you know the old trope of non-metalheads who hear a snippet of metal and declare "it just sounds like noise"? that's me with the new Baroness. i tried, y'all, i really did. i love Baroness, they're one of the bands that got me into metal. i've seen them multiple times, owned multiple t-shirts, evangelized them to other people, etc. this album sounds like someone blasting raw static in my ear. it sounds like someone left a white noise machine on by mistake in the recording booth. i can get down with lofi- old Darkthrone and boombox-era Mountain Goats are my shit, i can get down with noise- Boredoms, Lightning Bolt, the Locust, whatever. this is just painful to listen to. i'm glad other folks are getting something out of it but please god, let Kurt Ballou produce the next one.

he has zero range as a singer, but a pretty great pissed-off sludge metal growl, which is why they were a far better band when they were still doing harsh vocals

The Mother Lode and Nose Grows Some are two of my favorite Yorke songs, i think "Mother Lode" even ended up being my most-played song on Spotify that year

"They're making a dirty fortune off an inferior version of rock and roll" is our generation's "We dance to all the wrong songs, enjoy all the wrong moves".

Bungle in the Jungle and Living in the Past made Top 20 but neither Aqualung nor Locomotive Breath did? You poor old sod, indeed.

"Imagine" is in my personal Worst 5 Songs of All Time, in such esteemed company as "All Star" and "Pretty Fly for a White Guy".

June 13, 2019 on The Number Ones: John Lennon’s “Whatever Gets You Thru The Night”
i complain about the mix because it sounds bad, intentionally or not. listen to "Throw Me an Anchor" back to back with, say, "Take My Bones Away". notice how the latter has clearly audible, heavy bass, and the former sounds like it has no bass at all? i want my Baroness to have bass in it.

i agree with all of this. Killing Tech and Dimension Hatross are the classics, and the most recent two are very good as well.

Dave Fridmann ruined this band. It's a tragedy. What the fuck was wrong with John Congleton? Blue Record and Yellow/Green sound warm and lush as hell. This sounds worse than Flood's hack job on Machina.

i can appreciate the band experimenting and diversifying their sound, but to me this sounds more like a BSS or Stars album than The National. plus there's just a lot of filler. it could have been a very tight 10-song album and instead it's kind of a mess.

i like Cardi in pure flex mode, but this feels more like an album cut or intro track a la "Get Up 10" than a single. still goes harder than her last few songs though.

I want to share a Number Ones story. This past weekend, my girlfriend and I moved into a new apartment. Friday night we packed up all the loose ends at our old place. The soundtrack to packing was the TB's 10s Spotify playlist on shuffle. As the night was winding down, Ben E. King's "Stand By Me" came on. My girlfriend and I sat on the last two remaining chairs in our apartment of 6 years, with our lives packed up in bins around us, and quietly shed a tear together. As we both sat there crying, exhausted, the next song that came on? "Got Your Money" by Ol' Dirty Bastard. Thank you Tom and whichever commenter created the playlist (in Spotify you're just listed as "david") for that moment.

May 28, 2019 on The Number Ones: John Denver’s “Annie’s Song”
for me personally, Octahedron was the only enjoyable one and the only one that came close to recapturing the magic of Deloused. Bedlam is far too busy, it's really the peak of their "cram as many pedal effects and weird robot voices into this song" pyrotechnical wizardry, which i found exhausting. Noctorniquet had them trying a glam/Queen thing, which I don't think they pulled off successfully. i really enjoyed Antemasque though, and the ATDI reunion was hella underrated, so i'm down for whatever these guys cook up next.

May 27, 2019 on Cedric Bixler-Zavala Says Mars Volta Reunion Is Happening
The 21st century will be defined by two major threats to human existence: climate change and conservatism. Unfortunately we cannot deal with the former until we eliminate the latter. Of course it's okay to bully conservatives, their existence is a threat to the survival of humanity. There is no truce with the right. Fuck 'em all.
