  • TheSpirit Glad you ended up liking the new SF so much!
    February 18 05:53 PM
  • DarkZeroSin Hey Sowing. Just wondered if you could hook me up with a name change? I know I've been a pain last time it's just that my name looks like my friend on here DarkSideOfLucca and I thought about changing it. If it's too much of a hassle then don't worry about it. Just a request. Thanks in advance!
    February 16 09:16 PM
  • NocteDominum Hi Sowing, did you guys need some help on the new/upcoming releases site posts? I'm sure you've seen the bare bones list I have going in the contrib forum - happy to help if i can
    February 15 06:04 AM
  • toxin. That said, at some point I definitely will since it has your seal of approval haha. I did like a couple of the songs I listened to after I read your review though, so I'll probably listen to the whole thing when I'm a little bit freer... hopefully lol
    February 13 03:28 AM
  • toxin. 2015???? Hahahaha. Wow, well congrats on that anyway. Yeah I miss the old Anberlin crew haha, but I can't say I miss the sputnik culture overall. Glad to hear you're doing well. I'm doing alright; didn't get into preferred PhD programs which kinda sucks but there's always next year. And naw I haven't man, I pretty much stopped listening to new music (not even the new Brand New!) ever since I stopped coming here. Pretty much listen to classical or soundtrack stuff, maybe radio pop in the car

  • granitenotebook ok, will keep in mind. thanks for info
    February 12 05:45 PM
  • granitenotebook are advance copies ok? like from the artist themselves
    February 8 02:11 AM
  • granitenotebook oh ok, sorry, didn't know, will keep in mind in the future
    February 8 02:08 AM
  • granitenotebook not yet. it comes out friday. it leaked
    February 7 01:24 PM
  • Divaman Finally getting to that When We Land album, and liking it a lot on first listen. If you get the chance, I'd love it if you gave a listen to the new Neil Cananagh album I reviewed last month. I think you might enjoy it.
    February 4 03:54 PM
  • DarkZeroSin hey I know you are pretty busy but if you checked out my latest video I would appreciate some feedback!
    February 3 09:54 AM
  • neekafat I've never heard their first so I wouldn't know haha! But I always preferred bands that do new things, I know you do too based what similar tastes we have
    February 1 10:19 PM
  • neekafat I checked Relaxer because of that review you did for it and it's a beaut
    February 1 09:37 PM
  • SoccerRiot Thanks Sowing! Actually, I did have a question. Are contribs able to use the blog in any capacity? I know Fripp was doing a few of those Bowie blogs before he became staff, so I was wondering if there's a separate contrib blog to use or something
    February 1 08:30 PM
  • verdant will do sowing, thanks so much
    February 1 08:01 PM
  • BlushfulHippocrene Thanks a lot Sowing, much appreciated. (:
    February 1 06:16 PM
  • Atari new dangerous summer is pretty good!
    February 1 05:58 PM
  • ScuroFantasma Thanks Sowing (:
    February 1 05:25 PM
  • NocteDominum Thank you Steve, it?s good to be back!
    February 1 04:28 PM
  • clavier Looks like things are working now. Thanks again
    February 1 01:03 PM
  • clavier I actually didn't have permissions to see the forum - might have to inquire around, then
    February 1 12:42 PM
  • neekafat Hey man, great picks for staff! I'm a teensy disappointed but I wouldn't pick myself over any of the new promotions in all honesty so great stuff (: I know that last year I asked for a little input/feedback for my application just so I could get a feel for what I could do in the future to make myself more viable for a contrib choice. I most certainly did not deserve it last year haha, but I'd really appreciate if you had the time to let me know what my weak links are, per se!
    February 1 12:37 PM
  • clavier Thank you Sowing - I've heard things about a fabled forum area for contribs, how does that work?
