Must ask Billy what he thinks about The War on Drugs. We might get a nice duet with Sun Kil Moon that way?

It’s a great one. This is stupidly stubborn music, but damn this is good to hear. I pressed repeat several times.

November 17, 2014 on AC/DC – “Rock Or Bust”

It has a distinctive Pink Floyd sound (somehow a mix of The Wall palm-muted riffs and Meddle lap-steel guitar and Division Bell smooth-and-forgettable writing and producing) but it is not completely convincing in my modest opinion.

November 3, 2014 on Pink Floyd – “Allons-y (1)”

I learnt guitar with tabs of this album back in 1995. It was a kind of joke amongst musicians to plays solos like Kurt Cobain. But when you try to reproduce those, well it is not that easy actually. He had a pretty good blues feeling. I like to remember him as a guy playing songs, great songs, written by him or by others.

Pink Floyd Worst to Best is almost ready for two years now. Yet the author still cannot decide whether Division Bell or Momentary Lapse of Reason is the worst.

This one is pretty simple
For me it goes that way
1. I
2. II
3. III
4. IV
5. Not A Number
6. Not A Number
7. Not A Number
8. Not A Number
The sequence is diverging pretty much rapidly because too much drugs.

Listened to this RTJ2 album, then read the post, then read the comments.

I did the exact reverse steps for the Taylor Swift stuff.

I guess this is the difference between good beats and good buzz.

RTJ2 is some pretty incredible shit. And I press ‘repeat’ several times a day with “Early”.

October 28, 2014 on The War On Drugs: Mark Kozelek Is “Such A Douche”

Sorry I saw your comment after I posted mine below. I did the same. But in the end I ended up listening to “Welcome to New York” and “Out of the Woods”. That is, a perfectly bad song and a pretty good one. I am confused. I might have to read the post then. Still haven’t. What shall I do? Hell, why “Out of the Woods” was not sung by Chvrches? I am lost. I am lost. Taylor Swift you devil marketing product.

I hesitated between reading the post or reading the comments. Finally I read the comments. Hell of a ride!

Heck. This Youtube video kept on playing in my Google glasses automatically without me having anything to say. Almost got a car accident.

Ask Sun Kil Moon to write a song telling him to go and f**k himself

I had Sun Kil Moon on the phone and he thinks this is the whitest song from the whitest band with the whitest cover and the whitest guitar.

October 11, 2014 on Pink Floyd – “Louder Than Words”

This is the first Sun Kil Moon song I’ve heard so far. Shall I go fuck myself?

OH YEAH. An incredibly immediate pop song — with great depth, by the way.

Funny how no one talked about the cover. Well compared to the MMLP1 opus it is a pretty good metaphor of what Eminem has become. Eminem has disappeared, and his house is just worth $1. Detroit is just ruins, so let’s have fun in ruins. Setting apart the completely ridiculous lyrics and nauseous everything-phobia, it is quite fun to listen to Eminem having stripped off everything from his music to basically behaving like a clown in a circus.

This is really premature evaluation, the second half is still growing on you. What about balancing with mature evaluation, like, two months later — or one year later. Legendary albums not always appear so in the first place.

They should have waited for Arcade Fire’s Reflektor. WTF. This list is nonsense anyway.
