I agree with all of that. You don't think that being "whitewashed" or "yuppie" are inherently negative? Or that having a concept for your album that is fallacious is an undesirable trait?

Calling an album's "thesis" a fallacy is insulting, regardless of if you follow it up with, "But that's what's great about it." It still suggests the artist is being disingenuous. "Yuppie" carries...

Well, in it, she writes that the whole premise of the album is based on a fallacy, refers to the "pop album" declaration as a humble brag, uses the words "yuppie" and "passive-aggressive" to describe...

I don't know, but that write-up for Taylor Swift's album seemed really backhanded.

I still think Obsidian is better - the songs feel more fully fleshed out and overall just stronger writing, but I really like this as well.

Hmm, not a fan at all of the rest of that bill, though.

I haven't seen them in a few years, but I would absolutely go if they did a Waterfront anniversary tour. That was pretty much the defining album of my middle-school years.

'Cause when I left her
It felt worse than wife cheating
It felt worse than high treason

'Cause when she was gone
It felt worse than van tippin'
It felt worse than bad trippin'
Worse than father...

I think "Hooped Earrings" is the least interesting song on the self-titled as well.

The Front Bottoms are definitely the type of band to use the last track on the album to decompress, rather than go...

Yeah, I don't think the new track is very good. It doesn't seem like Kendrick, and the production is super cheesy.

I spit out my drink when I saw that album artwork for "Rope." Fucking hilarious.

I really really liked their last album, but I actually haven't listened to it in awhile. I am definitely looking forward to this.

I'm not saying Cohen's review isn't mean, but at least he takes Fallon seriously as an artist (I'm aware he tears the album to pieces, but he's not obligated to like it), which is the least Hyden...

I feel like Hyden's review is even more offensive to the band than Cohen's. At least Cohen acknowledges the album as a sincere work of art (however much he thought it was terrible), rather than...

So what if it's snarky? That doesn't invalidate the points he makes.

The response to the Grantland review on this page has been overwhelmingly positive, and I think it's pretty clear it's because the writer had nicer things to say about the album.
