My favorite “cover” of this song was done by some drunk dude at a karaoke bar in Portland. It was the day before easter and he changed the lyrics to be a song about Peeps. I guess that technically make it not a cover but it was well done and hilarious at the time.
Love seeing Napalm Death back at it. I never thought Utilitarian got enough love and it sounds like they are continuing their run of quality albums. Also thanks for the heads up on Cretin and The Crown. Really dug those two.
I loved Sorrow so much and although I really grew to like Foundations too it never surpassed Sorrow. Interesting choice for #1 and I can see the argument for it. This list and the conversation so far about what’s missing just shows what an amazing year for metal this is.
Speaking of long songs, this year probably had more albums with 8+ minute songs that I absolutely love than any other year. With Thou, Pallbearer, Usnea, Triptykon, Swans, YOB, etc. 2014 is the year of the long song for me.
That shit gave me chills. I could listen to Mike all day.
The White Stripes comparison is appropriate if only for how minimal this sounds compared to Arcade Fire. After being in a band with 10 or so members it sounds like he is enjoying the freedom of a simpler rock and roll setup.
It’s like she is trying to sound like M.I.A. circa Arular/Kala
After your top10/bottom 5 with the same comment moneyshot, maybe you need a longer refractory period.
Sooooo much beef! This place is a real meat market. Good thing I love hamburgers.
Great song, great video, great to see/hear Britt playing drums, and great to hear Kim continuing to make weird dark pop songs.
That was my first thought. Nicely done.
