Shut Up, Dude: This Week’s Best And Worst Comments

Back when Videogum (R.I.P.) was alive we sometimes did Meet Ups at bars so our commenters could make puns IRL and meet the bloggers who churn out content for them. They were fun! Guess what: We are gonna do that for Stereogum. Our first-ever official Meet Up. It’s next Saturday night (12/10) at Brooklyn’s Baby’s All Right during A Stereogum Christmas Show. There will be free Stereogum swag, and we can argue about the best albums of the year and who Stereopun is. James is gonna DJ. Also there will be a secret Santa before Allison Crutchfield’s headline set and I have the perfect gift for it. Buy a ticket here before it sells out because we are a family. Free beer will be awarded to anyone wearing a Carly Sleigh Jepsen sweater.

The Bruno Mars album has like twice as many good songs despite having half as many actual songs.

Car Seat Headrest falling out of the Top 10 is also a goddamn shame.

Also, decent list. Nice to see the ‘Gum righted their wrong and put Blackstar in the top 5, where it belongs. But taking Radiohead out is questionable. And I still think Lemonade is the most overrated album of the year. It’s a good album with some great songs — but # 1 good? Nuh uh.

Kind of in this vein but not a direct reply: Who’da thunk in 2011 that, 5 years later, Bruno Mars and the Weeknd would go (basically) head to head, and Bruno would come out on top in terms of quality?

I agree that Solange had a great album and a few others, but no, this has been a terrible year for music. Pretty much the last ten years has been shit.

Listen you dumb and deaf Cersei. I’m not telling black music is bad as you can tell and read. I’m telling this “trendy” crap in the top 10 it is completely rubbish. Don’t need to try to create a nazi image of me.

So, you can’t handle an opinion? Maybe you think a guy (Ocean) pressing one key in a vocoder synth is very avant-garde but guess what, it is TOTAL rubbish.

Dear Stereogum editors:

All this black music tribute is because Obama is leaving? Don’t get me wrong, I like Berry, Tosh, Simone and many others but this, come on. Worst top 10 ever.

As an Australian, I can assure everyone that our political leaders are as depressingly disappointing as anywhere else in the world. So much so we’ve have resorted to waterboarding for kicks…
