Must've pulled up that Death Grips cover too many times.

The network filter pegs it as "streaming media," so this is entirely possible. They never seemed to catch onto the fact that I've been watching NCAA tournament games at my desk for the last two weeks, though.

On a related note, I can tell you quite definitely what the web address for Dick's Sporting Goods is NOT.

Every new time I listen to 'Full Of Fire', I think, "This song can't possibly be as crazy as I remember it being. I probably made too much of it and it's not that crazy."

Oh! But it is. It most definitely is.

This 20 minute track is a bit tedious.

This album is pretty crazy. I'm not sure that I enjoy it, but it's some weird shit nonetheless.

I'm listening to the stream now. Wow. Those first two songs (I haven't listened to any of them before now).

Batshit crazy. I like it.

This might be the most pretentious review I've ever read. And I've read the P4K Kid A review.

The Knife - Shaking the Habitual | Music Review | Tiny Mix Tapes

The last paragraph is golden.
Quote:
As an album designed to be consumed as a whole, Shaking The Habitual is exhausting. But the experience is unique, not only because of its length, but because of the inquisitive nature of the project. There are some fascinating dimensions to the music, but to deliberately pull them from the surrounding material is dispiriting because of the music’s context and the artistic aspirations behind it. Scoring this release at zero comes not from some gut reaction to long-form drone, electroacoustic experimentation, or the maniacal way in which The Knife have approached protest music — I find it enthralling that they should go to such lengths to prove a point. When they say “we want to fail more,” their intention is to breech the album format as a construct, and in that respect, they have succeeded. Indeed, I’m not attacking The Knife for their daring feat, but reexamining my own familiarities with convention at the hands of their artistry, and that simply won’t register on a scale of one to five.

So he either hates it or loves it, and is too big of a pansy to tell us which it is? I hope his (marble) house burns down.

Really excited to listen to this tonight.

I don't see how anyone could write that last sentence with a straight face.

The album is a real pain in the ass but they're too afraid to say so.

The great songs are awesome and the terrible songs are almost intolerable. If they had kept to the sound of the first five songs I would be all over this.
