I'm glad they are going to make those maintenance updates "quick" on Tuesday, November 22nd. I've got things to do. Probably. May 22, 2017 at 3:39 PM

      Yeah Yeah Yeahs' "Show Your Bones" has aged really well. I enjoy it much more now than I did when it was first released.

        It's still behind Fever to Tell and It's Blitz in my book, but it's certainly solid.

        Weirdly, it's the only one of the three I own on vinyl.

        That's where I used to put it as well, but I think it might have moved ahead of "It's Blitz" for me, which I never thought I'd say. I listened to "It's Blitz" last week, and it didn't hit the mark for me the way it used to for some reason.

      Not a fan of their cell service, but, kudos to Sprint for using William Onyeabor's 'Fantastic Man' in their current ad spot.

      Sadly, "Breaking News" graphics are getting a workout today. Driver plowed through folks in Time Square. Sounds like a DWI situation.

        Well, they're so different, but that's what made the Velvets so great. And what made them not get along at times. Lou's edgy lyrics coupled with Cale's avant-garde leanings. Both were noisy in their own way I guess.

        I agree with @duke86fan Fear and Paris 1919 are phenomenal, better than any Reed album IMO

        Reed's solo work is certainly spotty (putting it mildly), but, I mean, "Transformer" is pretty badass. That said, I would say that there are more Cale solo albums that I find consistently enjoyable. "Vintage Violence" is another favorite, along with much of the Island Years material.

        Cool...they had Sky Ferreira with them to do the 'The Two Of Us' off of the new album. Sounded pretty good. Sky looked nervous, but sounded good in her parts.

        Also worth noting, Fever To Tell turns 15 next year and it was only ever pressed on a lousy picture disc. Sounds like future VMP AOTM material to me

      If you like William Onyeabor & David Bowie's 'Sound & Vision'...check out Palo Duro's single 'Darken The Glow'. Nice hybrid of those sounds.

      Can you declare you had a successful RSD if you don't find what you were originally looking for until 3 weeks after the actual RSD?

        I'll never forget seeing Dino Jr. perform The Wagon on David Letterman. Came back from the break with Letterman crowing "Answer the phone! Will someone answer the phone!" alluding to his ears ringing from the assault of the volume.

        Polyvinyl offering refunds to people who purchased the album? I don't think I've ever seen that happen before from a label over something like this. I'm amazed at the speed with which things are happening.

        The last song is slow too, but I like them both. The first one feels like a high & lonesome country song to me, with those backing vocals almost sounding like one of those saws. Maybe not the song I would have chosen to open the album, but he didn't ask me.
