I don't know. Seems like they're all doing Jack Black impersonations. Something about it feels phony with all the wringing around and ironic air guitar posturing. Maybe I need to lighten up.

Treats is perfect. Haven't been too interested in anything since. Got my A machines on the table Got my B machines in the drawer

June 7, 2016 on Sleigh Bells – “Rule Number One”
As a huge Since I Left You fan, I'm pretty let down by this. I'm not digging the guest vocalists/rappers, and the hook is annoying as hell. Also, the My Favorite Things sample is just replaying the record exactly. They don't do anything interesting with it. I get that everyone will be excited about new music from these guys regardless but I'm not hearing what anyone's excited about. Perhaps I'm missing the cut and paste dance party vibe of their old stuff and this was never going to be that. I'm still very interested to hear the whole album.

Seriously, how is she not recording her phone conversations. There's no way something like this would be in writing if it's true.

April 4, 2016 on Kesha Offered “Freedom” From Sony If She Issues Public Apology
I had Wig out at Denko's as a kid copied on cassette from one of my skater friends. Used to love that tape. Listening to it now on Youtube for the first time in almost 30 years. Jesus I'm old.

The last four tracks of the proper album: Waves--> FML--> Real Friends--> Wolves is so strong. It might be my favorite stretch of Kanye songs on any of his albums. I love Real Friends. The last minute of FML is the highlight (pun intended) of the album. Just pure genius.

There's no Joy Division without "The Idiot."

March 23, 2016 on Iggy Pop Albums From Worst To Best
My daughter told me about the hashtag #sonysupportsrapists. She couldn't tell you about anything going on in the world but she now forever links the brand Sony with rape. The fact that a brand like Sony could be soiled to an entire young generation is no small thing. Somebody needs to realize that there's far more to lose from this than there is to gain by releasing a handful of Kesha albums over the next several years.

February 22, 2016 on Taylor Swift Donates $250,000 To Kesha
These guys must have really hated all the love and attention they got after Merriweather.

February 3, 2016 on Animal Collective – “Lying In The Grass”
Whenever I listen to it, the first few songs are great and I wonder why I don't like this album more. Then after a while it seems like it drags and drags and you're just waiting for the 2nd half of Impossible Soul.

I liked this project a lot more when they weren't selling it so hard. It should have been a free download at most and this nonsense of playing the songs live on the late night circuit is ridiculous.

Sort of pointless. First version was overlong and wasn't that great outside of a few tracks.

Gimme Some Salt is filler. Rest of the true songs are great although I'd guess some could call the short instrumental interludes filler.

Bon Iver will be remembered for Emma but nobody will care about the s/t album that ruled the internet was best of the year for everyone. Overhyped that album was.

I like The Stand Ins. I tend to forget about that or even lump it in with Stage Names. They're sort of co-albums I guess. (the album covers go together!) Those songs you listed are amazing. I Am Very Far is where they lost me. That album was a mess. It's been years since I listened to it but I recall it having some good songs but the production was just too much. Like Dave Fridmann on steroids.

September 9, 2015 on Okkervil River – “I’m In Love With Susan Smith” (Tom House Cover)
The Stage Names is every bit as good or better than their earlier albums. I'm with you on falling off after that though. Stage Names makes my top 10 of the 2000's though. It's a great, great album.

Teenage Dream was huge and had 5-6 #1's on it. Prism I agree was a bust. Roar was a big track but isn't that great of a song and the rest of the album is blah outside of Dark Horse which is perfect. I'm interested to see if she can release another mega album like Teenage Dream again.
