Wait. They free'd Earl? Oh, that's right, I stopped giving a shit in 2010, back when rape-rap stopped being cool.

Yeah, content by region is so passé, access should really be based on hipster cred.

Kanye has already hailed it as the greatest album ever and is already pissed at whomever inevitably beats it for album of the year.

Kanye's ego and incoherent babbling on TV was funny for the first five years or so, but it's getting kinda stale.

You got my hopes up for this typical late-2000s Weezer trash.

Elvis Costello also said that "Every Grain of Sand" was Dylan's best song. I prefer "Jokerman."

The Lewinsky scandal happened in 1998. Jeffrey Dahmer died in 1994. Meanwhile: http://rapgenius.com/search?q=%22Jeffrey+Dahmer%22 I get it though. Eminem's old. Great observation.

What do AIDS and foreclosed farms have to do with social injustice? > Pussy Riot is part of the music community HAHAHA, good one. I really loved their last album. The live show was amazing. Still rocking my Pussy Riot World Tour '06 t-shirt.

Injustices happen all over the world everyday. Only when the victims are edgy white chicks with neon leggings from American Apparel does the music community stand up and take notice.

I like how the title isn't " vote for the band you like", rather " vote for the band we like. Don't even worry about who the other bands are. You've got a stereotype to maintain." How about fuck you. Like I was gonna send Lol B to the Grammy's when snsd is on the list.

Ah, the classic "shitty music is good when an angsty teen does it." Newsflash: all angsty teens make shitty music.

> but he ends up just missing it, the spell broken when his mother calls him to bother him about bringing the car back, since she’s got to get to an appointment with the city. (...) During the chase, he’s once again on the phone with his mom... That's not what happened. He doesn't answer the phone in the first skit. His mother even tells his father that it's just his voicemail. It implies that something heavy is going on during the recording. That's not his father on "Backseat Freestyle" either. It's really cute that you music critics heard from a friend of friend that this album had a story and are struggle to figure out what it is. It's really not that difficult.

Piero Scaruffi was right: to be a classical critic, you have know everything there is to know about classical music; to be a jazz critic, you have to know everything there is to know about jazz; to be a rock critic, all you need is a beard. You can't really write about Bob Dylan if you don't know everything there is to know about folk, blues, rock-n-roll, etc. There's so many allusions and so much musical history in these tracks I wouldn't know where to begin. Tom Waits is probably the most generic comparison that could have possibly been made. "Rainy Day Woman #12 & 35" owes more to "Mannish Boy" than "Early Roman Kings" does. The Titanic is irrelevant? Gee, he should have made the song about Mark Zuckerburg, called it @bobdylan - #tempest and premiered it in a Google+ hangout. Maybe write some songs about woman's designer purses like the voice of our generation, Kanye West, does. Can't wait to see what he puts out when he's 70+ years old.