    February 1 12:16 PM
  • DaveyBoy Thanks mate, although would probably be unfair on you. I guess I should officially emeritus myself. Jom knows (just) the first part of the ****storm and was nice enough to give me all sorts of time to make a comeback, but I think I'm past that now.
    January 28 09:54 PM
  • DaveyBoy Eh, probably best not to ask mate... For your own good. Life's been a s***storm for 25 months now and it just continues. I feel like that if I wrote an indie-folk album about it all, you'd 5 it.
    January 28 03:37 PM
  • toxin. So I dropped by Sputnik since my friend was raving about the Lorde album, and I fell into old habits and checked what this site had to say about it. I noticed you are a moderator now! I imagine this is old news, but congratulations! TBH if you were a mod 5 years I might still be an active member. Anyway, hope things are going well for you.
    January 28 05:35 AM
  • neekafat Hey, I'd really appreciate it if you get a chance to check the new Glen Hansard album's review I did and maybe feature it if you think it's worthy? (:
    January 28 01:30 AM
  • ZombieToyDuck understood, thank you!
    January 24 04:11 PM
  • ZombieToyDuck Hey Sowing I was just wondering when the decisions will be made about who will be accepted as a contributor?
    January 24 04:06 PM
  • Trebor. Would you rather be the interviewer or the interviewee?
    January 20 03:41 PM
  • mmbernie Hey Sowing, have you had the chance to listen to that Prince and Beggar album? It continues to grow on me the more I listen to it. I think they may have started something special here.
    January 20 08:56 AM
  • danielcardoso 8 reviews in a year is not an outstanding stat, which means i'd perfectly understand if you were to drop me haha. But i'd like to know where you stand, since i've seen people in similar situations maintain their positions before (i am not saying this with any mean intent whatsoever, i thought i'd be better to clear that up so as to not come off as sounding unintentionally mean haha).
    January 19 04:01 PM
  • danielcardoso Hi Sowing! I'd like to apologize for my inactivity on Sputnik as of late: a lot of good things have been going on in my life recently (both on a personal level and in terms of my university works), and i just haven't had as much time to write here as usual! That being said, i do think that it will be easier to balance everything more smoothly from now on, and would like to ask you whether or not my contributor spot is at stake atm.
    January 19 03:53 PM
  • SoccerRiot Thanks man
    January 18 06:18 PM
  • SoccerRiot Hey Sowing, do you have a Sputnik email address by any chance? I want to message you something privately and not on the shoutbox. I'll your shoutout once you send it to me, if you'd like
    January 18 05:40 PM
  • bgillesp Hey, check out some Rainbow Kitten Surprise. They're a really unique indie rock/pop group (think kings of Leon crossed with Lana del Ray). They've also got another album coming 4/6/18 that would be great for you to review as part of your undiscovered reviewing kick I think. My favorite is Seven Mary but if you just want to check a song, go for Cocaine Jesus.
    January 16 04:12 PM
  • BallsToTheWall NFC South ride together and they die together.
    January 14 11:38 PM
  • bgillesp Glad you're liking it! They're a favorite band of mine easy and only 1 of 3 I've given multiple 5s. Didn't you pass up Prosthetoc Love for your playlist competition though?
    January 9 08:54 PM
  • ianblxdsoe thanks so much man! yeah i?ll definitely hop on that Benjamin Clementine record once i get over my newfound Jeff/BTMI! craze, that 5 certainly has my interest piqued hahah
    January 7 07:04 PM
  • Voivod Hi man, found this under the "psych rock/indie folk" moniker, so you will probably dig this for your venture into the indie underground -
    January 7 11:06 AM
  • AtomicWaste Haha, just glad you really dig it, man! Take it with a grain of salt when the next Orbs record comes around, though (as I'm likely to think it's the greatest thing since the last Orbs record and you're prooooobably unlikely to agree ;)
    January 7 12:29 AM
  • GhostB1rd How long's my bane? Is it of the lengthy variety or shorter?
