I've been treating the new Godspeed album like a pop single, playing it over and over again on loop. I love it. Commenter bikemail pointed out that the album is really just one song they've been playing live, but ho boy, it's one helluva gy!be song! It doesn't waste a second getting started and the drone passage in the middle is a perfectly paced breather for the grande finale. So happy they decided to put it out. Seeing as how it was a 10 year wait for the last one, it's really amazing to have new music from them in less than 3 years.

M Nels' dedication to subtlety is admirable. I would've kept that train rolling at least five more times.

All of the Jamie xx 12"s up to now have been a solid color with a different color 'x' stem. Makes sense he'd have all the colors collide on his first solo full length... titled "In Colour"

Interesting fact about his focusing on the syllables. In my sign language class in high school we had to sign a song. I chose "I Want It That Way" because it was slower and easier to sign. I guess another reason it was easier is because they really space out every syllable on that song. Fun times riding around town with my sister blaring that song, singing along, with me overly signing in the passenger seat. Good times. Impressive write-up M. Nels! Who would've thought Stereogum's resident metal man would be so infatuated with pop hits! Figured this would've been DeVille's department. Colour me impressed.

I'm not from NYC, but I saw NIN in Terminal 5 and it was amazing. The Horrors opened. They played "I'm Afraid of Americans". Peter Murphy came out to cover Joy Division's "Lost Souls". So my memory of T5 is really, really good.

Holy Fuck they did remove it! It used to have a hyperlink to Maroon 5's "This Love" in the original. While I'm at it, guys, news headline tomorrow: "Here's the Billy Joel song Action Bronson sampled on 'Mr. Wonderful'" thx ;) #311TRUTHNOW

I'm not knocking AUX cords, but there is something extremely comforting about turning off the car, not having to unplug anything before getting out, then knowing when you get back in, that song is going to start exactly where it left off without me having to do a damn thing other than turning on the ignition. Is that a problem AUX cord users have? They get in the car, start backing up, say, "Oh shit, Music!" Then they got to dig in their pocket for their phone, plug it in, scroll through to their music, have a little dilemma of, "Shit, should I listen to this or that?" Burned CDs for life. From my cold dead hands!

Even more proof that "The Week in Rap" feature is only a great thing for this site. Exquisite breakdown of EARL & Action Bronson's albums! Happy to see I'm not the only one enjoying both, despite them taking very different approaches. To anybody still burning CD-Rs: "I Don't Like Shit, I Don't Go Outside" & "Mr. Wonderful" both fit on one disc. Clocks in right at 79 minutes, which I'm sure is an album length everyone is used to by now thanks to Kendrick. Action & EARL complement each other like a yin-yang. No complaints about the state of rap OR music in 2015 over here!

For the record, Run The Jewels made the same promise. Maybe if you got a tat of a sunbathing cat doing the RTJ fists/paws you could get free Parquet Courts and RTJ shows for life all the while making a Meow The Jewels reference.

Then this: "if you can figure out the purpose of its inclusion you will have gotten further than me." Really? Dude's job is to review albums and he can't figure out the purpose of an instrumental PASSAGE in the penultimate slot of an album? DOES THIS GUY EVEN KNOW THE IMPORTANCE OF PENULTIMATE TRACKS?!?! Its purpose is to transition the listener from the body of the album to its conclusion. In this case, the phenomenal album closer "Easy Rider" and if dude-bro bothered to LISTEN to the track, you can hear the "Easy Rider" melody at the end of "The Passage" SETTING UP the grande finale! Dude-bro needs to stick with reviewing Mellowhype albums.

Look, I'm not going to act like I know which Billy Joel song is being sampled in "Brand New Car" because I don't, but I do want to know! But it's been documented that it IS a Billy Joel sample, yet dude is going to say it sounds like Maroon 5?? When, and I'm just spitballing here, it actually probably sounds more like whichever Billy Joel song he's sampling?? The fuck!?

Part of me feels like they threw it up to get that pre-order money. As far as surprise hip-hop albums are going, Drake has to be feeling pretty good about his release... and the fact he isn't on a record label that would apparently fuck up his next album release. As for Kanye, will his LP really be a surprise when it's "surprise" released? I feel like when you already know the album title it's not really a surprise... though I'm sure the headline here will read: "SURPRISE! "So Help Me God" Out Now!"
