May 3, 2016 on Radiohead – “Burn The Witch” Video
I have seen Paul, bob, and the who live (I saw buffalo Springfield with Neil but the sound was way too quiet and I can't judge Neil on that). Paul was one of my favorite shows ever (yes I'm a huge Beatles guy) the who were great and bob was fine but he's just doesn't to his work justice at all anymore, fun show but he's singing just doesn't do anything anymore. I love bob and unfortunately I really love early bob and really enjoyed his voice before he started his tom waits impression and there's just to connection from that bob to current live bob whatsoever. Now on to the argument though! Ranking by font size I am not going to rank them by my favorite Artie's or even by best to worse live acts. You gotta rank by the prestige, the draw, and the exclusivity of the acts. This puts Rolling Stones at the top. Rolling Stones live is a huge draw and they didn't hit up the mainstream American festival circuit. They represent the questionsal epic concert for this audience. Up next Paul McCartney. If he's playing a festival he's a headliner and a huge huge headliner, his crowd will be huge he has massive combined appeal with mainstream and serious music lovers. Those should be the clearest in my opinion. Unfortunately the next cleverest choice is for bob Dylan to be at the bottom. Bob Dylan is of huge importance musically and the idea of him is bigger than most of these guys, but the idea of him isn't the same thing as the idea of one of his current concerts. Not only are his performance skills lacking, but that has become more of his reputation. That combined with fact that catching a bob Dylan show is pretty easy and that I've seen him billed lower on past festival lineups with much sillier acts then they above means hes accepted his role as lower billed artist. That leaves us with Niel the who and the roger waters in the middle. Now in my opinion the who puts on the best and most fun set of the three and as far as mainstream appeal the most hit filled set, but they only have two original members with the other members rotating too much to be accepted as a solidified touring line up. Also when I saw the who they played before the red hot chili peppers so unfortunately not putting their foot down and demanding they were the clear headliner at that line up has really cost them here. I LOVE YOU THEWHO BUT YOURE BILLED SECOND TO LAST IM SORRY. Now we have roger and Neil. This ones tricky to me. I think what roger has going against is the he's obviously not pink Floyd he's a guy from pink Floyd, but he's still elusive enough if an act to catch that it still makes Floyd fans feel special for catching him. Noel is easier to catch but Neil young is who you want to see and you're watching roger cause he represents Floyd. Neil's shows are pretty accessible, but he usually headlines festivals and he's a huge draw with older people who are not only excited to see him but love his shows. I think I give Neil the bid because he has some of the allure for an important artist like Dylan except with better held up live performance and because his solo appeal is more complete than most others on the list. SO THE ORDER GOES: Rolling Stones Paul McCartney Neil Young Roger Waters The Who Bob Dylan I wrote this on my phone and assume it's terrible to read

You know what they say, the album Clarity is the best album to listen to when coping with the traumatic experience of opening the cd casing for the album Clarity poorly.

I'm not saying these are the two best Jimmy Eat World songs, but between the sing a long pop songs that gained mainstream steam, I always wished The Sweetness took the lead between it and The Middle. I understand why The Middle won out with its baby you're firework message and video, but The Sweetness was so much more fun and more fun to sing a long to.

I wasn't on stereogum when 808s came out and wasn't really following the online consensus of the album so I can't really speak for a large sample size, but I do know that a lot of my peers felt like it was a crazy groundbreaking landmark album and all I can think was man you must not know what much of this production already existed in the songs these songs come from because I know this singing or those deep and beautiful lyrics to heartless aren't what you're losing your mind over.

So I'm the only person that thinks 808's is hands down his worst album? Like Pile of crap bad. I aint feeling the singing or whatever we are calling it and I just feel like a lot of the stuff people enjoy about the production is really just borrowed instead creatively incorporated, but also the worst songwriting and...vocals?

The main way I see that being true is if Kurt simply continued to become more miserable. In other words if they ended up not being friends it'd probably be more of a sad note of Kurt's condition then a critique of how Dave turned out.

To be fair she does say sower in the clip so you could have gotten away with it. Now using the term trainwreck in a Amy Schumer post without making more of a point out of it...I'm not so sure.
