If I could look like Shamir when I smoke, I'd take up smoking. That dude just looks straight up cool (it probably has more to do with how he already looks / carries himself than the cigarette though). But I'd probably look more like Mac, but dorkier, so nah.

YES to Dan Deacon. That album just flew under everyone's radar or something. It's killer.

As a lover of "OctaHate," I'm pretty let down by The Fool.

Ditto to all the comments here -- one of the great things about Foals is how consistently they evolve. This sounds like another great step. TLF and Holy Fire were both excellent; Foals is one of the best straight-up-rock bands working today if you ask me.

June 16, 2015 on Foals – “What Went Down”
Close to the Edge was the album that got me interested in music at the tender age of ten. It'll always be a special work for me and those three compositions are really embedded in my consciousness. It's brainy but so filled with feeling. Also very happy to see Magnification so high. It's pretty dorky, but those strings really add a lot.

Impeccable. This is my favorite Sufjan tune, period.

Totally agree. And I know this is a bold claim, but I think "The Beast and Dragon, Adored" is Spoon's best album opener.

This is a good pick, but it all about The Waterfall for me.

It just sounds like aggro-rock to me. :(

Am I the only one that does not like "Puffer?" Like at all? It makes me sad because I love Major Arcana, and "Raising the Skate" is so fucking awesome, but the aesthetic of "Puffer" just completely turns me off.

I've heard this whole album, and it's really fucking good. I didn't expect MMJ to be able to come back so strong, but they really bring it.

I'm not quite understanding the assertion that his rap abilities are somehow lesser to me. There are countless verses where dude raps his ass off. Sure, nothing bangs, and maybe you have to dig a little deeper to get to the right verses, but I think his technical talents as a rapper are totally on full display here.

Yep, I was straight speechless my first listen. I didn't have any specific expectations, but I definitely wasn't expecting this... It's incredible.
