  1. Well, I guess I'm out of my mind, then.
  2. In terms of arrangement, "The Numbers" reminds me of another Godrich production, Beck's "Sea Change". This can only be a good thing. I'm pretty well taken by the entire album, though.
  3. This is still even debatable? I like the first couple Oasis albums, and a few thing here and there after those, but Blur has pulled away in a big way.
  4. Beautifully put, Josh. Like you, I can't help but draw some parallels between this album and D'Angelo's from last year, but this feels like more of an emotional response to the failings of our culture where D'Angelo's album feel a bit more like an intellectual one.
  5. I'm just referring to the physical release of Vulnicura.
  6. I enjoyed this album, but I can completely sympathize with the notion that these lyrics don't make a lot of sense for a 56 year old. From her catalog, nothing touches Like a Prayer with me, but I think the album is at least as good as Music, anyway.
  7. March is a very busy month for new releases. Bjork gets personal, Sufjan returns to simplicity (it seems so far from songs that have been released), and Kendrick gets revolutionary. Can't wait!
  8. Yeah, I sort of wanted to buy the vinyl album partly for large artwork, but I really don't think I need that blown up further. Eyesore.
  9. http://www.npr.org/event/music/388196234/live-tuesday-sleater-kinney-in-concert You're welcome.
  10. A lot of good ones mentioned here. I like Dolorean's "Country Clutter" as a break-up/kiss-off sort of song.
  11. "Blank Space" was stuck in my head for days. I rather like it, but I'm sure it's aided by the visual accompaniment of the video, which is just funny.
  12. He seems to know a lot, but to what end? The vast majority of critics who have just as much background knowledge continue to rave. I'm sticking with "instant classic" myself.
  13. I've listened to it more, to see if I've cooled on it, and I haven't. I think it may well be a masterpiece - not a term I use often or loosely.
  14. I can't stop listening to this album. I should get to other things, but there's a world here to explore.
  15. Yeah, I don't know enough about the genre to say much beyond a basic response in how the music makes me feel. But, I enjoy some electronic music, and this feels about as endearingly human as it gets.
