Metacritic is a gross (as in disgusting) standard for valuing something. A lot of those numbers are almost arbitrary. When there is an absence of a numbered score in an article, metacritic assigns one based on the “feel” of the article. Highly questionable.
Eh, Typical. Get sarcastically chastised for having a different opinion than getting on ones knees and worshiping this album, sarcastically respond with despondent Patrick, get down votes.
Bunch of plebes (sarcasm).
It’s good but it’s been over-hyped to death. It doesn’t deserve near the amount of attention it’s gotten.
An interesting notion. I like it.
I gave up on Spotify awhile ago. Rdio is my current service. It may not have the extensive catalog that Spotify has, but to be fair, Rdio is adding new albums every day. More over, it’s UI isn’t a disgusting, unwieldy brick. Their mobile apps are pretty amazing as well.
All that said, I may be a bit of a Google fanboy, so odds are I will try this and if it proves to be anywhere near as good as Rdio/Spotify, I’ll more than likely switch.
Google are like the Borg, you’ll get assimilated eventually.
I’ve never had a proper introduction to LCD Soundsystem. So here we go!
All GIFs and such aside, this is an amazing album. It’s incredibly dark and moving. Their most aggressive (and arguably best) effort to date. Aggressive in lyrics and in nuanced melodies/backbeats. I love this album and I love The National.
I may have a been a bit…shall we say…”under the weather” when I typed that. Might’ve been a bit egregious with that whole statement. Sorry fellow Gummers.
1) Sick of all this bullshit Apple dominance.
2) Regarding the album: I’d beat/fuck to it (I.E.: thumbs up)
Such a good track.
Well, at least they didn’t lie about their music.
In case anyone wanted to know, the band’s name comes from an excellent Bela Tarr film.
Hahahahaha. Billy Corgan had hair. Hahahaha.
Been waiting weeks to use a Ron Swanson GIF. Now seems appropriate:
If they continue as a band I will be shocked and saddened.
He’s haunting the chapel now.
Considering my state last night, I’m really impressed I could type that out.
In the immortal words of Nicolas Cage: FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK!!!!!!!
I’ve had a rough night and I fucking hate the Eagles, man.
I was going to make the same point. I seriously doubt that they would play the 3 1/2 minute version for six hours. It would seem to make the most sense to have an evolving, cathartic playing of “Sorrow” over six hours. With a live performance anything is possible.
I sincerely doubt a band as great as The National would play a studio version of a song for six hours. They aren’t Pharrell.
Incredibly, horribly, sadistically lame.
You are a beautiful person, Donny.
