Find Me On:
Eddie, completely disagree about “The Suburbs (continued).” That track holds the thesis statement of the entire album: “If I could have it back, all the time that we wasted, I’d only waste it again.”
Chills. Every. Time.
Come on, universe. Give him a daughter while he’s still young.
This is stupidly good.
Damn, I love this band.
I’ve waited 21 years for this album, MIchael. You can be sure that MBV are going to get 16 bucks from me as soon as their site works again. But at this very second? I just want to listen to this shit.
So for right now, all I can say to you:
Now that it’s been three days, I guess I just should have told Kevin Shields this:
But seriously, Jesus rose from the dead in three days? We can’t get a My Bloody Valentine album in 21+ years?
I’ll believe it when I hear it this week. And even when/if I do hear it this week, I still probably won’t believe it.
Stereogum readers are apparently not Boosh fans. My apologies, friends.
My beef with the Mac is the same beef every right-thinking man has. They are BULLSHIT munchers.
Still on a champagne hangover from last night and that pitch-shifting makes me want to smother an old lady in a nursing home just so someone can be put out of their misery.
It’s Tommy, but you’re getting there, chief.
“z0mg hail 2 the theif is #3? u guyz r lyke srsly retarded. n the bens r so low wtf?”
Corban goes lukewarm on Coexist, but brands the new Ke$ha single “glorious.” Are you guys just messing with us at this point?
I fucked up big time.
Here’s the view that Brandon Flowers had while making this album:
Sorry for hitting the Top 5 by making fun of you, Stereogum. I still love you, but THIS IS AMERICA!
Corban, I think you’re missing something here. I think we’re all missing something here. Maybe we need to accept the possibility of a record so excellent we don’t understand it yet.
(My apologies. I can’t let Stereogum live that line down just yet.)
he’s just mad because obama prefers DRONE metal. am i right, guys?
wait, gotye has other songs?
Since I hit #4 with a reaction .gif, it only makes sense to celebrate the same way.
Gotta disagree. The Heart of the Nightlife always hinted at an unabashed pop song like this, but they never went all out. I dig it. It takes a lot to pull off a song like this without sounding cheesy. Also, you have to assume that this is just one taste of their new LP. I’m sure that those more ethereal and chill songs will be on there, too.
I’d have to say that these songs definitely sound cleaner. That’s the only way I can describe it. But though I’m a little initially underwhelmed, I DO like the track, so maybe I should just be happy that Jamie xx didn’t want to make a disco revival album.
