God fucking yes Hercules. I don't care that he actually dropped it late last year, it was on "I'm Up" so bring it back out for some air dammit.

It's VERY difficult for me to single out just one song on JEFFERY. It's "Swizz Beatz" for me because Young Thug chanting "love, love love love love..." will likely never leave my head and I'm totally fine with that. Guwop & Webbie my deep cut faves though.

But what about cool artwork AND lyrics!?!? Only reason I bring up the lyrics is because Radiohead has a history of including them with their albums. So I thought it odd with to not have them with this release.

Great idea for the pairings! Also reminding me of D'Angelo's Prince tribute. Speaking of late night, Parquet Courts feat. Bun B was hands down my favorite. Can't wait for that version of "Captive of the Sun" to drop on vinyl in February.

The song "Dear Tommy" was released back in September. Album still not out. Google the "Dear Tommy" post and you'll quickly see why I remember...

I have love for it. "Modern Soul" was the sneak attack song that knocked me upside the head late this year. It's a dense album, but it hits those highs consistently throughout.

I mean, it's NICE packaging. The images are very cool and rainbow swirly. I'm just talking about the normal vinyl version, not sure if they count deluxe editions like the big ass AMSP package. I mean, they didn't even put the lyrics in the AMSP packaging.

But yeah, looks like it did drop mid-December of 2015. If it's an issue, replace it with "I Can't Give Everything Away"

This comment, albeit brief, was a rollercoaster of emotions for me. First, the frustrating realization that bloc's still an idiot. Second, the quizzical observation that he admits I bested him. Thirdly, the amusing remembrance that bloc knows he's an idiot. Truly the greatest commenter we have around here.

The "Human Performance" vinyl packaging was very good! It had the liner notes stapled to the inside gate fold so it felt like a big book! Bon Iver's "22, A Million" packaging was good too, but come on... Bowie's "Blackstar" apparently still has a mysterious facet that nobody has figured out! We need to accept the possibility of a record's packaging so excellent we don't understand it yet.

Cohen's album wouldn't qualify as it was released after the late September cut off date. (I'm pretty sure that's the Grammy cut-off date)

He's just mad that the only p4k writer to give him higher than 7.0 is now a Stereogum writer. Conversely, a former Stereogum writer gave J Cole a 6.0 as a writer for p4k. J Cole Salty.

December 2, 2016 on J. Cole’s “False Prophets” Appears To Be A Kanye West Diss
I took inthedeadofknight's advice and went to see this movie last night. The performances alone are worth the price of admission. Knowing that a lot of the songs were performed live in the same room makes "Skeleton Tree" all the more impressive. Also I didn't realize that Warren is the main man holding The Bad Seeds together (coming from Nick himself). I noticed he played a bunch of instruments on the liner notes of the vinyl, but seeing it in action was impressive. The most moving part for me to witness was near the end during the song "Skeleton Tree" and Nick's in the middle of the room emoting with his arms as he sings. At this point, Nick had talked about making songs that do not alienate people, which is why he avoided direct narrative about the trauma his family experienced. So watching him sing the outro, "And it's alright now," I noticed an extremely brief smile stretch across Nick's face. It was like he was believing his words and that even despite his trauma, things would be alright. But then just as fast as the smile appeared, his face contorted and became solemn, like he snapped back to reality that, no, it won't be alright. That moment to me was the climax of the movie. It's incredibly subtle, but said more about the trauma he experienced than anything he attempted to say to describe it in the documentary. He said himself that when he tries to describe the even it comes out like bullshit. But in that moment during "Skeleton Tree" was when I fully understood the grief he's still going through. That moment alone makes this a must watch.

Originally when it was posted to Spotify, it was called "No, My Name is Jeffery" with a shorter version of "Floyd Mayweather" Then the album name changed to JEFFERY and "Floyd Mayweather" got longer. I think they added a guest verse.
