I’m fairly opinionated about my music in general but I’m just under the line where I refuse to accept that I’ve been wrong in my opinions, so here is a list of musical things I was wrong about. Feel free to gloat if you were always right.
1. Animal Collective aren’t as bad as I first assumed. In fact, ‘My Girls’ is really rather excellent (apart from the bit before the drums kick in, that’s still quite stale). Which is annoying.
2. Esser’s album wasn’t all that great. Don’t get me wrong, I still love the first few songs I heard, but since my somewhat exuberant response to the album’s release, I have to say I’ve retracted my love for it somewhat. It’s just… fine.
3. Noah and the Whale’s new, more full sound could, at times, not be painfully dull.
