As far as Dead Meadow vs Justin Timberlake goes, one act put together a phenomenal stoner-rock record for 200$ in a garage, whereas the other put together a pretty good (or so I've heard) pop/dance album (which admittedly I have not listened to in its entirety) with a whole lot of studio help and a previous career in a boy band.  One act pens lyrics involving Lovecraftian creatures, and the other act sings about bringing sexy back. 

When I listen to the opening strains of Sleepy Silver Door, I am visualizing the trees and mountains uprooting themselves to fight against the Old Ones; when I listen to Sexyback, I visualize some kids found those giant pianos you walk on and started stomping on a few keys at random and repeated that for a while because they thought it sounded cool.  For me to really like a record it has to paint a scene in my mind that captivates me and make me want to stare at it awhile.  It doesn't have to follow a theme, it just has to be pleasing to my inner eye or whatever you want to call it, and Futuresex/Lovesounds doesn't do that for me. 

That's the best justification I can offer as to why I would pick Dead Meadow over Futuresex/Lovesounds.  I don't think it's a bad album, it's just not one I like, whether it is superior to the other or not.

Your reasons for preferring the sound of one over the sound of the other are totally fair and that is one of those 'to each their own' deals.

But to hold against Futuresex/Lovesounds that it was recorded in a studio, that JT worked together with Timbaland to put it together and that he used to be in N Sync? I don't think that is fair.

Lo-fi, cheaply done 4-tracked albums and hi-fi, immaculate studio albums can both suck, or they can both be great, it just depends on the songcraft (Look at John Darnielle, he's done both styles and all of his albums kick ass). I've got no qualms with someone liking Dead Meadows over JT, people have their tastes, but I think to hold the manner of its production against it is unwise.

Either way, it was an arbitrary comparison that doesn't really work when trying to critically analyze the two, as it is pretty much apples to oranges.

Man any prick can go and rip off cult authors and use their stuff but as to the concept of "bringing sexy back"... well... Suffice to say most folk did not even know it was gone in the first place.

I always thought that maybe that line was more of a self aware reference about the fact that he used to be a sex symbol but his career had been a bit in the shitter and then he's all listening to some of his new tracks and going "oh shit this is going to get me back on top" and then he wrote a single about it.

Justin Timberlake is in fact the eponymous Sexy and by the sheer fact of singing that song he was 'bringing sexy back'

It just really stuck out as odd, partly since you went and put it in bold.

this, basically. i mean, you made other points that were pretty okay! you basically took your absolute worst point, and not only stated it first, but capitalized it. obviously that is the point that will stand out the post. the base for your point, basically.

sorry for dwelling on this guys bhhhhhhhh

Jens, if we could have included some of Fugazi's 90's albums I definitely would have voted for them (and multiple times). I just don't feel that strongly about The Argument.

The Argument is my favourite Fugazi albm. In fact it's definitely in my Top 10 albums of all time, and maybe Top 5.

Does Jaydiohead count as a hip hop album? 'Cause that's what i would nominate for best hip hop album.

not only is that not really a hip hop album it is not even nearly as good as Skeet Spirit: A Crunk Tribute to Radiohead in the first place

I'll look into that

if you have not found it by Friday I will post it in the mediaf!re thread for real

I'm pretty surprised and puzzled that Elliot Smith might beat MPP.  I mean Elliot is good, but I wonder if this has as much to do with backlash.

I don't know about that.  Merriweather Post Pavillion showed a lot of polish and spark that they just didn't possess on their previous two releases.  Then again, MPP is a lot more electronic, almost completely doing away with the guitar.  It's sort of a take it or leave it album because it's basically a album full of really dramatic electronic sounds in contrast with the softer and more gradual production on Strawberry Jam.  I, for one, like them both a good deal and consider them equal in quality, but different in style.

To be fair, we are dealing with a competition here where cat calling and other joshing is expected.

I'll also add that Sung Tongs is overall enjoyable, Feels had a few great tracks but the rest was horribly boring. The rest is really just boring

So, we should only post our opinion if we agree that Animal Collective is awesome?  I don't see how stating that some of us not liking a band, and stating that fact is any less productive than only people who like that band state what album they like when figuring out why people aren't voting for that band's albums.

Ah, but if someone says:

That some people don't like Animal Collective might explain why the album didn't do well.  After all, he was wondering.

And if you want to know why I don't like them, just take those two seconds and expand it to the length of an album.  Are you happier now that I've called Animal Collective "boring"?  Do you find it less offensive?

Finally, most of the posts about the albums were nothing more than "I don't like album x."

I'm curious now.  Why am I retarded?  Because I believe in providing somebody with information on a subject if they are wondering about that subject?  Is it because I find Animal Collective boring?  Or is it something else that I've completely missed?  Rather frequently I am quite retarded, so if you could inform me of my mistake, that would be great.

It's probably somewhere in between.  All I'm saying is that it's not like comments such as scarred are hurting the thread, or even anyone's feelings unless they have the emotional fortitude of an infant.  I don't want to step on your toes or anything, it's just not as serious as all that.

Yo Hat I'm gonna let you finish but Khar has voiced the most strongly worded opinions of all time.  Of ALL time.


Also, I'd like to add that your avatar is now Kanye West's main picture on Last.Fm

Oh, I didn't think that you were talking about him.  It all makes sense now.  INTERNET DRAMA!  It's so much better than normal drama by not being better at all.

Maybe people should elaborate on why they like album x vs. album y (which could be due to someone disliking all of band y's albums) a little bit more?

p.s.  Am I already bored of that meme?  Wow.  Usually it takes me way longer.  I don't think I have a short attention sp-

So, I think that we should all be awesome instead of not being awesome.

I know I was thinking that today dude. Like normally I am not tired of memes this quickly but I thought maybe because I have Kanye for an avatar I was taking it personally or something.

actually I've been reading the Satanic Verses this last week and I just got to thinking that I might literally be turning into an avatar of Kanye

Ah, but if someone says:

I'm pretty surprised and puzzled that Elliot Smith might beat MPP.  I mean Elliot is good, but I wonder if this has as much to do with backlash.

That some people don't like Animal Collective might explain why the album didn't do well.  After all, he was wondering.

This.

I guess if you really want my reasoning for not voting for Merriweather Post Pavilion, Hat, then I can give it: that album honestly sounds to me like nothing more than some guy banging furiously on some congas and a keyboard set to autobloop, and occasionally screaming "MYYYYYY GIRRRRRLS" at the top of his lungs.

No, thanks for correcting me. My bad. I always like to make fun of things accurately.

p.s. Just to clarify, I don't have a problem with their existence (unlike, say, the Jonas Brothers), they're just not my thing. And so I will mock them accordingly.
