Comments from rockhouse

Weird, I thought track 3 was one of the only interesting songs on the album. I like her music but she really needs to pare things down a bit.

Look, full disclosure, I've been enjoying this album since it leaked yesterday. But I'm just a dude listening alone in his house. Posting about it to spread awareness, and then actually including a song from some tumblr stream is kind of fucked up.

Sauna's placement on this list is comically low. Phil's about to drop a goddamn masterpiece on your heads and y'all ain't even ready.

I'm just now realizing the reason I loved Thomas so much as a kid was the high-stakes train crashes. I feel like my whole life as come into focus.

Hate to be that guy, but Still Night was their third album. Spectrums is their fourth.

Based on the iTunes previews (which are gone now, shocker), this is one of the more accessible songs on the album. Think more 'Tomorrow, In a Year' than 'Silent Shout'. Definitely don't go in expecting anything poppy. Personally I think this song is amazing.

More bands should follow this model of album release. Start selling the vinyl at a show with absolutely no warning, wait a few hours, make official announcement saying it will be available everywhere in two weeks, watch everyone shit themselves. No fuss, no hyping, just great music.

Why is no one asking him the important questions, like what's going on with that new Volcano Choir album he mentioned a few months ago?

If anything from Shields deserves to be on this list, it's got to be Sun In Your Eyes. What an incredible closer.

Uh, the Place Lives is from Clear Moon, not Ocean Roar. Also both albums are excellent.

Man this song is great. Two albums and three singles in a year? I don't know if I can handle this.

I'm not going to pretend I understand my feelings toward Kitty Pryde, but I do know that I just listened to and enjoyed a remix of Call Me Maybe featuring a white teenage girl rapping over it, so that's certainly something.

I saw a midnight screening of Prometheus last night (LADIES), and I thought it was pretty fantastic. That said, I can definitely see why some people would dislike it. It leaves a lot to the imagination (and inevitable sequel) and the plot gets weaker and less coherent as time goes on. It's a very ambitious movie though, and it mostly pulls it off.

The last 30 seconds was, embarrassingly, one of the most poignant and beautiful representations of humanity's futile, lonely struggle against the universe I've ever witnessed. Like, for real.

I'm not understanding the Ann-shouldn't-be-there criticism, since I'm pretty sure they solved that like last season when they made her an employee of the health department or whatever. Remember? She has her own office and that grumpy office-mate? Or am I forgetting something and looking like a jerk?
