I read all of your post, IWB, for whatever it's worth. Took all of 5 minutes to read. Thanks for sharing your perspective......

Most Anticipated:

U2
Arcade Fire
The National
Depeche Mode
The Joy Formidable
Atoms for Peace
My Bloody Valentine
Yeah Yeah Yeahs
Nick Cave

Most Dreaded:

Metallica
Black Sabbath
Ra Ra Riot
Blackfield

Just curious, for those who put Steven Wilson's new solo album on most dreaded, why so? I didn't think Grace for Drowning was bad. "Index" was a particular highlight.

I loved their first album, and their second was so disappointing. It wasn't bad, but it sounded like Vampire Weekend (which, okay, it was produced by someone from VW, but why did it sound just like VW? And I LIKE them!).

Not sure what to expect from the next one.

Back when I had like a million free downloads from eMusic (I hate that site now) I bought a Ra Ra Riot album. It was good, nothing to write home about, though.


I literally just listened to five seconds of Sun Kil Moon and my hype level for the new Mark Kozelek releases (of which there appear to be 2) just flew through the roof.

For me, Grace for Drowning and Storm Corrosion represent a marked decline from his earlier work - I guess finally everything he touches has stopped turning to gold. I found it overblown, often tedious, and too much proggy/jazzy wankery drowning out his talent for songwriting. Grace for Drowning never should've been a double album. I did like some tracks, especially Deform to Form a Star, but for the first time ever, I have not hurried back to an SW release. The comparison on my last.fm between the stats for Grace for Drowning and Storm Corrosion and the stats for literally everything else featuring SW is stark.

Really, I just want him to stop dicking around and get back to Porcupine Tree.

Who looks forward to not liking an album?

Ah, wait, check that. I just realized where I am.

Sorry.

Seems like he's now just copy-and-pasting old posts.

If only we'd all just listened to and given five stars to that Darkness record.

By that reasoning, why do you make time to complain about others not liking the same things you like? We all have different tastes, who cares? Like whatever the hell you want to like, stop giving a shit whether or not the rest of us here like it.
