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

This week brought highly anticipated first listens to LPs by St. Vincent, Wilco, Neon Indian, and Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, and we spent a chunk of time arguing about their relative merits. Ultimately the only thing we all agreed upon is that Jeff Tweedy should join the Black Eyed Peas. Take it away, winners:

THIS WEEK’S 10 HIGHEST RATED COMMENTS

#10 TheWastelander | Sep 3rd Score:9

I’m sure this has been said, but props to the editors for doing this feature. It brought the comments section back in a major way after they became closed with the site redesign. That section was always one of my favorite parts of the old Stereogum site, so thanks Scott.

“Capitol City” might be the best song Randy Newman never wrote…

#7 trinity firearms | Sep 2nd Score:10

People call it tension, I call it repression. I feel like she needs to let loose and get a little messy. Even the parts that are attempting to , feel rigid and overly calculated. There’s also something incredibly cold about her voice. She’s clearly a talented person and songwriter, her music just doesn’t ever hit at any emotional core. It’s like looking at everything through a window.

#6 theduchessofthomyorke | Sep 2nd Score:11

I was in a crabby mood this week. Sorry all. Also, IRONICALLY my handle has no correlation to a love of Radiohead. It just sounded like a username that had to be made.

That Chris Trash is some kind of something.
Boy, this Chris Trash is all anybody’s ever talking about.
So sick and tired of hearing about how brilliant that Chris Trash is.
Overrated.

Connor Johnson | Sep 2nd Score:16

This sounds like a clever ruse to get more thumbs up out of some extreme reverse psychology… I fell for it. You manipulative sonofabitch.

#1 Chris Trash | Sep 2nd Score:20

Thanks Topknot, I really appreciate it, but now I feel overrated and one thing Stereogummers hate is things that are overrated. Let me be the first to start the backlash:

Chris Trash sucks, I saw him commenting In Yahoo OMG, mainstream a-hole.

Chris Trash unironically likes Uffie.

Chis Trash made a long pointless reply comment about himself, what an ego…. and so forth.
