"My Favorite Year" was my favorite Destroyer song for quite some time.

After a handful of listens I'd put it at #7. Which just reminds me how many really good Destroyer albums there are. Rubies Kaputt Streethawk Your Blues Poison Season Trouble in Dreams Ken City of Daughters This Night Thief We'll Build Them a Golden Bridge/ Ideas for Songs

This is the weirdest Destroyer album since Your Blues. To me that's a good thing –– I've been a fan for a long time and I like when he gets weird. I completely understand why this might seem vexing or genuinely off-putting to some. But I love it.

Amanda Petrusich is great, so I wasn't surprised that was a good read. Most of my favorite albums from the past 5 years have received between 7.4 – 8.3 on the other site so no surprise there.

This isn't half as scary as the other stories involving Michael Jackson where kids go to a creepy house.

I don't love the lyrics and it's a bit too dramatic for my tastes. It builds really well and there are some cool parts, though.

Funny you say that because it's one of the two songs ("Funny Thing She Said") on that album I don't like very much. I at least like it better than "Summer Dress" on Primrose Green. Generally I really like his stuff, but that one... no thanks.

I guess this explains why Trump's foreign policy is "Territorial Pissings" without the irony.

I see that you are also a student of the great philosopher Darius Rucker.

Very excited to hear Ken because Bejar's the best and the MacKay/Walker joint because guitars. Currently listening to this Bell Witch album, which means I'm doing a small headbang every 10 seconds.

"The Doomed" works just as well as the title of any other A Perfect Circle song. Especially so in the case of their "Imagine" cover.

You know he's gone off the deep end because he referred to his former band as "the Blink 182."

That's a mean thing to say about Courtney Love probably

I'm not a fan of grammar nazism but there's a troupe/troop mixup here that might make people think the Pussycat Dolls were originally a lone sexy soldier.

I haven't been the downvoter btw, I'm not a downvoter in general. If you can't say something nice don't say it at all amirite?

It's like how a class action suit by people dicked over by a corporation carries more weight than one individual complaint. The cumulative effect of having so many accounts synthesized and contextualized by a known entity leaves a bigger mark, makes it harder to for the accused to shake off.

As Love suggested I think many of them were probably afraid they'd get hit with a massive libel suit if they didn't have any hard evidence. This is why we need the press.

It's kind of like if someone put Ray of Light and the Downward Spiral in a blender.

I for one really like the album but I think we can all agree they should have called it Cry Cry Again.

And I know I just did it but for Christ's sake let's stop calling something "indie rock" and acting like that's a useful descriptor.

It surprised me simply because I think out of all the albums by the leading lights of mid-00s indie that came out this year I like the Wolf Parade album the most. It's not a particularly ambitious album, but it's a great consolidation of strengths. I understand Pitchfork's urge to not become Rolling Stone, but I think the imperative to –– to borrow a phrase from our good friend here –– "respect motherfucking craft" should extend to indie rock bands as well.

I have to think about "Looking Backward" far more than anyone should.
