    That cover of Patience has been getting a lot of air play around here lately and is on point.  Just a great cover

    Never thought I’d see Chris Cornell doing a Take That song

    Starting to think Bruce is just playing for a payoff now. Second game in a row he's played Carroll with no service then taken him off for a winger.

    You'll be excited with the recent news from the Chinese Super League then?

    In case you haven't seen it:

    Spoiler

    Slaven Bilic is the new manager of Beijing Guoan

  3. Why the hell are there two Beck songs in this book? Devil's Haircut is better than Loser but it's still not very good.

    I don't think I've heard this Method Man and Mary J Blige one before but.I liked it.

    I think Liam is bang on with his assessment of Beautiful People. It's a bit shit but there's still a lot to like about it.

    I've listened to Fiona Apple's first album a couple of times and while it was by no means bad nothing was particularly memorable. So I know for a fact I've heard Criminal before but I just can't remember it. It's fine but this song doesn't really go anywhere.

    I've never knowingly listened to the Dave Matthews Band before I played this song. It kinda sounds like what I'd expect the Dave Matthews Band to sound like. Lame.

     

    Fucking 90s eh. Just wait until the inevitable Neutral Milk Hotel placement and I'll really blow a gasket.

  4. Sporting Kansas City is possibly the lamest name in all football.

    Not to mention that a few of the more generic sounding English language ones are being misuded. The appendage "united" was originally used to denote teams that formed as a result of a merger of two or more teams. Hence "united". It's improper just to stick it after Atlanta, DC or Minnesota just because you feel like it.

    But that's a minor quibble. It doesn't sound outright naff, whereas Sporting Kansas City most definitely does.

    I get why these silly names are being used though. Following soccer is used as a calling card by a lot of Americans to basically say "hey, look at us! We are cultured and Europeanised and outward-looking which is why we like soccer!" and I guess silly team names taken from the British/Spanish/Portuguese/whatever tradition is an extension of that. Can't wait until the next expansion where we get Borussia Tuscaloosa and Spartak Oklahoma City.

  5. I really like a whole load of Animal Collective stuff but I didn't particularly like that Centipede Hz one and lost track of everything that came after. Maybe I should give it a go, because the sort of thing you describe is exactly what I like about them. Centipede Hz was just a racket.

  6. Oh things have picked up now.

    Ready Or Not is a really good tune. I actually don't know that many other Fugees ones (although I like the first Lauryn Hill album) but this one is a top tune.

    I'm not overly keen on the Prodigy. They need to chill out a bit. In any case they deserve to have something in the book, and it might as well be Firestarter. It's pretty good when I'm in the mood for it.

    Nancy Boy is really good. It's also the only Placebo song I know particularly well.

    I had no idea that song was Tori Amos! I know it's a remix and all, but it's not the sort of music I'd associate her with (tbf I don't actually know Tori Amos at all well). Anyway it's a belter.

    Novocaine for the Soul is good too. It's one of two Eels songs I know, along with that one from Shrek. 

     

  7. I don't think rock music of the 90s was bad. You're much more likely to find bad rock music in the 70s and 80s. But you're also much more likely to find great rock music in the 70s and 80s. One of the things I notice about 90s rock music is there is a real lack of good songwriting. For a lot of people it seemed sufficient to have soft-loud-soft dynamics and mutter something in an ironic tone of voice. Which is fine, but it's also easy and usually not very interesting.

    Maybe she and other pundits will think twice before saying stupid unfounded shit in the future or God forbid do some research rather than making soundbites in a bid to sound informed. The club have every right to defend their employees' integrity. 

    But she was right though.

    Also I don't think Carney was attacking the integrity of Leeds. She said nothing about their ethical or moral principles (although recent developments have certainly cast them into a lot of doubt). She was questioning their stamina. Stamina is not integrity.
