I hope Corky’s soul’s face burns so badly that his soul is forced to piss soul urine onto its own face, not knowing that soul urine is basically kerosene, thus torching his ugly soul mug up even more.

I was hoping it would sound like Phoenix did it but that they created something unique. A band can release great songs that sound like them without sounding like the same song.

He was figuratively sucking off Gossamer…which means I can’t trust his opinion since.

That’s kinda what I was getting at in http://stereogum.com/1258391/phoenix-bankrupt-details/top-stories/comment-page-1/#comment-8020712

Pretty fun band…but not exactly unpredictable these days.

It was made of Tuscon, Scottsdale, and Tempe molecules.

Sorry but that is too broad/naive of a statement. There are plenty of people worse than what they’ve done because their worst thoughts/intentions haven’t materialized into actions yet.

Dondon Titty Soup,

I blow off Last Night, too…but Hard to Explain has a dope chorus. And the way it ends the song is great…abrupt and bratty without being too contrived.

I also liked that album. And I don’t dislike Wolfgang. I’ll add that this Corky character is an annoying asshole…

BUT

Because I’m a man of principle, I can’t just sit here and say that Wolfgang did not repeat a ton of musical ideas. Songs have measurable values and you don’t even have to be a musician to tell that Thomas regurgitates tiredly similar melodies (he loves putting minor third intervals a bunch of times in a vocal line) from one song to the next. I’m looking forward to hearing the new one and am hopeful…I’m not at all hating on Wolfgang – it was a fun album with a few pop gems – but facts are facts. There’s a difference between carrying consistent character from one song to another and having songs that just aren’t constructed uniquely from one another.

I’ll say the same about Bloc Party; Silent Alarm was a huuuuge deal for me but hearing Kele sing the same damn parts over and over (and boringly similar guitar parts) on the next albums was a real bummer. There are plenty of awesome artists that when you hear a song of theirs, you instantly recognize it’s them…but not necessarily because they repeat the same musical motives.

I come in peace. xo
