June 16, 2016 on 9 Red Hot Chili Peppers Songs That Don’t Suck
IMO One Hot Minute is their last very good album, totally does not deserve the bashing here and I think Navarro was a great feat. I feel they relied too much on Frusciante comeback and completely lost their identity, just becoming a radio-friendly pop--group, which is ok to like but is not what made the Peppers so great and particular until One Hot Minute, just another radio-oriented band... In any way very bad list.

Don't want to reinstate the debate since you made it clear that the column "black market" was clearly black metal orientated. However once again, there's hardly anything here to discover outside of the black/death/grindcore sphere. I understand that the exciting stuff probably fall into that genres now and probably it will be hard to do that monthly, but a quaterly column on other genres would be great. Just saying that cause I discover lots of great things metal wise through that column before it turned all black and a not so black market would be amazing for people like me and others who posted this month, for whom black and grind and such does not do it!

No gun control is not there to prevent terrorists with AK-47 bought and brought from who knows who and who knows where. Good luck stopping 4 lunatics armed to the teeth with handguns. Jesus...

"French rap in general has a disregard for staying on beat" How could you even come up with that shit? /"typical of most French rap — late-’90s leanings with a surprisingly well-chopped sample every now" Oh yeah our producers are so bad that french hip hop cuts were already used by US hip hop artists in the 90, all the way to SoFly & Nius producing cuts for Future now...this deserves a big F"""" you for ignorant and just disrespectful comments. WTF!

Thanks Aaron. But the skew is not only this month, see Alex count below of the genres reviewed this January (And I will add that the Doom you guys review is often a Doom with extremely aggro vocals). If nothing interesting happens in other genres so be it! It still feels that the team preference in the past months skews the reviews toward really violent genres to the detriment of others... Nope I don't have anything to mention, I'm an afficionado of your column and discover most of my metal here, hence my comment and disappointment over the last few months as BM does not do it for me! And, just can't believe there's nothing out there in the other genres that you guys missed because of your own preferences...

mm since the showrunner changed, this section is almost 95% black metal and grindcore... I know there is a lot of creativity in those genres at the moment, at the same time I feel that we're missing a lot of info on less aggressive material that we used to get in the past here. More diversity would be great!

Well honestly maybe pledgemusic is to blame.. really unsure of a company which is only based on making money from selling 100 dollars vinyls for an autograph

While I really like stereogum because they don't diss bands like weezer or the smashing because its the norm now, I think this review is overstated. Such contempt for a magical album like Adore is beyond comprehension for me, but so be it, its acknowledge in the review. While I think the album is very good and I was not expecting more from Corgan at this point, I would not say it is better than Oceania, but maybe? On the other hand it fails in comparison to Machina! Machina II is out of comparisons because it not close to being a finished product but come on, Machina I is far superior than this! Once again I like this album and surely Machina I has some flaws but I don't see a single track here as powerful or magical as lets say Stand inside your love or Age of Innocence just to name a few!

Its about Itunes or not itunes its about how this big corporate bands are pretending they are finding new ways to distribute music while they are mostly using that as a stand to sell more. I will be enclined to say Yorke intentions are less money-oriented than U2 but it remains that to me there is nothing new here, how distributing through torrent will make things different than say, distributing through bandcamp?

October 17, 2014 on The Next Radiohead Album May Get An Unconventional Release, Too
6$ for 8 songs = merely the price you would have paid on a itunes release, and selling regular copies on the side, I dont see any advance here,... even In Rainbows release was nothing new, the Smashing Pupmkins gave a free album on the net way before, to me its just disguised advertisement not really better than forcing your album into people's lifes like U2.