    January 6 07:26 PM
  • mmbernie Thanks for the feedback! Sorry I think I got you mixed up with Davey Boy on that one. I have read plenty of your other reviews though.
    January 6 01:05 PM
  • mmbernie Please check out the review I just wrote for the new Prince and Beggar album. I have always valued your opinion since I stumbled upon your review of The Suffere and the Witness.
    January 6 12:57 PM
  • ianblxdsoe glad yr digging the new rosenstock!! it?s crazy how monumental ?USA? and ?Let Them Win? are in comparison to the album hahahha, hope it grows on you man!
    January 4 05:33 PM
  • Lord(e)Po)))ts and ty for expressing interest!
    December 31 09:45 PM
  • Lord(e)Po)))ts it is the album in question that would give context to the latest acad post in my shoutbox lol. if u find some time to check i hope you do enjoy!
    December 31 09:05 PM
  • Lord(e)Po)))ts i legitimately think you would like my new album
    December 31 08:48 PM
  • Dylan620 Nice Delgados rating, glad you enjoyed the album!
    December 27 05:48 PM
  • RadicalEd 2nd half is better. Check scott street it's probably the best song. Also give it a bit off time. Lyrics are really good. (2nd and third song are prolly the weakest)
    December 22 11:04 AM
  • RadicalEd How does cutsey but also kinda melancholic indie folk/pop with really touching, smart lyrics sound to you?
    December 22 11:02 AM
  • RadicalEd Btw. Listen to Phoebe Bridgers - Stranger in the Alps. If that's not at least a 4/5 for you, I dunno what is.
    December 22 11:01 AM
  • neekafat Yo Sowing! Know you're a bit tied up these days, but if you find the time I'd appreciate you considering my new Chris Stapleton review for a feature (:
    December 20 03:33 PM
  • elliootsmeuth That pretty much sums up my musical habits.
    December 18 03:03 PM
  • elliootsmeuth Check out Mansions new EP. Alt rock/emo/indie goodness with some other sonically interesting stuff going on that I think you'd really dig.
    December 18 02:56 PM
  • henryChinaski Hey thanks for answering! Haven't changed passwords in ages. Don't really know who to contact on this matter.
    December 13 02:25 PM
  • neekafat Yo, really really liking that Manchester Orchestra album, looking like a really high 4 or low 4.5 Just thought you should know because I wouldn't have checked it without your say-so haha
    December 11 10:47 PM
  • Evok Hey bud got a silly question but do regular user lists get featured? My year end list is a behemoth of hyperbolic vomit and Id be stoked if it got a lil feature. Im guessing the meds thread is the place to ask tho???
    December 10 05:52 PM
  • kingdedethefifth I've noticed they take awhile, my last list took me close to to 2 hours honestly. Ill try to keep peopled with whatever might go unnoticed however!
    December 9 11:08 PM
  • Toondude10 it's been going pretty good so far. just finished midterms and I'm still compiling my AOTY list
    December 9 11:29 AM
  • theBoneyKing Thank you for being willing to engage in a serious discussion about this as I'm sure it is a sensitive matter for you especially. Certainly it's easier for me to say this since I personally don't think the album is worthy of praise on its own merits anyways. :-) Know that I don't take any of this against you personally either.
    December 9 11:28 AM
  • Toondude10 oh congrats! hope for the best for you :-)
    December 9 11:27 AM
  • theBoneyKing Fwiw I may decide to put up a list regarding this matter to get some sort of conversation going about it as I'm not sure whether it has been directly discussed among all of the discussion following the release of the allegations.
    December 9 11:26 AM
  • theBoneyKing At the very least, if it is included, my hope is that the issue will not be simply brushed over in whatever write-up it gets; for better or worse, the issue is now a part of the album's narrative.
    December 9 11:23 AM
  • theBoneyKing Fair enough I guess; I just ask that you all consider it, and remember what comes with your status as professional music reviewers.
