Big Bad Scrapple Since: 4.1.02 From: Dorchester, Ontario Since last post: 18 hours Last activity: 8 hours # 1 Posted on 21.9.02 1339.42 This is odd...Rolling Stone gives out exactly NO five-star ratings to an album since 1992 (R.E.M's Automatic for the People), but in the last two years, the distinction has gone to Love & Theft (Bob Dylan), Goddess in the Doorway (Mick Jagger), The Rising (Bruce Springsteen) and now Sea Change (Beck). Perhaps since they're gradually turning into Maxim anyway, RS doesn't feel so stingy about the rave reviews. Edited to add that I've got 450 posts! Huzzah! (edited by Big Bad on 21.9.02 1440) I was born in a manger, like that other guy. You know, he wore a hat? Promote this thread!

AIM: # 4 Posted on 21.9.02 1735.25 Bah. A 10.0 from Pitchfork means much more to me than ***** from RS. God Loves Da Bears, Hates Jay Feely: Chicago 14, Atlanta 13 Bears go to 2-0 (next vs. New Orleans)

Jubuki Kolbasz Since: 16.7.02 Since last post: 4426 days Last activity: 4410 days # 7 Posted on 23.9.02 1732.11 Does it matter? The Grammys are an even bigger sham than anything RS does - what the Hell is the difference between a 'record' and an 'album', anyway? Anyone recall the Jethro Tull incident? The nebulous time constraints for releases that qualify for awards? Now *there* is a bunch that needs to stop handing out awards, pronto. Chris The AIR RAID CRASH

The Grammys are an even bigger sham than anything RS does - what the Hell is the difference between a 'record' and an 'album', anyway? As I understand it: Album = whole album, goes to the band. Record = song, goes to the band. Song = song, goes to the songwriter. I may be overgeneralizing here, but I think that's it.

I still can't figure out how Achtung Baby by U2 didn't get five stars. I was born in a manger, like that other guy. You know, he wore a hat?
