I think that it's a pretty deep comment, actually. Lots of weird things going on in that comment there.

This is a perfect happy medium between the crunch of Humbug and the soothing songs on Suck It And See.

Hahaha. This is pretty low-key for Biffy Clyro (in terms of getting weird with their covers) but when the weirdness drops during the solo it's pretty awesome.

Ignorant comment warning: How are they allowed to do sets like this in a cemetery? Isn't that...uncouth? Or is this cemetery just so old that no one really cares anymore? Don't know if I'd want The National crooning over my dead father's grave.

Tonight was the greatest ever; an awesome pump-up, before-you-hit-the-town record that I don't think many other records can emulate.

June 5, 2013 on Stereogum’s Top 25 Albums Of 2013 So Far
Actually, if Stereogum is looking for the big stars to shine, they should be pleased by the shining moments of Josh Homme, Troy, Dean, Michael, Grohl, and Castillo.

One of the best things that my friends and I have come to realize is that we all disagree on favorite songs. Mine are Vampyre, Missing and the title track. It seems like everyone has different favorites, which might hint at a solid album through and through.

I think this album is better than Songs For The Deaf and I find it strange that you focused on contributing artists.

Your downvotes are undeserved. Queens are a great live band to experience, but I would never show a live version of a song to a QotSA newbie before I showed them the recorded version. With that said, conversely, I think we should withhold judgment on these songs until we hear the recorded versions.

May 9, 2013 on Hear Queens Of The Stone Age Debut “I Sat By the Ocean” & “If I Had A Tail” On Belgian Radio
I agree. I prefer this dark, serious Josh to the kind of Sassy Bitch Josh from Sick Sick Sick, Misfit Love, I'm Designer, etc... Don't get me wrong, I like Sassy Bitch Josh; I just prefer him in this style.

The RIAA has found a way to make their job more relevant: creating GIF images of how irrelevant the RIAA is becoming.

It kind of does, now that you mention it, except 10x more random and insane.

...am I the only person who sees that this review is simply "0"? Is this some huge Stereogum inside joke that I'm missing out on?

March 19, 2013 on Vampire Weekend – “Diane Young” & “Step”
I'm starting to question my own musical taste because I don't particularly care for either song. I am clearly in the minority

Centipede Hz is fantastic! This is obviously a matter of opinion. I absolutely loved it, and this was the best I ever heard them live. I wish they had either Brother Sport of Today's Supernatural up, though, because those were the best ones from the set.

This record is a dud, sorry. I'm calling the emperor's new clothes on this one. The Eraser was excellent and had memorable melodies to it. This is self-indulgent nonsense. Everybody knows you never go full Aphex Twin. You went full Aphex Twin, Thom. Never go full Aphex Twin.

I hypothesize that rubberjohnny0829 will someday get a special place in Stereogum hearts, just as Steve Winwood got over at Videogum.
