New At The Drive-In album today, only listened once but first impressions are that it's very good.

I definitely don't think it's bad, but at the moment I can't work out whether it's going to grow on me or whether I just think they've played it a bit safe. Either way it's good to have them back*

Yeah, definitely see what you're saying about playing it safe as it just feels like they've continued where ROC left off, 17 years later.

This is long as f*** but a good read: http://thequietus.com/articles/22339-at-the-drive-in-inter-alia-album-review

Good read. I'll never agree with this wholesale insistence in music journalism that ROC is this huge, self-defining album from them though. To me it's just the album that made them big. They were always At the Drive-In before that imo,  and Acrobat Tenement, Vaya, and especially In/Casino/Out are just as relevant to who they are. It's a f***ing amazing album, but to me it's just their most popular one. The way it's seen as being like their Nevermind, or Shape of Punk to Come or whatever doesn't sit right with me, like.

Ah reet, well I think the complete opposite tbh :lol:

I think it's perfect whereas none of their other stuff is, even though it's good  One of my favourite albums ever. 

I actually think Nirvana's output is more level across the board - I listen to all 3 of those albums almost equally, and listen to non-ROC ATDI very rarely.

New album has had some good reviews as well btw:

I've never been able to get past the feeling that At the Drive-In just really, really wanted to be Fugazi. It's totally not a fair judgment--it's just the influence always strikes me when I hear them.

:lol:

I understand people thinking it like, it's more that whenever you read about it, the plaudits are so concentrated on that one album that it seems a bit groupthink-ish.  I dunno, I suppose it's not limited to them like, the same thing happens all the f***ing time with Mogwai and Young Team. The way every single music journalist under the sun insists that it's their best album just seems suspicious. :lol:

I think this would probably make my top-10 list of most-evil-sounding songs ever.

KRS One has done a tribute track for loads of dead rappers, included very much still-alive Ad Rock rather than MCA.

been listening to a band called little hurricane recently, sort of white stripes-esque but not as heavy imo

really good to put on and just chill to
So raise your fists and march around
Dont dare take what you need
I'll jail and bury those committed
And smother the rest in greed
Crawl with me into tomorrow
Or i'll drag you to your grave
I'm deep inside your children
They'll betray you in my name

Sleep now in the fire
