 I'm as much as fan of the absurd as the next guy, and there's even a few tracks on this record that are really good, but... like Klaus said, it must be a slow week.

 I was looking through the archives for Perry's AMAZING collabo with Pink... A++. *heave* Yeah right. Four Non-Blondes suck, as bad at S-K. Kelly is a ho from Beverly Hills that flies everywhere and is handed 1,000 dollar bags like I got beat downs. How about covering someone that had to work for their career, and while you're at it, actually produced good work when they did put out that effort. Four Tet B-, Kelly A-. Thanks for that Stylus.

 PS. Americans with British accents are weak. Marginalize them.

 PPS. God, life is so hard in Beverly Hills! Rivers, envy me not! You will be a drug addict extraordinaire! Woe is me! Kelly, celebs go on the starvation diet, try taking up less of your album cover. Little girls, sisters of the morbidly obese and daughters of the self-inflicted durg stupor are not your role model. Pop pills and tape your sex life like Brittany. That's what America wants.

 What makes you think the review is "ironic," Grodinsky? And who cares whether someone "had to work for their career" (whatever that means)? This has got some good tunes. Forget who made it.

 Savor this moment, everybody. Stylus has finally jumped the shark (I've been waiting a while to drop that cliche, and damn it feels good).

 Rockists, the lot of you.

 Actually, grinder, with all the "oh my god how can you like this" sort of cliches resorted to by many of the readers here, this comment thread is painfully close to jumping the shark as well. I would be interested to hear how many of these commenters have actually heard the album (no, the single or a few cursory listens do not qualify).

 Who made the record DOES matter, and in this case, it's a deal breaker. Reality TV on record is stupid, and having that glimpse into Kelly's bitching, moaning, underserving-ungrateful lap of luxury life, I know that, essentially, she is every inch the useless lard that should do less "celebrity crying" and more crunches. Just think to the Rubber Room review of M.I.A., and then tell me "forget who made it." Pfft... enjoy Kelly, I'm going to give the new Xiu Xiu another spin.

 "Rockists, the lot of you." Nah, just quality-ists. I dunno, making _Sleeping_ album of the week just smacks of a desperate ploy for "controversy." Mission accomplished, I guess.

 who actually listened to the album? not the reviewer, i think.

 ATTN: Caveat: I didn't listen to the album. I don't intend to. That said, I just don't see how this release could possibly, in any realm of possibility, earn an A-. I'll always have a soft adolescent spot in my heart for Ozzie, but this seems ridiculous.

 its ironic because the majority of stylusmagazine readers would not expect it to be the album of the week. this is easily shown by the number of flippant comments, laughs and dismissals. not sure why you need me to explain that. one person got it right saying the majority havent even heard the album. i for fuckssake sure havent and hope to never, i havent even read the review honestly. my observation still stands because i DONT GIVE a FUCK WHAT U THINK!!!!!!!!!! word lfie

 "Don't touch Me While I'm Sleeping" is the funniest song I've heard in a long time. I lose it every time when she sings "I had been date raped". hilarious

 Josh Love - the Mark McGrath of Stylus. It'll make a great sample piece for when you apply to People magazine, you phony-baloney. :P

 Heard "One Word" on the radio on a trip into town the other day. It came on after a dance version of Laura Branigan's "Gloria" and a karaoke soundalike version of Yazoo's "Only You" by some nameless / personality-free teen queen. Then this song plonked along for a bit, and I turned to my mate and said "Someone's covered 'Fade to Grey'? What year is this?" (The chord progression has been directly lifted as well).
