this is cool i guess because vinyl sales are doing well and all that but does anybody else think it kind of sucks that it takes a stadium-sized, super-marketed bona fide fuckin rock star who just HAPPENS to have a soft spot for vinyl and a major obsession with being the first one to ever put crazy gimmicks onto a vinyl record to make this many first week vinyl sales? he's even like super proud that he's the FIRST ONE EVER to sell that many records in one week. megalomania man.

May 17, 2014 on Big K.R.I.T. – “MT. Olympus” Video
This is excellent. But I have to agree with the person above that this isn't reminiscent of Bon Iver just because of the layered vocoded harmonies. Imogen Heap completely dominated that game with "Hide and Seek" (well before Jason Derulo piggybacked) before Justin Vernon had started Bon Iver. Justin Vernon doesn't get to just lay claim to atmospheric harmony-laden pop music! And I'm sure he would agree, but the music writers are doing it for him.

February 25, 2014 on Coldplay – “Midnight”
I had a lot of fun reading these comments but am still just mostly excited about the new Fucked Up album rather than Michael finally getting banned. These comments can turn things, quick-like. Still though, someone with no kids commenting on parenting styles and even passive-aggressively threatening to call Social Services is pretty FUCKED UP. I won't even get into why marijuana shouldnt be considered a drug but needless to say, a dude who spends time in a vape bar getting high should not be viewed as some type of crack-smoking negligent ne'er-do-well. That's just inaccurate. Weed is great, and would probably make some idiots better parents.

this list could just be a re-arranged track listing of Twin Cinema and it would be better.

so he should shut up because he has family that has a decent amount of money? and not try to earn his own way doing what he is good at? youre an idiot. It's extremely admirable that he makes his own money. and you'd prefer him to function more like that asshat in LMFAO whos uncle is the founder of Motown Records. That's ridiculous.

I loved this album. Also I remember seeing/hearing The Black Keys for the first time because they opened for Beck on the tour for this album. That was a good night.

i love these lists. everyone gets bent out of shape about their favorite song not being included or too far down the list but forgets that this isnt a peoples choice awards or anything like that, its a music blog. the article gets everyone to start thinking about their own top 10 lists and if nothing else, made a lot of people throw on their Wilco records. its great! and personally i agree with the author about Jesus Etc and Ashes of American Flags being the best songs on YHF but I'd probably put I Am Trying... on this top 10 too.
