    DEAFHEAVEN - Ordinary Corrupt Human Love

    I'll try to gather the coherent ideas that I agree with: The progression from each Deafheaven album leaves the listener with no real idea where the next one will go (and its possible they are trying to maximize with this album what made Sunbather so listenable to non metalheads) Deafheaven isn't metal and definitely not black metal (or its black metal for people who dont like black metal/are genre-classifying on vocals alone) - so I understand why metal genre purists will complain Some of the tracks don't have a particularly strong progression for their length Night people does not belong on this album, whether you like the track or not

    DEAFHEAVEN - Ordinary Corrupt Human Love

    That review is mostly accurate (jilted harsh vocals over lush post-rock melodies is a bit off/night people doesn't belong on the album) despite how much I like this album as a whole. The writer seems more desperate to genre-classify Deafheaven in their iTunes playlist rather than actually critique the album, though.

    PO SOON: Childish Gambino - ...Awaken, My Love!

    oh look, another mega-celebrity. in this case, one who is commonly used to denigrate free thinking by association. You'd be hardpressed to find any ideology I share with that clown. Just pointing out, of all these responses, I haven't read one yet with any merit or substance. sorry for the interruption. back to your regularly scheduled celeb worship.

    the guy who posted right above you is buying product Y (just check out his 2018 political lingo!!). i guess my general point is - stop letting Celebrity X determine how you think the world should be, because your celebrity heroes are bought and paid for. it has little to do with which celebrity is promoting left/right or any other side of a two-sided issue, more to do with keeping the two sides at odds. When you are only given two extreme choices, it is easy to pick one. and that's why people still buy into this ridiculous system even after the "qualifications" of our 2 recent presidential candidates were out there for all to see.

    actually i was providing you with the definition of "selling out". not sure how i could have made that more clear, other than to say it is obvious that mega-celebs (which childish has become) are literally told what to say/write about (or don't even write all of their material) in many cases, and they accept money for doing so. there are plenty of artists who don't do that.

    i remember believing all my celebrity and sports heroes were just espousing their authentic ideals and never got paid to say or do anything. and then i remembered they never said anything divisive before they were famous! Strange how that happens

    guys don't worry - it is possible to wade through his potpourri vomit of output to find a few gems (i'd really only give this credit to Atlanta recently) - im just calling him a sellout.

    Australian politicians are tired of American business keeping the money the politicians (dont) deserve. All in the name of nationalism, as usual.

    PO Now - Gorillaz - The Now Now

    several tracks in and as expected, chock full of boring, pulsing, repetitive 20teens pop melodies. haven't heard one original musical thought yet.

    PO: Freddie Gibbs - Freddie

    You Only Live Twice was the best rap album/ep of the last few years. that is not up for debate. it will be hard to top but this deserves a listen.
