I bought TLOP, but I don't think you could call it a "traditional album sale". I pre-ordered the digital album for $10 when I bought a ticket for the movie theater stream of the MSG fashion show/album premiere. That Sunday, it was "released" on Tidal. Later on Sunday, Seetickets told me "we will be sending it to you as soon as possible". On Monday, Seetickets told me " the final version will be released in the next several days. We will send the album to you at this email address within 24 hours of its release". Later that Monday, Kanye told us " it will never be for sale... You can only get it on Tidal.". Then 6 weeks passed. Then I received the album. Via a single DL code. After which point he continued to update the album. I did not receive an updated code. Yup very "traditional"

So how does everyone feel about this new Shins album? It's gotta be the at least second best Broken Bells album

Great piece on one of my all-time favorites. Anyone looking to dive into his music, Calling Out of Context is a great place to start.

I'm starting to think he has serious mental health issues that need addressed. I was there, and in that brief appearance, he had a crying fit on Cudi's shoulder for several minutes, and less than 10 minutes later was yelling aggressively, and later laughing maniacally.

I don't hate apple music, I just can't subscribe to absolutely everything. Besides, what I really want to do with my $10 is just buy Frank's album.

This isn't the first time this song has been ripped off. Listen to "All I Ever Wanted" by Kelly Clarkson, it sounds even more like Camera than this Ford ripoff.

Also, the very ending of EVP is a total Arthur Russell reference.. and Dev even played the cello himself! I just love it.

Why doesn't it matter? I don't get why an album that isn't an enjoyable listen can be the best. Talking about the importance of music is still secondary to actually listening to it.

I'm not sure I understand why an album's importance or message has more weight than it's enjoyability. I've been listening to Rihanna's ANTI a lot lately, I really enjoy it. I'm almost never in the mood to listen to Blackstar. So yeah ANTI ranks higher for me.

I was at 2004 and 2011, so naturally my #1 set is Kanye West. I'm going next weekend, so I'm avoiding the stream, but the temptation to stream LCD anyways is strong.

I actually think that Thinking Out Loud will win Record of the Year. Say what you want about the song, but that is the best sounding recording out of those five, and that's what that category is about. I think The Weeknd track sounds the coolest, but Thinking Out Loud sounds big and clean and luxurious which is what grammy voters love

Agreed. Also, for what it's worth, it's Tuesday and I just now finally had the time to buy the Years & Years album that came out on Friday, because... I was busy all weekend, and I have time on Tuesdays to buy new music.

I love that you describe them as young. I saw them last year at TBD Fest, and when they came out to set up, they were noticeably older than any of the other bands I'd seen; they're in their 30s, but when they started playing, they put those younger bands to shame. They played with a youthful intensity that was unmatched. They attacked those songs with their whole bodies. Acetate was like, the high point of the whole festival.
