Can't remember if I mentioned it earlier in the thread but you should try Amelia's in Allston if you get a chance, similarly great tacos and p my favorite burrito currently (maybe behind Pelon).

Haha, right? I buy probably 10 records a year, I'd gladly pay $300 for those and a cd quality streaming service but a dude can only dream.

High quality is a big perk over spotify, but perhaps not a $10 a month perk. I'm kind of a sound nerd and I'm still not sure I'd do great in a spotify premium (or 320 files in general) vs. cd test....

$240 a year is a lot, I don't spend that on new music most years at this point. If I didn't already own physical copies of 75% of the music I listen to this would potentially be worth it, but I'm...

Is This It>>>>DCFC 2005-Present

Though I suppose the best 10 or so DC songs from that period would be a similar level album

Yes, but I don't think that empathizing with the subject matter necessarily means that it's a great song. Like I said, I totally feel like a jerk about it. I understand the feeling completely and...

Piano line is super MOR 90s soft rock to me and I think the big payoff is real melodramatic. It's got nice verses but the song as a whole, ending especially, has always struck me as a swing and a...

Real talk, I think What Sarah Said is pretty bad

Plans is basically "Transatlanticism 2 but much less good" imo. Marching Bands, Crooked Teeth, and Brothers are the only ones that are on that level...

There's something really weird about how cool the individual sounds/tones/production flourishes are on this thing and how boring and homogenized they manage to sound as a whole.

Cath and Bixby are basically the only great music they've made since Plans

Tbh I don't think I could like a new Death Cab release. They've just lost me and most things about this remind me of the reasons I don't like their recent work, even if overall it doesn't sound...

King Kunta is absolutely one of my favorites at this point. In fact I've warmed up hard to the beginning of the record, first three tracks are awesome. Most of the little things that annoyed me like...

It was a B- show with some elements of an A level show, overall I enjoyed it a lot and I assume season 2 will be more of the same.

Blushing Monk blew me away. I dig Rubaeus, but Blushing Monk is dessert beer done to perfection.

Thought both were pretty good not great but for the most part they totally had the right feel to them so my expectations for the rest of the season are pretty high.

Kinda how I feel. Although I do expect it to click at some point. I recognize it's that good, I just don't come back to it yet.

Getting pretty close to out on this. It's not bad it just doesn't do anything for me. I generally love Forte and the premise started awesome but beyond that it really hasn't hooked me at all. First...

Amazon lists the cd as in stock and ready to ship....that said, Best Buy lists a deluxe with a release of next week so it might be worth waiting.

listen 2/3 my complaints are primarily down to "this dick ain't freeeeee," the backing vox on King Kunta, and the awful lead guitar on I. There's other stuff here and there that isn't perfect, but...

First verse of this new one is a pretty great example of Ben 2.0 vocals and it ain't pretty

The vocal shifts definitely felt more effective on GKMC. They almost feel superfluous here, there is so much going on texturally that from a purely sound standpoint they don't make things interesting...
