Archaelogists is a pretty cool song. To be honest it sounds kind of pre-packaged to me though.

I agree, and I usually don't dig that in the least but it's just so eventful and polished.

Jacked the groove from "Ride a White Swan" - which in my book is an A+++++++.

my itunes lists 1309 different artists, so i'll try to keep this brief... Top 10 favorite bands: libertines babyshambles arctic monkeys coldplay velvet underground the clash beck u2 the sonics gomez Music I absolutely won't listen to: country, or tween pop (avril, simpson, kelly clarkson) Favorite Punk album: the clash - london calling Favorite Hip-Hop album: jay z - black album Favorite Electronic album: moby - play Favorite Pop album: coldplay - a rush of blood to the head Best Dance Party album: bloodhound gang - hooray for boobies Most overrated band: band would have to be dave matthews, all his songs are the same person would be dane cook, I just find him annoying and stupid... Guilty pleasure: t.A.T.u, I could watch that music video (doesn't matter if the sounds on or not) for hours...

Best rapper out now, I go with Ghostface plus the guy is like the Christopher Walken of rap song cameos.

Lately I've been listening to the latest offerings from:
Mars Volta
John Legend
Ghostface

Stillmatic was almost as good as Illmatic and Hip Hop is Dead is also a pretty good album. I'll conceede Cam is much but I still say he's better than Wayne.

I've been listening to Boom Bye Bye and Champion by Buju Banton all day today, makes me nostalgic for childhood and the Jamaican parade.

Stillmatic is pretty underrated, that's probably my favorite Nas Album. Hip Hop is dead was cool, but I actually liked "Street Disciple" just as much, especially the song with his father, "Bridging the Gap".

I am in no way a Lil Wayne fan, but Cameron, along with the rest of Dipset, annoy the sh*t out of me.

Had to pleb it and go purchase the new Battles LP today. I'm about halfway through it now and I'm still not sure whether it's boring or not. Anyone else that's heard the album (not just Atlas)? Edit: So, I've worked my way through the entire album and while I recognize it as a good album (Leyendecker is one of my favorite songs so far this year), I think it's too upbeat for me. Ha! This is the same thing that happened with the Dan Deacon record. I popped it in and was like, "This is way too upbeat for my current state." I dunno'.

^yeah, battles is cool (for those who don't know, they're an indie instrumental band)...haven't listened to their whole LP yet, but Race:In sounds pretty freaking cool... I've been listening to a lot of biggie recently, and just finished listening to no cars go by arcade fire, it's a fucking incredible song, if you don't have it, download it now...

I love that song. Do you have the original or the one on Neon Bible?

New Wilco has yet to be removed from the CD player or off rotation on the iPod...

I've heard a little bit of it and was pretty put off. I have the actual CD sitting in cellophane on my desk. I know my brother purchased the album the other day and he hasn't said anything about it yet. I don't know what that means.

By the way, everyone check out out Black Moth Super Rainbow's Dandelion Gum. They're a brilliant electro-folk band out of Pittsburgh and a great group of guys. Think, a really warm, backwoods Boards of Canada (I hate using that comparison because it's being used in all the write-ups, but it's just so apt) intertwined with Floydian cosmics. Linkth:

MySpace Page
Pitchfork Review

Also, I think I "got" The Battles. I was told that I'd need to give the album about five listens to let it grow on me, which is ridiculous in my mind, but yeah, it's definitely a grower. Plus, the second half of the album is much, much more of an abstraction, which I dig. I'd say it's earned a spot on my "Albums of the Year" list so far.

Wilco fans are an odd bunch...I think its some of their best work to date...but I've read a bunch of heady bash reviews of it all over the various review sites and blogs. Hard to comment on the album if you don't even give it a proper listen It really is quite good.

I don't think I can describe myself as a Wilco fan. I like all of Summerteeth, half of Being There, half of YHF, and that's about it.
post #914 of 1048
Yeah, I'd say you are more of a Uncle Tupelo fan...have you heard the new album?
post #915 of 1048
YHF is one of my favorite albums of all-time, while Summerteeth was OK and A Ghost Is Born was mundane to the max. So I wouldn't call myself a fan, though what Wilco has done is pretty important to me. Uncle Tupelo is decent also.
