So with Tidal, a few of "egoless" artists at the top get a piece of the action and get to refill their champagne flutes. Great. Lars Ulrich can finally rest easy fifteen years later. But until there's a way for average-Joe-indie to get in on the action, I don't see how this service is really for the musicians.

Still slightly more admirable than Taylor Swift threatening and suing all of her fan-artists out of existence.

This song doesn't NEED to be the song of the summer, but with blogs like Stereogum hyping it constantly (this is the 3rd article covering it so far) it will be. It's a self-fulfilling prophecy.

I think his previous 10.0 was unwarranted because to my ears, it was undeserving of the perfect score it received. People seem to fall on two sides of the fence with Kanye: thinking he's either God or an imbecile. While I definitely lean toward the latter, I would never say the man doesn't work hard - he hustles harder than almost anyone in the pop world right now. Does that mean what he's doing will have a lasting impression on music as a whole? We'll let history decide. What I find hard to understand is why his defenders are always so vigilant. Dude doesn't need you to be that way, he'll be mega-successful regardless. You guys are just feeding his insane ego and pumping air into his ever-inflating god-delusion (which might be your intention?) And by questioning people who don't buy into his act, you forget the basic rule of music: it's subjective. Kanye is a take it or leave it kind of pop star and I've chosen to leave it. Aside from a few key tracks on Late Registration (thanks to Jon Brion) I've never heard anything worth supporting.

I don't think he meant it as a race thing. It seems to me more like a he-acts-like-a-twelve-year-old-boy thing.

Midnite Vultures was an album I enjoyed in high school but it never came close to being a favorite of mine compared to many others in his discography... that is, until I began DJing at a roller rink. "Mixed Bizness" and "Sexx Laws" are now practically roller rink standards of mine. "Pressure Zone" is also fantastic, being the first song to ever make the sound of a samurai sword getting pulled out of its sheath sound sexy. On a lo-fi note, my vote goes to the inclusion of the Beck rarity "Totally Confused." Fantastic track with backup vox by That Dog.
