I kind of hate it when bands neglect the sound that made them popular on the sophomore album. It’s too soon to be doing a 180 on your sound, especially since we’re still trying to get to know your sound anyway. Then again, I haven’t heard anything from the new album nor do I know much about the “new” sound, so I’ll just have to wait and hear before I form an opinion.

But MGMT, look at Franz Ferdinand, the Killers and the Bravery. All less than stellar sophomores. Learn it, don’t live it.

I’ve listened to it twice. Going for a third. I think it’s safe to put a Facebook “like” on dis one.

Almost makes me want to put on leg warmers and bop around.

When Goldfrapp started out, they were very experimental and then delved into a couple of electronic albums. But with this album and the last, I’m glad they’re getting back to experimenting–even if it’s with different genres (or eras).

Wow. People are overly critical about this song.

It’s beautiful. I like the meaning.

I know the story of the new sound, so I appreciate it, I guess. Zach Rogue got slightly paralyzed for a while, realized that they’re previous records didn’t really make anyone move (dance) and so he sought to make movement.

They’re music will probably never sound like they’re previous records, or at least the guitars won’t. Zach had to change the way he plays guitar due to his injury.

Massive Attack should definitely be #1 for most prurient. The wooly vagina in the Flaming Lips vid scares me.

It was the worst of times, it was the best of times. That Reatard beef really pissed me off. (pun originally unintended but deemed intentional upon realization of what I just typed)

This video is goofy. And I don’t think they were aiming at making gold with it either, so I’m not taking it seriously.

I like vintage porn. I love cool music. But for some reason I don’t like them together. But I do get how the song and the content go together. Nice effort but I think I’ll pass.

Who’s the winner out of the Radiohead-Fiery Furnaces-Beck feud? Patch and Partch. Good for them.

Seriously, Owl City dude should be carving his own path not picking up someone else’s scraps. It doesn’t give him much cred as an artist. It’s like who are you without the obvious DCFC/Postal Service influence. Granted many recording artists have been influenced by someone but this is literally ripping their sound.
