of course i am! in the home straight for album-of-the-year honours, three albums have distanced themselves from the pack by some way, one of which is paris.

i was going to bump this thread to talk about the second single 'nothing in this world' and its wonderfully cheesy video, but feared you would all be too nasty about her :(

Enrique - I'm still listening to this!

i can't tell what's more sad: that the lex isn't dead from suicide now, or after the holidays.

hstencil (hstencil), Wednesday, 22 November 2006 10:34 (8 years ago) Permalink

i would respond to that but i'm afraid i've never noticed you before. there seem to be a lot of american posters who are into trying to look hard on the internet, and they all seem fairly interchangeable & pathetic to me.

I'm still listening to this. Still in my top 3 albums of the year.

is anyone anticipating the new Baaderonixx? (baaderonixx), Wednesday, 22 November 2006 13:20 (8 years ago) Permalink

I'm still not convinced, either by the original or by the DM retool.

is this a real person or a joke?

my favourite on the album is def 'not leaving without you' now - it is so heart-burstingly optimistic and excited. "i wanna know what you dream about! i wanna know what you're thinkin' now!" total headrush.

The Lex (The Lex), Wednesday, 22 November 2006 13:43 (8 years ago) Permalink

HAHAHAHAHA!

Right above the blurb about Paris' colourful 'live' performance is one entitled Yoga Helped Aniston Recover From Pitt Split

I read it as Yoda Helped Aniston Recover From Pitt Split

"Get over him you will, young Jeni"

That bridge of the song you quote Lex, ie, the "rap", is my favorite part, the rest I'm not so wild about. I think 'Nothing in this World' is definitely my fave.

is anyone anticipating the new Baaderonixx? (baaderonixx), Wednesday, 22 November 2006 15:38 (8 years ago) Permalink

yeah the rap is something of a pinnacle - i love the dizzying whirl of the "we can dance! we can dance!" chorus too though.

'screwed' should have been a single! (i suspect that there may be no more singles, sadly.)

hstencil was on some weird shit this morning (just before his flight to England lol)

I know this is beside the point, but even if I could bring myself to like any of this album, I find it hard to believe anyone would part with $$$ to support anything Miss "I deserve a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame" does.

But hey, that's just me.

shorty (shorty), Wednesday, 22 November 2006 16:00 (8 years ago) Permalink

I would be staggered if many people on this thread had paid for the album.

Tom (Groke), Wednesday, 22 November 2006 16:03 (8 years ago) Permalink

Good point Tom.

shorty (shorty), Wednesday, 22 November 2006 16:03 (8 years ago) Permalink

we've been through this before, i still can't understand what's so objectionable about paris hilton that people actually admit that even if she'd made a great album their own prejudice would nevertheless override this. as ian penman says (his post is linked somewhere upthread), it's not her, it's you.

The Lex (The Lex), Wednesday, 22 November 2006 16:04 (8 years ago) Permalink

i did not pay for the album but I WOULD HAVE

The Lex (The Lex), Wednesday, 22 November 2006 16:04 (8 years ago) Permalink

We don't buy her - it's as simple as that.

Marcello Carlin (nostudium), Wednesday, 22 November 2006 16:08 (8 years ago) Permalink

I don't see what's so objectionable about people's own prejudices overriding them recognising a great album, though, Lex. It's their loss (or not, if being into PH's music is going to cause them mental anguish).

Tom (Groke), Wednesday, 22 November 2006 16:10 (8 years ago) Permalink

It's not a great album.

Marcello Carlin (nostudium), Wednesday, 22 November 2006 16:12 (8 years ago) Permalink

I don't see what's so objectionable about people's own prejudices overriding them recognising a great album, though, Lex.

they should recognise that it's their own prejudices though! ie it is THEIR problem and very little to do with paris herself.

whether i buy someone is immaterial to whether i get enjoyment out of their music marcello.

The Lex (The Lex), Wednesday, 22 November 2006 16:13 (8 years ago) Permalink

it's not prejudice, it's just contempt.

benrique (Enrique), Wednesday, 22 November 2006 16:16 (8 years ago) Permalink

It's not a great album.

but the lex says it is...

OMG WHO TO TRUST?

2 american 4 u (blueski), Wednesday, 22 November 2006 16:16 (8 years ago) Permalink

I dunno Lex, blindingly obvious point coming up but...I don't hear you acknowledging your preferences as prejudices terribly often.

Tom (Groke), Wednesday, 22 November 2006 16:17 (8 years ago) Permalink

did i already mention Paris album outscores both Fergie and Janet Jackson albums on metacritic? not that it means a great deal but still.

2 american 4 u (blueski), Wednesday, 22 November 2006 16:17 (8 years ago) Permalink

Me. I said the same thing about Transvision Vamp nineteen years ago and I was proved right.

