LOL. To be fair, child, I didn’t call you “emo.” I called you a culturally insensitive dumb ass and I made fun of you for your foolish understanding of “political correctness.”
PS: This website is not only viewed by people who are currently in the US. Sorry if I forgot to add that. I think this is another blow to that ridiculously uneducated (and quite frankly, laughably homophobic) comment that you left.
My advice remains unchanged: go back to school.
Because the term “good” is subjective. What’s good to you may not be good to… ah fuck it. Why do I even bother with this elementary bullshit? Ask the next person you meet on the street. Maybe s/he will have more patience with these juvenile questions.
If I am to hazard a guess, I think it has something to do with the initial mystique surrounding her, the perception of DYI talent that goes with the story of Video Games, and the music blogs that went crazy over it. Plus, to be fair, there really is no one out there who is gravely similar to her at the moment if we are to consider the WHOLE package. So, you can just imagine the plus points the people who “found her” got in the Universal “coolness” gauge. Now, a number of those people, I think are being apologetic not in her defense but in the defense of their credibility as consumers, fans, reviewers, etc.
Perhaps you didn’t read the review properly. Here, let me repost what was written:
” Imagine what might’ve happened if Fiona Apple, the closest cultural antecedent for LDR’s first few singles, had emerged in the blanket-coverage internet age.”
To translate, there is no one out there who comes as close to LDR as far as comparisons are concerned. Does that mean that the two are gravely synonymous. Absolutely not. And that was never stated in the article. The writer stated that there were similarities but that’s about it.
I swear. Some people are so defensive about their favorites that they lose their grasp of the English vocabulary. Have a cigarette, child. Or do whatever it is that you do to chill the fuck out.
Honestly, I think that the biggest problem here is that majority of the good or at least unique sounding songs in the album have already been released online–Video Games, Born to Die, Blue Jeans, and Diet Mnt Dew. And considering the online traffic devoted to the woman, there is a big chance that the people who were overtaken by the hype surrounding the album have already heard of those songs. Ergo, when the album came out, there were no major surprises left; no substantial new material to make the album bearable other than a bunch of somewhat mediocre songs.

Actually, he can. He has the right to share an opinion; it’s pretty much like your right to be an idiot trying to go against another person’s preference. What are you, 12 or just permanently stuck in the 2000? Have fun going through puberty with that kind of juvenile mentality.
LOL. I do believe even MCR has abandoned the said haircut.
Ugh, children. First of all, it’s political correctness. Second of all, get offended “by.” Perhaps if you spent more time in school, you wouldn’t be such a culturally insensitive dumb ass. Or perhaps you’d at the very least know how to use your prepositions properly.
