Comments from toothsome

Headline kind of misleading…I thought Maroon 5 music as a whole was totally banned from China and I was like…lucky.

This song is tremendous and is exciting me in the same bloodrush kinda way Viet Cong was some months back. Can’t wait, and will definitely be spending more time with the previous album.

July 14, 2015 on Q&A: Protomartyr On Their New Album The Agent Intellect + “Why Does It Shake?”

Pretty sure after reading this twice and going through all the comments, that Chuck is basically bemoaning what he sees as the loss of Cosby’s distinct cultural legacy as a result of the public response to these accusations. He’s saying that it is a unfortunate that all of the good stuff that came from Cosby’s work basically gets vaporized due to this situation.

I think he’s very confused, and it’s bad look because as Caitlin has tried to point out, no matter what his argument is, he is chiefly concerned with things that are not respect for the pain and injustice of the huge number of women who have come forward.

At the same time, it makes sense that someone who is part of a quickly shrinking older generation of black public figures with a serious cultural legacy, gets nervous when they see someone like Cosby go down in flames.

July 13, 2015 on Chuck D Defends Bill Cosby, Accuses Marvin Gaye Of Pedophilia

it’s funny cheapsuit, I actually get where you’re coming from because the first time you hear Drake doing some of this stuff you’re like “Uhh…this guy sounds kinda silly?” And like, couldn’t someone that’s a more gifted lyricist or musician do more with a similar concept. But actually who could that possibly be?

Yet somehow he ends up selling it by a certain point in the song and after like 2 – 3 listens you’re just like “FUCK YES THIS IS EVERYTHING”. He’s just a genius with these weird little earworm hooks. Eventually you realize the dude is just made of success.

Ian Cohen review is in…the backhanded panning is confirmed.

I mean while he makes some decent points re: lyrics and thematics per the P4K interview, is it really necessary to spend the whole review ceaselessly harping on this?

Anyone who has ever seen Grimes DJ before knows that this is what she does. When she played after Majical Cloudz at Glasslands whatever a month or two ago this is exactly what it was like.

yes foxygen is a crappy band name button after seeing them play at CMJ and talking to them after and then bumping into them again on the street in the LES I can say these dudes fucking rock on multiple levels and really deserve the success that is soon coming to them. Amazing live act, and really great songwriting.

Wow, I have yet to read anything that mentions Suddenly, which is easily one of the best and certainly most heartfelt things Rocky has ever done. Good work guys. At least someone in the comments mentioned Phoenix.

one of the best performances of this song I have seen, very impressive!

Come on. KOL is better than Pablo Honey, there is no question. And In Rainbows should be #3. I personally prefer Kid A to OKC but I think that’s sort of a coin toss.

October 25, 2012 on Radiohead Albums From Worst To Best

I don’t think the intention was to say that Veckatimest had skippable tracks (which it does not), but that there often was the impulse to skip around while listening to the album probably due to the fact that Two Weeks, Ready, Able, While You Wait etc are much more immediate and instantly gratifying than Cheerleader, Dory, Fine For Now etc…but anyone who spent good time with the record knows that all of those songs are incredibly artful.
