Re: What happened to the Alabama Shakes?

I've never really been a big fan of the band and I don't think they should be trying to 'pull back' the strongest factor--which is Brittany! I feel like she needs to go into the studio with just a jack white or a dan auerbach and cut a stripped down record. This stuff isn't working.

Re: My Morning Jacket thread

I'm underwhelmed. Nothing good for me on this album. Damn. Shit. I'm going back to the headphones and trying to polish this turd somehow in my mind. Opposite here; I love everything about it, aside from "Big Decisions". Yeah, I do, too. And I haven't really liked much since 2008. It's a g...

Re: 2015 Album Releases

I hated it when it first came out, but Circuital grew on me. "Wonderful" is one of my top 5 MMJ tunes. Lyrically they've always been brain dead or pretty close, and being a lyric guy they're one of the few bands I like in spite of that. Personally I prefer Circuital to Z or Evil Urges . w...

Jack White has said repeatedly that Dan Auerbach is straight copying him. And as much as I hate to give Jack White credit, I kinda agree with him. i disagree w this. "straight out copying" is a huge stretch. auerbach has a unique sound and tremendous talent. Keep It Hid is an outstanding ...

Re: 3DD artist of the week - 5/10/2010 - Todd Snider

What a depressing interview to read on a Sunday morning. Sounds like Todd is in a very dark place. That is unfortunate, I hope the best for him but by a number of things stated, it does not sound very good. Here's to hoping he can pull his head out and turn it around. I agree--when he does show up,...

Circuital sounded like children's music written by an adult with cognitive disabilities. Maybe this will be better. But didn't he redeem himself with the whole A-E-I-O-U understanding of the vowel concept?! Yes agree---can't listen to Outta My System but oh the glorious memories of seeing it live.....

There is a side who cares about what the facts might be and there is a side that rushed to 'black and white judgment'.

I'm as liberal as they come, but if you accept the grand jury's findings as read by the prosecutor last night (and I do), I think the shooting was justified.
