Find Me On:
Gotta say Mr. The Whale, that I agree on the awesomeness, but I be thinking the frantic moments only reinforce the greatness of this album. It doesn’t sound confused. Each twist and image is perfect. I think the drumming on this album is much louder, which might account for some of it. That pounding rocks though.
This is their most awesome album yet, and that’s pretty awesome…cause all their shit is awesome.
Disagree with the comment about them being too busy or cluttered though. I think that busiest works out perfect and shows a level of complexity and band coherence that they’ve reached which was not available on the debut. It’s awesome. The amount of sounds are awesome. There are so many twists and turns…but somehow they all make sense and manage to stay super catchy/poppy. HELLA AWESOME OPSOSSUM.
Griffin, Poison Oak is my jam! My numero uno. Also would have liked to see “lover I don’t have to love” or “if the brakeman turns my way”
Cause Ronnie, that information was FUCKING VALUABLE
Okay, Opossum willing to accept the downvotes for this.
I’m gonna promote my friend who also wrote a killa song titled “Disintegrate.” It’s free stuff.
Anyway, this song is titty tight awesome. Opossum never heard this band befo but def lookin forward to this new album now. Opossum out!
Shout out to your boi, Nietzsche!
Put the ideas of history’s most tortured soul, Ozzy’s Black Sabbath, and 21st century mid-song advertisements for some damned radio station and what do you get? AWESOME POSTMODERNISM.
Only Descartes’ evil demon could pull a stunt like that.
These guys are heroes in the opossum community. This song was written for my recently deceived cousin, Ricky Jo. Poor guy scavenged in the wrong trashcan. He’ll be missed. Thanks for your support, The National. His story will not go untold. His main concern, promise that you will sing about him.
Not hatin’, for I am an opossum, but usually Zooey’s vocal performance is better than this. Not quite awesome.
That album opener is to opossum for.
Damn fuckin’ straight, Kevin.
Always I will be with you, Luke. Remember that.
7 is a lucky number. And demons is awesome. Opossum
Not awesome. Not awesome at all, sorry.
Transatlanticism should be at the top, and the band’s first three albums are not better than Codes & Keys, Plans, & Narrow Stairs. Their first three aren’t band, but they don’t stand out or sound particularly different from other indie bands of the time. There’s nothing hooking or grabbing.
Their later work is actually quite awesome. They’ve really grown into themselves, and into something unique, yet familiar and lovely. They aren’t spectacular albums, but they’re solid and function as the expression of a band that knows what they’re doing and how to do it. Maybe they’re getting points against them for this? Which is not awesome.
Awesome opossum out, and maybe not hipster enough. Awesome opossum needs new Converse sneakers…not! Fuck dat.
Awesome opossum out fo real tho.
opossum digging this “death n’ roll.” Awesome!
Personal pick is the Julian Lynch album, Lines. SUPER AWESOME.
Wavves and Strokes albums also remarkably awesome.
Damn, I’m gonna be the loser here and say that I thought it was funny. I was entertained.
But goats, toats suck. Take it from an opossum.
I don’t really sympathize with the skinhead (he’s obviously an idiot), but I don’t understand this culture of praise for Ken Casey’s actions. He’s not some kid at a punk show, he’s a professional musician on stage. Either way, he shouldn’t be praised for beating the shit out of someone like that.
^ Remember you are a troll, young opossumwan. Keep your wits about you. Even if you’re amongst people who promote unprovoked violence and intolerance of people with whom they disagree…kind of like Nazis.
Yeah me too. Why are people defending a guy who unreasonably started using violence?
Everyone who does a Nazi salute is a Nazi and therefore deserves to get the shit beat out of them…uh, no.
Fuck you dropkick murphys singer/bassist. That’s not cool, even if the guy actually is a skinhead.
Meanwhile no one cares about the opossum genocide. Figures.
If you don’t like Donny Tilla’s post I will come to your front porch and shit and die on it.
YOu know who’s actually a guilty pleasure? Kacey Musgraves. That girl made a really good pop-country album. Could have been album of the week, esp. if effin’ Miranda Lambert can do it.
JT’s album is decent at worst and at best I think. A couple songs are great.
Opossum thinks that “Muchacho” by Phosphorescent is the best album this week. Effin goooooood.
Opossum effin’ out. Fuck.
Jason, it’s awful. You know, they don’t even allow opossum on stage? How is my band gonna get any press if we’re not allowed at our own set?? I’m telling you, he’s got a point.
She’s not an opossum and is therefore a racist piece of shit. Tight song though.
Wayne is obviously an MC, though he my suck ass, esp. as of late.
2 Chainz is a hunk of shit that…well he’s just a hunk of shit.
