Meh. Would have been better as a full Beck record.
100% chance D’Angelo cancels last minute
Pretty fantastic! Although, Under Pressure is a little ambitious for a bar band. I grew up around dudes in bar bands and they rarely strayed beyond your basic Van Halen, AC/DC, Zeppelin, Kiss, Metallica territory.
In other news: Cranky old man is cranky, old.
The Nirvana performance was pretty disappointing. Joan Jett over-enunciated every word in ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’. Kim Gordon’s voice was completely shot and way off-key. Annie Clark was far too restrained, totally sucking the life out of ‘Lithium’. And Lorde was just a really bizarre choice. From her overly-affected vocal style to the ridiculous posturing, her whole performance was a joke.
I hope the afterparty at St. Vitus was better than this. Maybe they should have just had John McCauley front the whole set instead.
To be fair, Xscape is 87.5% garbage. But ‘Love Never Felt So Good’ is better than anything on this Black Keys record.
Funny, but the singer keeps shifting between ’80s-’90s era Kiedis and ’00s-’10s era Kiedis. Gotta pick one and stick with it.
their music is plenty boring
Credibility, self-respect, etc.
