The first few episodes are pretty awful, but then it actually gets good. Also there's a Sedaris/Colbert reunion.

"It's a new thing...I see it as a distinctly Generation Y, or Millenials doing this"... no. people started experimenting with tape loops in the late 1950s... this Terry Riley piece from 1963 is entirely "sample-based". http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lMcmMhfYkNI

is it really less wasteful to buy a new cake everyday, rather than refrigerating the leftovers?

I actually had the opposite experience as the reviewer and found this album to be extremely "immediate". So much so, that I was worried it might not stand up to repeat listens; although i'm not as worried about that anymore.

the word prolific means "producing many works". I didn't listen to this madonna song, nor do i care to, but by definition madonna is obviously more "prolific" than S Club 7... the content of a song's lyrics generally don't indicate their performer's volume of output.

btw, my use of the improper "you're"/"your" was deliberate. commenting on the fact that you don't have to use correct spelling (or impossibly intricate language that expresses little) to make a point. THANKS BB!!! U LOOK GOOD!

haha, this is a really funny article. you sound really smart ("I use big words"), but you're arguments are really weak. the intro says you're going to take on the "gender aesthetic" of Grimes, but you barely address that. and so what? you're annoyed by her asexuality? you wish she used her "womanhood and sexuality as a source of power" (which frankly Fever Ray does not do and would probably take offense by the suggestion)? that's fucking sexist. and maybe avoiding explicit sexuality ties into the fact that she wants to "operate from a robot zone" as you say... As for hating on her robot qualities/ "negated humaness" (which is an aesthetic that Fever Ray DOES employ btw), at least it's a deliberate and conscious decision. she obviously has a clear idea of what she wants to do and if you don't appreciate her artistic intentions that's fine, but don't hate the fact that people resonate with it. Not everyone has the same reasons for enjoying her music, so don't assume it's because they think she's "elf-like" (which IS an annoying thing to praise, and an image Bjork has had to combat previously; and yet you seem OK with her). THE END. btw, the track you mention as "the fourth track" is actually the first. so. way to go, way to make your readers take your criticism seriuosly!
