Wouldn't have guessed she'd be a melodic hardcore fan, but good to know!

KSG is incredible and Nasir is mostly very good too (I'm not familiar with Nas' back catalogue except for Illmatic, so I'm not going to compare it or anything - it was a good album by its own merit). I like Ye too but it's definitely not great and I'm not going to go back to it that often so whatever. Yandhi isn't looking very promising so far but TLOP had a messy release too and was/is incredible so who knows

LDA is one of the year's best albums so far, and I was afraid the January release date might make people forget that, so glad they're bringing it back to the conversation with this. Excited to check it out.

Only good thing to come out of this album is the goofy-ass Sex On Fire pun on Dark Fantasy

I mean, I don't understand why this even has to be discussed. Of fucking course

Yeah came here to say this. That DLZ scene is probably my favorite use of music in a TV show of all time. Iconic and powerful

Oof I was rooting for this album but this sounds like a mid 00's Weezer track. And this is coming from a big Weezer apologist. But it's not a compliment. Ok.

How many Kanye album tracklists did you have to read in order to craft this pun?

September 18, 2018 on Kanye West Teases New Project Yandhi Out Next Week
I've been pretty much out of the loop of new albums on recent weeks and mostly listening to Mac Miller's Swimming on repeat (a great, and now incredibly devastating, album), but I did get to listen to that new Bosse-de-Nage album and it is great!! Room 25 is also fantastic (obv.) and well-deserving of repeat listens. And I didn't see anyone discussing the new Pig Destroyer album! It's really good! what else did I miss? This week seems stacked, so excited to finally get a new BROCKHAMPTON album. Also looking forward to that new Joyce Manor!

I'm so incredibly fucking happy to see all the love in the comment section for LC!. One of my absolute favorite bands of all time. No one mentioned it, but The Sea Is A Good Place to Think of The Future is their best song (IMO) and probably one of my all time top 5 songs

Fuck. This got me real devestated. Such a young man, so much talent and only starting to hit his stride. I was really looking forward to following his career progreas even further. And he's just barely older than myself. Fuck. RIP kind soul

I'm talking about her Israeli fans, Sandro. There's a lot of them and judging by the amount of discussion on social media, they care

There's "lack taste" and then there's "be the one song on the project where he has to use that homophobic slur to remind everyone he used to be shocking"

August 31, 2018 on Justin Vernon Distances Himself From Eminem Collaboration: “We Are Gonna Kill This Track”
Also this statement is ridiculous, of course you can't decide to come play at a festival only a few weeks before it's due and somehow magically organize a second show at an occupied, military-ruled territory in the same time frame. That's just bullshit. If you want to cancel due to BDS pressure then just say it, that's fine, but this is just a populist statement trying to be fine with all sides involved and she definitely knew what she was getting herself into so it's even more annoyong imo

August 31, 2018 on Lana Del Rey Postpones Israel Show
I get it that she doesn't want to say she "cancelled" her show to not piss her fans and generally stay on good terms with everyone, but you can't really postpone a show that's at a festival. She's pulled out of the festival and that's it. It's also her second cancellation here in about 4 years so I'm not sure any promoter will really want to try and book her again, so yeah, not really "postponded" at all

I'd argue Bryrer Layter is more of an early Friday/Saturday afternoon album. But I was just listening to it yesterday evening and it's definitely the greatest

A band can truly only make the same song a limited amount of times (except if they're AC/DC)

August 29, 2018 on Kanye Finally Answers Kimmel’s Trump Question, Was Dismayed When Drake Sent Him Purple Demon Emojis
Man, I fucking love this album. This together with War Stories were some of the first albums me and my friends ever purchased and listened to a lot, due to Unkle coming around here to open for NIN in 2007. I don't remember anything from their set to be honest, but I do remember a lot of these songs making a huge impression on a 14 y.o. whose music taste consisted mostly of thrash metal. I go back to this album every once in a while and am always surprised to find something new about to get excited about in it, which is a huge achievement. and it has to be said that the Rabbit in Your Headlights video is probably the best music video of all time. it works every single time somehow, even when I know exactly how it's going to play out

It's definitely Rabbit in Your Headlights, but Ego/Mirror are both incredible and Shipwrecked also deserves praise

August 24, 2018 on BTS – “Idol” (Feat. Nicki Minaj)
Admittedly I haven't been listening to much post-Antics Interpol, but his voice just sounds bad these days, don't it? I don't know, haven't listened to the whole thing through yet, and the music is good mostly, but the vocals just sounds... weird? Like something is a bit off with his voice, maybe some vocal effects. I honestly don't know if I'm making this up but that's what I've mostly been thinking about while listening to the album
