I've said it once, and I'll say it again -- if people left this shit alone and started reading Tiny Mix Tapes, the world would be a more creative place.

"He fell in love with the stuff [Chipotle] after moving from Austin to Portland and noticing a sharp decrease in good Mexican dining options" Man, as a Portlander myself, all I can take from this is that he must have REALLY, REALLY not tried too hard to find his beloved "mexican dining options." Even if he was in NW, Christ, they at least have Pepino's.

Is it just me, or is he kind of looking like Robert Smith in that pic at the top?

"A previously unknown singer-songwriter," but produced by Passion Pit and co-written by Charli XCX. Right...

Jim O'Rourke's production shaped this album. I remember when the first live versions of songs that would wind up on Sky Blue Sky came out and I first heard "Impossible Germany." Of course it's a great song, but the period of time between hearing that early live version and the resultant album release allowed me to imagine what would happen with the tune might O'Rourke's stamp be on it. Needless to say, it just wasn't the same.

Shout out to Ambulance LTD! Classier songwriting, yet always a footnote.

Unfortunate racism aside, can we all agree that the women involved in this are pretty hot?

God forbid an artist criticize a manufactured pop star in 2014, and make a statement about authenticity.

In college several years ago, me and some buddies of mine met the (then?) manager for Ted Leo and we asked him who the biggest dick in the industry was. He immediately responded with "Bob Pollard."

How about the fact that it's not a "new" album? It's mostly patched-up stuff from the 90's. Also, when did a guy like Kevin Shields ever care about some corporate bullshit award? These 90's reunions are really killing my eardrum buzz.

Haven't listened to it yet because on principle I ignore albums that are only first available via a corporate tie-in. What a shot in the foot. Can you imagine how many people were introduced to this album by not bothering to sign up with Rdio and just browsing the clips? Anyway, I'll check it out eventually, but my suspicions upon hearing "Alien Days" seem confirmed. "Brown and grey." That's what I thought, too. I really liked Congratulations, but for some reason I'm not inclined to afford these guys the same understanding that I would a group that were doing all of this in a more DIY way -- a band without the legions of headbands and Hollywood/Ticketmaster types that want to love them and pay them and listen to their complaining.
