Hmm, not bad, not great. I really like Foals - I've been a fan since Antidotes and was blown away by TLF. Holy Fire had some really nice moments as well. However, I feel like Foals and Bloc Party are kind of the same, in that they're both great, had a cool style to begin with, tried getting into heavier rock, and it didn't really work for either of them. Foals pull it off a bit better than Bloc Party, but songs like this one and Inhaler just don't quite hit the mark. The angst comes off a bit superficial and the music is too well-produced. With that said, still eager to hear the new album.

Amaaaaazing video. The song might be one of her best as well. I wasn't as into her last album as a lot of people were, but this is pure fire.

Daniel Johns is incredibly talented. He's a pretty fascinating guy if you've followed him over the years. The fact that Silverchair made Frogstomp when they were 14 is fucking awesome. Sure, their 90's stuff isn't the most creative music in the world, but it was still good - everything they've ever made is good. Aerial Love still has to grow on me a bit, but it's great to hear his voice again (I also think that Daniel is a really underrated vocalist).

Really good interview. I like what Wes said about nu-metal being a time of experimentation. Go listen to Korn's first album again; the bagpipes, the down-tuned bass, some of the lyrical content, Jonathan's made-up scatman language.... it was a weird experiment and a melding of influences that connected with a lot of people, myself included. Nu-metal was trying new things; some of those things were jockish, and a lot of the lyrics were terrible, but hey, not everything needs to be high art. Same with 80's hair metal; it hasn't aged that well, and a lot of it was ridiculous, but it meant something to so many people that it shouldn't be discarded or laughed at. Who cares if hipsters don't think it's cool? Bottom line, Wes shouldn't feel ashamed of anything.

I listened to Slipknot's entire discography yesterday..... and Vol 3: The Subliminal Verses is actually pretty great. Just sayin'.

Some thoughts: - Welcome To New York is the worst song on the album. - I really wish that Shake It Off didn't have that obnoxious try-hard spoken/rap bridge; without it, it's actually a fantastic song and one of the best pop singles of the year. - I like that the album has a singular style and vision. It's a really cohesive piece of work that streams nicely from front to back. -I also like how Taylor could have very easily gone the trendy pop route (i.e. hip hop beats, guest rappers, kind of like Ariana's latest) but chose her own path instead. The lack of 'urban' influence in a 2014 pop album is refreshing, and that style wouldn't have worked for Taylor anyway. Overall, an enjoyable album. Nothing groundbreaking, but definitely solid.
