  • ExplosiveOranges Damn......... Well, what would stop you from retiring now? I'm not gonna pretend I know about the intricacies of Sputnik's promotion system, but I've heard about people like pixiesfanyo and The Jungler getting demoted for inactivity, and I'd hate to see that happen to you.
    November 2 06:52 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Hahaha, damn! Just out of curiosity, why are you still on staff if you haven't written a review in over two years? Not saying you don't deserve the title, but I figured you would've gone Emeritus by now.
    November 2 10:39 AM
  • ExplosiveOranges Ah. Damn dude, you've been here for over 7 years?
    October 31 02:33 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Why so few ratings?

    November 12 05:02 PM
  • FourthReich you're the man dude, seriously! :D
    October 28 03:47 PM
  • sniper that would certainly do just fine as well. i never write reviews because making sense of my feelings about albums is hard. for an album like 808s that i have so much to say about especially.
    September 23 06:43 PM
  • ethos dude, you should check out arthur russell's world of echo i think you would really enjoy it
    September 20 01:32 AM
  • sniper lewis you should really review 808s II for real.
    September 19 03:15 AM
  • Winesburgohio I will interpret that ellipsis as enticement rather than ambiguity ;). And m'pleasure m'lad!
    August 24 09:41 PM
  • Winesburgohio Without meaning to seem garish or forward or whatever: I am v. enamoured with your writing style and consider yr prose pretty influential in the way I approach music criticism. To that end if you would consider penning a couple of other reviews well that would be top-notch
    August 21 06:59 PM
  • oltnabrick ahhh you finally 5d 808s II :]

    April 2 11:50 AM
  • Ire when did you become staff again damn i think that's called pulling a hanson
    April 2 03:38 AM
  • Xenophanes When did I become staff? Really? :'(
    April 1 04:06 PM
  • Hep Kat that nigga cray. my cousin paul is a big fan of his. i have a couple of his albums, and i think they're pretty decent

    March 27 11:49 PM
  • CK Are we going to be expecting any staff reviews anytime soon from you?
    March 27 08:19 AM
  • Iluvatar yeah dude i listened to it both ways and with the noise it's ****ing awesome **** the haters
    March 22 02:21 PM
  • silentpotato cool man, i know my sarcasm can be overbearing and obnoxious so genuinely never knew if u completely hated my guts or not so good hear cuz uve always been good in my books

    March 13 01:21 AM
  • Iluvatar lewis you make me sad
    March 5 02:36 AM
  • Omaha Nah, just telling you I can cover if you find yourself too busy. I know you'll do a stellar job with it. if it doesn't pan out, though, just let me know! It's an interesting album that could use as much exposure as it can get.
    March 4 01:22 PM
  • Omaha Hey man, you still doing Youth Lagoon? =]
    March 4 01:10 PM
  • Omaha Same here, dude. i remember lurking here a long time ago, and reading the staff reviews, thinking "what if that were me someday?" it's weird to imagine that actually happening, especially because I know how those reviews really inspired me.
    February 23 10:22 PM
  • Omaha Hey man! We've never talked directly before, but I'd just like you to know I've always admired your passion for music. You seem to always have a unique and fresh mindset, and it's definitely something this site could use. Looking forward to your first review back!

    February 20 09:32 PM
  • BaselineOOO Why don't you just check my ratings? they might bore you since you're only pop and indie but anyways: Boredoms - Vision Creation Newsun; Vladislav Delay - Anima; Maeror Tri - The Beauty of Sadness;

  • kingsoby1 check out jeremiah jae - raw money raps. you will dig. also Niechec will blow your mind.
    August 13 03:30 PM
  • kingsoby1 i like a lot of new stuff, but just cant get behind shabazz palaces or death grips. i've tried a few times to sit and listen to black up, and it's not bad (like death grips!)... just dont love it.
    June 14 05:57 PM
  • kingsoby1 :( the internet needs me
    June 13 08:20 PM

