Nov 21, 2008 - morning on Broken Social Scene

so cool

Apr 25, 2008 - think on Kings of Leon
Kings Rock!

Great Band and some feel good music. Live performance is awesome.

Apr 07, 2008 - supermatt on Kings of Leon
Huge Fan!

Tried to see them in LA with Bob Dylan but got lost and missed them. I would reccommend them to anyone.

Feb 29, 2008 - Zombie Chow on Guns N' Roses
Guns 'n DURRRRRRRRRRR....

The only good thing to come out of GnR was the smell of Mike Patton's feces cooking in their microwave.

GnR makes me flaccid. It angers me that there was a time in history where that rabid chihuahua of a human being, Axle Rose, was considered a "singer". If you ask me, I think an "axle rose" is a euphamism for an animal that got stuck on a car after getting run over. Which coincidentally is exactly what his voice sounds like....

God I wish he and his lame band overdosed while they were still an opening act.

Feb 29, 2008 - YogiBear on Kanye West
Impressively Clever Lyrics!

The beat to Kanye West's music is always pretty catchy and easy to get into, but if you listen carefully to his lyrics - you'll find that they are ingenious! He refers to the most random, yet clever topics/themes -- a lot of them with interesting sociological references. He's definitely an artist that's honing his craft.

Nov 14, 2007 - cat408 on Bloc Party
Fantastic!

Bloc Party is one of my favorite bands, I can listen to their music over and over again and never get tired of it. They have a new single out called Flux that is going to be a big hit at nightclubs all over!

Sep 21, 2007 - Heather.Wiggin on Bloc Party
One of my favorite bands

"Silent Alarm" is one of those albums; the kind you can listen to over and over again. "A Weekend in the City" has a different tenor, but retains the quintessence of Bloc Party. Their live performances are energetic and more than worth the price of admission.
