"I Care" is pushing it (xpost)

Whitechocolatespacecase (some dude), Wednesday, 18 January 2012 14:29 (2 years ago) Permalink

haha @ the pitchforkreviewsreviews guy:

Bon Iver, James Blake, M83, and Girls. Why aren't our heroes pissing more people off? Why are they so polite?

David Shapiro
Brooklyn, New York

i'm just gonna assume he thought these were gonna be the top 4

To be fair, the woman that called into Sound Opinions thought it was a bad album because there weren't any songs she could add to her workout mix.

Mary Lou Retton could sweat into her leg warmers while jamming to "Love on Top."

"I Care" is the same tempo as "Countdown"!

Our Hero will find adulthood a real chore.

so whoever does @Discographies apparently needs to protect their anonymity and vote under their twitter handle?

"I Care", "Countdown", "End of Time" and "Girls (Run the World)" ARE on my gym mix.

why do we care what someone who called into "sound opinions" had to say about a beyonce album

tyga mother (J0rdan S.), Wednesday, 18 January 2012 14:40 (2 years ago) Permalink

The only reason I brought it up was because it was the first time I was aware of the public's relative dislike of the album. I was all warm and cozy in the ilm lovefest for the album.

Maybe David Shapiro can start a homage blog called Unsound Onions.

NY Times critics back when used to participate in this, but not anymore

They hardly ever filed actual ballots, but we used to be allowed to just pull their votes straight from the Times year-end page, and give the albums 10 points each. Maybe Maura isn't aware of that though.

Anyway, a question for Glenn: How do voters find out their own metalism scores? Mine should be higher than it's ever been no matter what, but I'm curious whether Gentleman's Pistols and Nazareth counted as metal.

And where do we find out which voters were most similar to us? Didn't seem to be in Glenn's ratings last night, but maybe I missed it.

Also curious why Whiney left #10-finishing Shabazz Palaces off his middlebrow rap list way up above. (Are they not considered rap, or did he just miss it? I sort of like that album, but I'm guessing it supports his thesis, either way.)

And finally, does Gunplay live in Ontario, Arizona, or Leeds? "Local" metal bands I voted from all those places each got two votes!

i know that the "point" of commercial music is to generate hits but it never fails to surprise me that so many people equate an album's quality with how successful its singles are

I could not agree with this more, this is such depressing logic.

Seriously, who votes for Drake? (Nicole), Wednesday, 18 January 2012 14:55 (2 years ago) Permalink

I made a Spotify playlist of tracks receiving two mentions because I thought it might be interesting to listen to while I'm at work and figured I might as well share it here.

you capitalized the letters "MID" in the word "Formidable" -- i know in the brain that created "pundneb" that's considered dazzling wordplay but out here it looks like nonsense

I actually have no idea how the band pronounces its name. (In fact, ILXor Jenny and I were just wondering about this the other day.)

Nah, "FOR-mih-duh-bull" is fairly common in English, too. Then there's French ppl.

How does this have any bearing on how the band name is pronounced?

the French are socialists, therefore immune to the charms of P&J.

ok morbz now explain why you spelled "sure" as "shore," is that another delightful linguistic puzzle as rewarding as "forMIDable"?
