AlyssaMxdwn (3:47:45 PM): definitely — i hope i go next so no one steals from me — jen was dangerously close on one pick!!

thecityofbrass (3:52:22 PM): haha
penguinonesie (3:52:34 PM): I wake up to that album every morning
jenismodasef (3:52:48 PM): i would think you were weird if you didnt
penguinonesie (3:53:15 PM): haha, my neighbor blasts it, but I obviously don’t care
audiovirus2828 (3:53:33 PM): haha. I personally think it is a strong album with strong tracks. It doesn’t feel like they just threw this one together at all.
audiovirus2828 (3:53:48 PM): It is apparent that they have evolved as a band t/o the years, yet with this album they return back to their “funk” roots too.
jenismodasef (3:54:39 PM): and it is the funk we all know and love
penguinonesie (3:54:46 PM): definately. ‘dani california’ has that old skool slap bass sound
audiovirus2828 (3:55:07 PM): exactly
thecityofbrass (3:55:23 PM): very nice
audiovirus2828 (3:56:18 PM): which is why ‘Dani California’ is one of my choices for SOTY
AlyssaMxdwn (3:56:37 PM): haha — what a great segue!
audiovirus2828 (3:56:45 PM): followed by ‘Snow (Hey Oh)’
thecityofbrass (3:56:46 PM): haahahaha
audiovirus2828 (3:56:51 PM): heehehe
jenismodasef (3:56:59 PM): both good songs
audiovirus2828 (3:57:10 PM): yeah, it was hard to pick just two
penguinonesie (3:57:12 PM): yup, good stuff
audiovirus2828 (3:57:16 PM): yeah
jenismodasef (3:57:38 PM): my dad called me up and was like have you heard danni california?!? its straight up hendrix!
audiovirus2828 (3:57:51 PM): ‘Snow (Hey Oh)’ is a pretty song
audiovirus2828 (3:57:57 PM): hahah

thecityofbrass (4:03:58 PM): dang! Jerome Dillon in the house!
AlyssaMxdwn (4:04:00 PM): yes, with the silly caps and random punctuation
AlyssaMxdwn (4:04:35 PM): haha — yup. the drummer of NIN had a random health crisis, dropped out of the NIN tour, and wrote a creepy spooky album
AlyssaMxdwn (4:04:58 PM): what i like =>
AlyssaMxdwn (4:05:29 PM): all the songs work together to create one feeling, one mood
AlyssaMxdwn (4:06:46 PM): not a collection of singles or smattering of genres — but you can tell he had a really specific purpose in creating the album
freshstyles26 (4:06:57 PM): nice
AlyssaMxdwn (4:07:03 PM): SOTY
penguinonesie (4:07:04 PM): sounds interesting
baker2thextrme (4:07:16 PM): Can’t wait to hear it.
AlyssaMxdwn (4:07:24 PM): and i swear i thought of these before hearing anyone else’s noms
audiovirus2828 (4:07:25 PM): definitely
thecityofbrass (4:07:33 PM): hahaha
AlyssaMxdwn (4:08:07 PM): i chose two singles that i felt were important to the artists releasing them —
AlyssaMxdwn (4:08:14 PM): “saving grace” — tom petty
AlyssaMxdwn (4:08:33 PM): an obviously well-established artist — returning again without the heartbreakers
AlyssaMxdwn (4:08:52 PM): i thought the song was a fine example of the album’s quality
AlyssaMxdwn (4:09:20 PM): and “steady as she goes” — the raconteurs
thecityofbrass (4:09:31 PM): sa–weeet!
baker2thextrme (4:09:32 PM): awesome
freshstyles26 (4:09:37 PM): great choices
