I don't get the reasoning.

Satan has spawned many a good child.

Shouldn't that put the fire in one's belly? Is the band resisting his efforts to take a stand on these issues? Is dad being an e ...

nice catch with the verse Martin, total Dylan!

I was thinking early early.

Like, the chorus from GOYB sort of aligning with the chorus of "Sometime Soon She Said"

I don't have a problem with any of this stuff anymore.

record sales are down, the major labels are all floundering and wasting their resources suing fans. Indie labels? well, vinyl sales are up a ...

Anyone notice a similarity to a certain Boos tune?

Though, to be fair, they both could have bit it from Love... Nice to see U2 trying to make decent music again at any rate. ...

I think we're in agreement here! I think part of it is about not alienating people, both from the music and the "message". I will insist though that that sort of small "p" politi ...

I hear you.

I think paying for music inherently involves an incentive for you to actually listen to it. Seriously, do you think they put it out for free because it was a bad record? I've struggle ...

PostForum: bravecaptain   Posted: Mon Mar 17, 2008 08:01   Subject: Actually, I think you're way ahead of the curve on this.
Problem being, where's the curve?

The idea of "the Consumer" itself is outdated. Outside of inane pop music (or random gems like OutKast's Hey Ya) I don't think there's a viable business ...

Exactly!
And I think in terms of the times, that was exactly what was needed!

Because a work of art can be political without being "about politics". And it can be more powerful/meaningf ...
