I still think the HBO show is better. /joke
Whoops, reply fail.
In all fairness, presumably their last friendly encounter occurred before she was fired in 2004, and this ‘brief’ intimate relationship could have happened over any of the 17 years before that. Maybe Ms. Lynch has been aging (much) less than gracefully.
So it’s morally reprehensible to associate yourself with an alcoholic product now (other than Miller Lite)?
They seem to be more upset about his ‘selling out’ than anything, which is just embarrassing. They seem to still be stuck in 2001, when it was possible for a band to actually make money via selling albums. Must be why they still haven’t released a follow up since then.
I am fascinated by this girl, and could easily read a post a day about her feelings about Occupy Wall Street, or the unrest in Syria. Beautiful voice, beautiful girl.
I can always appreciate some good Buck/McCarver hate.
I could listen to Hey Ya! every day for the rest of my life and never get sick of it. BOB is a great song, but it (and nearly everything else that decade) could come nowhere near the perfection of that one song. I could not agree less with your statement above.
That being said, this list is shit. Due to my own biases I could have told you that about a list by VH1 without even seeing it, of course.
I can also say that I used to look forward to premature evaluations of albums I had been hotly anticipating, and was always impressed with the quality of writing. This was the only place I went for this sort of analysis, pre-release. No disrespect intended with my comment above.
These need to be longer…
The Stereogum rating wasn’t the disappointing aspect of these evaluations, just the drop in length and quality. If we wanted a generic one paragraph review, we can wait until after the albums are actually released and go to one of the hundreds of other reviews. It’s better to have a long, thoughtful analysis of an unreleased album before the rest of the music blogosphere has a chance to weigh in, at least in my opinion.
Clap Your Hands Say Yeah…
Man, I was in love with this album circa 05-06. I still pop this in on occasion (skipping the intro every time). How the mighty have fallen, though. Some Loud Thunder’s intentional crappiness almost retroactively killed the debut for me.
One fine example of how blog hype can be a terrible thing if a band isn’t able to handle it, for whatever reason.
love this, i was so excitied when i saw it leaked
