ARE YOU NOW OR HAVE YOU EVER BEEN A POPTIMIST

#9  dansolo | Nov 10th Score:33

So many issues with that review. It felt very non-committal for them to give it the same score as “Visions.” I think it is a clear leap forward for Grimes, and so have most reviews. They obviously see it more as a lateral move. But why did they keep going on about how she needs to make songs for other artists? In what universe does “Easily” sound like a Kesha song? And in what universe is Kesha ever having a hit single again? Beyond that, they kind of punted on engaging with the substance of the album beyond the gender politics angle. Though they also mishandled that one: how do you get “casual misandry” from “I’m only a man / I do what I can”?

And like what does a girl have to do to get a 9+ around there? Joanna, Grimes, Bjork, Sleater-Kinney, Courtney Barnett, Holly Herndon – all 8.5-.87 scores. Am I crazy for thinking that every single one of those albums is at least as good as Jamie xx’s album? I mean “Loud Places” is probably my favorite song of the year but if you think “In Colour” is a more exciting pop/dance album than “Art Angels” you are a deeply boring person.

While having a strong opinion about the new Grimes album is probably the best way to get noticed here, I’ve chosen instead to go with a statement necklace.

I’m just disappointed it got the same score as fucking Tobias Jesso Jr.

#6  LeMonjello | Nov 12th Score:38

Also, it just sounds like an artist talking about art. Tom is being weirdly defensive, like Will insulted his way of life.

The pressure of leaving what will possibly be the first comment on a Grimes page is absolutely overwhelming

Obama is the 44th president.
If you assign numerical values to the letters, Obama = 33
44-33=11

Korn’s band name is an intentional misspelling of the word “corn” replacing the C with a K. K is the 11th letter in the alphabet

This award was presented in November, which is the 11th month.

That’s 3 11s

How deep sure it go

Doris Montgomery | Nov 6th Score:46

“But if you listen to Visions and Art Angels back-to-back, the effect is sort of like putting your glasses on in the morning and suddenly everything blurry comes into sharp focus.”

LOL Tom you wear glasses? Basic much?

JK. This is a great line and I may use it in life to sound smart. Not sure if I will credit you or not though.

#5  dan k | Nov 6th Score:-10

Could barely get through a second listen. Way too overproduced. Biggest letdown of the year by far.

#4  Tom Breihan | Nov 12th Score:-11

No, it’s that he can’t write and his words are a big confused jumble.

ikr nevermind opinions, they should implement a quota for female artists on p4k, only then would we have #equality and freedom from the seemingly endless tyranny of millennial males

He just came to the realization he’s gay? wtf? If the whole tenet of Gayness is that you are born gay then you should have realized it when you were a child. Ruined womens lives. Shit, I always thought he was a good dresser. am i gay? let me check. No.
