Find Me On:
so, in conclusion, let’s just wait and see? shouldn’t that be the theme for all “premature evaluations”?
i got really excited when i read the headline because i thought this was a counting crows article. oh well.
i’ve spent all day trying to think of a yoko ono joke.
super bummed that grizzly bear, et al, are so low on this list! disappointing! #igetmyselfworthfromyearendlists
yeah, but has that scott walker even come out yet? will it be included in next year’s list too?
how many times a day would you say you are telling people this?
can we get a premature evaluation already?
i’m still mystified…how is LDR trending down but still in first? do the thumbs mean anything at all? after two straight weeks with downward trends, so does this mean that two weeks ago she was ranked -1? please help.
ok. but how can somebody be trending down (LDR) and still be in the top spot?
thumbs down: this feature.
tom, where exactly are you sitting?
heartbroken? really? you do realize that this is just a meaningless list, right?
how has this not already happened, like, a million times?
srsly. i’ve commented this before, but i (we?) would love reviews of these live shows. i mean, i enjoy photos as much as the next dude, but some insight on the performance, as well as a setlist, would be great. justsayin’.
is thom’s gross hair a good enough reason to not watch these videos?
drive is my all time favorite REM track. that’s what’s missing.
that was exhausting.
i’m pretty sure that this isn’t the most comment story on stereogum…
me neither. can anybody explain, because “a package containing the record on two clear vinyl LPs and 625 pieces of art work” doesn’t sound anything like a newspaper.
does anybody remember when vanilla ice drove a motorcycle through a burning piece of plywood? or am i misremembering?
i’m having trouble downloading…
srsly. does brandon view this album differently than he originally did? if not, why is he reassessing it?
so, were you upstairs or downstairs?
re: mbdtf-it’s enjoyable pop music with an edge. it doesn’t change my life and i prolly won’t be listening to it in a year, but for now, it’s nice.
re: double take-don’t you think you would get some more meaningful opinions if you had waited a bit longer before reassessing, and in turn, asking readers for their reassessment? i’m all for offering opinions, but i think it’s more advantageous to wait a while before coming back to evaluate an album.
i guess this whole exercise is just a product of where we are as internet critics. not only are we evaluating music before it is even released, but we are giving a second evaluation before it really has time to marinate.
