Nice. The guy has a hell of a resume. Look forward to reading your explorations.

WTF???

If that’s all you’re going to say about Big Black gtfo

A halfass review of Atomizer stating you don’t like it.

It’s inexcusable not to like Atomizer. If you don’t like Big Black you’re not intellectually equipped to write about Steve Albini. It’s the core fundamental expression of his aggression. It’s his attack mode put on display. Big Black is the genesis of his entire philosophical approach to his music.

That doesn’t make any ****ing sense. Seriously.

He's a ****ing pantywaist indie rock white guy whose glasses don't even have lenses. What do you expect? I'm sure if Steve Albini was in Wilco he'd give them a 10/10.

I really don't like drum machines and the "branching on the edge of industrial" music isn't my thing. Shellac is a different band. I started with Shellac with Albini.

Allmy reviews are half assed by the way. Where have you been?

Why do you think I like indie rock? What indie rock do I like? I've literally never listened to a Wilco record in my life. You're so much better than this. Rag on me for legit reasons like OH above. You have this idea that I am some Pitchfork indie douchebag and I couldn't be more put off by that kind of music. Be better.

^Don't you like Sun Kil Moon? Close enough.

Big Black is aight but they're overrated as ****. That's par for the course on any release that Albini actually plays on, though.

God tier producer, I hope Exo goes into Albini's production techniques.

You can't fool me with your post-indie jazz dad posturing.

I like that one record, yeah. It's good. The rest not so much.

That's a great joke. I mean, we look like we're in Mumford and Sons but that doesn't mean I listen to them. Sh*t, I had a grey shirt and blue pants on. I think you got the wrong idea about me homie.
