wow- maan. Good ear, there are some striking melodic similarities.
I truly love the Beach Boys body of work. The Pet Sounds, Surfs Up and Holland Album especially stand out as iconic pieces of work but this song, wow.. their is so much to dislike but mainly the production sounds way to manufactured, way to slick. My feelings are summed up here: http://www.americanpancake.com/2012/04/beach-boys-thats-why-god-made-radio-is.html
Brad you are right on and said it so more articulately than I could have, although I think Jack White and other musicians who gravitate to lesser quality gear do it for a wide variety of reasons one of which is it is just damn fun to create more with less. It does bother me when music artists, especially someone as big as Jack does create demand by making a limited edition. When you are an up and coming band and you produce your 7 inch vinyls or cassettes – those are the things that may become rare gems when those bands blow up. That is entirely different than a Jack White or a Radiohead putting out a limited pressing- AND don’t get me wrong, it is all about business and in a time when most music is traded or downright stolen, artists have to find ways to generate money. What drives me crazy is that flippers are merely business men as well and not doing anything illegal. Jack White or anyone else who puts out limited editions creates these flippers.
um… ubiquitous can also mean widespread or prevalent. Something can be “pretty” widespread or prevalent
I applaud Byrne and Miller for slapping those politicians upside the head- BUT let’s hope if they are awarded monetary compensation that they contribute it to a worthy cause.