    December 9 11:17 AM
  • theBoneyKing Personally I think there is no harm whatsoever in leaving them off the list and it would be better to let yourselves be on the right side of history.
    December 9 11:12 AM
  • theBoneyKing I have to disagree with you there. Separating art from artist is impossible, especially for an artist whose appeal is founded on emotional honesty and up-front-ness Yes you can praise the art without praising the person themselves but ultimately the art is created in the mindset of the artist and is hence a result of the artist and all they represent.
    December 9 11:11 AM
  • theBoneyKing I should note that I do not have a problem with you all individually putting the album on your own personal lists as those represent just that, personal opinions, but I think it would be much worse for you all to collectively praise and give a positive editorial opinion toward the work of such a person.
    December 9 11:07 AM
  • theBoneyKing Big question here, so maybe there's a better place to address it, but I want to know: Do you and the staff intend to leave Science Fiction off of your year end list? I think that, in light of the allegations against Jesse Lacey, it would inappropriate for you all, writing on behalf of a professional music writing site, to give the album the high placement that I have no doubt you would collectively vote to put it in. As far as I can tell, most other major publications have done so.
    December 9 11:05 AM
  • kingdedethefifth What's been going on with the weekly releases segment in the blog?
    December 7 05:00 PM
  • Divaman Hi Sowing. Do you know if the site is going to take everyone's 2017 Top Album lists? I could be mistaken, but I feel like we did them earlier last year. Thanks.
    December 2 10:14 PM
  • henryChinaski Hi there, was wondering if u could help me. I was gonna post something on the help forum, but I am not allowed to. Dunno if am banned or something, but I've only used the forum once since I joined in 2009 so yeah. Thanks in advance!
    November 27 02:39 PM
  • dbizzles Sowing, did you get to Juturna and On Letting Go?
    November 27 11:13 AM
  • Evok we need someone to review Kelela's new album pretty pls!!!
    November 26 12:28 PM
  • MayhemWithMercy Hey dude could you answer a question
    November 25 09:52 PM
  • hogan900 Hey man a band called Young Jesus released a S/T album this year that is extremely good. Thought you may want to check them out since I feel they are right up your ally. River and Storm are probably some of my favorite tracks from the year so i hope you dig :D
    November 24 02:05 PM
  • Futures the user who doxxed sach told me i'm next. should i be worried about this individual and do you know who it is? sput isn't really a secure site so idk.
    November 20 09:15 PM
  • Toondude10 still trying to get you to listen to this band
    November 18 04:46 PM
  • Nbehre11 Hey Sowing! Nathan Hussey and his band All Get Out signed to Equal Vision Records. Hussey (solo project) dropped a new song and album pre orders, and apparently AGO is releasing new stuff in 2018 as well! Thought you?d dig it!
    November 17 03:03 PM
  • neekafat Yo dude, finally got around to checking Crack-Up if you're interested to see my thoughts (:
    November 16 05:28 PM
  • BlackwaterPork By any chance could I have a gif as an avatar?
    November 16 02:52 PM
  • Toondude10 you put Taylor Swift over Converge? Dafuq is wrong with you?
    November 15 03:56 PM
  • Demon of the Fall That?s exactly how I tried before... I?ll do so again
    November 15 10:29 AM
  • Demon of the Fall I have no idea what my password is, I appear to be permanently logged in on my phone but not on other devices. Then I tried requesting a reset via email.
    November 15 08:58 AM
  • Demon of the Fall Please can I reset my password? I requested a reset via my profile
    November 15 04:59 AM
  • MayhemWithMercy I mean I have no reason to lie, it was in the meds thread, you can prob find it a few pages back and see my number of posts.
    November 14 09:41 PM
  • MayhemWithMercy I literally posted 1 thing on the forums, ever, I'm pretty sure it was literally 'lmao' when pjorn and a sach alt we're arguing or something
    November 14 09:31 PM
  • MayhemWithMercy Sowing was it you who banned me from the forums? Not mad, just wanna know.
