Re: “Daft Punk

Not so certain with your review. It seems a bit pre-emptive. Initially I wasn't a huge fan of the record, but after taking it in as a whole over a week, I came to really appreciate the entire piece as a cohesive unit. If prior expectations of a 'Daft Punk' record are abandoned, the songs are actually catchy, beautifully arranged, and ripe for remixes by....Daft Punk. They began their career sampling old 70's disco/funk tracks and chopping them into new masterpieces. It seems Daft Punk created their own Disco/Funk album worthy of sampling so as to educate the current EDM youth - and more than likely, the Daft remixes of RAM will sound nothing like the original record. Homework, Discovery - this album definitely is NOT. But musically speaking, RAM has some gems worth a few listens. Worth another listen: Instant Crush, Lose Yourself to Dance, Fragments of Time, Doin' it Right.

Re: “Rob Zombie

I totally disagree on holding off for this album. It's not Hellbilly Deluxe 2 but its hard rock all around. I'm a bug fan of Zombie and I'm pleased!

Re: “Inspectah Deck with 7L & Esoteric

I feel that a lot of Wu-Tang solo efforts fit your description. Overall, they're good, but nothing stands out. I'll give Fishscale the exception to this notion. But OBFCL 1 and 2 tend to seem like one long song at first listen.

Re: “The Means

Hello there! I'm "whoever is penning these tunes". Thanks so much for the kind words about our music, it really means a lot. I must say I'm a little surprised by the interpretation of the album's theme. None of the songs have anything to do with ex-lovers or feeling jilted or bitter.

Quite the opposite, in fact. "Rumours" is about the uncertain early moments of a new relationship, "You Can Have Me" and "Incandescence" are unapologetic love songs, "Tail Lights" is about never living in the same area for too long, while "You Know Who You Are" and "It's On" are rejections of hipster culture and television, respectively. Overall, the album is lyrically positive (although I do harbor quite a resentment toward television and hipsters).

Then again, the thing that I like most about art and music is that everyone that experiences it will come up with their own interpretation, unique to their perspective and situation.

Nevertheless, thank you, thank you, thank you again for listening to our music and having such nice things to say about it.

Band of Horses always delivers. And it was pretty cool seeing them on Letterman the other night! http://bit.ly/S5Ze10

Re: “David Byrne & St. Vincent

Wow! The song "Who" is amazing! The album cover of her jaw being misshaped jaw is a little unusual but definitely worth the listen!
