I'm not huge on King Krule to this point, but I am intrigued by him. I do think "Dum Surfer" and "Half Man Half Shark" are absolute top notch songs.

This new one starts off promising enough, the first 4 songs are actually fairly enjoyable. Then comes "The Dream" interlude and most everything just gets real darn murky from there on out (9-11 are especially oppressive). I like the overall down (down down) tempos just fine, but the vibe can be stifling after a while. ... read more

early early Twin Peaks on VHS pop.

Shame on you if you're sleeping on this.

Back in my post rock heyday I would have really been all over this. Its decent, nice crescendos, nice atmospheric cleanser in the middle... the vocals remind me of Chino Moreno in a way (Candy is actually a Deftones'ish track imo). Solid enough, but I doubt I'll come back to this very much.

Solid S&G album. Nice hushed sound, some humor as well. I guess this was culled down from 50 tunes... good stuff.

I have a folder already filling up with 2020 releases, but I'll stick with this one for a minute first.

Released along with the 2011 box set, this is a collection of odds and ends. 5 of these songs never saw official release before, but bootleg live versions have been widely available online for years. Oh Sister is said to be a companion song to Oh Comely. The title track would often be played live with a full band (one of the more hectic songs they would play).

April 8 & A Baby For Pree also appear on "On Avery Island"
I Will Bury You In Time is also on "Live At Jittery ... read more

I think I've got it added in the right spot now. On users' ratings pages? Let me know if it's missing somewhere else too.

Left couple years back because my dad got a job down in the panhandle. It's my final year in high school though, so I might move back up after I graduate and go to CU Boulder.

I'm originally from Fort Collins! So cool to see someone that lives there!

The distinction between the mid-western milwaukee vs. PNW milwaukie is found in two ways. One... the first vowel following the k. Two... Milwaukie [Portalnd, OR] = craft beer vs. Milwaukee, WI [Milorganite fertilizer]

Hey, sorry if it looked like a bot randomly adding albums. The Hespèrion XXI is a powerful international ensemble, who has collaborated with Catalan maestro Jordi Savall to restore and recreate ancient music from all around the world. They have created some of the most spiritually and astonishingly immersive music (and incredibly packaged) I have ever heard. Among the classical and ancient music scene, they are highly regarded as one of the finest ensembles. I just noticed they were not here, and since they are one of my favorite musicians, I tried to add at least some of their recordings (which together with Savall's are around +120). Thank you, I will try to add some of the Allmusic's reviews.

Yep I really enjoyed it too. The dynamic between the two was so watchable and entertaining. Amazing acting and cinematography and just overall a really creative movie. The final 15 minutes I thought were SO good and I cannot stop thinking about that whole final sequence.
About
Always listening and tinkering with scores. Basically a curated list of music. I only score albums, no singles (with rare exceptions). I made the decision when I started on this site to only score music that I can, at least, appreciate. Thus you wont see very many low scores from me, and you won't see me bothering with hate listening to things. This is me trying to put my favorite music "in order".

Some days I'm an 89, some a 67.
Everything I rate is in my itunes,
I don't stream.
