I Hate Music, is Superchunk's previous work Majesty Shredding's dark twin. It's similarly aggressive--often moreso (see "Staying Home")--and every bit as energetic. It reflects the joys of a life spent immersed in music ("Me & You & Jackie Mittoo," "Trees of Barcelona"), but there's a dark undercurrent as well. I Hate Music is an album about love more than anything else: love of life, love of living, love of people, and yeah, love of music. It defies its own title so completely and diligently that it never even seems like a fair fight: There's no pain this deep or yearning this severe without the type of love earned over a lifetime. That song and its ten companions can't relive the past or resurrect those lost, but they can keep them close enough to see and hear and celebrate.
