One of the all time greats. Still undecided between this and Downward Spiral being my favorite NIN record. Put a gun to my head and I'd probably go with this.

Every album’s got some bangers, and the second one is great all the way through.

Apparently, while everyone took time out of their day to crap on a perfectly fine Clairo performance, this high school graduation level nonsense is right up everyone’s alley...because it name-checks Pavement...?

Unfortunately, no one can be told what The Matrix is. You'll have to see it for yourself.

I’d take an album’s worth of this if it happened to be on offer.

To fix this messy situation of Carters, we need the help of the greatest Carter of them all! Someone who answered a country's call and provided unity and leadership to a people in a time of turmoil. I am speaking, of course, of the great John Carter of Mars.

If you shuffle the letters of "vegan" around, then remove the "e", then add a bunch of extra letters, then what you end up with is the word "vagina".

There's a simple algorithm that can answer this very question. You start with the number of years Stereogum has been covering Carly Rae Jepsen and then you combine that with nothing because there's your answer.

I'm glad somebody's keeping track of boob ratio as compared to the mutant lady from Total Recall.

This is the best track on Charli and the only track that 100% delivers on the experimental futurism I was hoping for. Put out an album of tunes like this, "Lucky" and the Pop2 version of "Track 10" and you've got the pop concept album I crave. Sky and Chris aside, Charli has too many intrusive features and the oversexed dancehall bangers get a little embarrassing to listen to for a nerd like me.

I didn't become a famous, Fleet Foxes loving mumble rapper without knowing a thing or two about the fine arts.

Alex G records for me are loose collections of songs. Some of them are the best songs I've ever heard, while others are nigh-unlistenable hokum. I will stomach the hokum because the good ones are so sublime.

All her albums are masterpieces and you should listen to them all right now. At the same time. Like some kind of sublime harp Zaireeka.

They probably picked that one to cover because it's Suf's absolute best song.

I'm enjoying this! Then again, I also liked We Appreciate Power which most of y'all poo-pooed so maybe I just lack discernment in all things Grimes.
