Find Me On:
Loving the industrial vibe on both tracks. If these two tracks are representative, it’s going to be a baggin’ album.
Best theme song in a loooooong time, and that’s a fun version.
Not the original of course, but I doubt anyone can top that.
Low! Hands down my favorite Bowie album, and I love seeing it get its due (even though I prefer it to Ziggy, I can’t argue with the swap of my personal top two).
The thing that most tells me how good this album is (I certainly like it, but haven’t heard it enough yet to form a proper opinion of just how much) is that each review seems to highlight different tracks. The only exception is “In Another Way” which seems to be the consensus stand out.
He played it live on Friday and it was actually really great. The studio version? Not so much.
I’m not crazy!?! That’s what I’ve been saying all along and I finally found someone who agrees.
Isn’t the Berlin Trilogy, Low, “Heroes”, and Lodger, rather than Station to Station? I always thought so, and Wikipedia backs me up, so I MUST be right.
I stand by my vote for Amber Coffman.
I love the first Sleigh Bells album, but can’t for the life of me figure out how Reign of Terror is making any year end lists.
So because SPIN and Stereogum are both BUZZMedia I don’t get the handy list without bells and whistles, and have to click through for the pointless slideshow? Bummer.
Agree with the above that Bloom being left of shocking. That’s the only serious oversight though.
A bunch of great alums this year, but for me it has to be Purity Ring’s Shrines at #1.
It just got really dusty in here.
Thank you! I was sure I was listening to Matt Berninger during the credits, but couldn’t find confirmation anywhere.
I can’t comprehend a ranking of Replacement’s albums that doesn’t have Let it Be at #1. “Unsatisfied”, “Androgynous”, “Sixteen Blue”, etc. Pure genius.
I’d also move the other Twin Tone discs up above the last couple major label ones because I’ll always prefer the young brashness of them, but I can understand the ordering here based on the song craft.
At least in the Home Depot case, the Black Keys have only one count: Copyright Infringement under 17 U.S.C. 106 and 501, and the basis of the claim is the use of the actual song. There are no averments to “right of publicity” in the complaint.
The Home Depot’s Answer is basically the standard, “lacks sufficient information to admit or deny” so we deny. Most of the defenses are also standard, but there are defenses of Innocent Infringement, De Minimus Use, Fraud on the Copyright Office, and Public Domain. None of these defenses is expanded upon as of yet, however.
I got this information by viewing the documents online through the Federal Court’s PACER system.
If someone releases an album this year that I like more than The Men’s Open Your Heart, I’ll be surprised and thrilled. There are certainly some acts yet to release this year that I like enough to top it, but man that album is good.
Oh, I meant hot dog. As much as I love The Smiths/Moz’s music, the thought of Moz freaking out over a hot dog eating contest at this particular convention makes me smile.
Did they have a hot dog eating contest too? They should have had a hot dog eating contest.
2/1 – Bang on A Can All Stars
It’s cliche, and has already been mentioned here I’m sure, but seeing the “Smells Like Teen Spirit” video for the first time was mind blowing. Was in an acquaintances basement (I don’t think I was ever in that basement before or after), playing Nintendo. Switched on MTV and that video came on and just changed everything for me. I don’t know who I’d be if that didn’t happen, and I don’t want to know.
For new memories, I was reflecting on the album this weekend and realized that for my 11 month old, “Nevermind” is as old as “Kind of Blue” was when I was born. That’s also mind blowing, but in a whole different and more depressing way.
