Had hole day of listening to blondes album. Great and not really featured in any other best of lists
Glad you enjoyed it and thanks for taking the time to say something nice (which almost never happens)
is a fine sentiment and one that an awful lot of people would do better to live by in general but sadly leads to rather one-sided discussion on a music board. That said, it's true that for all the work that gets put into this site, the gripes often seem a lot louder than the praise which DiS deserves in spades; not just for years of decent editorial content but the honesty and generosity that allows us to question the content and its providers via the forum.
We might disagree on the merits of Blondes but this is the best damn site I know of where I can do so.
Is by promoting their content when you complain about it in your blog or on social networks. I'm glad that this site is about discourse (oh...)
...my top music sites, DiS would win hands down every year: most reflective of my personal tastes yet always offers me something new that i might have otherwise missed/ignored, solid reviewing, good articles, great forum. no other site ticks all these boxes. i wasn't convinced by the voting for the #1 spot this year but at least it was interesting. all in all, top job Sean & DiS.
just call me Capt. Brownsword.
...Blondes was my #6 record of the year.
but i've just stuck this on spotify and it's making my wee wooden Sony bookshelf speakers have a right workout. BASS.
Is my DIS discovery of the year.
It's comments like this that make all the endless abuse and the personal insults worthwhile.
