Run the Jewels – RTJ2
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!
dont see whats goofy about that song? and good to hear Heltfield finally escaping his stereotyped “vocal coach” singing!
dude its all on spotify!
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?
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.
woahh downloading music with a torrent file soooooo groundbreaking!
oh my, listening to Carissa and forgetting all this bullshit….
Looks like you guys missed a not less gorgeous early blank page
