I'm aware of that, and I think this whole thing is pretty much just marketing/hype for the demos cassette that will likely go on sale within the next few days/weeks.

Hate to be a buzzkill, but people are reading waaaaay too far into this. The lyric books appear to be screen printed, which is a pretty expensive printing process. Chances are the band waited so...

Really not understanding some of the hate this song is getting, this is dope. Sounds straight up like early Snoop. Also I have the feeling this song will make a lot more sense in the context of the...

Honestly is she even capable of writing about anything other than California? The lyrics in that clip legitimately sound like a parody of Best Coast.

Really not digging it as much as I hoped to. Then again, I wasn't feeling Take a Walk all that much at first, but Gossamer was a fantastic album.

Seriously? Literally countless artists across all genres have cited Kanye as an enormous influence throughout the years. It's already been said, but Ye's sound is seriously all over Acid Rap. Most...

Nirvana weren't the first band to be grunge. Elliott Smith wasn't the first sad guy to use a guitar. See how easy it is to dismiss musical accomplishments when you know little about them?

Damn, it's like they never left. Pretty solid, catchy single. Please keep in mind their singles have never been representative of what the album actually sounds like (Dashboard is one of the worst...

Realllly hope this isn't the lead single. I was really expecting more exciting stuff from him, especially after the excellent Old Love/New Love from GTAV. This sounds like he took a step backwards.

I genuinely believe people don't understand the difference between being indicted and being convicted. The inconsistencies in the evidence and eyewitness accounts are proof enough that a trial...

Is there an interactive version of this somewhere that I'm missing? I can't see what any of the dots are except for the labeled ones.

Sales number is way more important than rank (even if it was their lowest first week rank to date). It sold 110,000 copies first week, by FAR their lowest first week since their debut, and plummeted...

Chvrches sound like The XX?? Are you serious, or have you actually just never listened to Chvrches??

Also considering their new album is a total flop, I would say LP is definitely not "lasting...

I think this is all a testament to just how huge this band has become in the last few years. It's still amazing to me, especially considering they haven't even released anything since 2009. I...

I honestly just don't think they have it in them anymore. They're all so much older and more mature now, they can't write the same way they did when they were 20. It just sounds like five old...

I'm surprised I'm digging this so much. The first single made it sound like more of their paint-by-numbers shtick, but the rest of the album is super catchy and diverse. Liking it a lot better than...

Repetitive song structure is used to illustrate people's lives being pointless and repetitive (or a lie if you will). The constant loop and "Be Aware" on the giant cowbell also add to the propaganda...

LOL at all the people completely missing the point of this song's repetitive style.

Personally I'm pumped for the album. Congratulations was fantastic, and they're doing a great at ditching the...
