If I'm wasting my time downloading all of these individually to later upload as grouped files, I'm gonna be pissed.
But among the jackals, the panthers, the bitch hounds, The apes, the scorpions, the vultures, the serpents, The yelping, howling, growling, crawling monsters, In the filthy menagerie of our vices, There is one more ugly, more wicked, more filthy! Although he makes neither great gestures nor great cries, He would willingly make of the earth a shambles And, in a yawn, swallow the world; He is Ennui! — His eye watery as though with tears, He dreams of scaffolds as he smokes his hookah pipe. You know him reader, that refined monster, — Hypocritish reader, — my fellow, — my brother!

1990s – See You At The Lights / Super Legal (feat. Lovefoxxx) / Diabo


US Chart Position
: n/a

UK Chart Position: #106

musicOMH.com Review: "There's a hairy moment near the start of the 1990s' new single See You at the Lights. It's when Jackie says "Hey" in that Americanised rock 'n' roll style and you dread the fake dissolution of myriad industry heroes. Thank God then that 1990s turn out to be more of the magic pop ilk of The Little Ones than the payola pop of Razorlight.

See You at the Lights bounces out of the stereo like Supergrass if they still had legs, all ebullient abstract dah dah dahing and lunar guitar nudging you towards the stars with wide smiles. It's an untainted new wave magic that brings its own poignancy, and when sultry, sensual Brazilian goddess Lovefoxxx of CSS augments the B-side with quintessentially cool giggling the effect is sealed.

Smart and razor-sharp, 1990s have a humble craft to die for. All pretension is left at the door and the night is danced away. Fantastic."

Peter, Bjorn and John – Objects Of My Affection


US Chart Position
: n/a

UK Chart Position: n/a

Pitchfork Review: "Morén's "Objects of My Affection" combines the dramatic flair of an uncharacteristically upbeat Morrissey with the nasal vocals and ringing acoustic guitars of a post-Loveless "Like a Rolling Stone"."

"After much thought into this, I have finally come to a conclusion as to why the ‘Meet the Spartans’ commercial is so funny:

It is an interesting choice to have Sanjaya sing ‘I’m not gay,’ as his final words on earth. As he is plummeting into a seemingly bottomless pit, he does not say ‘dear god no,’ ‘I love you mom,’ or even simply ‘argh.’ He instead takes the moment to reaffirm to the world, in spite of their doubts, that he is not a homosexual. Not only that, but he continues to sing, despite falling to his certain death. The distinct lack of plausibility of this situation is what produces giggles from our mouth. It is the antithesis to the belief that ‘it’s funny because it is true.’

Timbaland – Give It To Me (feat. Nelly Furtado & Justin Timberlake)


US Chart Position
: #1

UK Chart Position: #1

Pitchfork Review: "Hip-hop's unchallenged pop auteur, ŕ la Brian Eno, Timbaland has parlayed his subtle experiments in bottom-heavy orientalism into that rara avis: commercial success and critical acclaim. Leaked from his second proper solo album (absent Magoo, that is), "Give It To Me" exhibits a talent immune to formula, a miracle of bankable avant-gardism. The opening verse sustains Nelly Furtado's rebirth as a sexpot, flowing from a moment of opacity ("Amnesty International got bankrupt") toward a moment of self-consciousness ("You love my ass and my abs and the video called 'Promiscuous'").

Fulcrum that he is, Timb takes the middle verse, building a mountain of serene, nothing-to-prove braggadocio that transcends Billboard rankings: "Your song gonna top the charts, I heard 'em, I'm not a fan-n-n-n-n." The beat on this track alone-- another stuttering, spectral, densely layered marvel-- certifies this unyielding faith in his aesthetic. Where the sliced-and-diced syllables of "Stay Fly" were stylistic flourishes, here they're utilitarian, reshaping lines in the mold of the wheeling, serpentine melody. On cue, Justin Timberlake shimmers in for the farewell verse, distilling the essence of "Give It To Me", with its preening vanity and halting carnal rhythms, into one question: "Now if se-sexy never left, then why's everybody on my shit-it-it?"" 5/5

Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová – Falling Slowly


US Chart Position
: n/a

UK Chart Position: n/a

mxdwn.com Review: "Most soundtracks are scored to solely accompany an existing story. The songs penned for John Carney's film Once are the backbone and emotional soul of the movie. The film's stars and resident songwriters, The Frames' lead singer Glen Hansard and Czech musician Marketa Irglova, tell a tale of two wayward spirits adrift in misery over prior relationships.

When the two characters meet they instantly establish an effortless connection and chemistry through their musical talents. On "Falling Slowly" the words build in passion, starting as a tragic murmur ("I don't know you / but I want you") then swelling into a heartwarming refrain ("Take this sinking boat / and point it home / we've still got time / raise your hopeful voice / you have a choice / you've made it now") over plucked guitar and piano. "
