Same goes for Greg Allman and Cindy Lauper. The only ones who have cancelled seem to be Maroon 5, Springsteen, and Pearl Jam.

May 20, 2016 on Maroon 5 Cancel North Carolina Shows Over HB2
Hey, Person from NC Here Mumford and Sons and Jimmy Buffett actually did not cancel their performances. In fact M&S made a public statement saying they would still perform and give profits to charity. Just wanted to help clear that up.

Ok fuck you, making out in private IS a thousand times better.

I'm really looking forward to his next big career move as Man In A Smiling Whale Costume.

Yes but to be fair when was the last time anyone even wanted to go to SeaWorld?

Don't stagedive. Got kicked in the head at a Fucked Up concert by some right bastard who just disrupted the whole show. Just mosh. It's kind of weird that moshing at this point has become a safer, more welcome act than stagediving.

I would like to know what you mean by "overproduce".

May 1, 2014 on Watch The Black Keys Debut “Bullet In The Brain” At BBC’s Maida Vale Studios
I can understand not liking the new songs as much as the older ones but I think the amount of downright hatred towards this album/the EPs is extraordinary and kind of uncalled for. A guy who works at a record store near me hated it and said "there weren't any riffs on it". Were we listening to the same album? Hmm.

On a whim I searched for it last night on iTunes and picked up the song. I liked it a lot. That album cover, though...yeesh.

January 20, 2014 on Beck – “Blue Moon”
This minute long preview already makes up for the entire "The Only Place" album in my book.

February 27, 2013 on Preview Best Coast’s Record Store Day 7″ “Fear Of My Identity”
Wesley makes a good point: what if this album has the greatest music of their career and it's blanketed by this fucking terrifyingly bad album cover. We just don't know. I wouldn't put it past YYY to pull something like that.

The list is pretty good and well researched, except I would switch 1 and 2 around. "Tallahassee" is a masterpiece.

"Dr. Dee" is on this and not "Mr. M". Something's wrong here.

December 4, 2012 on Uncut’s 75 Best Albums Of 2012
I was kind of disappointed with "Tomorrow Morning" (it's weird to hear E sing about being happy), but this album, sonically, seems to be the perfect middle ground between albums like "Hombre Lobo" and "Tomorrow Morning". Really can't wait for the new album.

December 4, 2012 on Eels – “Peach Blossom” Video (Stereogum Premiere)
Very frustrated that I haven't seen either Lambchop's "Mr. M" and/or Matthew E. White's "Big Inner" on any lists so far. Both of those albums are incredible.

November 28, 2012 on MOJO’s Top 20 Albums Of 2012
I think what I like about this list is that even though it's "worst to best", the way the albums are being described make it sound more like "really good to really great".

These lists are getting more and more pointless by the week.

Great P.E., Tom. Pitchfork could learn a thing or two from you.

And Chris Hall, who the hell are you to tell me what bands I haven't heard of? That's ageism, my friend. It's also immature.

All I know is that I got on the guest list tomorrow night for her show, so no amount of pointless anger and poorly-thought out rants can bring me down.

And don't use "brah". I'm automatically not going to take anything you say beforehand seriously.

Maybe so, but don't think he didn't still use it on his resume to produce other stuff, brah.

Steve Albini should just go back to talking about how he produced "Surfer Rosa" and the good old days of Shellac (it's what he's good at) and leave musicians, "professional" or otherwise, alone to do as they wish.
