Comments from homesickalien

Album is fantastic...demands repeat listens before you fully buy in which is quite unique considering that on the surface its an R&B album at its core. But man, its got teeth.

It's all fun and games when there's money to be borrowed and investors to be suited....but once it gets political? Well, then my friend, you get put on sides, and Neil Young is an eco-minded soul these days and I can't imagine being associated in any capacity with Trump, politically, would bode well with any of Youngs crusades.

That "coach" was also charged with tripping a Miami Dolphin who was covering a punt return in 2010 and injured the player. Someone who is that much of an idiot/coward to do something like that needs to meet a kettlebell regardless of who is holding it.

This from Billboard: Meanwhile, Anthony offered his own rebuttal, keeping it diplomatic: "I am proud to say that my bass playing and vocals helped create our sound. I’ve always chosen to take the high road and stay out of the never-ending mudslinging, because I believe that it ultimately ends up hurting the Van Halen fans."

Colleen Green at 3? Ballsy. Fun album, but not the 3rd best of the year, so far, by a long shot.

I still think she should have remained above this wretched piece of shit and not tied even an inkling of the reality from his comments about her to the 'art' (although you can feel her teeth clenching as you read that), but she deserve to wield her pen as mighty a sword as she wants. I hope all of this continue to remove fans from his base. Then, someday, he'll be sitting on a stool in some Montgomery beer hall in front of 75 devoted followers whining about the trials of 'stardom' while he strums his broken stringed ukulele.

June 2, 2015 on Watch Jamie xx Perform “Loud Places” With A Choir On Le Grand Journal
I just returned to honeybear yesterday and it is so good...right after I felt the need to revisit Helplessness Blues which has got to be one for the ages... With that being said, we all just git blow away with this and Jamie xx, and if these aren't two of the best summer albums I don't know what is, or will be. I wish kendricks was more like this only dirtier. Surf is a fantastic listening experience and one that can't be hailed as an AOTY....but damn if it's nit something that deserves consrant replay. It just was so out of nowhere which makes the attraction so appealing. This guy has a future unlike frank ocean (who by the way will sneak up and make it's case by years end) I love this album because of the fact that it just shows you that rap can still innovate, conquer and create new paths for these young guys to exploit.

This is merely classic 'Mats and I for one would expect nothing less. We're talking about a band that, once upon a time, basically broke up in ChiTown....on stage. If they were just pulling, say for example, a Van Halen-like hits tour and just wanted to roll through cities to make a few bucks (hence the "whore our past" message), that'd be one thing, but I was getting the sense they were in this to accomplish something more than that (documentary. new material, etc) And, I'd think with their past and their unpredictable behavior at times, that's a Molotov cocktail just waiting to be internally lit. Let's not forget All Shook Down, people.

This plays out like some uncensored animated street film from Disney about you just bein, well, you regardless of the odds. I'd imagine the characters would be street dogs, pigeons....maybe a few police horses. OK, I'll stop... but feel free to add a storyline if feeling it with me. I immediately see them all singing along to 'Wanna Be Cool' down the streets of Harlem. In other words, this album is about the best surprise I've run into all year.

Valid points here, but I must say that if Kendrick and Drake are who is showing up on one of your tracks, its a good bet you're letting them take the song over and having no problem being upstaged. I mean, not like it's Kid n' Play collaborating here..

Listening to new Tame Impala in pieces as opposed to sum of its parts might be the most aggravating auditory experience. It's like hearing The Wall on random play. All I wanna do is highlight track one...and push play.

May 7, 2015 on Tame Impala – “Eventually”
Aside form so many things wrong with this entire read, the actual song is about as cookie-cutter Marley reggae as you can get, from the Jah Jah name drop in the title to the 'leaving Babylon with Zion on his side' references (which coming from someone who grew up in Brooklyn is less than credible, to say the least) Regardless, I liked it! Now where's my Kaya album...
