It also seems like he needs to not post every single thing he does publicly, unless this mayhem is all part of some calculated marketing scheme he's doing... which, let's face it... it's Kanye, hah....

I think if you just keep in mind that Kanye is essentially satire, it'll make it a lot easier to listen to. I mean, there's no way he ISN'T joking about most of his lyrics. The "bleached asshole"...

Man this song is legit. Chorus is unreal. I'm actually really surprised at how many solid cuts they have on Long Live. Probably the best album they've released in 10 years.

God I love this band.
I thought the production on Disillusion was subpar, and whatever compression they used on Tanner's vocals didn't really do him justice... but the two tracks they released off...

hahaha ah you got me!
Yeah those drum auditions are nuts haha Minneman would also have been a great choice. I think I was pulling for him when I watched it the first time

Yeah, LaBrie is still the weakest part about this band. He's so god awful and cheesy. Honestly, I always thought they'd be better off with a vocalist like Russell Allen from Symphony X.

To be fair, he does have like a million notes to learn per song, and he's still probably the most talented guy on the keys out there right now. Sheet music isn't uncommon for pianists to have in...

I hope they can sort it out. Also a common thing I'm seeing (not necessarily here) is how Scott's passing might spin this... The guys have been working without him for several years, so it's really...

Yeah, I agree. Wish he chose a more interesting Radiohead tune instead of doing "Creep." I mean, they have one of the most incredible discographies of all time, and people still go for that song...

Yeah, but once you are up you have 10 minutes to respond or you're out, meaning that for 6+ hours out of the day, I had to be within 10 minutes of a computer at any given moment... which simply was...

I know that feel. There were literally GIFs on Facebook of the shot of " *I know it's been out for a month but I'll still be nice* killing *you know who* " on the bridge. In fact, I got killed by a...

It's still overkill. Disney is literally doubling the total number of Star Wars movies in 5 years... Hate to be so closed minded, but I feel like actual films should be reserved for official episodic...

Agreed. The last time I saw him, he definitely seemed like he was going through the motions. Also a lot of his restructures seem "lazy." Like, he can get away with doing less with certain songs....

This is horrible. Also, why does Kanye think that people actually care about his business endeavors?

Just another reason why I hate Record Store Day. I work at a record store and the excessive...

lmao he literally just keeps talking. I feel bad for the interviewer who was genuinely trying to conduct a decent segment, but he just wouldn't let her ask anything... Even when she was on his side!...

I love Claudio and I love this song... but this didn't do anything for me. His phrasing in the chorus was a little weird, even for Claudio's standards. I liked that he took a different approach with...

Honestly, Paramore has been the Hayley Williams show the entire time. Taylor York isn't even an orignal member.

Literally laughed out loud at the back up singers and string players... A little much for The Used, eh? This intimate acoustic setting does not fit them at all.

I thought the first post-Portnoy album was really solid ("Breaking All Illusions" is a career highlight, for sure!), but the self-titled didn't stick. So I'm personally hit or miss... then again,...
