now, what are your most controversial musical opinions?
that The Fall are pretty crap.
Though to me that isn't controversial at all.
btw ^ these are wrong
i mean radiohead
especially Kid-A era Radiohead.
but I never thought that solo album would be good. His new band is pretty bad though. Still a good singer, but the music is a bit poo
the only good bit was when they played jane's addiction songs. Why his wife is in the band I have no idea. She just did motwon dance moves dressed up like miss america in a shiny swimsuit. Bizarre.
which Jane's songs did they do?
made some fucking great albums.
were better than The Beatles.
They used to be amazing though. (H)
listening to an album by The National
Bjork is shit and annoying
Mike Diver has a really irritating voice
Analysing my above troll post in the cold light of incoming sobriety, point 1 was "annoyed" as I really hated Boxer.
Point 2 stands as I just dislike Bjork.
Point 3 was just nasty as I'm actually gay for Mike's voice.
Fucking Vox Populi, if one counts "populi" as being the over-educated voice of the home-counties-stroke-wealthy-white-collar-of-the-north of this fine country.
I'm pretty sure this is actually recorded fact, though.
that Foxx has some ugly thighs.
makes me feel really angry if i have to listen to it for too long. load of crap.
It's just up to each individual to decide whether or not they enjoy it.
Say something is good or bad is bollocks. They've done what they wanted, perfectly.
Is a turgid pile of donkey shite that nobody will give a fuck about after it stops being cool to namedrop.
but it's certainly not worth the "OMG" hype it has received from this site...
jazz fusion wank
Either that or I don't understand it.
on hipsters, I fucking SWEAR IT.
That said, the more you listen to them, the more you get used to the stupidity. Atlas could be a good song if it wasn't so utterly daft in execution.
is a poor mans Rick Astley
And Jeff is Never Gonna Give you Up. Not while everyone keeps buying the achingly pointless live/demo/un-released/b-sides/dictaphone/toilet recodings!
were better than the pixies
and in turn, future of the left are better than mclusky
i know cos i've got the album ;-)
is better than McLusky Do Dallas surely?
Boring, unimaginative twee drivel that's been done before and better.
But I love it. It's de-sensitising me from knee jerk reactions towards people who rubbish bands I hold so closely to my chest. *Deep breath*
are the worst thing since cancer. That is my personal and perhaps controversial opinion..
Artic Monkeys come fourth after Little Man Tate.
are better than My Bloody Valentine.
are worth listening to.
listening to slowdive, i disagree. but when i do, i agree wholeheartedly.
do you like Moose, BG?
precisely one decent song
'Atlas' by Battles is the worst song I've heard this year. I'd rather listen to Kate Nash.
'Alt Country' is the single worst disease affecting music today.
Pet Shop Boys > Joy Division
Chumbawamba are fucking brilliant, you just all haven't realised it yet
just quality. "i get knocked down..." brilliant
invents a device to poke people in the eye over the internet, the better.
I haven't listened to the rest of that supposedly good album because that song is so bad.
I really don't see what the fuss is about Battles or that awful song.
Crowded House are awesome
Can I have my cocoa now mum?
On what fucking planet?
Here's a litmus test for discovering lying cunts:
Ask them 'Do you like Crowded House?'
If they answer 'no', they're a lying cunt. Never fails.
by Yes is one of the best pieces of music ever written.
I bought this a few months ago, and am yet to listen to it.
If it tops Relayer it'll be pretty awesome.
is fucking dogshit sandwich, especially that one you really like. They're the most dogshit sandwich of all; served on an AIDS plate with a little flag in the top and some pissy salad on the side.
except the fall are the best band ever...
the stone roses
A lot of noise and drone stuff is pretty pointless dirge.
as much as a lot of indie-rock is pretty pointless dirge. Some stuff always riseth to the top though.
All of Razorlight is pretty pointless dirge!
same with any genre
No it isn't, you drug-addled mudcovered clunge brain, it's just a bunch of cunts in a field with far too many flags, all of whom are too scared to say that they're tired of trudging through shit or walking eight miles to the next stage to see a terrible performance by some world music superstar.
nobody even looked excited to be there! Granted the bands they were watching were for the most part shite, but they're supposed to be having fun! Not just standing there with gormless looks on their faces. You can do that at home.
I can't listen to a The Smiths song without dying of boredom.
are boring and massively overrated.
I just don't 'get' it.
is cack. And i have seen him live. And i wasnt impressed.
is having 3 sonic youth albums and not really liking any of them, some of it sounds like a bad Ash (a badder Ash)
its the lyrics.. Some of them are just painful
are the shittest band ever!
Hard-Fi are really good
The new Kate Nash song is also really good.
