitely prefer Embryonic to Yoshimi, though Yoshimi is very enjoyable!

I'm not really feeling this song and hope that it's the stylistic outlier from the new material. Love Interruption doesn't bash you over the head with its greatness, but after listening to it a few times I really enjoyed it.

I think Broken Boy Soldiers was recorded in Brendan's attic, but I'm not positive. Anyway it's all just different opinion. I think Horehound has some solid songs but is inconsistent whereas Sea of Cowards is amazingly solid. To each their own.

January 30, 2012 on Jack White – “Love Interruption”
I disagree about The Dead Weather for sure. I think Sea of Cowards is a better album than Horehound. As for the Raconteurs, I think Broken Boy Soldiers is probably the better album but I wouldn't call Consolers of the Lonely to be garbage. No argument on ICP. That was highly distressing. I like this song. Jack stated on the Third Man Records Vault chat earlier today that "the song love interruption is not indicative of the sound of the entire album"

Why is the sound so consistently awful on SNL? They're a huge show that attracts huge artists. You'd think they could get this together.

Sounds like Neil Young on bad acid trip. At first I thought the vocal ruined some otherwise cool instrumentals, but by the end I found it strangely compelling. Listened a few more times.

Some music is better with headphones on since you can hear the nuances more and the nuances are important. A very melodic straight-forward rock record is maybe better blasting on speakers with the windows down, but this kind of record is way more subtle and the subtlety is what people are supposed to be listening for. Hence headphones allow you to hear that better. It's not some elitist bullshit making an excuse for an album. There's just some music that is way more suited to headphones (or really nice speakers in a quiet room.)

I'm pretty sure you just can't hear it. I can't think of any reason why some people would have it in their stream and others wouldn't. Your ears have probably lost the ability to hear that frequency.

March 24, 2010 on Broken Social Scene – “Forced To Love” & “All To All”
Calm down. I can accept that some people might not like Jack and that some people might not like Allison. That seems to be you. But to say that Jack white is "ruining music" is pretty farcical. I think despite what you may or may not think about Jack's music that it's pretty evident that he has a lot of respect for music and is making music that he and many others think is good, enjoyable and sometimes important. He does it for the right reasons and lots of people appreciate it. Nickelback is ruining music. Get your hyperbole right.

This album just keeps getting better. At first I was more into the album up to and including Melancholy Hill, but last night the second half really revealed itself to me, especially Cloud of Unknowing. Take some time to just sit and absorb that song without distractions and if you're in the right mood it'll be amazing. At least it was for me. Just a fantastic album overall. I have nothing but good things to say.
