Honestly, if they just replaced all of those synths with guitars then this would be a MUCH better song. Like, it has great bones, but the adornment is all wrong.

"Oldie" is one of my favorite jams of all time, but also the only OF song I really like. Earl's verse at the end is excellent and proves he's the genius that everyone says he is. But seriously, can we get Mike G some more guest spots?! I love that dude.

I loved Another Eternity and it's definitely in my top five albums of 2015. I think that if you listen to their two albums back to back you can hear a marked progression in the music. Another Eternity doesn't sound like much of a retread to me at all. I would have loved another Shrines, but I think they gave us much more than that.

Put Bone on just about any track and I'll listen to it.

Wow. This is really... I don't even know. It's been downhill since Silent Alarm, but I think I might be officially done with Bloc Party.

October 5, 2015 on Bloc Party – “The Love Within” & “The Good News”
It's okay at best. I listened to Zane Lowe's show last night and where I expected to hear insight about the music he was playing, it was mostly promotion for Apple Music. Maybe that'll change as time goes on, but it was annoying and disappointing. The Connect feature is weird. Especially when an artist like Nine Inch Nails essentially posts two albums of instrumentals and outtakes and it's not listed in the Albums list. If you don't know to check out the Connect area then you'd never know it was there. It's just kind of confusing. I went in trying to treat it as its own thing, but I can't help but compare it to Spotify, which just keeps getting better and better. I'll keep my Apple Music active for the three month trial, but it's unlikely that I'll renew it when my time is up.

The 2002 performance is surprisingly great, but the new one is super tight and Ryan sounds great.

>Spotify doesn’t allow for such stratification: All music offered on the service is available to all subscribers. This isn't quite true. There is content on Spotify that's only available to premium subscribers, but there's very little of it. So little that you're unlikely to notice.

This sounds like lifeless karaoke at best. The Roots are fine, but Dirks Bentley can't make it work. I know people were kind of down on Fleet Bear's cover of Corduroy, but this is so much worse. Part of me feels like Dirks could have done a lot better with one of the the slower songs, but then the other, smarter part of me just goes nahhhhhh.

I saw Elizabeth Mitchell this last year with my kids (3, 2 & 2) and they LOVED it. I kinda loved it too.
