I saw Ghost's Brown Tape reviewed on pfork which struck me odd. About midway thru they reference that this is a reissue of a limited cassette tape. No idea what they're talking about as I bought this album on CD in 2013 from a major retailer. Shrug.
The Grammys occasionally nail a moment, but they almost never do so in the main categories. Album, record, song of the year. The irritating thing is that they try to give the appearance of choosing based on merit, but then they end up giving to the most friendly and familiar thing in these categories.
I’m goddamn glad DAMN. didn’t win. That album has no business being “Album of the year.” It’s too goddamn good, and the year was too goddamn shitty.
