RSS icon Comments on Day 2: the Cops, Malkmus, & the Cure


So to summarize: the current incarnations of Malkmus, Smith and their bands de jour suck. Yeah, I can get behind that.

Oh, blogging. Sure, R.E.M. has plenty of sincere and deeply romantic songs, but on the whole they have a kind of cleverness and ambiguity that the Cure just lacks. Their most heartfelt moments still manage to avoid the Cure's kind of perpetual teenager melodramatics. At least, that's what I was going for. Shoot me full of holes.
