"The Dog-End of a Day Gone By" is like heroin for me. Psychedelic, grinding guitar and a mesmerizing, overwhelming drum sound. Fuckin glorious.

Generally not a fan of glitchy electronica, with all those pops and clicks—it tends to induce a certain anxiety in me—but I do like Múm quite a bit. Can't say what they do differently that works for me, but nevertheless I dig this record.

This album is king. 10 times better than their debut in my opinion. Such a great sound to it, nothing tinny, just hard, solid tunes. UnBiloTitled and Unstookie Titled are world class tracks.

Very solid album... I like those first two Babyshambles ones a lot (and the first Dirty Pretty Things one despite it sounding like it was recorded in a toilet)

Just listened to the new Pixies album and can report, my friends, that it is not good. This is been the most "Frank Black"-like record they've done. None of the old Pixies charm anywhere.

No Kim, no Pixies as far as I'm concerned.

Tho that's not an uncommon view, I've never quite understood it. She's cool as fuck, but Black Francis wrote/writes the music and sings most of the songs, and its Joey Santiago's guitar sound that is the most distinctive to me. I scratch my head at what makes her irreplaceable.

I agree. I've seen them twice in concert with her replacement, and, aside from the weirdness of someone else singing Gigantic, I really didn't notice much of a difference. And I LOVE Kim Deal.
Got a Rake? Sure!

Accurate on the DPT album. Extremely so.

Not entirely a musical thing... kind of like when Davo replaced Dan Donovan on the BAD re-union tour. I still loved them but it wasn't truly BAD for me. And there's an argument to be made that he at least improved the sound.

No, I understand that even if I don't experience it myself (at least not with Pixies). It's the idea of a group being a singular thing, not a collection of individuals.

I liked Frank Black's solo work and the Catholics stuff. I found it weird that he seemed to just stop making music in favor of touring endlessly with this Pixies cabaret. From 2004 on he seemed to just stop recording anything, until... this crap. All three records since the reformation have been boring as hell. You wonder what happened.
