Always appreciate the irony of any Gallagher accusing another band of being overrated.
I despise every atom of this prick and am enjoying the irony of the fact that it’s taken an industry as ridiculous as fashion to see that the man is not a hundredth as talented as he thinks he is. It’s like that crushing moment Stringer Bell realises that there’s a whole ‘nother level of power above him that he didn’t even contemplate. Schadenfreude is a beautiful thing.
I don’t even necessarily rate Busta that highly, but Kanye and Wayne don’t even deserve to breathe the same air as these two.
This is sickening. James Franco clearly mouthes the word “Nigga” on a couple of occasions. I for one am completely offended.
Seriously though, the worst thing about this video is that it meant I had to listen to this absolute pile of garbage song twice.
By the way, I only watched this crap coz someone sent me the Franco/Rogan parody and I thought I wouldn’t appreciate it without seeing this first, but how it can be any funnier than this rubbish I can’t imagine.
Wow! I just…..I mean…..wow. Is this what passes for genius these days? Now I’ve been hating on this moron for a long time now, to the point where I don’t even bother listening to a lot of his stuff because I just can’t process the claims of brilliance that are bestowed on him when put against the appalling rapping that comes out of his mouth. The whole “bad reputation/sad reputation/ mad reputation” bit? The “Can you remember where we first met? Okay, I can’t remember where we first met” bit? “Wanna fuck you on the sink, then make you something to drink”? I mean, is this a joke I’m not getting? This is some of the most awful rapping I’ve heard in a long time, and yes, that’s probably because I don’t listen to things like 2Chains and Rick Ross and shit like that who are probably even worse from the tiny bits I have heard, but how, under any definition of the word, no matter how loosely you’re using it, does this guy qualify as a genius?

Really thought Y.A.L.A. would be a shoe in for this list. I would have liked to see Bird Flu on there too, although I prefer the even crazier Damgroove Remix of that tune.
Sarcasm at it’s finest!
The thing I don’t understand about that Pitchfork review is that their main problem seems to be that some of the songs are a year old due to the release being put back. Does this mean that you can only listen to any album until the references on it become a bit dated? Like, if this album had been released a year ago they would have loved it but would no longer entertain listening to it now 12 months have passed? Weird.
I didn’t bother reading this article. Suffice to say that I’m on the side of whoever is against Robin Thicke in any situation, ever.
I agree. I love all their albums (with the exception of Neon Bible which I only love most of) but Suburbs is a borderline legendary album. All the songs work, the concept actually works which is a minor miracle, and it makes me feel and think things that most other music doesn’t.
Finally, something to ensure that January won’t suck this year.
The only way this will stop being album of the year is when it’s next year.
Sorry, that was meant to be a post, not a reply.
Yes, yes, I understand that commercially Kanye West is a big deal, but to see ATCQ lower on a bill than Kanye is just fucking depressing. Hip-hop sucks these days.
Suburbs is one of my favourite albums of this century. Gorgeous from front to back, and while this isn’t quite a Suburbs or Ready To Start it’s good enough to have me salivating like crazy.
I can’t really fault her, but I mean, it’s a Louis Vuitton fashion show. Surely she should have known that the crowd were going to be a pack of absolute douches.
The only thing Thicke about that guy is his waistline. Oh, and the fact that he’s thick, as in a bit dim.
The law of averages suggests that this band will do something wrong eventually, but it looks like it’s a good way off yet.
I have to agree with the general consensus. Love Bad Girls, love Bring The Noize, absolutely hate this.

Intimacy is my favourite album of theirs, although it might have something to do with the fact that I blasted it in my rented Toyota while barrelling around New Zealand for two months.
Still laughing at El-P’s running!
