    It’s not quite as good as Beyonce’s Lemonade, but it’s OK.

    Lemonade is on my list of CDs to buy. I’m really looking forward to hearing it.

    Beyonce and Taylor Swift are my ultimate fantasy. Imagine those two together? It would seem like everything was alright in the world if they teamed up.

    They would be the ultimate chocolate and vanilla experience.

    Fantasies? Two chicks together? Sounds really like PORNO to me! Just my opinion. BTW: I see you’re back.

    1989 is THE greatest album of our time.

    See, ask the kids about it, they know. Nikkei, you’re one of those 20-something kids, right?

    Well, I feel better now. Thanks for this post.

    Oh wait… I just noticed somebody tagged this thread as, “crap.” Not nice!

    To be honest, there’s not much competition in great albums in this decade so far. Let’s wait for what the Stones come up with.

    Yeah, I’m out of touch with a lot of the new music that’s out there. Some people say there’s all this great new music around these days. Well, where is it?

    Here’s something good that I just figured out: I can delete the Tags on the threads I start — nice feature.

    I was really upset when Prince died. For some reason I was more upset than when other musicians have died recently. But I never fully connected with all of Prince’s music. I thought he was an extremely gifted guitar player. From what I’ve been seeing in interviews, from his friends who knew him, he was a super nice person, very charitable and he genuinely cared about other people. I wish he had played in a band. I bet I would’ve been into that. I wish he would have lived a lot longer. I feel like I never fully connected with all of David Bowie’s music. But for some reason Prince’s death was more painful for me than Bowie’s. Anyway, have a good one everybody.

    I have nothing against Ms. Swift and her ditties. I do not find them quite as catchy as Abba’s, but whose are, really?

    As to this being the best record of our time, I would submit in the spirit of “where is the great new music, anyway?” that any of these long-players run rings around 1989:

    The Weekend—House of Balloons

    Tim Hecker—Ravedeath, 1972

    Titus Andronicus—The Monitor

    Fiona Apple—Extraordinary Machine

    Kendrick Lamar—To Pimp a Butterfly

    Kamasi Washington—The Epic

    Flying Lotus—Cosmogramma

    Fever Ray—Fever Ray

    Oneohtrix Point Never—Replica

    Fuck Buttons—Tarot Sport

    LCD Soundsystem—Sound of Silver

    Earth—The Bees Made Honey in the Lion’s Skull

    Sunn O)))—Monoliths and Dimensions

    Boris—Pink

    Jason Isbell—Live from Alabama

    Barn Owl—Lost in the Glare

    Colin Stetson—New History Warfare V2: Judges

    John Doe—A Year in the Wilderness

    Nico Muhly—Mothertongue

    Robert Plant—Band of Joy

    David Bowie—The Next Day
