I like the newest song, but once again I'm not sure it bodes well that this is supposed to be a lead single. It's a good album track.

I think in these days of Spotty files and other things I don't quite understand, (people paying for ones and zeros?) the concept of singles and album tracks is pretty much antiquated.

How??? I think singles are more important than ever because fewer and fewer people actually purchase or listen to full albums. Of course they're not actually "singles" anymore, but "hit songs," "lead YouTube videos," whatever you want to call it.

Sorry?

When every track is available on Spotify, the market, not the artist chooses the 'single'.

This is not an original idea.

That's not how track releases work, mate, and never has been?? Singles have always been released in the leadup to the album. That's how singles work. They're teasers of a coming album to promote it.

Very baffled where the accusations of misogynism are coming from. I think she's a shit artist who has sold out her principles to become more popular. Her gender has nothing to do with it for me. I threw Trent Reznor under that very same bus a couple years back, though it wasn't documented here because I wasn't using this site at the time. Is it misandrist for me to say I think he's a rubber-faced bone man who's lost absolutely all of spark and has been an unrelenting shitehawk toward his vastly far too forgiving fans? Is it really?

You leave Rez alone!

Not sure how he can be accused of selling out. Peak Rez was undoubtedly mid 90s, and the output post-millenium has changed gears all over the place. Everything after the hiatus has been pretty much the antithesis of selling out - If anything it's been more a case of an artist doing what they want rather than pandering to 'the market' to shift records. And while Hesitation Marks was pretty bad, the EPs since have been decent. And the soundtrack stuff is hardly the act of a 'sell out' either.

Why is Grimes even a thing to discuss? Fuckin total crap. It's like an alternate dimension where Best Coast are on GMTV or something. What the fuck is happening? How is this total fucking crap have the attention of anyone at all? Two good dumps ten years ago or something and then a trail of diarrhoea everyone's splashing in. Just leave it.

Pretty much everything he's said about his fanbase in the last few decades has been pretty heinous. I can't be fucked to find the exact quotes and all, forgive me, but after the remarkably good move of PWYW with Ghosts he's started fucking whinging about fans being entitled and not wanting to pay enough money for his masterpieces. Like, fucking hell mate, there's a limit.

Ok, what's the point of a review that lasts longer than the thing it's reviewing?

Well, the answer is for the advertising money.

And there's nothing wrong If it's for a good review, one that says things that are interesting, insightful or entertaining in their own right.

For a 2 µM surface level, descriptive review, less so.

Hasn't that always been the Grimes sound?
