    God damn. If I ever decide to just blow it up and start over, these are the 40 albums I'm using to start and end my record collection.

    That Scaruffi piece is hilarious. An inane classic.

    Does Dusted Magazine mostly focus on music made by dudes that blow into instruments? I have enjoyed their writing for years but this is some shit I cannot get into.

    It does seem like they've become even more niche-oriented since they moved over to Tumblr and stopped posting three reviews per day, but they've always reviewed more jazz than other sites.  

    Most of the jazz reviews are written by some guy named Derek Taylor, and on the front page currently he has more entries than anyone else.  The other contributors mostly write about other things.  I would guess that more reissues in that genre get reviewed than in any other, too, which is some shit that I am pretty into, although I certainly do share your disinterest in new releases by trumpeters and saxophonists.

    I still prefer the Dusted take on recent noteworthy music releases to all other sites.

    I'd like to see their site analytics since they've gone even more extreme in their niche.

    I've long since forgotten almost all of the board and blog deep writing I used to devour back in this era when it seemed so fresh and central to the things I thought and felt, but I still read these Freaky Trigger articles and the history and context is always really worthwhile without ever being too arch or clever. This is seriously great music writing (and also writing about music).

    The song itself is very very of-that-era, "dated" without the negative connotation that word has.
