Marquis... new [re: Marquis]  

I recommend you dispose any memory of that song at once. Nadya and I are here to help. You can get through this.

Yes indeed, may God have mercy on your soul, Marquis.

I'm Sorry I'm So Sparkly new [re: EuropeanCanon]  

Well, I will grant you that he's an awful rapper. And not even awesomely terrible like Gucci Mane, just plain bad. But the beat is fantastic, and the chorus IS awesomely terrible. That shit is right in my wheelhouse.

Since I'm sure you were all dying to know, yes, I did indeed pick up Sir Lucious Left Foot...The Son of Chico Dusty on Tuesday, along with another front-runner for record of the year, Janelle Monae's The Archandroid, which sounds sort of like what would happen if Stevie Wonder had died in 1976 and his spirit was reborn in the body of a hypertalented high school theater kid. Love, love, love that woman.

Truffle Fries Shuffle new [re: Marquis]  

I've only heard 1/2 of the M.I.A. record so far, and like about 1/2 of it, which is about par for the course for me and her.

Truth be told, I'm still a bit put off by the whole NY Times debacle last month. Not so much the piece itself -- I certainly never had any illusions that she was much more than a provocateur -- but the petty, childlike reaction to criticism left a bad taste.

I listened to all of it this afternoon and can't quite figure out what all the fuss about the girl is about. Admittedly there is a lot of experiment in it but there is also way too little decent tunes or songs. The rougher tracks sound like The Prodigy for girls, the mid-tempo ones are Rhianna for intellectuals. When the song "Caps Lock" came on I thought yeah, now the album part with the good tunes begins but unfortunately it's the last track on it.

It certainly is an album that is different from the currently successful girls pop the likes of Gaga or Rihanna in that it doesn't stick to the commercial recipe of popular beats and hooks with a matching chorus. But on the other hand I find it difficult to imagine going through the whole record again. It's too nervous and trying too hard. Too little moments of fun.

Oh yeah new [re: Remade/Remodeled]  

The Manics are touring Australia in November so I should have a chance to see them properly. And if the new album's shite, I hope they don't play too much of it...

Summer in the Suburbs new [re: ziggfried]  

Critics in Germany have gone apeshit over the Arcade Fire's new album "The Suburbs", praising it as a true milestone. Not being an admirer of the band's albums (and a live performance I have witnessed) I have forced myself to listen to the album a dozen times now and must admit that there is some great music on it. Not throughout but enough to make me like an Arcade Fire album. The title track is the stand-out song on the album: Non of their typical hippiesque hysteria but instead a wonderfully piano driven song with an ingenious chorus and excellent lyrics. Music is rarley getting better than this, one of the best tracks I have heard in 10 years. Or longer.

There is more great music to be found but so is the mediocre to annoying stuff. The tracks featuring the female lead vocalist are dreadful and still too often for my liking they sound like the popmpous art school band of their previous recordings.

But nevertheless this is a partly great and mostly interesting album. And a theme recording about coming from and living in The Suburbs which lyrically never gets embarassing is quite an achievement too.

Heligoland new [re: EJ]  

I finally got hold of Massive Attack's new one and its a pleasant surprise. I say this because the $1 second hand price tag had me thinking there must have been something awfully wrong with it. That plus the stall holder insisting that it was probably designed for the "why generation" and not him. Either way, it sounds very good to me.

My tentative top 3 for 2010:

1. Laurie Anderson: Homeland
2. Crowded House: Intriguer
3. Darren Hanlon: I Will Love You At All
