Re: 2015 EOY Poll Results--Songs

May I recommend Per Nørgård's 3rd Symphony ? Utterly amazing, a recent discovery. Oh, can I just say thanks for your mention of this, sonofsam? While I didn't particularly care for the 3rd symphony, it did lead me to Nørgård's own Constellations, Fugitive Summer, and his 6th Sympathy ("At the End o...

Re: Kanye West's "The Life of Pablo"

Jay Z has prolly asked Kanye to keep it Tidal exclusive and Kanye's doing it out of gratitude or something. That's definitely not smart for Kanye himself cos it's getting pirated so much too. And he's 53M in debt... Is it not going to be selling through even iTunes? That's a death sentence there. W...

Is that message from Mos Def still the first thing you hear when you enter his website?

Re: Kanye West's "The Life of Pablo"

What are our opinions on whether Tracks 14-18 ("Silver Surfer Intermission" onwards) count as "bonus tracks" in context of the album? As I've stated, Kanye seems to be debunking the whole idea of a cohesive album release with The Life of Pablo , but thinking about it, there does seem to be a natura...

Re: Taylor Swift Winning Grammy Album of the Year Award

Lady Gaga's Bowie tribute. I agree with everything you said. I was kinda excited for it because the Sound Of Music tribute she did las year was fantastic. It surprised me it was so intricate (messy) due to the short time frame they had to prepare. Like you said, it needed something simple (thinking...

Re: Taylor Swift Winning Grammy Album of the Year Award

So I finally listened to 1989 the whole way through... It's fine. But I still feel like EMOTION does the same thing better. Something about Taylor feels... off, to me, but I can't figure out what. Thank God "EMOTION" wasn't nominated for any of the pop categories. Otherwise we'd have a serious conu...

Re: Taylor Swift Winning Grammy Album of the Year Award

Though there are a lot of people targeting the "Blackstar" win for next year, even though it's very out of the mainstream style-wise, only because the Grammys love giving their awards as retrospective 'lifetime achievement' recognitions. Well, I am certainly hoping "Blackstar" will at least get nom...

On a side note, can I just write her name without the accent?

Re: The day Beyoncé turned black

I'm not sure how Beyonce has become such a controversial figure, but one of the problems I have with this video is she's also been getting attacked by other black people for essentially not being black enough, either because she's too successful to understand suffering or because she dares to dye h...

Re: Taylor Swift Winning Grammy Album of the Year Award

But then again, it's the Grammys. Is there anyone out there who really cares about music that actually values the opinion of the Grammys? Excellent point made there. ;) I just guess I saw a tiny ray of hope with Beck's win over Beyoncé last year. I think the problem is that 70-year-old white people...

Taylor Swift Winning Grammy Album of the Year Award

What do you think about Taylor Swift winning her SECOND Grammy Award for Album of the Year? While I personally have not listen to 1989 due to not being able to finding the whole album in its whole, I have heard the six singles out. I found Shake It Off grating, Blank Space pretty good, Style bland, ...
