Find Me On:
I know Angel Dust, and you my friend, ‘Motherfucker,’ are no Angel Dust.
Taylor: “I think I need some space. It’s not that I don’t like you and all, I mean you’ve given me a lot. You’re cute and all and I like your friesnds. Its, well…”
Spotify: But, I thought we had a good thing going on…?
Taylor: Listen, I want you to know that it’s not you, it’s me. I need to just spend some time alone for a while and reflect, ya know, do some self evaluating. I need to concentrate my attention on the fans. Ya know, take a long break.
Two day pass by…
Google: Yo Tay Tay…what up, girl? ;)
I’m not buyin’ the whole ‘throw shit against a wall’ shtick. This album is a precise effort to definitively capture that lo-fi angle, and for some I’m sure its auditory bliss. But, its an approach that, well, let’s say you’re drinking a beer that you’ve never had before. You may or may not like it, but at least its not flat.
His bloated ego and asinine rants have clearly damaged his rep. What’s ironic is all that attention he drew onto himself I bet was designed to create a “Hey, look at me over here, and oh yeah, did you know I have an album coming out?” Classic backfire.
Seriously, out of all these artists, ya couldn’t just take a fraction of time to create a new, refreshed song for the cause? Ya had to settle into a remake. It’s like taking on The Seven Samurai…get creative ya dunces!

I sure could use a Kendrick album drop right about now.
Is that picture of him while he was saying that? Because that would be pretty funny. Like, “Hey you don’t don’t wanna mess me me, I’m a scary punk-man with too much money, cuz ya know, I worked my ass off way before the internet had the ability to decide a mid level bands fate…GRRR.”
And, ya had Face value and Hello, I Must Be Going to boot as great fixes in between Genesis albums. Man, this whole recollection is totally stirring up some great memories…
Three Sides Live should not be included, or else amend your Talking Heads ‘Worst to Best list!’
Genesis is tough one merely due to the obvious lineup changes and subsequent drift into pop rock as they grew older, but its albums like Duke, Abacab and even Genesis for me. I dunno…I loved them in the 80′s and they never entirely abandoned their past at that time so it was a great mix. Ya had Home by the Sea, then the methodical pound of Second Home that reached back to the past, Man in the Corner mixing in with Dodo/Lurker. I liked that Genesis. Much respect to Lamb Lies, but as a kid growing up, those middle years pre-Invisible Touch (although I loved Domino) were fantastic.
You cannot stop evolution. You can disagree and support the cause at its core, and I don’t think anyone would disagree with your stand, but accessibility is the carrot here. Exposure breeds popularity and growth. You can stay as “old school” as you want but if there’s a coalition that can begin to even the playing field and at the same time gain a larger fan base, well then…that is progress.
