Find Me On:
Agree with number one… all I’m going to say
Awww I was hoping it was going to be like Dinosaur Jr.’s “remix” and would just be completely different cover.
Hell yes, buying tickets today! Would not have seen this if it weren’t for stereogum
I feel that too much of this write up was centered on attacking the idea of Tyler The Creator. Like he’s not fulfilling some sort of fantasy you have of him. I’m not a huge fan, but I find some of his work really interesting and don’t really listen to him for lyrical insight. I think this was much better than Goblin and there are at least five songs which I will definitely be going back to, which as a previous person put it is all I’m really looking forward in an album like this.
Ohhhhh. I happened to get a new computer the day they changed that, so I thought my computer was just having like a formatting issue and was incredibly annoyed.
Yes! What Ever Happened is definitely in my top three.
What about the song IS THIS IT?? I feel like that track encompasses what The Strokes are.
What are you?
I like to keep the reader guessing
1. Night on the Sun
2. Talking Shit About A Pretty Sunset
3. Teeth Like God’s Shoeshine
6. Trailer Trash
7. Other People’s Lives
8. Doin’ the Cockroach
9. Bankrupt On Selling
10. 3rd Planet
It’s truly sad how much time I spent working on this, but this whole thing has just reminded me how fucking amazing Modest Mouse is. Also t
Wow really? God everyone’s so uptight, I actually thought Tom was really funny in this write up. Domo 23 sounds like another Rella, so it’s not really my thing. Bimmer sounds really great though and I hope there’s more of that kind of stuff on the album.
Hmm I’ll definitely give it a listen! I’ve listened to loveless many times, because of all the crazy hype there is around it and it just never clicked. Which is odd because I totally dig shoe gaze type stuff.
Ughhh I wish I was into MBV ’cause if I was this would be super exciting
Frank Ocean knowing kung fu makes this ten times more interesting to me
I’m not even that big of a Dinosaur Jr. fan but c’mon really The fucking Lumineers have a larger font?
Something about airplanes. Fuck yeah bellingham!
Thank you! I was actually just about to say that. Generally I don’t mind pitchfork and find it useful in terms of learning about new music, but God they piss me off when they just decide that an album deserves an absurdly low number of stars and can’t even properly justify it. Now because of their stupid review many people are going to pass on the album and it might have been something that very well enjoyed.
Ughh I’m getting the gross feeling that since so many people loved and ranted over the Frank Ocean album when it came out, it’s now “cool” to not talk about it/and generally pretend it didn’t happen.
The only “outrage” is in this list is the absence of Heroin. But hey at least you guys didn’t miss Pale Blue Eyes or Candy Says. So cheers!
I kinda don’t like how this lists just skips off his last couple albums. I mean Happiness and Somebody that I used to know are just outstanding. Also I don’t understand how Say Yes isn’t on here, regardless of its popularity.
Wow, you summed up my feelings for both artists better than I’ve been able to.
This is just really fucking good music. Genre, sexual preference, previous albums aside this is just a super stellar album. I honestly thought he was pretty good but over hyped after Nostalgia, Ultra. This album definitely has staying power every song is unique but works in its own way. Hate to join the supposed “bandwagon” but I have to say this is the best album of the year (so far).
Are you saying headbands are gay?
Uhh well don’t panic is still a pretty good song…
