OH FUCK YEAH. This song is TIGHT but DIRTY.
I moderately enjoyed Fear Fun, but this song makes me SO excited for the new album. That description letter is amazing.
I’m with you 100%. This song is really pretty and most of The King is Dead was pleasant, but I need more “The Island”s in my life! The Crane Wife is one of my favorite albums, period. By the time the story comes around in the last couple songs… chills, every time.
Why is Philip Selway’s solo output so underrated? His new album Weatherhouse has gotten little to no media attention and that’s a shame, because it’s gorgeous and lush and a great callback to 90′s-style Brit rock/pop. In my opinion.
I don’t really listen to movie soundtracks outside of the movie itself, but I’ll occasionally head back to the Social Network score. One of the most fascinating things about the score is that the main piano motif introduced after the opening bar scene comes back two other times during the movie, and each time, it was recorded in a different way to match the mood of the scene. It’s a perfect example of brilliant production style. It’s just a six-note melody, but it feels different each time you hear it. (It’s also incredibly gorgeous and evocative. Love that piano line.)
Didn’t think OK Go could top their last one. Man, what’ll they do next?
K, here are my thoughts. First off, Led Zeppelin is one of those bands whose rankings or lists I never agree with. For the record, my list would go:
1. Zep I
2. Zep III
3. Houses of the Holy
4. Zep IV
5. Physical Graffiti
6. Zep II
7. Out Door
However, I fully admit that for some reason I haven’t spent enough time with Physical Graffiti and will start doing that as soon as I finish this comment.
I love Zeppelin I for its POWER. The deluxe reissue bonus disc from earlier this year has an early, I-era live bootleg and these guys were fucking THRASHING. Also, my favorite song on here is (I think) the band’s most underrated song: “How Many More Times.” That climax? COME ON.
Zeppelin II I was never able to get into as much as everyone else. That said, “Bring It On Home” may be LZ’s best album closer.
III was actually the first album of theirs that I got into. Loved the acoustic detours and tuning tweaks. I’ve always loved “Bron-y-aur Stomp.”
IV… I mean, what can you say? “When the Levee Breaks” is still one of the most badass songs ever, decades later. Also, I guess a lot of people don’t like “The Battle of Evermore” (read that somewhere recently)? What the hell?
I’m getting tired now, and realizing this comment is pointlessly long, but I just think Led Zeppelin is the greatest rock band ever and I have very strong opinions about them.
(got you in the sights … of my…..guuuuuuuUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUN!!)
Commenting before I read. No matter what, my love for Led Zeppelin I is STRONG and it will NEVER CHANGE. Brb, gonna read now.
