Loving the D-Plan getting the top spot here. The Dismemberment Plan is one of those acts where I just cannot for the life of me understand why they aren’t way more popular. Uncanney Valley wasn’t as good as their older material, but Emergency & I is one of the best albums I have ever heard, and probably the greatest album in terms of lyrics I have ever heard.
That’s fair. If the guy doesn’t think Smells Like Teen Spirit is among their best, then he shouldn’t have to put it up there. I was more reacting to the response seeming to dodge michael_’s initial claim, which rubbed me the wrong way for some reason.
Your entire argument against michael_’s claim is that you think the dude who wrote the article is super great at writing, which does not really address the claim at all. It’s perfectly reasonable to think, as michael put, that leaving off the most popular and iconic song is a move to get a reaction out of people and thus generate traffic, regardless of commenting.
The Miley Cyrus sociology class kinda confuses me. Like, I get her whole deal and it’s not really fascinating. I have no problem with the publicity stunts either. I just don’t really get why the whole “former child star goes BAD” or whatever is treated like this groundbreaking thing. She’s changing up her image. So what. Why is this the most revolutionary thing to hit the internet ever of all time?
Yeah this is true, though I can see both sides of it. On the one hand, if the guy is aware that prices are too high to sell a lot of certain records, why doesn’t he just buy less of those records? I know this will deplete his revenue, but might help with the net income he ends up with. On the other hand, if all the records are too highly priced then this becomes an issue for the records stores when nobody wants to drop $35 on some reissue of an album that would normally cost $20.
I know, I just about shit my pants when my friend sent me an article about it getting released on vinyl for RSD. It’s especially baffling that all of his other albums are pretty easily attainable on vinyl. I am with you on it being my most anticipated release. Gonna be at my local record shop when doors open on April 19th.
I am so excited for The Field’s From Here We Go Sublime finally getting released in full on vinyl. Been wanting that one for years.
A Weekend in the City gets a lot of unnecessary hate, it is a solid follow up to Silent Alarm. That being said, I cannot agree that it is the superior album, though “I Still Remember” is among the best songs they have ever written.
However, I think we can all join hands and agree that Intimacy is a steaming pile of garbage.

Listened to it this morning and it is excellent. Madlib’s production provides a very cohesive sound and Freddie Gibbs has a great flow and delivery. I liked Oxymoron and all but I think this is the hip hop album to beat so far in 2014.