Loveless is a very dull album.
this is the first one thats actually annoyed me
feel honoured. Ive gone off Hard-Fi recently though
And I love that Bodyrox track.
than listen to battles.
I feel like i'm getting a kicking, but it's okay, because everyone else is too.
Arcade fire are incredibly overrated.
Adore is far and away the best Pumpkins album.
I prefer Songs from Northern Britain to Grand Prix.
I think 'Fold you hands child' is the best B+S album.
I hate 65DOS; just sounds like bad metal riffs over some laptop beats.
I hate get cape wear cape fly - his awful music, his awful face, his awful pseudonym and the fact that he NEEDS one and the fact that every review i've ever seen says 'GCWCF, AKA Sam Duckworth', rendering his stage name obsolete and annoying. Emo whining twat.
i never even noticed that. I saw them supporting Mono - two bands that show how post-rock can be ace, or shit.
- The Rolling Stones
- non-'Nebraska' Bruce Springsteen
- Most of the songs from 'London Calling'
- 'Super Ae'
- 'Hunky Dory'
- 'Silent Shout'
'In Rainbows is the best thing ever, better than anything, better than sex!!!'
These sorts of reactions the day it got released put me off hearing it EVER.
about four years now.
It's equivalent to nails being scratched down a black board for me.
Bowie, Nirvana, Battles even, Cobain.. like, wtf?
Errr... no. WRONG WRONG WRONG.
Her voice is still irritating... Sorry...
is actually rather good.
oh hang on.
and most reggae in general does nothing for me whatsoever
the big racist
Jamie Cullum. He puts a whole new and original slant on Jazz music. It would be great if he teamed up with Jules Holland for a honky tonk piano jam.
How about defending Las Ketchup and Doop eh?
In fact there is scarely a novelty summer hit that isn't great -
Mambo No 5
Anything by the Vengaboys
Beirut are crap. Green Day's last album was great. The Scissor Sisters have a surprising number of good songs.
But it makes me happy to be in the company of other people who think that Radiohead are the biggest pile of donkey shit going.
I need say no more...
are pretty bobbins.
Neutral Milk Hotel - shite
Newsom freaks me out. Sounds like the ghost of a dead child.
Mine: I don't get the Smiths
wanky drivel for anoraks. The intro to Grass is terrible. Also Broken Social Scene and all who sail in her are boring, dull, smug, self concious twaddle.
that's almost exactly what I think of NMH. ;)
must ...stop ...myself ...from ...being ...incredibly ...smarmy
BSS are pretty bad.
I just have a soft spot for the title of this thread.
Seriously. Completely dull.
and see if im missing something, but im not so sure. Every track almost sounds like something that could appear on one of those ghastly "chill out" albums.
I may even do one thing I have never done before: get a refund on a cd
and i need to be fair to it
but that one time was at midnight in the dark with headphones on, and it was so hopelessly predictable. the first album was at least unique, this one is just the same thing with some garage vocals on it. left me cold.
It is a vile pit of seething shite.
Great apart from that.
but you're probably right.
The first one was, after all.
well, im listening again and it seems a bit better. Its quite nice if its on in the background and youre in the mood for it, but i wouldnt listen to it "properly". 6 or 7/10
still, all the people that are going nuts over it are silly, silly billies.
wrote some truelly average songs, just played them well
I find Deerhoof are utter utter shite. I'd rather have a penis lodged in my ear than a headphone and that garbage coming out of it.
Ok I'm done now.
the Beatles are one of the most overrated bands of all time
MMISL's song titles are way more interesting than their music
are really rubbish too.
- some people have to stop pretending to love Hadouken!
- Kasabian's first record is something I don't mind listening to.
- Regina Spektor's first couple of albums are a bit pretentious and stupid.
I never liked DFA 1979.
Also haven't been able to get into the Flaming Lips.
I can, however, take limited does of Embrace, Stereophonics and Kaiser Chiefs.
Bob Dylan's shit. The Forward Russia singer makes them unlistenable to me because he sounds like a damsel that's just found out it's daughter is in distress.
of montreal, islands etc is very hit or miss. Mostly miss
have some good songs, and u2 kicked ass in the 80's
a uncompromisingly strong hatred for The Beatles, ABBA (can't believe this hasn't been up yet!) and Muse embarrass me beyond belief - well, maybe just the new album, my face basically fell off from cringing - which is a shame cos Showbiz was ace years ago..
Jo Whiley is a goddess.
oh and i've walked out of pubs, parties, clubs and shops after hearing fucking Dexy's Midnight Runners do THAT song which makes me die inside - people don't seem to take me seriously and sing it at me. they need to fall down a well.
that could be considered anything better than 'decent'.
And Be Here Now is still great!
