Arkells are a phenomenal live band. I don't think they've quite harnessed it on their albums yet(though what I've heard of this one so far is a vast improvement on Record #1), but it has to be seen...

I'd love tickets to the August 31st show in Vancouver, BC, at Rogers Arena.

I've been a fan of Blink since the "Dude Ranch" era. I can remember seeing "Dammit" late night on MuchMusic and having me...

I was kind of hoping they'd refine their sound into something a bit more accessible and with just a shade of pop tendencies.

This really hits the mark. Very nice.

Most Radiohead albums are made so good by their production/mixing. Godrich and them is an unbelievable combination.

I know many, many excellent producers who think Kid A is pretty much the pinnacle...

He hasn't been playing it live, though when I saw him in Vancouver on the first date of the tour, he played it by request, eschewing "Like the Wheel" from the set in favor of it.

He said that he...

I came to the realization when I first wrote it. Haha. I was pretty aware of the snideness of the remark.

I'm not one of those people, but of course that's what will happen. You're putting your opinion out on a music site that covers a HUGE span of genres and it's only natural that you will be criticized...

Yikes. You claim this album "falls flat" and then praise a boring, middle-of-every-road band like The Arkells?

Oof.

Chad Smith being anywhere near this list pretty much discredits it entirely.

Nice to see someone mention Chris Pennie.

And how the fuck have multiple people made reference to Aaron Gillespie...

This is one of the only negative reviews(well, somewhat negative) of this record I've read.

I'm surprised to hear that someone who is a fan of their earlier work isn't a fan of this. It's a really...

As a teacher, it's too much of a risk to add a student on Facebook. Seeing what some teachers get their licenses suspended for, I just never want to have to answer for why I have a student on my...

If you live near these shows and are even a passing fan of hip-hop, go.

Shad is currently re-inventing the game in Canada and k-os is always, always a very solid live performer.

I'm not attempting to discourage you from making obscure references or even using larger words in your works. I'm not trying to say that you should aim for the LCD and not challenge yourself.

I agree with this sentiment. I thought May was a really odd release date for them also, but Boxer was released in May too, so whatever I guess.

I only have a few qualms, one being that you only scored the instrumentation an 8.75 when Bryan Devendorf is probably the best drummer in indie and their instrumental choices set them apart in the...

Yeah, I'll be excited for that too, hats are ridiculous up here, the rise in cost isn't reflective of the exchange rate at ALL. Hats regularly run over $40 here.

You'll still be willing to ship to...

Yeah, my Lids had them in stock too, in just about every size, so I'd imagine they're out there, especially since I live in Canada.

No, they fit WAY better than AN. I hate AN hats, I find the brims are crooked and they never fit straight. These fit very similar to NE, just a little lighter.

And yes, 100% wool.
