Find Me On:
Talk to me Prince.
Kanye’s an angry man. It’s a hard life.
“May I bang on this?”
I think this is a brilliant album. It is messy, disjointed, dense to the point of confusion, and totally irreverent – but all in a manner seen with other great works of art. It seems silly to perch aloft an album whose composers are clearly thumbing their nose at their audience in jest – but it’s warranted.
The break in Mercury Man before the final section send off is filled with sample upon sample – like Monet creating new colors, layering color upon color on the canvas – AC creates new sounds layering instruments and samples on top of each other…using soundscape as their canvas.
I love this album and I hope they continue working collaboratively, together – in person. There is no doubt the final product benefited from their writing and recording this album together in the studio.
A day in and this is album of the year thus far for me.
I am blown away. I cower meekly in the corner. That was magnificent.
Wow…I’m blown away. I cower meekly in the corner. That was magnificent.
This is a great song (Applesauce).
CAN WE BUY THIS NOW, PLEASE??? GIMME GIMME GIMME GIMME GIMME
But have you seen the clouds?
The production is sooo hot. It’s like Kanye on steroids.
I keep clicking the side banner by accident. Tricksy Stereogum…
DVR is your friend in this instance.
Sexy mix. I make love to you.
By the way, My Valentine is a damn fine song.
Murphy’s comments are obviously hyperbolic, although the larger point is one echoed by Lennon and Harrison in the 70′s – namely that McCartney takes the easy route at times, however the idea that arguably one of the greatest pop music composers – ever – is a hack is just silly.
Regardless, I’d like to see McCartney work with James Murphy, Kenye West, and Daniel Rosen – possibly at the same time.
This is incredible. We need a studio recording of this piece. Dutch – don’t let us down.
There is only one Lulu.
Auto-Tune giveth. Auto-Tune taketh away.
