“Not to mention, painfully white”.

Yeah, because 4 blokes from a rural part of England ought to have sounded more like The Commodores, right? Jackass.

Really? Big Express? That is some serious dreck.

Other than #1, this list is shite.

10. Drums and Wire (perpetually overrated)
9. Apple Venus Vol. 1 (pretty good after sitting out a decade)
8. Nonsuch (all over the place; Moulding is in decline but Partridge still has some top-notch-ness)
7. Oranges and Lemons (some great moments, but a bit too late-eighties sounding overall)
5/6. The Dukes Compilation (Chips from the Chocolate Fireball; I just can’t separate them after 20 years)
4. Black Sea (their poppiest)
3. English Settlement (epic; as “XTC” as it gets)
2. Go2 (perpetually underrated; as out-there as anything Bowie/Brian was doing at the time)
1. Skylarking (outstanding; easily Moulding’s finest hour and Partridge’s songs are top-notch as well)

Also, not only is Big Express the worst XTC album, it might actually be one of the worst albums ever released by a band otherwise worth a damn.

It ain’t age, it’s money; or more specifically, having an opulent lifestyle to maintain. Pushing the musical envelope ain’t gonna pay for houses in Malibu.

The fact that so many writers felt the need to make the sharp distinction that none of the corporate creepiness/blandness of U2′s new album’s content and distribution in any way, shape or form applies to Beyonce’s last awesomely triumphant album begs a few questions?:

Does Beyonce have all music critics on the payroll at this point?

Or is singing her praises just a convenient catchall insurance policy against accusations of bias (How can I be sexist or racist if I love Beyonce?)?

Or is this some sort of mass delusion?

1). Homestly, this ain’t too fuckng bad.

2). I probably won’t ever listen to it again.

She’s got a long way to go to be as cool as her mom. I saw Jada at an Opeth gig in 2011.

Where’s the drop?

I kid, I kid!

After 13 years, this totally delivers the goods.

I know he had some wry things to say about Kid A back around 2000-01, and the thought of RDJ taking cues from Burial and Caribou makes me queasy.

Great post. Blur were just as derivative as Oasis, only in more of a winking kind of way that pleases the critics. They have their handful of good songs, but I’d take DM (or Morning Glory) over any Blur album from start to finish.