    November 14 09:27 PM
  • elliootsmeuth Sure thing man. Right place, right time.

    November 14 05:13 PM
  • butcherboy dumb things and emotional moments go hand in hand.. and there was hardly need for some people to act so idiotically over-righteous, the way only young kids with no inner experience can..
    November 14 04:15 PM
  • kingdedethefifth Hey man, I know I haven't interacted with you before but i'm sorry people are jumping so far down your throats over one bad thing you said. Seems like it's tearing you apart pretty hard.
    November 13 10:00 PM
  • Nbehre11 Hope you?re doing well Sowing. It?s definitely an emotional situation for a lot of people, me included. Having such a deep emotional connection to a band makes it a hard situation to tackle and to think about. It?s a lot to process. I, and many others on here are still here for you. Take care man.
    November 13 09:57 PM
  • butcherboy kids will have their callow sanctimony.. you doing alright?
    November 12 03:53 PM
  • Azertherion No problem, regardless of your musical tastes or affinities, it's utterly disrespectful to call you out on something that you willfully do on your spare time. I find it shocking, but it's probably due to the relatively young userbase, which I'm not used to.
    November 12 03:52 PM
  • Lord(e)Po)))ts dividing and alienating people rather than bringing them together and helping them be better these days.
    November 12 03:27 PM
  • Lord(e)Po)))ts np dude. it just really bothers me when people jump to categorize people in such extremes "ur either a hyper feminist or a misogynistic piece of s*** and there is no in between." were all human and its not our fault that society has filled us with some questionable views, its just our responsibility to educate ourselves and learn from those mistakes. if u condemned everyone who slipped up once in their life women would have literally no allies left... seems like people are more hell-bent on
    November 12 03:26 PM
  • Feather You doin alright big guy? Don't leave us.
    November 12 03:23 PM
  • DoofusWainwright You probably work harder than anyone else on the site, don?t leave, this will all blow over in 48 hours
    November 12 01:29 PM
  • Prettyplease Jesse Lacey is human too. In my book: he's not a rapist. He did something that is pretty ****ed, buyt from his story I gather that he's already taken many steps to redeem himself. The last step is to confront his victim. Many of us are capable of gruesome things, but to regret and repent is what divides us from the nihilistic. Take care man, I feel for you. I know what it's like to get the moral police on you, I've already grown a thick skin though.
    November 12 12:09 PM
  • Azertherion This drama is ridiculous. I don't know why people are trying to make a scapegoat out of you for literally nothing.
    November 12 12:07 PM
  • Prettyplease hey man, I've got banned a while ago for petty reasons. But I just wanted to offer you a word of support. Realize this: this website is only a mirror of a fraction of society. Most of society still has a healthy gut feeling and doesn't feel the need to crucify others who have only slipped a little bit. You didn't crash, you just slipped, a Freudian slip almost. And it's human, humans aren't perfect. But you are a more perfect human than others, you understand?
    November 12 12:06 PM
  • AdolfChrist Dont step down, these kids are retarded. Let them have their tantrums, itll blow over.
    November 12 11:51 AM
  • DoofusWainwright I hope people are just having a laugh and aren?t genuinely harassing you, what you?re saying sounds totally reasonable
    November 12 10:12 AM
  • SweeneyTodd yo, i know how much Brand New mean to you, they mean a lot to me too, hopefully these allegations come out as false, I'm struggling to believe them myself. when i heard i felt sick, Jesse has been one of my heros for a long time, and this is like a swift kick in the nuts.

    October 30 01:04 AM
  • DoofusWainwright How do you get to that thread? Sorry, I don?t visit the community pages much
    October 27 06:47 PM
  • DoofusWainwright Lol, I?ll try and dig it out. Need all the 0.5 reviews I can get :D
    October 27 06:40 PM
  • Dylan620 Let me know what you think if you get around to it, really hope you enjoy!
