I’ve never quite understood why people are ok with an album only being liked after a number of listens. Yes, having deeper layers revealed after the tenth listen keeps you hooked, and all the best songs definitely do that, but they ALSO bring you in that first time too. Saying “you’ve just gotta listen to it ten times, and then you’ll start to like it” is like saying “the first couple times you get beat up it just hurts, but if you keep doing it you’ll eventually enjoy it”

Animal Collective: So weird their music has an odor

Based on that comment, Im expecting AC to drop a three-hour think-piece that Rush Limbaugh believes to be an anti-Romney conspiracy

Wait…after reading that back, I still can’t put that past this band

Am I the only one who would kill to hear “Red Mosquito” live?

Fair point, but to be honest being able to properly interpret a song (make it your own) is just as impressive as doing the song yourself. Good examples include Frank Sinatra, Elvis, Ella Fitzgerald, Michael Jackson. Usher will never be a brilliant songwriter by himself, but for making these songs his own, its a surprisingly impressive record

First DMB gets metaphorically pooped on, now people are taking to the streets over John Mayer? Eben mind explaining your issue with John?

I’m sure this would probably cause the apocalypse, but considering how Stereogum has been alive and kicking for most of the 00s, would you (the mythical writers at SG) consider doing a counterlist?

You can recruit Scott, his DMB post obviously shows that he is completely immune to slander from the comments section

Do people just not acknowledge their first three albums?
