“…because although the spirit of 1939 Germany now pervades throughout media-brand Britain…”
Ugh, shut up.
Jamie’s one of the girls.
But I think the Kaoss pad is innovative, which is definitely something to his credit. Much like Tom Morello doesn’t have any specific traditional guitar playing which is innovative, he has the record scratch thing along with his use of the Whammy pedal, etc which elevate him to the status he deserves (because that is truly innovative).
I can definitely agree that Muse’s music has gone way downhill and their lyrics are terrible, etc etc, but you can’t deny that Matt Bellamy is a great (and somewhat innovative) guitar player who for that skill, often doesn’t get the credit he deserves.
Uh it’s kind of unbelievable that Stevie Ray Vaughan isn’t on this list. Also, I definitely think for a Rolling Stone list Jeff Beck and David Gilmour should be seriously considered.
But I think Nels Cline, Mike McCready, Matt Bellamy, Johnny Greenwood, and Mark Knopfler are all constantly underrated.
She’s gorgeous and seemingly vapid.
The fact that Pitchfork used a picture of me in the front row going crazy at Titus at Glasslands for their coverage kinda demonstrates my enjoyment of the show. It was the fifth time I’ve seen them and it continuously gets better and better. Here’s to hoping that trend continues, even without Amy.
Harmonix – Surfer Blood
I listened to this five times in a row last night while pulling an all-nighter, and although it’s not as memorable and obviously not as emotional as Hospice, it’s really good. I’d say it’s on par with In the Attic of the Universe, which I really like.
Congrats, FLW, I think 5 is the highest number of upvotes anyone has received on a post at Stereogum! werttrew, can you confirm this? …werttrew…? …guys?
…I’m cold and alone…
I think I speak for all those interested women when I say Alexandra Lawn.
My God, M. Ward’s guitar tone is so good here.
Okay, albums that should have been higher:
The morning benders
The Black Keys
Albums that were should have been included (I don’t even listen to most of these, but I recognize them as being quality):
Broken Social Scene
The Hold Steady
Two Door Cinema Club
Tokyo Police Club
Ra Ra Riot
Uh, is it just me or did they loot the equipment trailer for the Dead Weather, because the guitar and bass are the same ones Jack White and Jack Lawrence use, no?
Yeah, Alexandra Lawn is pretty much the most attractive girl in the world.
Uh, yeah, people (like Billy Corgan, apparently) would be saying the same thing about Pavement or Superchunk, but look at them now. Honestly, who cares if they’re “the it band?” That has literally nothing to do with their ability to put out great music that people want to listen to…? Plus look at the success of their solo projects. Obviously if music journalists are following the progress of the album so intently, people care.
Now let’s cross our fingers that this means an actual album.
Probably when he ceases being a great bassist and talented musician?
Dark Side is one of my favorite albums, and I honestly hated the Flaming Lips’ cover of it, but this performance was truly fantastic. They really did a great job making it their own. To be honest, I think the reason I like it so much is that I can barely tell that it’s “Breathe.”
I cannot wait.
I’m sorry, but this is like a hipster Lil Mama
Although, I do admit, that too will be fantastic.
