agree 100% - i'll always be disappointed that they did not continue on the Achtung Baby => Zooropa => Pop trajectory

September 6, 2017 on U2 – “You’re The Best Thing About Me”
my thoughts exactly. it's funny that people are reacting as though Win wrote this. it was obviously written by Clickhole, which is not everyone's teacup.

every time U2 does something new i'm always hoping that maybe this time they'll dig a little deeper in to Bono's War-era lyric notebooks.

don't understand the connection you're trying to make; he covered that album really, really well. the real reason he shouldn't feel justified talking shit about another musician is that it's a shitty thing to do.

love this, bloc - i do feel as though i'm swimming against a tidal swell here with all the AF hate. it's almost enough to convince me that i don't actually like the new music, but gosh damn it, i still do.

i do see where you're coming from here, but because i love analogies, does this mean that a head chef/restaurant owner can't dictate a dress code in her/his restaurant? because if i'm paying $300 for dinner, i should be able to dictate the terms of my experience? this is kinda moot now that Win cleared things up, but shouldn't an artist be able to dictate the terms of the experience they're attempting to deliver?

would there be anything wrong with that?

if the objection is to using the language "HIP & TRENDY" then i agree 100% - that does indeed make them sound like old farts trying to be cool.

i don't see anything at all wrong with this. if my band were planning a special release-party performance event at a small venue, had an aesthetic/theme in mind, and were planning on filming the show for release, i would consider doing the same. i'm open to being wrong about this, or changing my mind, but none of the angry commenters here have explained why they feel so strongly about it, it's all just "fuck these guys"... what specifically do you see as being problematic? why does wanting folks to dress nicely when they come to the party you're planning make you a pretentious dick?

"what the hell is this band doing??" evolving, trying new things, experimenting, and pissing everyone off who just wants them to never do those things and stay stuck in 2004, i guess.

also unprofessional: letting your comment section do all your research for you, after publishing your story.

June 30, 2017 on Arcade Fire – “Signs Of Life”
jeez, i seem to be the only person around who is really digging all three of these new songs. it's not hitting me emotionally on the level of Suburbs, but damn if i'm not feeling the grooves and where they're coming from. i like that he's jacking Debbie Harry's flow. i'm not interested in hearing this band try to make another Suburbs or Funeral, i'm interested in seeing how they evolve and keep trying new things. which is exactly where U2 lost me: not when they made Pop (which, full disclosure: i love), but when they then backtracked on that commitment to exploring new things and doubled-down on trying to please their audience.

June 14, 2017 on Arcade Fire Tease “Creature Comfort” With A Commercial For Ritalin Cereal
saw them this wednesday eve., listening to the record all day today. how many bands can reunite 20yrs later and make the best record of their career? live, the new songs were as powerful and well-received as their classics - also unheard of. their live show is such an amazing, positive vibe; i recommend it to anyone. so happy to have Slowdive back :)

this was my first thought. there are good, talented people out there who work their asses off for years to get anywhere in the music business. this person got famous for being very unpleasant on a talk show and now gets sessions with big-time producers?

that's a Stratocaster he's playing, though. a Jazzmaster or Starcaster might have been a little more another-galaxy.
