I guess I needed the morning sob that this brought on.

Caught his show last night in Houston. He and his band are just locked in right now. So fucking good.

Agreed. And KOL tracks live are amazing as well.

I think they earned a victory lap for OK Computer.

I've seen this man and his fucking impeccable band about five(?) times since he toured with Paul Simon for Time Out of Mind. If Dylan comes to my town and I'm not there it means he outlived me.

"Carin" is one of my personal top 10 National songs. Alligator is so good. This new track is fuego.

I've easily watched the video for "Pure Comedy" 25 times now. What gives?

Scrolled down here to say pretty much the same thing. "Drown" is top 5 Pumpkins in my book. Also, "State of Love and Trust" is essential Pearl Jam.

That band absolutely smoked those two songs, especially "Call to Arms." Nice Rebel Alliance logo on that Telecaster too.

January 15, 2017 on Watch Sturgill Simpson Perform On Saturday Night Live
This comes the closest to how I reacted out of anything I've read here. Kept texting my friends about how I wasn't sure how I felt about using a political character to sing about a third of Hallelujah as some sort of tribute to both the genius of Cohen and somehow bring solace to people terrified of the next four years. I think it came from a good place, but was a bit off the mark for me to get the reaction they were going for, and it bordered on and possibly breached into the realm of bad taste. Goddamn Tribe was great.

Batshit crazy these days or not, dude can write a song. I thought this was lovely.

Elephant is definitely their best. The run from White Blood Cells through GBMS is pretty top notch.

August 11, 2016 on The White Stripes – “City Lights”
This is a pretty song and all but it's understandable how this got trimmed from Get Behind Me Satan. That album is pretty stellar.

He said he hadn't heard back from Joe Perry and a journalist from Billboard asked Steven Tyler if he'd be participating in their farewell tour? What an asshole that person is. I don't care how you feel about Aerosmith, that shit is real life. Have some integrity and empathy.

July 13, 2016 on Very Worried Steven Tyler Hasn’t Heard Back From Ailing Joe Perry
Dude, I just replied to someone else's comment with pretty much the same reaction. I mean, I had an older sister who was way into hair metal in the 80's so I was indoctrinated on Bon Jovi and Motley Crue, but I kinda figured that song was so iconic that basically everyone who has ever turned on a radio in their life knows the chorus to that song.

Right? "Take my hand and we'll take it elsewhere?" The fuck is that? Who doesn't know the chorus to that song?

I just don't buy that this band expected this album to be ill received.

Super excited to get this delivered tomorrow. That album kicks so much ass but the mix made it sound like its being played in a room down the hall or something.

Remember when "Blow Up The Outside World" was banned on radio stations after 9/11? People do ridiculous shit when they're scared.

May 23, 2016 on Down On The Upside Turns 20
This brought back so many memories from my teenage years. I can't lie, I owned Please Hammer Don't Hurt 'Em, but I quickly delved into better stuff. I still remember the looks my friend and I got blasting Fear of a Black Planet in the driveway while shooting hoops. Couple of white suburban kids listening to Chuck D rant about social injustice and racism. I think I was 13? Also, I kind of hoped to find Arrested Development in here somewhere, but I get that they aren't exactly representative of this write-up. "Tennessee" was a jam though. Also, don't even mess with Digital Underground.

May 19, 2016 on From Marky Mark To Humpty Hump: Remembering Hip-Hop’s Awkward Adolescence
You stated that their music was comparable to Che t-shirts and implied that it was imbued with disingenuous social and political commentaries in order to maximize sales. Hence, my use of the term sellout. Sorry if it doesn't fit your definition. At least that's what I took away from what you wrote. They quit because Zack quit. Morello has been extremely active since, musically and politically. I just grew up thinking this band sounded unlike anything else I had heard and they kicked ass as musicians. I agree w/ the William S. Burroughs fan on the music side. But hey man, you like what you like. Peace.

This is fantastic but I get the impression that this dude could churn out a song of this quality a day if he really wanted to. Looking forward to seeing him again in June. His live shows are phenomenal.

May 19, 2016 on Father John Misty – “Real Love Baby”
Well they aren't a nu-metal band for starters nor do they sound like one unless Zack's rapping evokes Fred Durst in your mind. I think you'd be in the minority on that though. And describing Zack's lyrics as sophomoric platitudes smacks of hyperbole. And the implication that they're really sellouts cashing in on the sociopolitical elements of their music...you do know that this band could easily continue to record and tour but they haven't, right?

If you are trying to lump RATM in with Korn, Linkin Park, and Limp Bizkit, I think you're fighting a losing battle homie.

Kinda losing my shit over this. If this country ever needed new Rage music, now is the time. Firing up Sleep Now in the Fire and cranking that shit.

You know, I wrote that without even considering it. Please allow me to revise. 1. Faithless Street (Mining Town? Hard Luck Story? I'm a Texas outlaw country boy, so...) 2. Stranger's Almanac 3. Honeybear 4. Heartbreaker 5. Fear Fun I can't really decide between Heartbreaker and Fear Fun. Music impacts you so differently given the timing of it in your life. I've probably listened to Fear Fun more so...I also like both Taylor's and Ryan's versions of 1989. I guess I'm not discerning enough when it comes to good songs by good artists.
