I found a copy of The Fall on Deaf Ears' EP for 2.50 at a local record store. If you didn't know, this was Cedric Bixler's band before he was in ATD-I. I was shocked. What do I win?

I also have...

Yeah, the new Grinderman album is heads and shoulders above the first. So good.

I picked up the Tender Prey remasters and it sounds great. Can't wait to hear The Good Son and Henry's Dream (my...

So yeah my thread degenerated real quick. Larry Arms, Descendents, D4, and Jawbreaker are above all of the bands mentioned. I love Brand New, but YFW sounds amateur compared to the pop punk greats.

What pop punk albums are better, iyo? The only ones that come close are 24 Hour Revenge Therapy and Civil War.

What a boring blog. I like when people rip things to shreds, even things I like (SomethingAwful used to make fun of bands I dig and it would be hilarious), but you just aren't good at it.

I'm a married old man at 22 (why am I here?), so I'm out of touch with what the scene is. When I was in high school, it was MTVmo and metalcore bands. Now it's "post hardcore" bands with really high...

I started with Rain Dogs two years ago and now I have all 20 something albums of his. I say Rain Dogs or Swordfishtrombones. His albums pre- Swordfish is super jazzy/bluesy/ballady, and sounds pretty...

I haven't heard the new album, but I'll Sleep When You're Dead and Fantastic Damage are some of my favorite hip hop albums. Stepfather Factory = Classic.

Speaking of which, any new on Aesop's new...

Lol my screen name is CowboyDan, so I'm pretty familiar with all of their stuff. Lonesome Crowded West has my favorite production out of all of their stuff. It has a Midwestern, rustic feel that I...

Really bad songs/albums, or it could be stuff about the band that annoys you.

Modest Mouse- I like all of their music but I feel that generally, their albums got way overproduced. Too many dance...

No new album that I've heard. I imagine that they'll break up, actually. Just a feeling.

To me, King Beetle is by far the most emotional song in their catalogue, especially the climax. I'd rank it above the breakdown in Nice and Blue. The climax gives me chills. So yeah, I'd disagree...

With all of that being said, I'm incredibly pumped to see them tomorrow. I'm hoping they put on a great show. Pumped about Murder by Death too.

People are multidimensional. It's hard for me to judge someone based off of interviews and one chance encounters. And arguing over the characteristics and qualities of two musicians is petty, no...
