see what i mean?
compared to their previous albums, and especially their first two, this is absolutely pussified. not to say it’s bad. but i feel like if Ceremony the in 2008 met Ceremony in 2012, these new guys would get their asses beat.
wait why does this exist exactly?
does this have a b side?
if this is folk music, i have absolutely no idea what folk music is.
it was just a bad idea to use ebay. that’s all there is to it.
can he count as absent when he’s in ODDSAC?
this is a lot like A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall by Bob Dylan. a lot like it.
Coldplay suck, Taylor Swift sucks. no excuse.
i don’t know if commenting nine days late is a party foul or something, but Phil Collins, Tom Petty, and Weezer are pretty useless.
then you come to this site for the wrong reasons. there’re plenty of boring blogs you can read.
i actually used to love Cold War Kids, and i would attack you for saying they should tour with Jack Johnson if that weren’t the kind of thing i say all the time.
you used the wrong “its”. also, it doesn’t matter how much time she spent crafting it and designing it so that people would react a certain way. because in the end it’s a shitty cover. and sure part of being an artist is making something that might not be classically beautiful. but there’s a difference between something that’s so ugly it’s beautiful and something that just looks shitty, like the cover of Steely Dan’s Can’t Buy A Thrill. it’s just crap.
saying ‘There is a new (ish) design aesthetic heralded as “the new ugly.”‘ is not defense of this album cover. it’s just pointing out a classification that may apply to it. it doesn’t defend the cover, because it doesn’t say anything about how good the cover looks. you haven’t really made a point. other than that thing about music not being static anymore. well, itunes can’t use GIFs as album artwork, so even on the digital front we’re shit out of luck, huh?
honestly, this guy has become one of my favorite things about stereogum. i really hope he never leaves.
people need to start capitalizing The xx right.
Cee-Lo? since when is twilight funky?
shut up internet, Joanna Newsom is hot.
i love you, blogmaster.
is this song on something or does the lottery own it?
in twenty-five years we haven’t done any better than U2? anyone who feels that way really has no business writing this kind of list, i wouldn’t think.
but more importantly, fuck Blackberry sidebar ads. and if i remember correctly, “BlackBerry Loves U2″.
i’m gonna upvote this just out of solidarity for The Stone Roses.
this Terrible Love works as an opener. i like that this song has two different lives. it’s nice to see another side of this song.
for some reason i can’t get it to work anymore…
