    Janelle Monae

    Scuttlebutt has it that Dirty Computer leaked but I don't see it anywhere...
  2. I can't believe their last album was 10 years ago. Withdrawal.
  3. I agree about "Holiday." The arrangements for some of the older songs have been lacking, especially compared to what Stuart Price did. That said, at this stage in her career not changing the classics too much is probably a smart move. I do think it's time for a change in musical director though.
  4. Tickets have always said "8pm" when I've seen her in NYC, but according to her team estimated "start time" is approx. 9:30 - 9:45. I'm pretty sure she's taken the stage before 10pm all fives times I've seen her since 2001, and that's always seemed reasonable to me since I never get there before 9pm.
  5. I don't mind lateness unless it means the show will have to end early. Anyone know what happens if she goes past curfew? A fine? If so, she should have finished the show and paid it. These lifelong fans spent hundreds to see you. At least show some respect and apologize like you mean it. And if the problem was technical, send someone out on stage to explain -- or, even better, do it personally. My guess is that it was just an excuse though.

    WTF...now the demise of CDs?

    I'm getting rid of a lot, but keeping rarities and obviously my M collection.

    WTF...now the demise of CDs?

    Server space won't really matter. Things keep getting bigger and easier to store. The real issue will likely be licensing. I've been gradually shifting from CDs to streaming (I basically skipped digital - I've never purchased a damn thing from iTunes, etc.), but my one concern about getting rid of my physical music is that one day certain songs or albums will no longer be available because a record label or artist couldn't agree on the terms. Stuff comes and goes on Netflix all the time, and I've already seen music I listen to on Spotify suddenly vanish.
  8. Dummy is everything. As is their self-titled album. I hope they put out something new soon. And I prefer Protection and Mezzanine to Blue Lines (although "Unfinished Sympathy" is divine).

    This writer is clearly under 30. I don't think it's a conspiracy so much as just little monsters and Beyonce fans trying to ignore Madonna and her performance. Then again, he did post this on Twitter three years ago:

    I'm so tired of the Beyonce worship, especially among gays. This list is embarrassing: https://www.pride.com/music/2018/2/04/10-super-bowl-halftime-show-performances-better-justin-timberlakes

    They haven't worked together in 16 years though.

    You're probably expecting too much. I expect him to bring out that country guy who's name I can't be bothered to remember, maybe the NSYNC boys for like two minutes like Beyonce did with DC, and if he's smart Janet. But I don't think M makes sense, though it would be fun!

    There's a reference to "Lucky Star" on the album, in the song "Higher Higher."

    Justin Timberlake thread

    He should have called Madonna! But seriously, I don't think it means that. I think it means it's the best song of the three and that he should have definitely committed to the more Americana sound the album has been marketed as. It makes no sense for him to be making the same music he was making 15 years ago. Agree. But most of the album is produced by Pharrell so maybe he knew that.

    Wish I knew. Or rather, I'm glad I don't? I've always hated Patti LuPone, even before her nasty, unnecessary comments about M.

    What an atrocious show. Bruno Mars winning was so predictable. The fact that there were 4 black AOTY nominees (only one woman though) and then they give it to the most boring one speaks volumes. Gaga was insufferable as usual. Patti Lupone shouted the entire song with zero nuance or feeling with the exception of the second half of the bridge and the very end, but she's clearly way past her prime. The gay worship I'm seeing on social media is embarrassing. I don't get it.

    This is more like what I expected. It's the best of the three so far. Surprised to see Timbaland only produced four songs on the album. Way too much Neptunes if you ask me.

    I don't really think CSTF was riding the success of 20/20. Those albums didn't do all that well overall. If anything, THIS album will be riding the success of CSTF. If this era flops it will be because the music isn't poppy and accessible like that song was. It wasn't rush-released. Before "Filthy" was even released they announced that there would be several music videos released leading up to the album release, the second one being on 1/18. There's no way they could have conceived, shot, and released this video in less than two weeks. As for the quality, I don't understand this era at all. Where is the "man of the woods" sound/vibe the trailer focused on? It's a mess, but it was apparently all carefully planned in advance, which makes it even worse.

    I remember people being annoyed and disappointed with "SexyBack" too. I don't think this one will end up being as popular as that one, but I think we're underestimating (overestimating?) JT and what people will like? I liked JC's album too, but Justin's first two albums were definitely more consistent. He had a clear image/sound. JC didn't. And he waited too long.

    That's not really possible since this video had to have been planned and shot long before that. The CGI alone would have have taken weeks, if not months. I agree that it's not very good although the song does grow on you a bit after a few plays. There are supposedly three more videos dropping in the next month and that was planned in advance as well, so hopefully the second single will be much stronger and make the whole thing make sense. Otherwise I agree that it's just totally misleading and a mess. He doesn't even have a beard in the video.

    I've liked a few songs here and there, but the last time Bjork mattered to me was Vespertine and she had already peaked by then.

    Yes but I guarantee you the music/videos/performances will be better.

    I'm curious about this. Wasn't crazy about his last album and hate that damn Trolls song, but I like what I hear/see in the trailer for the album.

    I just saw that commercial on TV. Interesting that M is featured twice, and she's the ONLY artist who started before the late '90s featured in the winner "thank you" montage at the end. Queen.
