    Congrats to Arcade Fire, such a great album

  • w.m.j.

    I think the awards are mostly a popularity contest, I mean I respect Lady Gaga for her artistic abilities, but not her music, yet she wins the vocal pop award. But I do enjoy the performances.

    Was kanye’s album not legible for this grammys or something?

  • Matt C

    no it’s not. sept to sept albums only

    it’s cool arcade fire won though, perhaps people will actually listen to something thought provoking.

    otherwise the grammies dont matter

    I feel like the Grammys this year were definitely tryyying to put more of a “we recognize, true/ good music” into their selections (ie Arcade Fire, Esperenza Spalding, Black Keys)…

    BUT, the Grammys once again proved that they are still just a stage for the record industries test tube babies to be flaunted about…

    And, best rap album of the year: Eminem??!! That’s fucking disgusting.

  • Dekk

    Didn’t even watch this shit show on the basis that LCD Soundsystem wasn’t even nominated. WHAT? ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME?? WHAAAAT?

  • chimera

    I think with the spectrum of music out there (here?) on the blogosphere and with the blurring of genre lines/borders the Grammys are pretty much unnecessary. Record sales speak for themselves. (The Arcade Fire, while learning the many new ways their name can be misspelled, haven’t exactly gained new fans with the win.) People who listen to Bieber will continue to listen to Bieber, people who listen to Arcade Fire will continue to listen to Arcade Fire…etc etc. To each their own. {apologies for the essay length comment}

    What about the Nas and Damian Marley album? Good music isn’t made for consumption of the masses. Most people wouldn’t or couldn’t appreciate their favorite artist favorite artist.{Forgive me if my punctuation isn’t correct.}
