yeah, you're both right, and I'm a little embarrassed I didn't make that connection and only spoke about white artists

I didn't want to go too hard on you, but I couldn't believe in the year of our lord 2021 I once again saw a reference to the Stones as originators of that sound .

i don't think you should be embarrassed, it was an honest question. and i always welcome any excuse to post videos of the hardest working man in show business in his prime.

This is both engrossing reading and also unbelievably, almost unreadably self-centred The History of Pitchfork’s Reviews Section in 38 Reviews

Honestly, I really don't want to pick on Cobbler at all, so I hope he takes this without malice, but having another "Cobbler" moment really did make me smile.

are Greatest Hits albums totally a thing of the past now? i can't think of a single artist that broke through after the 90s that has released one of those.

I think due to streaming, you can check out a list of an artist's most popular tracks pretty easily without having to dig for it.

So I think they're kind of irrelevant at this point.

It's a shame because Rihanna and Lady Gaga's career retrospectives would have hung with the all time best pop star compilations.

Agreed. Plenty of artists out there who I wouldn't consider having an all-time classic album, but plenty of all-time classic songs.

I think of older artists like Billy Joel and Journey whose best albums really are their greatest hits (although The Stranger is up there too) and how they benefited from that. Kind of miss it.

It feels as though Sleater-Kinney have polished all of their edges. That’s not a good thing. The new album felt completely innocuous and kind of boring? Maybe Janet Weiss was their engine.
