I got a question: why they hate on me?
but I love it with equal fervor.
"Why am I listen to this when I could be listening to Wavves?"
given he's Women's biggest cheerleader on here.
...has inspired me to get back into a band. My family would be so proud if somebody said that about me.
I just find it completely devoid of meaning as a criticism.
Coke Machine Glow have reviewed Public Strain too. Well, i say "review" - its more an essay on indie rock:http://www.cokemachineglow.com/record_review/5678/women-publicstrain-2010
'These aren’t Brooklyn hipsters dancing, it’s their dancing pixels.'
It's also credited to two writers...
That quote is a reference back to the earlier mention of the film Rachel Getting Married which the writer posits symbolises the indie-ification of wider culture. Keep up Lukowski!
that I'm not indie enough for this job
It just comes across as a word idiots and philistines use... not that there isn't ever cause to use it or anything.
not really a huge fan of Women, but this review is awful, really. I don't even know what this means: "And while comparing one act to another is usually a cop out, who really needs Women when we can listen to something else? Do they add anything?"
didn't make it through the CMG review... couldn't understand the relevance of the indie/hip-hop comparison, the phrase "post-indie rock indie" is one of the stupidest things I have ever read.
Noripcord are still going?? I remember trying to find them not long ago when there was a discussion on here of the "worst review ever". Seriously, if you can find it, read their review of the first CYHSY. Or, don't.
Cba to actually click that link anyway, I assume it's just an overlong spleen-venting in which the reviewer tries to be funny? I've genuinely never understood why, if you don't like a record, you'd waste more than about 3 lines reviewing it.
IT IS NEITHER AS GOOD AS THE FANS WOULD HAVE YOU BELIEVE, NOR AS BAD AS THE DETRACTORS MAKE OUT.
I HAVE SPOKEN.
