Every time I listen to "Spottie" I promise myself to pay attention the lyrics but the horn charts and the rhythm distract me.

deej you can rockcrit this shit all you want but if you ask your average outkast fan to name five kast songs from the 90s this woouldn't be one

uhhh yr bringin' a lot of conceptual baggage into this with the "average outkast fan" -- like, has the "average outkast fan" listened to aquemini? if not, which albums have they listened to? or do they just know the singles/hits? and if so, when did they start paying attention? etc etc

haven't you people ever heard of theodor a-goddamn-dorno (bernard snowy), Thursday, 16 September 2010 17:52 (3 years ago) Permalink

i'm just saying this post is otm - i just doubt that people who were buying outkast albums around this time (among whom i can't count myself admittedly - i was like seven) are gonna be like ohhh yeah you know what i think when i think outkast? that seven minute horn song with almost no rapping! (to paraphrase whiney again)

k3vin k., Thursday, 16 September 2010 17:57 (3 years ago) Permalink

i mean we all agree the song is pretty rad tho

k3vin k., Thursday, 16 September 2010 17:58 (3 years ago) Permalink

maybe it's not the "average outkast fan"'s pick (whoever they may be), but it won the aquemini poll on ILX, and considering that's the biggest of their 90s album, it being the critics pick from aquemini doesn't seem that scanners.

da croupier, Thursday, 16 September 2010 18:03 (3 years ago) Permalink

it's also on that big boi and dre presents comp, which suggests its not exactly a deep album cut

da croupier, Thursday, 16 September 2010 18:04 (3 years ago) Permalink

can't we just accept that Pitchfork took some critical/fan favorites whose esteem has raised over time (whether everyone realized it) over the obvious pop hits?

da croupier, Thursday, 16 September 2010 18:09 (3 years ago) Permalink

NO

juggalo iglesias (HI DERE), Thursday, 16 September 2010 18:09 (3 years ago) Permalink

see if Pitchfork had just opened the list up to more than one song per artist then this discussion needn't have happened...

I would like to request an argument over DJ Shadow's Midnight in a Perfect World, which has been badly neglected itt.

Gorecki or Go Home (Paul in Santa Cruz), Thursday, 16 September 2010 18:32 (3 years ago) Permalink

whatever happened to that guy

da croupier, Thursday, 16 September 2010 18:36 (3 years ago) Permalink

I'm guessing "grad school"

juggalo iglesias (HI DERE), Thursday, 16 September 2010 18:37 (3 years ago) Permalink

argument: DJ Shadow's Midnight in a Perfect World does not exist.

i wish them hell and happiness (Drugs A. Money), Thursday, 16 September 2010 18:40 (3 years ago) Permalink

according to wikipedia he's an avatar on DJ Hero, working on a new album and playing shows in Antwerp. Good for him!

da croupier, Thursday, 16 September 2010 18:56 (3 years ago) Permalink

You missed the "DJ Shadow sneaks his own records into shops in Hungary" story then I take it?

Eejit Piaf (Noodle Vague), Thursday, 16 September 2010 18:59 (3 years ago) Permalink

Allegedly his latest track

Samples from Gary Numan?

Tuomas, it tells you on the page

About the Artist
Mickey Hart, best known for his work with The Grateful Dead, has collected and performed on many unusual percussion instruments found throughout the world. He has put both traditional and little-known instruments to new and unexpected uses in his own compositions. At the same time, he has worked diligently to preserve the wisdom of ancient musical cultures through his recordings of indigenous artists. His research into the ritualistic roots of percussion is chronicled in his 1990 book, 'Drumming at the Edge of Magic'. In 1969, Henry Wolff and Nancy Hennings traveled to India and Nepal where they studied with the Kagyu branch of Tibetan Buddhism and discovered the transcendent music of the Tibetan bells. In 1972, they became the first Western artists to make use of the then unknown Asian instruments in a 20th century Western idiom. The resulting album, Tibetan Bells, led to a succession of recordings featuring these instruments.

I assume you have heard the grateful dead?

btw these arguments still going?

pfunkboy (Herman G. Neuname), Thursday, 16 September 2010 19:22 (3 years ago) Permalink

even the P&J arguments dont last this long. Pitchfork must be really special to posters on ILM

Midnight In A Perfect World is gorgeous, it's one of the few tracks on Endtroducing that's aged well.
