Comments from If bookworms ruled the world, bookstores would have shopping carts.

I'd suggest U2 and Arcade Fire out of these. I really love those two albums. I've got quite a few blind spots on this list myself, though.

Yeah I'm just glad that my mom is into Enya and Loreena McKennitt! That's some quality mom music.

Not sure what's going on anymore, but luckily no one's going to see this anyways. And if you do, well, cool find.

One of Emperor's members stabbed a gay guy to death (37 times) and then kicked him in the head repeatedly. We will never hear that man's side of the story. So... Taylor Swift wins this round, you sick fucking pieces of shit.

OK, yeah, this is a great intro! I feel like no band names could be be completely denotative, because readers/listeners are going to automatically employ their own connotations, right? Also, I would agree (I think) that the quality of the name isn't as important as the quality of the music (or the quality of our knowledge of the music that the name stands for). For example, I won't listen to Burzum because I know who he is, even though that name itself would otherwise mean nothing to me. I know that he's influenced a lot if artists I like, but I consider his music to be something to be avoided. Although I guess that is based neither on word recognition nor music recognition, but rather on personality recognition. I don't know.

"Seance" would be a pretty good name for a funeral doom band. "Instead, they powered on with Buttocks" has got to be one of the best parts of this month's entry. Another choice intro, Ian!

I think you just have to email Scott (from whatever email account is linked to your 'Gum account). I've done it before, and I'll probably do it again. It's kind of pointless though, because it's considerably easier to sign up for an account than it is to delete one. You might as well just take a long break. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ But if you really want to delete your account, it's definitely doable.

Great write-up, Tom! (Although I'm sad that "epiphany" didn't get a mention, in either the article or the comments. Am I the only one who loves that song? I think it's a very atypical and notable song for Taylor, and it surprised me in a good way.)

That NINA song would be at home on the Drive soundtrack. Good stuff. I didn't notice you say anything that bad in the Kanye thread. I wouldn't worry about it. I have absolutely melted down in a Stereogum thread before, and people are still nice to me. I think folks here tend to move on pretty quickly. :)

"Shouldn'ta Done That" is a great closer. This album should've come out during a better summer, but I guess you take what you can get.

I almost spaced that the new George Clanton + Nick Hexum album is out now! I'd forgotten just how great "Crash Pad" and "King for a Day" are. Happy weekend.

I upvoted you out of fairness, but most albums don't have a song as intense as "Possession". Overall, Taylor did pretty dang good on this one though.

She sings the first couple verses of "epiphany" like it's a Cocteau Twins song. Which is pretty much the highest praise I can give.

"While I don’t agree with some of the things she said about me, it’s important that she be allowed to say them and that she be supported for speaking out." Wow, what a swell guy! But seriously, he's just saying whatever he thinks he needs to say. Typical abusive behavior.

I finally listened to Angel Olsen's Burn Your Fire for No Witness for the first time this week. I was a tad underhwlemed (or perhaps simply whelmed), until "Windows" came along and absolutely wrecked me. That's gotta be one of her best songs! Anyway, happy weekend, pals. Try not to celebrate the 4th of July. 👋😒👍

Welcome! That's cool, I didn't even know Margaret was an author as well. I'll have to track those down. I'm also just now finding out that she's good at three different things: her dark pop solo project as Nomadic War Machine is great stuff too. She just dropped a new EP yesterday.