    October 27 03:52 PM
  • Dylan620 Hey Sowing, have you ever spun The Delgados' album, Hate? It seems like something you'd really dig. Sweeping, cinematic, and breathtakingly beautiful indie pop from Scotland. Alternately euphoric and depressing.
    October 27 03:30 PM
  • ktjammin That was the only BN album that didn't get a 5!
    October 27 12:06 PM
  • Atari I should be able to finish up my portion of the Anberlin discussion this weekend. Thanks for your patience and all you do for the site! You're a God
    October 27 11:52 AM
  • Dewinged Sweet, thanks man. Love those posts hence the urge. Cheers!
    October 26 08:12 PM
  • ktjammin No 5 for Your Favorite Weapon :(?
    October 26 08:06 PM
  • Dewinged Sow where's the weekly releases post for the 27th. I have the cold sweat and my vision is getting blurry. Welp!
    October 26 01:52 AM
  • MayhemWithMercy That's actually cool. Love when an artist communicates that intimately with their fans.
    October 23 04:20 PM
  • MayhemWithMercy Thx for the rec dude. Like their sound :)
    October 23 04:14 PM
  • brainmelter awe thanks :D I appreciate the kind words sowbro. its cool that you stuck around. and im glad you dug the song. its pretty underrated imo. sput needs to know !!1!
    October 19 08:42 PM
  • Drifter What'd you think of my rec for your comp?
    October 19 12:30 PM
  • theacademy nyaw thx bud
    October 18 11:14 PM
  • DoofusWainwright Ah yeah, I saw that, which is a good thing. It?s a low key release but nice to see it up there if only for a day ;D
    October 18 09:08 AM
  • DoofusWainwright Thanks for featuring the Cavanagh if that was your doing :D
    October 18 08:33 AM
  • Sniff Always happy to provide appreciated recs. Don't hesitate to hit me with some recs as well. Im always looking for new albums to jam. And what a nice prize that was btw.
    October 18 07:07 AM
  • verdant thanks sowing, means a lot. glad you dug the song even a lil bit and i'm happy to be here. : ) you're great.
    October 17 07:42 PM
  • GreyShadow I'm so glad you liked it!!! The album as a whole is really something special so I hope you give it a full listen at some point! Your kind words really made my day and if I ever need anything, I'll be sure to ask. Thanks Sowing!
    October 17 06:58 PM
  • Prancer Don't worry about the compliment lol. I don't really communicate with users here on a personal level, but I appreciate the kind thoughts and glad you enjoyed the song. Can never go wrong with M83 :)
    October 17 05:56 PM
  • ComeToDaddy Cheers Sowing, stoked you dug it! My degree finishes up in 2 weeks and I'm hoping to start writing more again once it's done so ~stay tuned~, at the very least I'll be poking my head around these parts more often
    October 17 04:21 PM
  • hesperus I'm glad you liked the track, and thank you for the kind words! I keep telling myself that I'm going to try to increase my review output; maybe one of these days I'll actually follow through.
    October 17 04:03 PM
  • Toondude10 I'm pretty sure I told you about this band before but you weren't able to check them out so I figure I'd jog your memory. I think you'll like them.
    October 17 03:49 PM
  • Conmaniac aww sowing you legit just made my day man (: so glad you liked the rec
    October 17 03:45 PM
  • Atari I think I already mentioned it before on one of your lists but I think you'd really dig the new album by Phoebe Bridgers. Hazy singer-songwriter indie-folk that seems up your alley.. I even included Carrie and Lowell in the recommended by reviewer section :]
    October 17 01:49 PM
  • neekafat I see it now, I actually had fixed that but the edit must not have gone through. It should be better now, thank you so much!
    October 16 05:07 PM
  • neekafat Oh shoot really?? I had two people look over it to be sure haha that's embarrassing.
