That was actually my first thought. It’s too clean, but also sounds like a shaky record.

“Whether you love it, hate it, or simply don’t know what to make of it, Tyranny represents a fascinating new chapter for one of the most talented songwriters of his generation.”

It’s between love and hate, for me.

I’m on your side. All personalities/labels/etc etc aside, I’m still spinning Attack on Memory at least once a week, but I this album hasn’t hooked me for the last 2 weeks it’s been with me.

The songs don’t hit me as hard as AoM, and the turns from fast to slow feel a bit tactless. While I can’t get through AoM without hitting repeat for at least 2 songs, I’ve been taking breaks on this one, hoping my previous bias wouldn’t get to me. It hasn’t worked.

Then again, it took me like a year to realize how great AoM was, so maybe that’ll happen here too.

P.S. Is my “AoM” abbreviation annoying anybody?

This chemical does not exist. That is all.

February 18, 2014 on Fujiya & Miyagi – “Tetrahydrofolic Acid”

Gotta agree with Ben on this one. I was just trying to hang out on the grass at Sasquatch last year, and Imagine Dragons had the main stage for ONE AND A HALF HOURS after Azealia Banks unsurprisingly cancelled.

I was also really impressed with how good their live sound was. They had all the big drums and a lot of good guitar work that you don’t hear on the record. Afterwards, I gave the record a chance, and I was really disappointed. Maybe they’ll bloom into a fantastic jam band, but my money’s on them going the way of shit generic “rock” pop.

You mean “message”, not “massage”.

I’ve always thought of indie rock as a genre with an ever-changing palette of sounds, instrumentation, and styles because, like, “indie music” tends to be the new stuff.

Bands get popular; it happens. It seems as though you want “indie” to only define the stuff you listened to in your college days. The only newer bands I heard you positively name drop were those that played “classicist forms” (oh yeah, except Taylor Swift…dude).

Gotta be honest, when you guys mostly cover the newest hip-hop acts, metal, and tabloid-esque news, I get the feeling you’re just not looking hard enough.

This sounds like an even more emotive take on DeYarmond Edison. I can’t think of anything wrong with that.

Thisalbum would make for the MOST enjoyable elevator ride in my entire life.

I think Daft Punk tried to sum up this album with the Giorgio clip, “There was no pre-conception of what to do.”

This would be so much more effective as a less fancy x-y plot with all the different technologies chronologically overlaid
