Find Me On:
I listened to Slipknot’s entire discography yesterday….. and Vol 3: The Subliminal Verses is actually pretty great.
The production on this album is incredible.
- 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.
You Belong With Avril is incredible!
Hmm, doesn’t sound too bad – definitely better than Welcome To New York.
Not gonna lie, guys….this song is really growing on me. Yes, it’s stale, but it kinda works regardless. The video is pure awful though.
Is it just me, or does Ariel Pink kind of look like Merrill Garbus from tune-yards?
I’m actually loving the new album. I like that it isn’t a carbon copy of their first album. I figured that this whole thing would be a cash grab and that they would just rip off their first album song for song, but they really stepped up their songwriting for this thing.
Holy shit, this is good!
I like that they didn’t put out a carbon copy of their debut. They’ve grown as songwriters, and the melodies are catchier than ever. I am really impressed.
This is a great idea for an article, so I applaud you guys for assembling the list!
I agree with a lot of your choices, but seeing Britney’s Piece of Me at number 20 instead of number 30 is pretty insulting to the videos that placed below her. The Boys of Summer? Losing My Religion? The art direction in those videos completely blows Piece of Me out of the water. I love Britney, but Piece of Me never even deserved a nomination. The fact that MTV gave her the win because they were proud of her for growing her hair back out and not being a complete disaster for the video is hilarious.
