After last night, this needs to be said:

DON'T PAY ATTENTION TO MONTANA

He's a sad man who masturbates to people getting angry at him on the internet. He doesn't understand how logic works and has bad taste in music. He is only happy when others aren't. He's going to call your list boring until it has Josh Ritter in the top 10 (boring shit, by the way). Pay him no mind, and you'll enjoy the board much more.

i'm just pissed he's named after my homestate where i spent 18 of my first 20 years growing up :lol:

So............. I'm sitting here in Uni, trying to complete and assignment. I'll be here for another 5-6 hours, and just can't get annoyed. Reason? I'm listening to the Liars album and its sublime. In particular the last track which is godlike.

Is it really that hard to ignore him, or distract him with a Pink Floyd/Eagles/Of Montreal thread?

Still waiting for Slackmo to delete this thread.

1) The White Stripes - Icky Thump
2) Ryan Adams - Easy Tiger
3) Richard Thompson - Sweet Warrior
4) Just One More: A Tribute to Larry Brown
5) Neil Young - Performance Archives 3: Massey Hall, 1971


We're allowed to criticize eachother, so I'll say this: your list is a piece of shit


we are allowed to criticize one another, but this isn't criticism. It's assassination. Substantiate. Justify. Otherwise, you're name calling.

And I really don't care what you think of my list. If Richard Thompson and Neil Young and a Bloodshot Records comp and The White Stripes and Ryan Adams all qualify as shit in your world, I am so glad not to be you.

You see the difference? I attacked you by saying I'm glad not to be you, but I stated WHY.

Get in the game, dumbshit.

well, I probably ought to reply elsewhere, but as you asked...

After Front Parlour Music, his album of tributes to folk balads and pub songs, which didn't do much for me, Sweet Warrior is a return to his folk-rock/guitar hero band, which is the side of himI enjoy much more. I have tosay, the problem with nly having listened to afew new albums this year is that I have to give the albummuch higher praise than it may deserve. It breaks no new ground. You've got your vaguely Eastern sounding drone rock (Needle and Thread); your '50s dancehall raveup (Bad Monkey), your gentle acoustic balladry (She Sang Angels to Rest); your stately closing ballads (Sunset Song). Thompson is a lot like Steve Earle, actually, in that his records rarely surprise and are almost predictable in terms of the styles he'll work within and explore, but if you like either one's overall sound, or guitar playing in Thompson's case, or lyrics, there'll be something for you. It's a good record, but if I HAD listened to 30 or 40 records released this year, I don't know if it would have made the list. It reminds me of Earle's El Corazon or Transcendental Blues - solid catalogue albums that varying critics will rate between three and four stars depending on their level of love for him.

WAWAWAWAWAWAWAWAWAWAWAWA

None of it "qualifies as shit" in my world. I merely made the simple, just, and ultimately correct statement that your list is, and I quote, "a piece of shit."

You were right though, it needs a why:

If Richard Thompson and Neil Young and a Bloodshot Records compilation and The White Stripes and Ryan Adams all qualify as "Better Than Every Other Recording Released in the Year 2007" in your world, I am FUCKING so glad not to be you.

where do we gooo new?!!?

Oh my lord, you ARE a dumbshit. Have you somehow missed the entirely ridiculous sub thread about how these are the only new albums I bought this year? In any case, you still fail to justify your original position by explaining how and why my selections are a piece of shit.
