Very catchy. The double entendre doesn’t bother me (Why Don’t We Do It in the Road?, Hi, Hi, Hi, etc.), but I wasn’t expecting it. Don’t think it will get any airplay on radio because of the “Fuh”.

That is catchy. It sounds like literally every pop song of the past five years though. The most embarrassing part is a 76-year-old man saying he wants to 'fuh' someone.

He's also obviously smarter than U2. U2 have a blatant banger in Love is Bigger but they led with the two worst songs they've ever put to tape.

Sweetener is out. There's no tracks as banging as Into You or Dangerous Woman sadly there's a four or five song run in the middle of the album that's pretty great though.

Anyone listen to the new Mitski album? I think it may be her strongest work yet, or at the very least as strong as Puberty 2.

Geyser, Remember My Name, Me and My Husband, Nobody and Washing Machine Heart are early favorites.

I heard it. Very eclectic. I think her voice is the MVP of the record.

Really enjoyed her last album. The new one is just ok, but the lack of over-the-top vocals is a nice change of pace.

This is a good point. If you’re gonna do something this shamelessly pop, at least have the balls to put it up front pre-release. Had U2 dropped Love Is Bigger as the lead at least it would have showed conviction.

Yeah. They still would have copped shit, but at least it would have insulated them somewhat by being proper U2-by-numbers, not tryhard U2-by-numbers.

I was at a concert last night where there were a few people near the stage signing the lyrics to all the songs. It made me wonder why a deaf person would attend a concert in the first place.

My feet got a nice massage from the bass at an extraordinarily loud My Bloody Valentine concert I went to the other day.

Seriously, I think people just like the vibe, being around people who are having a good time, feeling the beat, etc.

Yeah much like Travis noted, they can feel the vibration of the music.

Not to mention that deafness, like blindness, is a spectrum.

Yeah I figured there was probably some range of deafness where an interpreter would be helpful but perhaps not essential. The band was Beach House though, so not really a scenario where you will have beats pulsing through you.

I was a little skeptical of the super high score it got on Pitchfork, but it's a damn good album. Nobody is my favorite so far.

People crying about this ruining his legacy can fuck off from me, though. This motherfucker was one of the two principle songwriters in the Monkees. Come on. The legacy can never be tarnished. "Daydream Believer", "Last Train to Clarksville". I mean the list goes on and on.
