ashlee simpson...

because that album was supposed to save rock and roll and bring back real musicians to the forefront.

it's a shame it had a long title: "how to dismantle an atomic bomb"....


....oh, wait a minute.....no, no....that's the u2 album that did save rock and roll etc.

ashlee simpson bombed on SNL.

damn, I always get those 2 things mixed up.

damn drugs.

Lars Frederiksen and the Bastards - "Viking"

it's over-produced with too damn much high end. it's like tim armstrong (who produced it) ran the thing through a high pass filter. ick.

plus the songs are lame. they're mostly about lars trying to show us all how badass he is. um....no. their first album was pretty damn good punk rock but "viking" blows.

ok, end my wee rant here!

I wonder if people would think REM sucked if they had a U2-style publicity machine behind them. I mean, maybe they do suck now, I dunno. Haven't heard the album. 'Reveal' was a letdown in an airport, I must admit.

REM still has a decent publicity machine, that video for 'Bad Day' debuted on CNN awhile back, I mean how much more mainstream does that get.

Definitely REM. I like the album, but I used to love them. Haven't been the same since Bill Berry left.

Publicity does not make a good album.

Case in point Michael Jackson's Invincible album. One of the superstars of music, and it tanked in spite of that video and the hype.
Come to think of it, I think "Bad" was his last really succesful album.

Not to mention the hordes of bubble gum pop/rap/R&B who get mega exposure on mainstream radio and MTV and the charts. Doesn't mean they're THAT good.

well... michael jackson also had those pesty lil' child molestation charges circling around him...

REM? they haven't really had a hit in like 12 years. they've had some good songs in that time... but nothing that's made even a minor dent on radio.

Far and away it has to be Interpol - Antics. I was also very sad about the latest BRMC album (but that might have been 2003, I dunno).