    May 24 10:56 PM
  • silentpotato no dude, but maybe i was just reading into things. i just wanted to make sure i didn't offend you really badly at some point or something cuz i always thought you were rad and you've been around even longer that since i got here 4 years ago.
    May 16 11:44 PM
  • silentpotato is there a particular reason why you've had a hate on for me for however long now or have you just gone bitter. because i recall getting along with you once upon a time.
    May 15 03:53 PM
  • MutnikSpusic Ay Lewis, I love you!
    April 28 03:39 PM
  • robin sometimes your words hurt :(
    March 4 01:17 PM
  • robin one day, lewis. one day we will actually like all the same indie music instead of liking all the opposite indie music.
    March 3 10:18 PM
  • chambered69 omg so good
    February 14 03:06 AM
  • Sleaper hey brosef, u gonna review anything again? ur reviews are pretty much the only ones i read/enjoy. Even most the actual reviewers seem to be ass kissers / fake.
    November 25 08:14 PM
  • robin i'm seeing james blake this coming week. hoping to fall back in love with the record =)
    November 19 01:55 PM
  • Simsalabim462 I may regret this after further months/years of consideration, but your taste in music(primarily Indie/Alt Rock) is my sole influence on this site as of now. You're pretty much my undeclared hero! Allow me to explain. I live in Huntsville, Texas, you feel that's all the explanation necessary! Thanks again!!!
    October 16 01:16 PM
  • Electric City so i saw your rating for main attrakionz and i recommend LWH. i mean CMG is all on it, you probably would be too
    October 10 04:14 PM
  • chambered89 cant wait to read your monolith
    September 28 08:59 PM
  • robin this jenny hval lady is a little strange.
    September 10 08:38 PM
  • wabbit I adore your King of limbs soundoff
    September 7 09:54 PM
  • sehguh any idea the name of the original track, on the avalanches live mix around 19:10. the "womp womp" thing, i've heard it before.. just can't think of the name!
    August 9 11:18 AM
  • Enotron yo lew have you checked out a band called dilute? i feel like you would love them, they're really something special.
    August 4 03:16 PM
  • AggravatedYeti my heart melts with that 4 you gave Dymphna.
    July 28 09:36 PM
  • robin have a feeling you'd find a lot to love about the new war on drugs album
    July 28 04:25 PM
  • bab808 haha yea goblin might have grown off me too, but i'm listening to bastard, and it's still the s***. black up is pretty dense though. i have hope that it'll stay fresh.
    July 12 11:40 PM
  • bab808 love your taste lewis. also like your ratings on shabazz and tyler, the creator.
    July 12 11:11 PM
  • Maniac! Yeah music sucks ;). Lemme know when you sign up and I will make you an author :)
    July 5 01:18 PM
  • Maniac! Well then that would be great, as long as you were planning on doing movie reviews for now. Obviously we have a lot of people doing music already. Later on, the staff will be free to review whatever they want.
    July 5 12:57 PM
  • Maniac! Were you serious about contributing to the site?
    July 5 12:40 PM
  • AggravatedYeti don't you bulls*** me lewis.
    July 4 11:33 AM
  • AggravatedYeti I need to give Portishead's 2nd record another look I think...
    July 3 12:34 PM
  • AggravatedYeti Gang Gang Dance? Perhaps Lewis? Perhaps.

  • Lucid hey that's me on fb ;)
    June 20 02:09 AM
  • Sleaper sweet, thanks alot dude, gonna have a mad weekend checkin all that out.. avey tares album last year was one of my favorites
    June 16 06:19 PM
  • aok they played 'did you see the words' when i saw them last, which aside from 'the purple bottle' is probly my favorite on the album but 'we tigers' and 'brothersport' were the coolest moments for me. plus black dice had their way with the visuals which were mind numbing. catchya around
    June 16 03:50 PM
  • Sleaper Hey man, i really appreciate your taste in music and the reviews you write.. was wondering if you could point out any albums or artists similar to AC- Feels? im literally obsessed with it, but i just cant seem to find anything that sits on the same level as it.
    June 15 02:38 AM
  • robertsona if you're feeling sinister
    June 6 06:38 PM
  • aok and i'm seeing james blake soon, but i'm relying on a friend for that so maybe, maybe not
    May 28 04:22 AM
  • aok i like kid a more than mpp and feels, but we should still talk about music sometimes. it seems like we both like some similar bands and i'm psyched to be seeing animal collective and feels in the not so distant future. i'm a real person that's not hard to find. shout or fb me if you need me

