Video Games is still a wonderful song.
I am definitely curious, mainly owing to your remarks about Portishead last night. I will probably give it a listen when it is released this week. Also, I saw quite a few promotional posters for the album around Chicago today.

I looked into it further to make sure my comment wasn't isolated, and indeed, NY Times referred to album's textures as Portishead-like. I know it's a go-to reference re: trip-hop, but there's something to it, if only the fact that both acts feature feminine vocals.

Didn't care much for the album at all. Gave it a 3/5, which for me, means it's pretty middling.

All of this disparagement is only making me more interested for some reason.

I find it highly ironic that America's sweetheart is only getting decent press in Britain. This rating distribution looks like Noel's solo album.

I can't muster one fuck to give about the score they gave it, but the fact that they didn't even bother to write anything at all is interesting from a broad music criticism standpoint.

OK, thank God. Nobody should ever actively seek out Tiny Mix Tapes.

I loathe TMT, even when I agree with them (though I can seldom tell). That review was just a series of passive aggressive jabs with a lot of meaningless filler in between. At least the P4k review attempted to analyze the music and its sociological implications.

Both places suck for actual written reviews in my opinion, but I still like both sites. What exactly is college teaching kids writing wise these days, specifically how to sound like a self-important douchebag with every sentence?

I swear I'm learning more by specifically studying sports journalism than anyone learning to write for news in our newspapers and blogs.
