Find Me On:
so good all of these songs nobody elses songs
@oblivion you hacked the system so i couldnt burn you, chess moves!! naw, i definitely see how one could get that vibe from Dream but its a shame because there he makes some great tunes you aren’t able to enjoy. I’m sure its okay though because you fill that void with other songs. By better production, I suppose I could say just more preferred production. The layers of sound and various quirks in every song really keep me finding new things to love, even from Love Hate. I would even venture to say his 5 best songs surpass Ocean’s and Weeknd’s 5 best songs and that speaks volumes. “Body Work/F*uck My Brains Out”, “Yamaha”, “Fast Car”, “Rockin That Shit”, and “Fancy” or “Wake Me When It’s Over” are tough to match up with but it’s all relative I suppose.

I haven’t heard Autre Vent’s album yet but I believe the big 3 all have their distinct calling card. Dream is my favorite simply because the music is the most important to me but I understand the appeal of the others. Also, Dream’s lyrics are so bad sometimes that they are great and because of that I would put him probably 2nd based on the “memorable lyrics” criteria but I’m aware of their simplicity. Weeknd is more spacey, Ocean is more traditional, and Dream is more pop. I don’t think they sound the same at all honestly. They all have their own niches. Somewhat unrelated, Ocean and Weeknd both have front to back stellar albums to their credit and Dream just has 3 to 4 song flawless stretches with duds in between but maybe he puts it together this time.
This is it. The first truly great offering since “Body Work/F*ck My Brains Out”. Was worried the push backs were going to stunt the quality of the album based on the first few releases, but this is Terius at his best.
Exactly, I think you have to be really be looking for the racism for it to even stand out as a compelling narrative in a movie with more than enough purposefully interesting themes.
“Why do you need me to tell you what to think all the time? Why can’t you just dream on it? Why are people so scared of going to places where they’re forced to reconcile what they know or come up with their own feelings or forge their own connections? People get pissed when it’s not all one way, when someone’s not all bad or all good. But that is not interesting to me. It’s too easy to judge people and condemn people.”
Spring Breakers has no point, you’re not SUPPOSED to feel any certain way. The girls are good or bad depending on your personal viewpoint, Korine just allows the audience to give themselves something to think about rather than directly telling them what to think about himself and I think that is the beauty of the film, along with Selena Gomez.
The whole “this film is racist” complaint is ignorant of the fact that racism exists. The article posted above hints at Harmony Korine being the brains behind the idea that “black people’s lives matter less than others” rather than just being responsible for shedding light on the already popular idea. Police brutality statistics, and even the lack of action with the current murder rate of black communities in inner city Chicago say a lot more than Spring Breakers does about race. Like the entire movie, Korine just portrays cultures as they are and leaves the interpretation to the audience. If you believe that something is racist, I’m not too sure that Korine is the man to blame.
Really loving this album. Not comfortable placing it above Room on Fire, but I think that in the future if I want to listen to the Strokes and I don’t want to listen to Is This It, I am going to listen to Comedown Machine. Room On Fire is so similar to Is This It that when I want my Strokes fix, I just listen to the superior album. It’s been said before but Comedown Machine is something completely different than the band has done before and now serves as the only other good Strokes album with an identity all its own.
Julian doesn’t sound cool enough. :(
So its okay when Justin does it, but not Bruno?
Am I the only one listening to these?
Don’t have anything funny to say, I just like these songs. Hope that’s cool.
I will accept this as a song.
Not a surprise. Even in the beginning with “Combination Pizza Hut & Taco Bell”, they were never quite on the same page.
Tame Impala – Lonerism
Fuck it. I hate the internet.
This is actually the first list I have seen that has Graduation properly assessed on the low end of Kanye’s musical output, in my opinion. The good fellas at Complex always name it as Yeezy’s magnum opus and so do most artists who comment about the Louis Vuitton Don’s discography, most recently ASAP Rocky. Never understood the admiration of it. I believe Mr. West accomplished his goal with that album but I don’t think his goal was to make the best music he could as much as it was to make the BIGGEST music he could and it shows. MBTDF succeeds as the album where he accomplishes both, and to me, is only behind Illmatic when it comes to greatest hip-hop albums ever.
^yes, I tried real hard not to refer to ‘Ye in the same way twice. and I did it. I fucking did it.
