    Betrayed isn't really the right word, but when James Blake pivoted away from the the "dubstep" he was making before his first album and started singing on tracks, the emotion I felt was not a welcome one at all.

    I don't think it has anything to do with the past 8 (?) years of our culture kind of congealing around what he was doing in that moment (there's a lot of James Blake-esque music out there atm that I don't care for at all), but I finally think I get it or at least recognize that I was really misunderstanding what he was doing on "The Wilhelm Scream" or "Limit to Your Love." Dismissing this stuff as I did was a foolish judgement.

    I suppose it helps to step back from how quickly I was absorbing and assessing music back then. It feels good to have distance from that and be removed from the hype, although no one would ever admit being caught up in anything like it today. That was something other people were doing, but never me, etc.

    I don't have a point to this other than wishing to acknowledge that I never thought I'd come back to this stuff or have a reason to but now it's feeling deeper and stranger than I ever understood it to be or had the capacity to imagine at the time.

    That's a post that I didn't expect to be reading in 2018. I actually revisited that self-titled album a few months back and was really surprised by how well it has held up. I had a similar reaction to you at the time and I eventually lost interest in him and stopped listening to any of his music after that first album, but it's a really well done and surprisingly soulful album.

    I've had a similar experience with Beach House's Teen Dream. I remember listening to it a quite a bit when that album first came out and I liked it but it never seemed like something that would leave a lasting impression. But I went on a lot of long walks this summer listening to that album and I think it retrospectively stands out as one of the strongest albums released during that period of time.

    Undo, that's how I felt about revisiting Charlie XCX in 2018.

    Distance helps with lots of things. I feel like my true appreciation for music and my own independent "taste" is strong than ever now that I've dropped out of the critical landscape for the most part.

    I’ve been listening to The Chameleons’ Script of The Bridge everyday this month and I can’t get over how good it is.

    Sir Douglas Quintet | Mendocino

    I'd never heard this until a few days ago, but I can't get enough of it. Sorta reminds me of The Dead, The Band, The Flying Burrito Brothers. I feel like Reuben or Zappo could get down with this. Or anybody, really, just thought of them for whatever reason.

    I'm listening to Last Splash right now. I always knew that it was fucking great, but... it's fucking great. I've actually always underrated this album, for the simple reason that I only ever want to listen to "Cannonball," and so neglect the rest of the album. I had the same experience as a 12 year old in 1994 with Weezer and "Say it ain't so," but by 1996 I had moved on to listening to the the rest of the jams at least as much and more.

    On Cannonball: it is such a cool, of a time song, and it reminds me of the sketch in The State where the guy discovered that wearing pants was a key to professional success.

    On the rest of the album: I honest to god don't think that my attention span ever got all the way to "Drivin' on 9" until today. What an idiot I've been for most of my life. Obvs.

    Yeah, real classic right there. Think MTV used to use "Divine Hammer" as bumper music. Never once saw them play it otherwise. Idiots.

    That’s one of my favorite albums of all time. Saints is another song that I’ll love for all time. ‘Drivin on 9, lookin for the 30, maybe I passed it, go another mile.’ Prob top 10 road trip lyrics right there, makes me laugh or at least smile every time. Invisible man is the best shoegaze song not by a shoegaze band. I said all of this about 12 years ago on SOMB when I had tried to listen to Sir Mix A Lot and found The Breeders in the tape case. One of the best musical surprises of my life. ‘Does love ever end? When two hearts are torn away, or does it go on? And beat strong anyway. You loved me before, do you love me now?’ No need to unpack that brilliance, simple and effective. This ones going in the coffin with me.

    Dero was bitching about them playing that record in its entirety a few years ago at Pitchfork. Fuck Dero.

    I bought Last Splash and the first Collective Soul CD at Target on the same day when I was in 8th grade.

    Just learned of this album today and have been playing the following track repeatedly since hearing it. Smokey sax and and keys, a nice hazy warped little loop and standup bass. Super good stuff.

    Holy shit, this is what The 1975 sound like? Kind of like a shittier, less anthemic version of 'These Words' by Natasha Bedingfield? That's not really what this sounds like at all but I love that it was my first reaction. Lame band
