    Ha, I guess sometimes it just takes a while. Glad to hear it!

    Jessie Ware, George Maple, The Weeknd, Doe Paoro, Emeli Sande, Miguel (not totally sold on him), the other indie black dude whose name currently escapes me, Laura Mvula (still trying to internalize her album, but it's not bad so far) for sure. Well, that's it for me, actually. Mainstream R&B is just that Euro-garbage now.

    Yeah, Kanye pretty much drops lyrical hammers every single time, and tells you exactly what he thinks. He's either take-it-or-leave-it, and that's fine for him I guess. Hip-hop has mostly traded places with R&B as the weaksauce commercial genre in the last 2-3 years, so hopefully Kanye continues to at least be interesting, even if I don't particularly enjoy it.

    Sonically, "Black Skinheads" is a good deal more interesting. The opening feels especially cool to me, since the percussion kind of give it a Cure/New Order/A.F.I.-channeling-"Miss-Murder" kind of thrust, which I really like. Just like the other song, though, it just doesn't seem very sophisticated lyrically.

    I don't really like "New Slaves." The high pitched electronic trills peppered throughout the track remind me of "H.A.M.," which reminds of Lex Luger, who I don't like. I don't find the production very interesting. I don't mind it so much that Kanye is trying to tackle more serious topics these days, but I really can't believe/sympathize with his plight since he is still a multi-millionaire with tons of political clout. Also, Kanye already has a tendency to be pretty vulgar, and it's a bit excessive here and doesn't really communicate his point any better. It just comes across as a firewall of anger, and doesn't feel very thoughtful or sophisticated. This song doesn't really do much for me overall.

    It took me a few listens, but I like it much more than the first time I listened to it. I do think estimates that it's the "greatest concept album in the last x years" are a bit overblown, as I think drags a bit in parts. Haaaaaated Moroder's track because I felt like the monologue was distracting initially; reminded me too much of how Quincy Jones single-handedly ruined every MJ special edition album by dropping those monologue interludes in the middle of the album. But I finally figured out how to somewhat appreciate the history behind his anecdote, and the actual track itself is pretty groovy. Panda Bear feature song is great. Definitely growing on me. Thoughtful album at least. Still haven't checked out the Kanye stuff quite yet.

    Haven't heard any of them. Get back to you when I do. What do you think?

    To qualify a bit, there are times where Kanye's presence is not only sufficient, but sometimes impressive. I just think that he has a very distinct inability to figure out how to ride beats naturally (which is why I don't believe he would ever be able to freestyle), and I think it shows on tracks that he pushes out quickly compared to others that he's worked and meditated on for some time. All the songs I listed in the previous shout are songs I think are marred by either lazy/bad songwriting or his knack for being technically imprecise, or both. The best evidence I have of this is the first single off his collaboration with Jay-Z, "H.A.M." Kanye doesn't even sound like he knows how he wants to even approach the track, and he comes off as sounding incredibly sloppy all together.

    I was driving back from Wichita, KS, earlier today (celebrated V-Day this past weekend with my girl) and I had The College Dropout on for the hell of it, and I still think that it lyrically outclasses pretty much everything he's put out since '04. I'll concede that I was being hyperbolic when I claimed he shits on his tracks, but his coalescence of weak rhymes and frequently lazy flow (or, at the very least, a flow that lacks any sense of urgency) come together all to often to erode the quality of his production. The more I listen to Twisted Fantasy, the more I realize that it's really not too dissimilar of an experience from Graduation; both had a slew of wonderfully produced tracks that were taken several notches down by lots of blown opportunities ("All of the Lights," "Monster," "Devil in a Red Dress," "Blame Game," "Lost in the World" / "Stronger," "I Wonder," "Barry Bonds," "Drunk and Hot Girls," "Flashing Lights").

    I think we had this conversation a long time ago, and we pretty much see eye to eye on production over songwriting in the rap. For me though, it only takes a handful of bad couplets or really lame references saddled on an awkward flow to ruin a track for me, despite how well-constructed the actual song may be from a sonics perspective. I think a reasonable level of charisma, technical proficiency in emceeing or both is generally required in order to keep a decent track great or elevate it to higher levels of enjoyment. Both Timbaland and Kanye have had a well-documented history of shitting on their best and most inventive tracks with their own weak-sauce delivery and mic presence, and it's a weird phenomenon that still recurs even today. Cosign on The College Dropout though - super-sick debut.

    Re: "Runaway," I'm actually not too crazy about that song, or the album for that matter. I've written a little about it in my most recent journal entry (for a hip-hop class I took during intersession this past December). People keep swearing by their mother that Kanye hasn't sounded this good in years or ever, and I think that only somewhat applies to maybe four or five songs, so I really can't hear it. The rest of it is driveling, misogynistic garbage. What did you think overall?

    I've been going back and forth on James Blake's debut for a couple of weeks now. I think that it's great on its own merits, but its been kind of difficult for me to divorce this record from the hype cycle, or the glaring fact that this "sub-genre" isn't new by any stretch of the imagination. I'm sure that if I had never read anything about how mind-blowing James Blake was supposed to be (especially today's P4K review), I'd have a more savory perception of him; but alas, that's not how things work.

    Suuuuuuuuuup, Aaron? =) Here's my current breakdown for probably the best and most interesting year in the last three years: • Josh Ritter • Holly Miranda • The Mynabirds • Big Boi • Beach House • Thao • Janelle Monae • Charlotte Gainsbourg • Shapes and Sizes • Lost in the Trees • Gotan Project • Four Tet • Pretty Lights and some other random stuff whose names escape me at the moment.

    hi Aaron, you've been selected to be part of a music research dataset. In this dataset, we collected your listening habits via last.fm API. There is already a published dataset that contains the top-50 artists for a list of ~360,000 users (see http://mtg.upf.edu/node/1671 ). The new dataset were you'd appear it'll be similar to this one, but containing your listening history, anonymized. In any case, if you prefer not being part of this new dataset, please let me know ASAP. Thanks in advance! Cheers, Oscar

    I think there is plenty of good music around, but I just haven't had much desire to find it, with a few exceptions. And for some reason, I've been on a 60's garage/psych kick for quite a while (like probably the last 9-10 months). I've been acquiring pretty much any obscure band in those category that I can find. And believe me, there are literally hundreds of them. Found a lot of great stuff though. I'm sure I'll eventually migrate back to some more modern music.

    Yes, it is sad. Mainly due to my not listening to much music any more recent than 20-30 years old lately. Though I would like to point out we are now "Low", not "Very Low". Probably due to my spinning a bunch of Beach House this weekend.

    I like them, though I haven't heard the new album yet. I really enjoyed their previous one, Strawberry Jam, though probably my favorite AC related release was that last Panda Bear album, which I absolutely loved. I've heard a lot of good things about their latest, and plan on checking it out soon.
