In reply to:

found the Bjork album boring.

In other words there are at least 51 albums released this year that are more interesting.


My bad! I thought you liked Björk. I thought you liked Volta. I thought you might have forgotten to add it to your list.

And my comments below aren't necessarily directed at you, Stu, just what I'm feeling in general.

I'm surprised that more Bowie fans, and fans of music in general, aren't Björk fans. If Bowie is the man who fell to earth, Björk is definitely the woman who fell to earth in my opinion. And her music is far more interesting than what Bowie has done in the last 10 years. Again, just my opinion.


Trying to navigate TW reminds me of what it was like having dial-up service.

I do like Bjork. i just think Volta, with the exception of Earth Intruders, is dull in comparison with her earlier work.

In reply to:

> Feist – The Reminder

I have that other Feist album named "Let It Die" which is a nice record for lazy sunday mornings. But it wouldn't win a prize in my contest.


I have a feeling that I've heard Let It Die and I was very underwhelmed. However I've been listening to The Reminder over the weekend and it is quite lovely.

The Polaris prize is awarded in the next 24 hours, it'll be interesting to see which of the many intriguing Canadian artists walks away with it.

BTW, EJ, you're German aren't you? I love a German band called The Robocop Kraus and acquired their new album over the weekend and it's tremendous. Do you like them?

New Foo Fighters album rocks. Their best album since There Is Nothing Left To Lose. Dave Grohl is just a god among men.

God have mercy, you're a hopeless guitar player! You even make ME feel better you son of a bitch!

Jens! new [re: sonofsilence]  

Unless something drastic happens on the music front, Night Falls Over Kortedala is the finest collection of pop songs that anyone will hear this year. After two spins I can honestly say that Lekman has topped his previous efforts and he has a genuine master piece in his hands. Some of the arrangements reminded me of the more subtle moments of Scott Walker's early career.

Fuck this, I'd rather be listening to the album instead of writing this!

I don't get along with myself
And I'm not too keen on anyone else

Stu, please change your signature. It's fucking up my searches for people talking about me and it makes you look like an obsessed fanboi - which you are, but you've always at least tried to hide it.

Thanks! You're the best!

Kelley! new [re: RabbitFighter]  

Not sure if anyone's mentioned Kelley Stolz's "Beneath the Branches". I haven't heard the whole album, but have long been addicted to the single "Ever Thought of Coming Back" for quite some time now. Considering I'm not a huge Beach Boys fan, that surprises me. Great harmony, great pop tune.

Re: Kelley! new [re: SoulLoveChild]  

Another excellent 2007 album that I forgot to mention is The Stage Names by Austin’s Okkervil River which includes the song Plus Ones which references several other songs with numerical titles including 96 Tears, 99 Luftballoons, 50 Ways to Leave Your Lover, Eight Miles High and others, except with one number added (hence the title Plus Ones). It also includes the line:

You would probably die before you shot up 9 miles high
Your eyes dilated as light played upon the sight
Of TVC16 as it sings you goodnight


Interestingly they also cover the Beach Boys. As Wikipedia explains:

"John Allyn Smith Sails" combines the life of confessional poet John Berryman (originally John Allyn Smith) and the infamous boat wreck of the John B. Sloop. The song ends with a cover of The Beach Boys' "Sloop John B".

Also, at fan Lou Reed’s request, Okkervil River were his support and therefore the opening act of the Bowie-curated High Line festival this year.
