LINK: Chris Lawrence has a good post decrying the hipper-than-thou-ness of music critics:
"...if there’s one thing I can’t stand, it’s the widespread condescension displayed by the self-annointed music cognoscenti toward popular music."
I will cop to liking the occasional Abba tune ("Waterloo" is pretty darn good), and I learned to fingerpick on my guitar by playing Jewel songs, so keep that in mind in any moments of condescention that are about to follow.
I'm impressed that TMFTML can do Phish references, too.
I discovered the following this weekend, which I pass along to you:
"Ain't It Strange" -Patti Smith Group, Radio Ethiopia
"She Is Suffering" -Manic Street Preachers, The Holy Bible
