that seems like a really good excuse to post this

Lol u guys! :) Kerr is otm in that most of the metal ranks is filled out by the hidden army of lurkers (I know you're out there, Magnus B!) who may or may not be allowed to vote in the big poll.

Also I voted for Pistol Annies; that was a really good record. It might sound like Dolly Parton's Greatest Hits but its soul lies somewhere between Cut and Nebraska...

oh yea also: I'm a bit skeptical that Bon Iver or Adele are going to show up today. I mean, anything's possible--and I don't remember if the #1 P4k album of the year has never not shown up--but I think Tuneyards and Yuck will probably be the worst of it. Adele had probably the biggest song of the year and she couldn't manage to make the tracks poll at all, so I wouldn't worry...

that 'never' should be 'ever' :/

I wish it sounded like Dolly! I couldn't get past the production to give a shit what they were saying.

Everyone's allowed to vote btw...we do ask for a username in the cause of transparency but I don't check that it corresponds to a registered user.

xp I still don't get that complaint! I think the whole old-timey sound gives the record a kind of edge, in ways that I am just not talented enough to delineate...

Drugs A. Money, Thursday, 2 February 2012 15:01 (2 years ago) Permalink

I didn't hear it as old-timey, which is probably on me not them. I dig old-timey.

That "Cortez" youtube is pretty amazing.

EZ Snappin, Thursday, 2 February 2012 15:04 (2 years ago) Permalink

Isn't it? I think the lights add a lot. Also, Bruce: more loops and wordless noises pls.

Re: PA -- I love old timey, and I made the mistake of watching a Pistol Annies video instead of just listening to the song.

La Lechera, Thursday, 2 February 2012 15:06 (2 years ago) Permalink

I'm just going by what kjb and emil.y were saying (or at least what I thought they were saying) more than anything EZ...

I dont...get your complaint either?

Drugs A. Money, Thursday, 2 February 2012 15:07 (2 years ago) Permalink

iirc it was really glossy. Not to my liking, and that impression made me not like the song because...I am a feeble minded monkey?

La Lechera, Thursday, 2 February 2012 15:11 (2 years ago) Permalink

It's old-timey instrumentation with a bright. unnatural sheen (to my ears, at least). That's what I meant by production; I would bet they would be much more my thing live where the mix and mastering wouldn't have that gloss.

EZ Snappin, Thursday, 2 February 2012 15:12 (2 years ago) Permalink

xpost, obv!

I think La Lechera and I both were bothered by the same thing

EZ Snappin, Thursday, 2 February 2012 15:13 (2 years ago) Permalink

but we should probably take the conversation elsewhere and leave this for metal

EZ Snappin, Thursday, 2 February 2012 15:13 (2 years ago) Permalink

well I spent most of my year being forced to listen to country music radio, so the productions sounds really understated to me.

Like I'm listening to "Beige" right now, and it still sounds to me like a dolled up version of one of the slower cuts on American Beauty

I mean, this is all subjective opinion--I mean, I never expected it to not have pop sheen, so I wasn't disappointed...

Drugs A. Money, Thursday, 2 February 2012 15:17 (2 years ago) Permalink

^oh sorry yeah another thread

Drugs A. Money, Thursday, 2 February 2012 15:17 (2 years ago) Permalink

Dolly should do a metal covers album.

Armand Schaubroeck Ratfucker, Thursday, 2 February 2012 16:10 (2 years ago) Permalink

haha yeah

Drugs A. Money, Thursday, 2 February 2012 16:12 (2 years ago) Permalink

Finally got around to listening to Corrupted - wasn't really bothered about the 1st 2 tracks, but the 3rd track is awesome.

Wittled down the Top 125 to about 20 I might like, of course by the time I've listened to those it'll be 2013 and Kerr will be moaning at me for not voting in Metal Poll 2012.

like you did last year

Could I be a pain in the arse and ask someone to c&p the results for this? Can't display all messages without serious browser weirdness.
