what the deuce is happening between 3:13 and 3:29? boof.
Kinda reminds me of Foo Fighters “Big Me” video..in a good way. Ariel rules!
“Doesn’t everyone else have time to go on tour and play experimental music to 20,000 who thought they paid $110 to hear their favorite songs? fuck soundgarden for giving the fans what they want. the world needs more selfish spoiled brats like me, who get to play their experiments in front of an unsuspecting crowd”
I think he was condemning soundgarden for releasing a new album in 2012,
but again…like, who the fuck cares? if people don’t like it then people don’t like it…it’s not threatening. I think he’s butt hurt that soundgarden were all able to come back as the original line up and keep shit going
and that cornell still has his hair. smashing pumpkins basically will NEVER be back as the original lineup for various reasons
there has been an obvious resurgence of 90s bands capitalizing on their vintage appeal with reunion tours and shit, and these tours sell out, so it’s definitely a viable operation, but I’m not going to cast any judgement past that observation.
This is a really great list; clearly very thought out and well written/selected. It really made me feel good about my favorite band, The Cure. I had a couple minor disagreements but nothing worth sharing. Overall, the choices were poignant and fair. I basically feel bad for the future generations of listeners who don’t really have bands like The Cure to rely on for on-going, borderline psychotic catalogues. I guess Ariel Pink will fill that role since no one else has the balls to go out on a limb and risk sounding crazy instead of always sounding “relevant” and “cool.” Either way, Robert Smith is The Cure, something that should be fairly apparent by now.
Into it. Artwork isn’t spectacular, but whatever…solid rock song.
I’m forced to assume this is a joke, otherwise it’s just embarrassing
Uh, I’d say it sounded like they fucking nailed it, on network TV…which often doesn’t go nearly as well for even seasoned veterans.
Time traveling amazing shit
Changing my mind with more listens…this song is really great. I guess comparing anything to “Round and Round” just isn’t fair anyway. I can’t wait to hear “Mature Themes” and this song is getting better with each listen.
Great track for sure, but still, sadly, wondering if a song like “Round and Round” can be topped. Keep in mind this is coming from someone who thinks that some of the songs from his earlier catalogue were already better than a song like “Round and Round,” but I think it’s fair to say that it’s a hard song to surpass.
