Songs 2-7 on PI, “Frail and Bedazzled” through “Hello Kitty Kat” might be the single best block of alternative rock recorded in the 90′s. Plume and Hello might be my favorite ever Pumpkins tracks. So good…
And to think to Billy left off Drown & Glynis for arbitrary reasons…
It’s a damn shame the bloom fell off the rose.
This is Great! God bless Aretha!!!
All I want is a decent recording of “Let Me Give The World To You”..the greatest song SP never properly released. Exciting times…
Yoko is awesome. YLT is awesome. This song ruled. And some people are dumb…it’s sad really.
1. Wild Cub – “Thunder Clatter”
2. Jack White- “Lazaretto”
3. Spanish Gold- “Out in the Streets”
4. Real Estate- “Talking Backwards”
5. Tune Yards- “Water Fountain”
Really digging the new Spanish Gold record “South of Nowhere”. Also was curious why there was no love for new Jack White or Phantogram records…
I think the point of Arcade Fire’s rant is that technically anyone could be up there conducting a Daft Punk or DangerMaus set…the fact that their public personas are hidden behind masks renders this explicitly so. I like Daft Punk, and would pay to see them perform live, but I also have to take into account the possibility that it might not really be them behind their masks. There’s a lack of authenticity…
Just wanted to chime in and give props to “Pillars of Davidson” ..despite not even making your review, it’s easily the highlight of the album for me. It’s a weird thing for a “Grunge” band to try and write a Springsteen style anthem, and I thought Live pulled it off and then some…
Just wanted to give a shout out to the Red Album too…As a person who adores the first four Weezer albums, “Troublemaker’ might still be my favorite all time Weezer song. How’s that for arts & crafts???
