These guys are crazy great. Nonagon Infinity is truly brilliant and one of last year's best albums. That was their eighth album, btw - since 2012.

I saw Dylan play a couple of years ago, and it really hit me then just how much he doesn't care about anything anyone else thinks. The show was great, though, even if the songs were virtually unrecognisable.

March 29, 2017 on Bob Dylan To Pick Up His Nobel Prize This Weekend, Avoid Stockholm Lecture
He's genuinely great. It's hard getting into the 'Big' artists a long time into their career, cos certain songs of theirs are unavoidable and burnt into your mind. Like, try to miss Free Falling. You can't. So it sort of feels like you know his best stuff already. But with Petty, there's so much more.

Like everything he's done after the Tree of Life, I'll watch this but feel so bored and amazed at what I'm seeing at the same time. He's so frustrating. I love everything up to Tree .. then after that it was really hard to finish his movies. Knight of Cups was terribly dull and pointless.

March 14, 2017 on Song To Song Is Disappointing As Both A Musical And Personal Drama
Same. I struggled to finish it, something I'd never thought I'd say about a Malick film, even, after To The Wonder, which really wasn't great either.

Yup, same. Listened to This Is Happening and dismissed it ... then somehow stumbled over Sounds of Silver, and went, how the hell did I ditch this?!

Love the Waterboys! Brilliant, underrated. And he's still making good records as the Waterboys now, too. Modern Blues from 2015 is great.

March 10, 2017 on U2’s The Joshua Tree Is 30: We Ranked Its Tracks Worst To Best
Gah, Songs of Innocence ... dull, vapid and turgid. Even worse than Horizon, which is saying something. It's really interesting to read "little bit more inventive sonically", which I interpret as them admitting it was just bad.

February 18, 2017 on U2 Will Release New Version Of “Red Hill Mining Town,” Rework Songs Of Experience With Steve Lillywhite
Yep. It's ridiculous. But I wonder if they hand-picked those bands or if they were suggested, cos of the audience the 30th anniversary of JT would attract. Either way, it really shows how much they've changed. I'd go to the show - but I'd sure as hell miss the set by OneRepublic.

Great to see this band getting some good coverage. Their last album, Nonagon Infinity, was easily one of the best of 2016. Love it

I've not read it yet, but one of the things I loved so very much about Cohen was that he didn't really have a 'bad' album.

"Grizzled weirdo Tom Waits is currently embroiled in a legal battle with French circus performer Bartabas The Furious" does not at all sound like a joke when it involves Tom Waits.

There's a lot to unpack here, sort of but let's start with: "Realizing that Las Vegas ranks 49th from the top in school funding"...

1. The Ship Song (Live version) 2. Into Your Arms 3. Brompton Oratory 4. Loverman 5. (Are You) the One That I've Been Waiting For? But that's a super hard choice.

"Amazon’s Developing Headphones That Turn Off When Someone Calls Your Name": The exact opposite of what I want.

Well... PJ unpluggd doesn't exist, not in an official, MTV-released capacity. There is an unofficial bootleg of it, and I think there's a DVD of it, but the sound wasn't great, which might be why it wasn't released as Nirvana's was. MTV didn't release all the performances on CD. As for which one's better ... Nirvana was, I reckon. I'm a huge PJ fan but that Nirvana performance was astonishing. Yes, it took on a new resonance when his death, and it's probably artifically enhanced people's love of it, but it is still a remarkable album.

July 6, 2016 on Savages’ Jehnny Beth Responds To Sufjan Stevens’ Critique Of Their Album Cover
You've been downvoted a whole bunch for this, but you're basically right - there are brilliant moments on By The Way( esp) and Californication, but neither are brilliant albums. Where, Blood Sugar and Mother's Milk are fantastic, the whole way through. It's pretty remarkable the Blood Sugar manages to maintain that greatness across so many songs. I know this list is just nine Chili Pepper songs that don't suck, but One Hot Minute? Animal Bar? I mean, come on. I feel like this was written for people about 10 years younger than me. Sadly, that means I'm about two years off literally waving my fist and young folk on my lawn... And I don't get how grudging the whole tone is. If you like a band, just like em. Don't make it sound like you wish you didn't.

I love this album. I love Purple more, sure, but when I got this - the week it came out - I just loved that it wasn't Purple, that it was different. I got the whole wanna-be-Pearl-Jam thing, but at the time the kids didn't care. Not really. Not like it sounded they did.
