oh boy!

That NME review of Stereolab’s Cobra & Phases. The Pitchfork one as well.

Pitchfork has purged so much of this type of stuff but somehow this one is still there

Skim read it as the structure was giving me a headache.
Pitchfork reviewers love being wrong about great acts/albums while doing ‘out of the box’ review styles eh.

I’m listening to Streets in the Sky by The Enemy because I remembered it got near-universally panned on release. Including a 0/10 from DiS.

It’s bad. But it’s not that bad.

So many songs with “woah, oh, oh, oh” on though.

This is the one that sticks in my head

You made me go remind myself if it was as bad as I remembered.

It was worse than I remembered, or longer at least.

Shit, yeah, do not remember it being that long
