This has gotta be one of the most over-covered songs in the history of music
Cymbals Eat Guitars – LOSE (this needs more love in the year-end lists).
DSU has gotta be the most under appreciated album of the year.
It was actually filmed in Nashville, but set in Xenia. That movie is so fucked up, I love it.
Can someone punch that mask off of Zomby’s face? I’m sick of the “enigmatic electronic producer” schtick. We get it, you’re mysterious.
FIDLAR’s gotta be on here somewhere. Such a fun record.
Deerhunter – Monomania
Youth Lagoon – Wondrous Bughouse
Ghostface Killah & Adrian Younge: – Twelve Reasons to Die
Wavves – Afraid of Heights
Take it for what it is. We are never going to get another Room on Fire or Is This It and we have to stop expecting it. I think this is a legitimately enjoyable album.
We were spoiled by literally ZERO filler in those first 2 albums (in my opinion), and now we analyze every Strokes song expecting perfection. I think this album gives me another 5-6 good Strokes songs, and 1-2 more that are listenable. I’ll take it.
There is no “worst song” on that album
Alright Strokes…are we gonna be good or bad? Can we decide already?
I also want to say, in their defense, I think they were fucked by the crazy hype their first album got. They actually DID live up to expectations with Room on Fire, but people shit on them for sounding like Is This It. They spent the next 2 albums trying to sound “different” and live up to the evolution the blogosphere expected of them, to mixed results at best.
We learned from our mistakes. We’re sorry, Strokes. Just go back to doing what you do best and we won’t complain.
