I never miss an opportunity to say that I think Mr. Buckley, while very talented, was made overrated by death.

And then joyfulgirl comes along and disagrees enormously.

All in a very friendly way, naturally.

I'm just glad it was me who was graced with overhearing his afternoon voice lessons and not any of you.

#58 - Arcade Fire - Neon Bible



Worse than Funeral, better than pretty much everything else.

Quote:
Moody crap sung by a Springstein wannabe and backed up by a bunch of sad pricks playing an assortment of wanky instruments. Everyone who's anyone will buy this. You should too.
Quote:
Arcade Fire is from Montreal.

If you knew how cheap their rent was you’d punch them in the face!!!!
Quote:
[...]Oh, and I should also add that the vocal intro to "My Body Is a Cage" is probably the most "I WANT TO PUNCH THE LEAD SINGER'S LIGHTS OUT!!!!" moment I have ever had. Lyrically, it's awful, and his voice and delivery makes me want to vomit.
Quote:
Overrated album with pretentious lyrics, boring songwriting and flat production. I don't get it.
Quote:
*compares it to Funeral*

#57 - Bruce Springsteen - The Rising



Intriguing choice, to say the least. I think Pfan and Ashley pushed this one over the top.

Quote:
My apologies to all you Loose Bedspring fans out there, but to me this guy's been irrelevant since the day Rosalita and Spanish Johnny were hired to clean his toilets. Pretense, thy name is Bruce.
Quote:
Listened to this after my dad bought it post-9/11 like so many others. I couldn't even identify any part of it to what I thought Springsteen was all about. Give him points for releasing an album so ambitiously, take almost all those points away because it is all filler and seems to be an album generated out of a machine for purely financial reasons. I don't know if this is true, but I do know that there is nothing musically worthwhile on this whole endeavor.
Quote:
The Rising is a hateful exercise in capitalism. Either Springsteen is a misguided, arrogant moron who believes he sings truth or is he one cynical bastard. Post 9/11, Springsteen appointed himself as the conduit for a nation's pain and he ruthlessly marketed his "new album" as some kind of remedy; he did everything but play concerts at Ground Zero. I use the term "new album" loosely because the record is full of half baked AOR power ballads; the type of stuff that Springsteen could've come up with in his sleep and probably did. Really, The Rising came out too quickly to be anything but a rush job. Look, artistic freedom dictates that anyone can talk about any subject, I'm fine with that. But when you strive to tie your product to a national tragedy and do so with such bogus material and dumb lyrics - the type of lyrics only those with the lowest of I.Q.'s will misconstrue - you're pandering. And if you have the right to make an corp-rock album about 9/11, I have the right to call you out as a cheap, corporate shill.
Quote:
Bought it.. Heard it... Chucked it...

Why do people have to be so damn political. Healing? Give me a priest, not some guy that sounds constapated.

This album is all hype and no pay out, and you all just got suckered.

The Springsteen choices are somewhat surprising but I approve of this one.
