FEELING THE FEELING

Comments from crania americana

This is my favorite album ever. I have a hard time articulating how much it means to me –– "the world" seems like a bit much, "a lot" a bit reductive. I'll just say it means a whole hell of a lot to me. "I'm gonna shine out in the wild kindness, and hold the world to its word."

They also rejected Stephen Malkmus's electronic album (which, to be fair, could turn out to not be all that listenable). Still, further proof that they're worried enough about the ol' bottom line that they aren't giving even their legacy artists carte blanche.

Really great find. Not sure if I ever read that, but it's fascinating to get the scoop regardless.

I love this album. Don't know if anyone can confirm this (I might have read it somewhere, might have surmised it, not sure), but it always sounded to me like the drums were recorded after Marshall did the solo guitar/vocal tracks, almost as an afterthought, which is why they're slightly off. Rather than follow the drummer, the drums are following her, giving the album that uniquely loose feel.

So is this about cocaine or winter in the Sierra Nevadas? Both?

Was hoping someone would mention this. Hard to think of a song/video that screams IT'S THE NINETIES harder than this one.

If it's any consolation, Nicki Minaj will surely be included on the Mount Rushmore of shoe-tossing victims alongside Austin Powers and George W. Bush.

A few more Prince albums, but other than that it seemed pretty similar to the last one they did, unless my memory is way off. My favorite album of the '80s (Up on the Sun) wasn't on there, though I guess I don't blame them for thinking Meat Puppets probably only needed one slot.

I was going to say this is the worst thing I've ever heard, but that's simply not true. I've heard Jared Leto perform songs written by Jared Leto.

I'm with you on both of these takes. "Goldtone" is one of the few 10-minute songs that I wish was a 20-minute song.

Welp, they're way ahead of me –– looks like they're rolling out heaps of Planet Fitness-inspired merch to go along with this. Nicely done. Gym jokes aside, I love this track –– KV's always great, but to me he's at his best when the shit gets spacey. Stoked for the album.

The video makes me worry that Mountain Man's new album is merely a recruitment tool for some sort of new cult, and I've seen enough documentaries to know that cults are bad. Having said that, it looks like a super chill cult and I'm definitely interested in joining.

Clearly he meant "Wee Disclosure," a nod to their diminutive stature that adheres to the site's standard cartoon leprechaun authorial voice.

This song kills me. Danko's vocals, that guitar solo, the horns at the end –– it might be my favorite of theirs.

I stopped paying attention to the Pitchfork points system about a decade ago, but I almost lost my shit when they gave Cosmo's Factory an 8.8. I know taste is subjective and all that jazz, but If we can't agree that that's a perfect album we're fucked.
