1. I Wish It Was Christmas Today by Julian Casablancas
2. Grave? Shovel! Let's Go by Ten Grand
3. Get On by Tellison.
And it was one of the best live music experiences I had that year. Really, really amazing.
And he was sort of The Talented One, in my opinion. But that's mainly because he wrote all the sad/slow ones which was always more my thing.
Which is a great poodlename.
Yeah, me too. In fact I'm pretty sure it was the song that hooked me in.
But I'd grumble that the original In Medias Res is possibly the best thing they've ever done and blah blah fanboy blah. I'd have given it an 8 but I clearly liked the final two tracks a lot more than William. The vinyl's really lovely too, the cover art might be the best of the RIB-related releases.
Although this is atually a pretty well written review so I'm not going to be a twat about it, but I think it's a fantastic album.
I really wanted Fireworks off the Drake album but that's suddenly vanished off UK Spotify, so, The-Dream instead.
I would've pushed for an 8 as well (noting that I consider SoS a 10 or at least a 9) but then, I think I like Home a LOT more than Mr Wheeler. A lot lot more.
This is wonderful. I really love the final third of Home/What You Need (SOMEBODY SORT OUT THESE GODDAMN SONG TITLE MIXUPS. I think this has the best vocal melodies of any LCD album. That big synth drop in Dance Yrself Clean is incredible, as is the entire of Change.
For legal, contractual type reasons.
(As well as conceptual ones but I suppose that's less of a concrete thing)
In more relevant news: I am superfuckingexcited about this album.
This is AMAZING
I do love me some EOTR.
Of people who would absolutely be buying this if they had lots of money.
I'll almost certainly be going to the Birmingham date so long as it doesn't sell out in the next 30 days.
who thinks his first solo album is a LOT better than this one. Damn guitars.
"but does anyone remember a song since ‘F&%£ the pain away’?"
Yes, "Two Guys (For Every Girl)" which is the best thing she's ever done.
I think mainly this comes down to how I think My Body Is a Cage is the best thing they've done so far.
Really? Am I alone in thinking it's better than Funeral?
kind of hyperridiculous journalism, Morely's always fun.
I just wish I cared about Patrick Wolf a bit more.
Nicky Wire sings lead on at least one song on this.
I look forward to the arguments on ForeverDelayed
Love etc, Pandemonium and The Way It Used To Be are fantastic but the rest... Yeah. A bit weak.
Also I don't think I like any of the songs on this as much as I like "Integral".
Guitars are RUBBISH.
Ok, guitars are alright, but Kid A is probably my favourite Radiohead record.
But this is a pretty damn entertaining review
but it's nowhere near as good as any of their previous work
This sounds amazing. WANT WANT WANT.
He was actually saying he LIKED how she'd switched the genders of the charachters from First Love. He was not being a dick.
Film at 11.
and worked well.
But then I totally love Emmy so I can't really be objective about such matters.
But other than that: Great articles. I do love the Low.
to discuss how BRILLIANT Single Ladies is. Yes, maybe it IS pointless by now, but come on. SO. GOOD.
which are so painfully shit I don't think I can listen to them.
I officially turned out to quite like the Bon Iver record after my mother played the entire thing on a car journey so I can't even whine about that being boring.
THIS LIST IS GOOD.
to their MySpace, and I rather enjoyed it. THIS REVIEW: IT WORKS.
really enjoyed this. A lot of good albums recommended and with entertaining commentary.
= The Correct Answer
is obscene. Too much awesomeness. TOO MUCH.
It'd be amazing if he followed through on the Laura Marling beef. I want folkpop diss tracks!
Has been used online to reffer to Jenny Lewis for a few years now. I AM SORRY DiS.
I am also sorry that the one Rough at 30 gig i'm going to is the one without Jeffrey. Bah.
You... you should probably do something about this before you GIVE ME A FUCKING HEART ATTACK YOU BASTetc.
That woman really is wonderful.
The song that The Mountain Goats did for Super Tuesday: http://weekendamerica.publicradio.org/display/web/2008/01/31/mtngoats/
They're called "The NME Awards" though.
AND with Pitchfork's review. How often do you get to say that?
I like playing Guitar Hero because I am completely shit at guitar and can't play it properly but I can do ok at Guitar Hero on easy and feel awesome. This is not a joke poking fun at Guitar Hero players, this is why I play Guitar Hero and find it enjoyable.
that the Birmingham date won't sell out before I have the money to buy a ticket [which will be in like, two weeks].
SEEMS UNLIKELY THOUGH
Ignore him. He called you motherfucks and everything.
YEp. Definitely. Yes.
What you mean is, if you delete all traces of the mess that is "Ares" then it's an 8, as it is, a 6.
None of these are really near me which is a shame because they were EXCELLENT at Birmingham in July. Perhaps I'll try and get to Nottingham.
