“i” had me really worried I wasn’t gonna like this album and that he had already peaked. This song has me beyond excited because now I think the best is yet to come from Kendrick, can’t wait for this album now!
Just listened to this finally, and all I got to say is… Charlie XCX is album of the week?!? Fuck you Stereogum.

Wouldn’t have expected Diddy to be the one to do it, but I’m glad someone has finally punched Drake. Nothing against the guy, there’s just something about him and his face that seems to merit a good punching.
I actually agree with him on both counts, but definitely don’t think he’d agree with my opinions on every Smashing Pumpkins album released after 1998…
My dad took me to see U2 when I was a kid. It was alright I guess.
I see St. Vincent at #49 and think I should maybe just stop reading now. Plus I’ve already given up all hope of Salad Days being on here because I figured its only chance would be to be passive aggressively included at #50.
… of songs that are forbidden to be covered ever again and “Creep” would be #1.
My favorite is that homeless dude, Mean Mr. Mustard or something, playing it at that radio station. That guy could really sing and his cover was a lot more heartfelt and genuine sounding than anything on here.
Also, I may be in the minority here but I really like “Creep” and think it’s a great song. Obviously it’s a completely different type of song than the ones that made Radiohead the greatest band in the world, but of all the radio rock hits of the 90′s, “Creep” is one of the only ones that almost all my friends will sing along to and react to if it comes on in a car or at a party. And that’s not nostalgia, we were all babies or toddlers when the song came out and most of my friends would have hard time naming another Radiohead song. I just think for whatever reason people can all connect to that song. The band may have more or less disowned it, but the rest of the world hasn’t. That said, there needs to be a list
