Published May 30, 2012Another week of Exclaim! music coverage means another edition of the Reader Feedback Roundup. This week our readers sometimes liked and, of course, sometimes complained about a number of different stories. Here's a sampling of what went down.
First up, there were a lot of grumblings coming from our Facebook and Twitter followers in response to the casting of Twilight heartthrob Robert Pattinson in a biopic about the Band. "A sad attempt to market The Band to a bunch of little girls," said Kristin Rutherford. Over on Twitter, meanwhile, @AdamJBowie said, "Well, this will make a lot of people groan." Highlighting the absurdity, @MoultonDrums also tweeted, "As long as Sacha Baron Cohen plays Richard I'm good."
Next up, we asked readers via Twitter what they expect from Bob Dylan's upcoming album. We got lots of favourites and retweets, although a few people seemed a bit sardonic. "Five stars from Rolling Stone, for one thing," said @gomarkhomer. Toronto band Greys joked, "He's a poor man's Jakob Dylan."
In the Click Hear section, Exclaim! readers apparently really enjoyed Jennifer Castle's new video for "Neverride." People sounded off in favour of Castle's vocals. "Her voice is number one," said commenter Jc, while others not only enjoyed the song, but also the imagery in the clip shot by Davida Nemeroff. Marcia said, "Beautiful job Jen and Dave….wonderful video!!"
Finally, a lot of readers were excited about our album stream of White Lung's new LP Sorry. "THIS RECORD FUCKING SLAYS," said Hether Fortune, followed by a slew of other comments reiterating her statement. "DITTO DITTO HOLY MOTHER OF GOD THIS RECORD FUCKING SLAYS," said Sam Happyone. And with so many folks on the same page, one reader pointed out that "COMMENTS ARE SLAYYYYING RIGHT NOW." So, the general consensus seems to be that White Lung's new album definitely does slay.
