Surprise! Surprise! New Radiohead Drops a Day Early!

February 18, 2011


Ok all you hipsters and people who enjoy well made inventive music, go download the new Radiohead offering here. I urge you to fight the natural instinct and actually pay for this one. Why? First of all, they’re an awesome band that has given us some of the best music in the past 20 years. Secondly, they let you pay what ever the hell you wanted for the last one…yes, even nothing. Fourth of all, it’s friggin cheap(although I’m a nerd and paid for the vinyl since I have hopes of purchasing a record player in the next year and would like something to play on it).

10 Gripes About Rolling Stone’s 100 Greatest Albums of the Decade

December 16, 2009


Gripes about Rolling Stone's Top 100 Albums of the DecadeSo Rolling Stone recently published its 100 Best Albums of the Decade: The most important music of the 00’s as chosen by more than 100 artists, critics and industry insiders.  As few of you likely remember, I love lists.  Who doesn’t, really?

On top of that, I’ve actually enjoyed perusing many of Rolling Stone’s popular lists released as of late:  The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time, The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time, etc.

In that same vein, I write now fully aware of just how sensitive and potentially meaningless the pursuit of disparaging such a list is.  Nevertheless, after taking a gander at the list in question here today, I felt I simply had no choice but to put my foot down.

You know, acknowledge that my taste in music really is more sound and respectable than these sheep; these poor, misguided fools that contributed to this horror of a list.

Make the jump for some elaboration on this — in, topical, list form, of course (and, yes, the video below is by all means a teaser).
