Over the past few weeks, I have spent a good amount of time with two of the records that I listed on my atrocious list. And I would now like to remove them from that list.
I've heard over-and-over about the greatness of the Fleet Foxes song "White Winter Hymnal". And I must admit, I now kind of agree. And the rest of the record is growing with each listen.
With four songs remaining on my eMusic a few weeks ago, I decided to download four tracks from the Vampire Weekend record. As I hit the download button four times (would've only taken one had I had enough credits for the entire record), I felt an instant wave of nausea hit my gut. A few days later I grudgingly listened. "Meh", I thought. A few hours later I was listening again. And again. "Oxford Comma" is one of the best songs of the year.
I have turned into everything I detest. And that can be read many ways.
