A band that worked this hard to mythologize themselves can't just turn around and tell their fans to chill.

If I intellectualize this I can understand that James Murphy can do what and if you like the music then nothing else should matter. But the fact is, I can't listen to LCD Soundystem anymore without feeling cheated and gross.

Yeah, that's his voice. I don't think anyone could impersonate that British-meets-Southern accent if they tried.

When I saw them on their last tour, they said "we'll see you again in seven years" at the end of the show. It was obviously meant more as a cheeky reference to how rarely they tour than an actual game plan, but I've always trusted that claim above their breakup. They're coming back. Would be cool if these videos mean a shorter wait.

You guys are right. In a post-Dimebag world, you never know which teenage girls at the Jewish community centre are carrying a gun and intend to murder you.

Preferring Being There is like thinking the Blue Album is better than Pinkerton. It's totally okay to do.

August 2, 2017 on Arcade Fire’s Win Butler Responds To Critics: “I Do Not Rap”
Also, FFS, I don't think anyone anywhere has actually said that he raps on this album. They mean he's rapping as opposed to singing, and that it sounds lazy. The go to comparison has been Blondie's "The Rapture," where I would definitely say she raps. Talk-singing would be the only other reasonable (non-German) word to use and that's more what Leonard Cohen did. Win Butler doesn't sound anything like that here.

Win Butler turning this around to be about everyone else being stupid and not knowing real rap is is 100% pure Win Butler. I'm surprised he didn't also specify that it's actually called "sprechgesang."

This will definitely help with Paul Ryan's whole "I'm a cool dude who's into rock" thing.

I'm thinking of all the stuff James Murphy said about not becoming a legacy act when he retired LCD Soundsystem. To me, this sounds like a song by LCD Soundsystem, the legacy act. I wasn't sure if I could get behind the idea of LCD Soundsystem 2.0 and this song doesn't help. Sigh.

I now feel like the best tribute to Chuck Berry is to watch a long string of bands playing mediocre covers of "Johnny B. Goode" to highlight how much better Chuck Berry was.

I honestly had no idea anyone thought of this as anything but an innovative and visually striking performance. I guess I can see how it lacks energy when I look back it now, but still, it's super memorable and interesting and playful in exactly that Frank Ocean way.
