No shade to Rihanna or this song, but having "most viewed" instead of "most commented" along the side is turning this into a pop fansite. BRING BACK "MOST COMMENTED"!!

March 27, 2015 on Rihanna – “Bitch Better Have My Money”
Apparently as a bonus this year, the festival organizers arranged to have 2 Saturdays that weekend so festival attendees have a day to chill before having to go to work on Monday! Thanks, Lolla!

That has to be a record for an album with as much experimentation as TPAB.

March 25, 2015 on Kendrick Lamar’s To Pimp A Butterfly Tops The Album Charts
Rap is greater than music??? I'm confused. Rap=music. If a EQUALS b then a cannot be greater or less than b. What are you really trying to say here, Tom?

March 17, 2015 on Premature Evaluation: Kendrick Lamar To Pimp A Butterfly
I think the problem is that when we see a hip 20 something losing himself to music and freaking out we're ok with it because that's what hip 20 somethings are supposed to do. He does the same thing now but it seems weird to us because middle aged men are supposed to be reserved and conscious of how their bodies are perceived. So when he stops worrying about what we think about what he's doing and just let's the music move his body, we get uncomfortable. This isn't me trying to say "Get over your preconceived notion of age! It's your own fault you're uncomfortable!" It's just an observation. It makes me kinda uncomfortable too. And it kinda sucks for middle aged men that society expects them to behave a certain way, but then, we really have no reason to feel bad for middle aged white men, so whatever.

March 13, 2015 on Out Of Control On Videotape: The 10 Best Radiohead Music Videos
I mean, I'll admit that I kind of dismissed it at first too. But when I came back to it several months after its release, I realized I'd been listening to it wrong. It's hard to explain but songs that seemed bland and mechanical at first suddenly seemed bristling with life and infectious grooves.

Really???? It's definitely a lesser RH album but it's easily better than Pablo Honey and arguably better than Amnesiac. I know people who rank it higher than Hail to the Thief as well. I wouldn't agree with them but I can see where they're coming from.

I can't believe this album even needs someone to defend it. It's definitely the kind of album that rewards/requires repeated listening, but then again, isn't every Radiohead album?

I'd like to take a moment to address the fact that this is the number one most viewed article on the site right now, but it only has 2 comments. Bjork is popular (and amazing) so I get it, but the other day the top article was some bullshit about Mumford & Sons. Is there a way we can get the "Most Commented" section back??? I feel like it gives a better representation of what articles/news items are being most read by regular 'Gum readers. That Mumford article was probably #1 just based off of rabid Mumford fans stumbling across this site. I also like to join in the conversation and seeing the most commented articles was a good way to do that.

Can we get the "Most Commented" option back?? This is in most viewed because Mumford has a gabillion fans and it's probably not regular 'gum readers generating the clicks. I go to that side bar to see which articles are generating buzz among 'gum readers, not which articles are about the most popular mainstream bands.

March 3, 2015 on Mumford & Sons Announce Electric Third Album Wilder Mind
Prediction: This is really just the most elaborate pre-release hype machine ever concocted. They'll do the auction and then surprise release the album anyway.

March 3, 2015 on Wu-Tang Clan’s Once Upon A Time In Shaolin Comes Out In 88 Years
The average 'gum reader is probably too young to have appreciated the Pixies in their heyday, but the average 'gum reader is probably still very aware of them and their influence. I'm 31 and I don't think I ever heard a Pixies song until I got to college and realized that Radiohead cited them as a huge influence. I think they said that playing after them at Lolla was like going on after The Beatles. This prompted me to go back and learn to love and appreciate the Pixies.

Yeah, I don't think we're alone in being perplexed by this. I can understand not liking his music but she says it as if it carries the same weight as something like "she's like a female Limp Bizkit." I can imagine why someone wouldn't like Chris Isaak (even though I do) but I can't imagine why someone would think of him as a cultural touchstone for terrible music. Besides, the dude's hilarious. All around likeable guy.

1. Sea Change 2. Midnite Vultures 3. Odelay 4. Morning Phase 5. Guero 6. I could honestly take or leave the rest of them.

February 19, 2015 on Beck Albums From Worst To Best
He can't sing, and he's only a decent rapper. The thing he does amazingly well, arguably better than anyone, is make beats. But even that is lackluster on this track. Unless the opener is just more of an intro and the rest of the album sounds different, I feel like this album is gonna be pretty bad.
