And as for the question, I prefer when an artist takes their time. I prefer to hear things the artist believes in, easily.

Understatement in the Brand New part. The Shone thread was THE biggest thread in the website's history. Jason can correct me if that's wrong but I'm pretty sure.
To be fair though, some of the Shone news posts basically directed people to comment in the original Shone post. I feel like that contributed to it being the biggest thread, although it's undeniable that the hype was/is crazy and doesn't refute you saying it's an understatement.

This may not be the best example, but I'm thinking about The Mars Volta and how they relate to this. Sure, they don't wait thaaaat long to put out albums but it's starting to get spaced out more, and people check them out so much, yet when Omar Rodriguez-Lopez spams albums every few months, they don't get nearly as much recognition or as well of a reception as The Mars Volta's albums. It's not the most exact example but it's cool to be able to slightly see both sides of the spectrum from essentially one artist.

I don't even want to think about TMV's last album...
I think it gets too much shit for basically not sounding like a The Mars Volta album, but to each his own. Frances will always be my favorite, but anyway, the only thing I was really getting at with that is the comparison of what TMV puts into a record vs what Omar puts into solo records that get released nonstop.

I'm trying to think of other artists I'd genuinely include in this and I think Keagan pretty much hit the nail on the head with his 10 and I can't think of anyone else right now.

Hahahaha, I mean it definitely IS a Mars Volta album, I just want quality like Deloused and Frances. Didn't he already release 3 albums this year?
As a matter of fact, he did. I didn't even know that hahaha.

EDIT: 28 albums in the last 9 years...

John Legend has waited 5 years since his last album of original material and I am okay with the wait I had to endure just because I know it'll be great.

Dude's an animal. It's like Buckethead, except he doesn't get half as much attention as Omar.
If he has a girlfriend or wife, she must hate him.

what good is 3 new albums in one year if they're all super shit?

At the same time, though, The Weeknd.