  • partyboy24 Dude how is halcyon digest only a 1? It's really good
    May 24 10:43 AM
  • Polymath Only being sarcastic
    May 12 11:42 AM
  • Polymath That's quite an interesting list, I was hoping you'd show more love to MPP but you know...
    May 12 01:44 AM
  • Polymath Where would you rank Spirit They're Gone amongst your favorite AC albums?
    May 11 04:17 PM
  • cvlts fellow mliw fan. you should check out new Departures brah
    May 9 04:40 AM

    April 22 02:08 PM
  • Ire i wanna be hip. will you rec me fun indie and shoegaze?
    April 22 11:17 AM
  • robin new tvotr album? :( listen to me on this one, i think it is the only time i've gotten it right.
    April 21 12:50 PM
  • Superbus how the fudge do you have Feels, Panda Bear, and MPP at a 5, but Tomboy at a one? I mean I'm team Avey too but c'monnnnn
    April 21 11:44 AM
  • AggravatedYeti mmmm new Battles.
    April 20 12:35 PM
  • Electric City :(
    April 10 11:08 PM
  • Electric City you should change your rating of tomboy now so it can be bnm'd =)
    April 10 10:17 PM
  • Lucid Did you 5 Gonjasufi's album after a drug experience? I've considered it.
    April 8 02:47 PM
  • Electric City someones been reading a lot of cmg lately. so contrarian!
    April 5 10:27 PM
  • Polymath Ah alright that sounds better. Good to know you're not a blatant prick like theacademy.
    April 5 04:53 PM
  • Polymath Indeed it is but the 5 is probably because im such an AC fanboy, and listening to Tomboy gave me the feeling of when I heard MPP for the 7th time and clicked for me. Thanks man. And a 1? Fair play.
    April 5 04:43 PM
  • Polymath sorry had a bit of a rager moment there and removed em. i can see your point but no need to troll if i rate it a 5. im bouncing back and forth on 4.5-5.
    April 5 04:31 PM
  • Polymath what are your opinions on tomboy good sir?
    April 5 01:38 PM
  • robin that should say "and lindesfarne, and it was awful."
    March 30 03:42 PM
  • robin my friend and i also tried to create a combination of the wolves
    March 30 03:32 PM
  • robin i was talking vivian girls. james blake feels like a steady rating for me and i can rarely decide on a thing.
    March 30 03:21 PM
  • robin i should probably say something like 'i might have overrated it', but i love the record to the nth degree so i see no reason why you shouldn't :)
    March 30 02:20 PM
  • robin (jb is instant classic) xxxx
    March 30 12:41 PM
  • Kiran i am deeply considering it
    March 29 01:58 AM
  • HSThomas I know. I've apologised to him and explained everything to him.
    March 28 03:50 PM
  • HSThomas Thanks planewreck, hopefully this won't happen again. It's just with the past week and now this cropping up, every thing is just becoming annoying at the moment but thanks again :).
    March 28 03:44 PM
  • HSThomas Yeah, sorry about that. It was due to a lot of paranoia on my part as someone has been negging my reviews as of late and not giving a reason for it, which is what I want to know. I just thought that the person who negged robertsona's review may have been the same person who negged my own review due to it having certain flaws.
    March 28 03:22 PM
  • conradtao YES, a 4.5 for Deerhoof vs. Evil. Thank you Mr. Parry.
    March 28 02:18 PM
  • AggravatedYeti -- click the little bird's name.
    March 23 06:36 PM
  • AggravatedYeti *shrugs* well at least we can agree YALL is good. Also have you check out PJ Harvey's latest? ****ing excellence.
    March 23 04:58 PM
  • Gyromania
    March 23 03:33 PM
  • AggravatedYeti 1.5 Treats? Lewis you're killing me.

