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.

January 25, 2010 on New Goldfrapp – “Rocket”
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.

November 6, 2009 on Owl City Pretty Much Admit Ripping Off Postal Service
One of my friends on Facebook was like "Is the guy from Owl City the same guy from the Postal Service?" There you go. But then again I think Chris Walla sounds like a watered down version of Ben Gibbard. I think they all come from the Northwest coast anyway. Maybe everybody from that area sings the same and makes electronic music.

I hope Littlemore didn't quit. :[ I don't get how Without You relates to the other videos. I love how they remixed it. Hopefully they release this version.

I think the world has long realized machismo sucks, so there's no point in showcasing how manly you are. I would think someone as androgynous as Alice Cooper would understand that since he basically proved that it's okay for a guy to wear eyeliner.

This is a staff list so accrues different members' interests, I'm sure. Besides, Pitchfork's musical taste isn't the end-all be-all and neither is Stereogum's. Make your own lists.

All the Michael Jackson haters should listen to "Childhood Theme" and give him the benefit of the doubt. While you're at it, read up on both molestation cases and you'll find that he was not found guilty on either. I'm sure many of you have been accused of something wrongfully and it stuck. It sucked, didn't it? Michael Jackson was a tortured soul and always looking for a proper childhood, which got him in trouble sometimes but I really think he was a good guy. Rest in peace indeed.
