Make sure it's on each page of the thread, just to be safe.
Wait you still have a myspace?
Just think about it for a second. It makes no sense to introduce an album you are supporting by giving the title and THEN referencing the band. The band is the selling point: who cares about an anonymous album if there is no context as to who made it? And I'm fully aware that I'm trying to convince a troll to stop being a troll, but really, why would you do it that way?
sad that so many people let the Frank Ocean hype get to them and overshadow the GEM that Miguel dropped. IMO the best R&B album to come out this year. highly recommend it.
11/21 - Pearl Jam - Viejas Arena
Yeah, that Frank Ocean album is a decent listen, but its success definitely rests on its accessibility more than anything. And let's face it, the kids buying into the "indie" market these days aren't the type to explore genres; they'll just eat up this album and anything that tries to ride its coattails.
I agree with what Andrew said but not with that. It's got a crossover appeal because he's not just sitting on R&B songwriting tropes and the same basic timbres and instrumentations that the genre always has. The success rests in large part on the fact that he wrote a fantastic batch of songs, and the backlash against the album seems to just ignore that fact.
Happy 12.12.12 http://pitchfork.com/reviews/albums/17407-voodoo/
I can't get into him BECAUSE of Nostalgia, Ultra. I hated that album so much that it's all I could think of when I listened to Channel Orange, which is mediocre at best.
YEAH BUT WHY DON'T MORE WHITE PEOPLE LIKE IT
Alright people. I have only listened to a few releases this year. What are your final thoughts on 2012?
