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.

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 was originally going to same something about how I knew which full album I would have preferred to hear, but that's actually a pretty amazing set-list.

May 11, 2016 on Pearl Jam Surprise Fans With Full Album Performance For The Third Time This Year
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.

All right. Which Weezer albums do i ignore and which ones do I need? I stopped after Pinkerton. So... there's a lot I missed out on.

I love Isaak's work - he has some genuinely fantastic records. This is one of his best songs. It always felt timeless to me.

This is true, yep. In fact, I recall early versions of the film clip that incorporated bits of the film.

I know they say drugs open your mind, but for me, it was this soundtrack and not drugs at all.

It's also worth pointing out that U2's album was also number one on Rolling Stone's reader poll of best albums. I get a certain amount of strange enjoyment out of that little detail.

December 30, 2015 on Guns N’ Roses Confirmed To Reunite For Coachella
Absolutely. That's easily one of the best songs he's done in ... I don't know how long. I already want to listen to it again. It's got a great hook, it's truly weird (the lyrics are bonkers - it's weird even without the video) and musically, it's fascinating. Can't wait for the album

December 14, 2015 on David Bowie – “★” (Blackstar) Video
A couple of days ago, if you'd asked me, I would have said I love this band. I had hoped they were reuniting, that he was sorting himself out. So very said. For what it's worth: 10. Vasoline 9. Piece of Pie 8. Pruno 7. Plush 6. Sex Type Thing 5. Still Remains 4. Down 3. Trippin 2. Big Empty 1. Interstate Love Song The first time I tried this it didn't work. At least, I don't think it did

I listened to Scream, several times, thinking, this SHOULD be great. It wasn't just dull or sub-par ... it was startlingly bad. Worst than Chinese Democracy.