    October 16 05:06 PM
  • neekafat Hey man, is there anyway I could get my Billy Corgan review featured? It's my first week-of release review and I'm pretty happy with it!

  • DoofusWainwright Any chance of my Daniel Cavanagh review getting featured? Album deserves more exposure, it's better than the latest Anathema album.
    October 15 04:07 AM
  • GhostOfSarcasticBtrd I'd say it's the third best track overall. Solemn and Half the World are just too strong.
    October 13 08:14 PM
  • GhostOfSarcasticBtrd Indigo is definitely the early highlight for me.
    October 13 08:13 PM
  • Toondude10 Have you ever checked out Arcane Roots at all? I think you'd really like them, their new album is fantastic.
    October 11 09:36 PM
  • Dewinged Sow, are you gonna review the latest Citizen album? Somehow I feel is totally Sowing material, really diggin it.
    October 10 01:26 AM
  • neekafat Thanks Sowing that really means a lot coming from you :) It?s definitely the one I?m most proud of yet
    October 9 12:58 PM
  • neekafat Hey Sowing, just wanted to say that you've probably been the biggest influence on my writing (next to Blush) and every time I try to blend the personal with the objective in my work I think of your stuff! I wondered if you would take a look at my most recent review and let me know what you think?
    October 8 10:13 PM
  • Aberf Mod, feature my list pls. I worked so hard on it ;_;
    October 8 01:06 PM
  • GhostOfSarcasticBtrd Alright, Helplessness Blues is very good.
    October 8 11:33 AM
  • Toondude10 I'm actually the opposite, I think it's their best, but I understand why some would think otherwise.
    October 4 05:52 PM
  • Toondude10 You check out new The World is a Beautiful Place yet?
    October 1 06:52 AM
  • Trebor. Probably not, I'm so burned out
    October 1 01:00 AM
  • Rowan5215 hahah
    September 27 07:36 PM
  • Rowan5215 that was treb's not mine
    September 27 06:48 PM
  • Evok Hey Sowing. Gotta say, I appreciate your work around here especially since I've been branching out of from my cozy metal world. Anyway, new Archspire dropped a couple days ago and is making big waves across the interwebs so here's a review of it!
    September 23 05:47 PM
  • nocuffin ehh i'll live. reason i'm worried about the writer's block atm is because writing's always been the one thing i've enjoyed doing and currently it's just not happening for me for some reason.
    September 22 09:45 AM
  • nocuffin thanks. :') been in a bit of a tussle with life recently (especially so now that i've learnt liver cirrhosis is irreversible). you got any tips on how to break really bad bouts of writer's block?
    September 22 07:34 AM
  • nocuffin may i ask for a hug? i'm in need
    September 22 07:11 AM
  • LoLifant Just saw that you rated Deaf Havana's recent album with 2.7 and it hurt my tiny little heart. Give their sophomore a spin.
    September 20 07:19 PM
  • DoofusWainwright Ha, it'll be going for weeks and weeks. Give it a go as and when, only if you fancy it of course.
    September 20 06:01 PM
  • DoofusWainwright Think you might have a rec for my latest list?
    September 20 04:19 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot were you still toying with covering the new GY!BE? tbh there's little chance of me having something ready that would stand up to the current default, quality-wise, and I'd rather not half-ass it. it's yours if you want it. otherwise I'm sure jack's would suffice.
    September 18 12:47 PM
  • Toondude10 eh, true.
    September 14 03:18 PM
  • Toondude10 My only real problem is why is Bosses Hang and Anthem for No State separated into three parts? I thought that was unnecessary.
    September 14 03:16 PM
  • Toondude10 I figured as much, still love it though. That being said they need to go back to making 90 minute albums again :-|
    September 14 03:04 PM
  • Toondude10 I was just about to say the new GY!BE album was streaming but it seems that you already new that.