    March 23 02:24 AM
  • Kiran gashcat is so so great
    March 22 04:06 AM
  • kingsoby1 i'll have to give it a try. havent had a lot of time to review over the past year, but i'll put it on the list
    March 13 08:47 AM
  • Ponton hmm, this should work:
    March 11 10:31 AM
  • Ponton good morning, lew. something tells me you would fall in love with Songs of Green Pheasant's S/T album. home-recorded British lofi folk with some psy tendencies. sublime 8)
    March 3 07:38 AM
  • robin you heard the new vivian girls track? i never thought they'd do something so good. (this is obviously me overreacting) if not, for you:
    February 23 04:17 PM
  • AggravatedYeti been on a deerhoof binge. lots of pool as well. not enough money but lots of cali bud. how r u?
    February 22 04:05 PM
  • AggravatedYeti hey you there guy. Would you mind rec'ing me a single record that for whatever reason you think I'd enjoy? pppllleeeaassse?? : ) amassing a little list for things to keep occupied with and well I'm plum out of ideas (or drive, whichever it was) muchas gracias senor and many hearts lewis.
    February 17 01:27 PM
  • robin listened to yall. i like the 'groupie' track alot. it's got the mathy sound i dig.
    February 2 03:14 PM
  • Superbus Feels was actually my first AC album, second most played behind Strawberry Jam. I've actually just recently discovered how much i enjoy spirit. But yeah, my favorite AC album changes like every other month hahaha, all depends on the mood i'm in
    February 2 02:23 AM
  • AggravatedYeti man we would have the best listening parties. furthermore primo party soundtracks.
    January 31 02:55 PM
  • AggravatedYeti Paul's Tomb James Blake Native Speaker = 2 breezy hours of snow shoveling. I just felt the need to tell you this.
    January 31 02:38 PM
  • Superbus Hey neighbor! so i was scrolling through your ratings and saw that you had near every Animal Collective album rated a 5 too haha, jw which one's your fav? I'm partial to Spirit They're Gone...
    January 28 04:04 PM
  • AggravatedYeti couldn't have put it better; really warming up to the album. As for myself: work, video games, snow, repeat. January has been cold as ****. Oh and Public Strain every day for sure.
    January 24 09:05 PM
  • AggravatedYeti also sup bb?
    January 24 02:59 PM
  • AggravatedYeti I'm curious as to your thoughts on Braid's new LP. I enjoy it quite a bit but I can trace a direct line from music to influence pretty easily. but it all just comes together so well...
    January 24 02:58 PM
  • Kiran looove it.
    January 21 01:13 AM
  • AggravatedYeti can't stop spinning paul's tomb.
    January 20 05:35 PM
  • Kiran would i dig this frog eyes business
    January 19 04:18 AM
  • AggravatedYeti if you haven't heard Destroyer's new album yet I think it's something you'll eat right up. that, James Blake and new Asobi are setting 2011 off oh-so right.
    January 11 01:38 PM
  • Polymath it seems like you really like ac
    January 10 03:51 PM
  • Enotron really enjoyed your public strain write-up, summed up my feelings on the record eloquently
    January 4 06:25 PM

  • Curse. i feel like I already know you
    October 27 04:09 AM
  • Curse. I ****ing knew it. If it doesn't make you think pontificate or make fun of religious-types it isn't worth your time because you are obviously an uber-hipster
    October 27 04:06 AM
  • Curse. I know, I cut you deep.
    October 27 04:03 AM
  • Curse. I was the guy a couple days ago that said you hate fun
    October 27 04:03 AM
  • Curse. I am twenty, so I still have that leftover teenage angst that I can't just drink away. That is why I am on Sputnik
    October 27 03:51 AM
  • Curse. but with Pit it always inevitably turns into him trying to attack your intelligence for liking something objective
    October 27 03:42 AM
  • Curse. I can't believe you let yourself get sucked into Pit's s***.BTW, I was totally just ****ing with you on Hanson's facebook, no harm
    October 27 03:31 AM
  • Xenophanes so are you truly leaving :' (
    October 26 09:31 PM
  • crank yeah for always; forever and ever!
    October 19 09:38 PM
  • robin haha well that's good to know =). i guess my fives are horribly indiesicive and adolescent, but i like them. we don't share many 5s anymore though. and i like 'oliver twist'. i didn't really expect much from the album but it has a great, great atmosphere. maybe the rest will come.
    October 18 09:00 AM
  • TomAndJerry yea kill your co workers takes some time to progress, but i think 2-4 is the most consistent part of the thing.
    October 6 01:08 AM
  • TomAndJerry yea this is easily his most accessible release to date. i love kill your co workers and pie face though. 5 and 7 are really bad imo though
    October 6 12:47 AM
  • TomAndJerry a 4 for flylo's ep? idk bout that man. i didnt like the back half too much. what was your favorite track?
    October 5 10:59 PM