Marcello Carlin (nostudium), Wednesday, 22 November 2006 16:17 (8 years ago) Permalink

better than fergie, you say?

*ears prick up*

benrique (Enrique), Wednesday, 22 November 2006 16:18 (8 years ago) Permalink

You're right, it doesn't mean a great deal.

Marcello Carlin (nostudium), Wednesday, 22 November 2006 16:21 (8 years ago) Permalink

I like the Fergie singles, they're entertainingly brash.

I think the most interesting stuff I've read on Paris has been David Moore's posts on his blog, talking about the assumptions pro AND anti PH critics have been making about how the music must have been made and written.

Tom (Groke), Wednesday, 22 November 2006 16:22 (8 years ago) Permalink

You're absolutely right Lex. It is me.

I have a problem with people who buy their fame.

I have a problem with people with no (or very questionable) talent, but who make claims that they "deserve" fame or respect for what they do. She hasn't earned anything.

If she wasn't such a nasty, spoiled little twit (the vowel of choice for that word is actually an 'a') I wouldn't really have any opinion of her. Unfortunately her media-whoring mouth has made that impossible. Sorry if she rubs me the wrong way dude.

Lex, it is highly clear to the majority of the population that if Paris does have some good sounds on it that Hilton had virtually nothing to do with it. I mean for cryin' out loud, she couldn't even get through a lip-synching event! You're completely entitled to have your opinion, as am I. You might win the popularity contest on this thread, but you know you have a steep climb against the rest of the population.

shorty (shorty), Wednesday, 22 November 2006 16:24 (8 years ago) Permalink

i don't care how the music was made at all, i wouldn't make assumptions about it. or really there isn't time to worry about it, or not if you don't like the music to start with.

benrique (Enrique), Wednesday, 22 November 2006 16:25 (8 years ago) Permalink

That's exactly the problem I have, Tom. I think I just don't like "brash" in pop.

Shorty largely OTM there though the artist "virtually having nothing to do with it" doesn't as a rule bother me that much. With Paris, though, I'm happy to make an exception.

Marcello Carlin (nostudium), Wednesday, 22 November 2006 16:26 (8 years ago) Permalink

good enough for me Marcello.

shorty (shorty), Wednesday, 22 November 2006 16:27 (8 years ago) Permalink

You're right, it doesn't mean a great deal.

what it does suggest is that the whole 'people not taking her seriously as pop star' thing hasn't been so damaging and it's just that the album is deemed average on it's own terms.

2 american 4 u (blueski), Wednesday, 22 November 2006 16:28 (8 years ago) Permalink

among critics at least

2 american 4 u (blueski), Wednesday, 22 November 2006 16:29 (8 years ago) Permalink

I would imagine Hilton has worked very hard to get where she is. I think she is responsible for her own fame, and has therefore 'earned' it (whatever that means).

braveclub (braveclub), Wednesday, 22 November 2006 16:30 (8 years ago) Permalink

i don't think anyone gives a fuck, tbh. it's not boom time for pop music, and her singles were merely 'ech' rather than being abject shit.

benrique (Enrique), Wednesday, 22 November 2006 16:30 (8 years ago) Permalink

And the Queen grew up in a back-to-back terrace in Bolton, right?

Marcello Carlin (nostudium), Wednesday, 22 November 2006 16:31 (8 years ago) Permalink

The Queen was born famous. It's different.

braveclub (braveclub), Wednesday, 22 November 2006 16:31 (8 years ago) Permalink

And Giles and Victoria Coren got where they are today purely through their own efforts.

Marcello Carlin (nostudium), Wednesday, 22 November 2006 16:32 (8 years ago) Permalink

Just as I know the sun will come up tomorrow, I know that Hilton would not have released an album at this juncture in her life if her pockets didn't reach down to hell.

shorty (shorty), Wednesday, 22 November 2006 16:32 (8 years ago) Permalink

True, but she wouldn't be nearly as famous as she is now if she hadn't put considerable effort into it.

braveclub (braveclub), Wednesday, 22 November 2006 16:34 (8 years ago) Permalink

And the sky is green.

Thatcherism was bad enough first time around. We don't want it back, thank you very much.

Marcello Carlin (nostudium), Wednesday, 22 November 2006 16:35 (8 years ago) Permalink

Considerable effort compared to The Simple Life? mebbe.

shorty (shorty), Wednesday, 22 November 2006 16:35 (8 years ago) Permalink

Who said I was advocating Thatcherism?

braveclub (braveclub), Wednesday, 22 November 2006 16:35 (8 years ago) Permalink

i don't care if she's made an effort.

i don't care if she wrote all the songs or none.

i don't even care if it isn't her voice at all.

it'd still be underwhelming.
