toosh report: a pitchfork edition!
the new moz:
1st line: "'I am a living sign," Morrissey sings on "Vicar in a Tutu", from the Smiths' 1986 apex, The Queen Is Dead."
last line: "The living sign again: "This one is different, because it's us."
hogan loved the new record. he goes onto explain why. i don't really buy it, but whatever. i can't really argue with details, but the truth is that the new record is thoroughly forgettable. trust me i've tried. hogan gave the record an 8.0. i gave the record, what, a 6.1? i can't remember. hogan's review gets the same why not.
sebadoh III reissue
first line: "Released the same month as Nirvana's Nevermind, Sebadoh's III-- along with Pavement's 1992 album Slanted & Enchanted-- functioned as my preferred scattershot post-adolescent soundtrack."
last line: "I haven't heard anything like it since."
ok so i'm biased. this record was fucking rad. also, when it came out i was right there with stosuy buying up those 7"s and laughing at the indie rock 'fight' tracks. he gave the record a 9.3. i give it an 8.3 [maybe i'm less nostalgic- is that possible?]. the review gets an 8.5.
Fennessey's review of the new T.O. is funny, but i get weirded out by music writers who all of the sudden become black when they review black music. Fennessey sayd "don't get it twisted". it gives me the heebie jeebies. and when trent talks about three 6 on his blog he says 'dawg' every time. ugh.