    September 14 02:56 PM
  • Mordecai. plz get a staffer or contributor to review this band. thx in hell
    September 14 08:38 AM
  • neekafat That QotSA rating : (
    September 6 07:17 PM
  • macman76 No probs. I love reading retrospectives, year end features, etc. I've always wanted to contribute to one even if I don't necessarily have an expertise in the subject matter.
    September 6 06:55 PM
  • nocuffin thanks fam. tryin my best. working on using different outlets for my negativity (e.g. getting back into boxing, getting into art, etc.) so I can spare everyone my worst. thx for putting up with me and actually having the impetus to reach out to me when I was being an antagonistic prick. I appreciate that endlessly. keep it real. : )
    September 6 05:54 PM
  • MarsKid Still neglecting Lovedrug eh : (
    September 6 03:24 PM
  • Thealwaysopenedmind Thanks for the explanation. I was surprised to see you in the comments. Haha.
    September 6 12:55 AM
  • BigHans Bro. Gang of Youths
    September 5 11:07 PM
  • Toondude10 yeah I always check that site for big stuff like that. As for the album, I'd say it's just as good as High Violet imo.
    September 5 06:12 PM
  • Toondude10
    September 5 01:24 PM
  • Toondude10 you listen to the new National yet?
    September 5 01:09 PM
  • Toondude10 yeah I loved their first album so I can't wait until their next one drops. The singles off of it have been great so far.
    September 4 06:42 PM
  • BlackwaterPork Cheers for the info mate, much appreciated.
    September 4 04:54 PM
  • BlackwaterPork Hi there, I'm just wondering if you could inform me on what it takes to reach contributor status on this site and the steps that have to be taken.
    September 3 06:12 PM
  • DaveyBoy Still a fair way from rating it tbh, but it's up there.
    September 2 12:06 AM
  • cosmopazz
    September 1 06:27 AM
  • DaveyBoy So glad you gave Gang of Youths a listen and liked it.
    August 31 07:23 PM
  • Toondude10 disappointed with Muse over their last few albums? Well I think I found your replacement! They have a new album coming out next week.
    August 31 06:12 PM
  • neekafat Added my actual rough rating to the list for you haha
    August 31 02:27 PM
  • StarlessCore ahhh i see ur soundoffs. lmao gotta be the hype train id be surprised if this eclipsed tdag
    August 30 05:17 PM
  • StarlessCore ive stayed away from threads and informational stuff surrounding new brand new. also just not rlly into them anymore. but as the authority what is your verdict on science fiction compared to rest of discog
    August 30 05:16 PM
  • AsleepInTheBack Cheers Sowing
    August 30 03:07 PM

  • DoofusWainwright That run of 5's, esp considering you will 5 the new National album
    August 27 08:19 AM
  • smaugman can you please make it a ban-able offense to reveal spoilers like lordepots is doing? it's not funny, it's just a super asshole thing to do
    August 26 07:02 PM
  • Drifter I saw your name and I was like "he's a cool guy" so I told you (:
    August 26 09:55 AM
  • AsleepInTheBack No worries, figured it was a busy period
    August 26 04:25 AM
  • Drifter Ur cool (:
    August 25 05:32 PM
  • AsleepInTheBack Friendly reminder: don't forget that bloon feature.
    August 25 03:11 AM
  • Divaman Happy to help.
    August 22 05:18 PM
  • Divaman Also, something I've discovered that you might (or might not) want to relate to people -- if you try to submit a new artist, and you discover the queue is down, don't keep resubmitting them -- that's how we wind up with multiple entries in the search engine. Instead, enter the artist you've submitted in the search engine every day or two. When the queue comes back up, you'll find that a (blank) page has been created for the artist. Then you can add albums, band info, etc.
    August 22 04:32 PM
  • Divaman Question -- if the queue is down and you do submit changes to a band page, don't those go through when the queue is back up?
