I thought we were allies of old age! You disappoint me, Martha. We're both totally over the age of 18.

Rococo is great. The chorus is SUPPOSED to be slightly annoying: "using words they don't understand" and "what is that horrible song they're singing?" are the lyrical giveaways.

Sprawl II is the real prize of the album and the top track.

Maybe Anu was onto something...

Oh, well, if it's annoying but it's intentionally annoying, I guess that's fine. I guess Wild Honey Pie is a good song now, too?

Kinda like when people say Man on the Moon was a shitty, incoherent mess because Kaufman's life was an incoherent mess. "It's supposed to mirror his life, man. Genius!" I'd like to think the band isnt so retarded as to use that piss poor excuse (not that I think Rococo is shitty)

I didn't think Man on the Moon was phenomenal, either. A decent movie with some good perf, but that's it.

And that R.E.M. song for the movie is even more overrated.

I don't think that any song this year has generated as much discussion on these forums as "Rococo."

And I somewhat like "Wild Honey Pie." It's a complete throw-away, but enjoyable in a quirky type of way. It's like Homer Simpson describing David Schwimmer: "Yeah...he's handsome, in an ugly sort of way."

It's painful to listen to Wild Honey Pie. Worst song I've ever heard.

They posted the Power Out/Rebellion combo from the MSG Youtube show.
