    I'm Always in Love
  1. I read an interview with White where he says he feels like he could be Bob Dylan's son. He respects Dylan greatly and I think he borrowed or was inspired by how Dylan kept himself somewhat a mystery...maybe partly accident, but I think Dylan did a lot of it purposely. But White seems to have taken to a different level, with the way he set boundaries and rules for the Stripes like only having 3 colors and 3 instruments, the way the Raconteurs presented themselves, the blue tones he's chosen for his solo album and tour, and how he always seems in character when in the midst of touring. I think i
  2. I think the new record is pretty bad ass. Anybody else heard it yet?
  3. "Meh" is way harsh to me. Different strokes.
  4. Anybody hear the resemlence? It was the first thing I thought of when I first heard the song "Blunderbuss".
  5. There's nothing to come at you about. It's your opinion. What does "rock-godesque" mean. That's a bad thing, right?To me, "Blunderbuss" is anything but predicatble. Of course, you'd have to listen to it first to decide if what I'm saying is true.
  6. I've been listening to Jack White's new album Blunderbuss on iTunes (my first impression is VERY good by the way), and noticed a resemblance between the title track and the Mermaid Avenue tune "One By One". Musically, it's got a similar sounding waltzing cadence. Jack White's vocal makes it a very different song, and I'm not claiming it's a rip-off, just curious what other Wilco fans think of the similarity. Interesting also is that the final song on Blunderbuss is called "On and On and On", though it sounds nothing like Wilco's Sky Blue Sky track, but is perhaps equally good.

  8. Name something Rush has said that's more offensive than Louis CK's comments about Pallin.
  9. Rush is a very hard-working, successful radio ENTERTAINER. He just happens to have Conservative opinions, and tries to illustrate them in humorous, sometimes controversial ways. He's no different than Howard Stern or Don Imus or Jim Rome. Nothing he's said EVER is as offensive as many of the Left-leaning comics and entertainers who spout off regularly.
  10. Rush said, "What does it say about the college co-ed Sandra Fluke, who goes before a congressional committee and essentially says that she must be paid to have sex, what does that make her? It makes her a slut, right? It makes her a prostitute…She wants to be paid to have sex. She’s having so much sex she can’t afford the contraception. She wants you and me and the taxpayers to pay her to have sex. What does that make us? We’re the pimps.” Using the word "slut" is a bit harsh of course, but his point is DEAD-ON. Fluke goes to a Jesuit school and expects the school to have her birth control p
  11. For Jeff's (and the band's?) health and sanity, it was a good thing for Jay to not be in Wilco and seemed like it had to happen. I personally think Jeff is way more of a "my way or the highway" type of creative person than he comes across, but at the same time, it seems as if Jay leaving had much more to do with Jay than Jeff.But as a fan, who can only listen to records and very occasionally see a band live, all I really care about is what I can hear. Being There, Summerteeth, YHF, and the Mermaid discs, to me, are the pinnacle of Wilco's output. And I know Jay contributed a lot to what I hear
  12. Excited to hear more Son Volt. Been listening to Straightaways and it sounds so great. I fear Jay won't ever be able to match the greatness of the early Volt records, but I know there will be great moments. Only kinda excited about the Guthrie album. Wilco and Bragg set the bar pretty high...not that the albums should be compared, but will be impossible not to. I liked the mix of personal/human songs (Wilco) and political songs (Bragg) chosen on the Mermaid discs. Curious what the lyrical vibe will be on this one.
  13. I think Pat's very talented, and his credited bridges on 3 "Whole Love" songs (especially Dawned On Me)...which really help make those songs more than just a "good" pop song...are the types of things that Jay Bennett was so brilliant at. But I think Jay was a very special musical talent and wouldn't put Pat in Jay's league.
  14. Just A Kid and Always In Love must have been great to see. And Side With the Seeds...nice!
