Re: 2014 Grammy Awards - Nominees Announced

Some thoughts:

Album of the Year : Blessed Unrest by Sara Bareilles? Really? Look, I'm a fan of the song "Brave" (and appreciate the irony of using it in a commercial to sell Windows phones), but as an album? Terrible choice. If they weren't really going to honor an out-there but deserving nominee like Modern Vampires of the City or Yesus, they could have at least gone with the Timberlake album which was solid and respectable. Awful choice in that category.

Record and Song of the Year : No complaints. A little poppy-leaning, but that's to be expected. No clunkers there. All legit hits, except Same Love, which wasn't a big hit but is a nice song with a good message (there's always one song like that in the mix)

Best New Artist : Absolutely disgusting that Lorde isn't up for that award. They nominated here for just about everything else they could. It's like they thought she wrote and sang one of the five best songs of the year, she was one of the five best pop singers of the year. She created one of the five best pop albums of the year, but she's not one of the five best new artists of the year? WTF????

In other news, Led Zeppelin has two shots in the Rock category to win their first competitive Grammy for the recording of their 2007 Celebration Day concerts in London (they were the recipient of a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2005).

They should have Zeppelin open the show with Whole Lotta Love and then have it segue into Black Sabbath doing Paranoid. Then have Roger Waters walks out and say "that is what good music is, good night", fade to black and then show a rerun of Big Bang Theory.

Perhaps if the artists that were nominated had stolen from those same blue musicians their music wouldn't be shit?

yup

even Entertainment Weekly top albums seemed generic and utterly blah.

the Washington Post's top albums didn't impress me either - it just elicited a 'huh?'

Well, this seems a little better than previous years, but Katy Perry?? Best new album I heard this year was the Pet Shop Boys' latest, though it got zero airplay as usual because it seems most of the US has forgotten they ever existed.

that's because they are fickle and brain dead, and the industry is mostly comprised of blow-hards

Re: 2014 Grammy Awards - Nominees Announced

I just noticed despite no radio airplay or chart success here in the US a band someone at work recommended to me a few months ago are up for an R&B grammy. This just might be my favorite song of the year and probably just the smoothest funkiest ditty I have heard in years. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ozr4KsZBTvQ

Re: 2014 Grammy Awards - Nominees Announced

The Grammys in the Sixties were absolutely terrible. That said, the Beatles were really the only artists of importance that decade who actually won meaningful Grammys : Best New Artist (1964), Record of the Year (Michelle), Album of the Year (Sgt Pepper). Of course they should have won way more than they did, but considering artists like The Who, the Rolling Stones and Led Zeppelin never won anything in their heyday, at least the Beatles got some recognition from the establishment. Almost nobody else did. I suppose Simon & Garfunkel were also important and won some major awards, but by and large the Grammys were a major disgrace back then, completely out-of-touch and ignoring almost every significant artist and trend. They still leave a lot to be desired even today, but I think they're much closer to legitimate popular music awards than they used to be.

Re: 2014 Grammy Awards - Nominees Announced

Bringing back this thread in anticipation of the awards this Sunday. Was very disappointed (but absolutely not surprised) to see that CBS is once again bringing back the worst awards-show host in America : LL Cool J. Why put on an entertaining product if you're not also cross-promoting one of your fifteen weekly hour-long procedural shows at the same time? He was SO terrible last year, and he still got asked back. I give up. At least I can make a drinking game out of every time I get reminded that he won a couple of Grammys back in the early Nineties.

Also a reminder that the 20th annual Grammy Nominees CD came out today. $9.99 at Amazon. I always like these collections, even if I don't dig all the songs. They serve as a pretty nice time capsule of some of the best music of the year.
This year's tracks:

Spoiler:


1. BRUNO MARS

"Locked Out Of Heaven"

Record Of The Year

Song Of The Year



2. ROBIN THICKE

"Blurred Lines" Feat. T.I. & Pharrell Williams

Record Of The Year



3. LORDE

"Royals"

Record Of The Year

Song of The Year

Best Pop Solo Performance



4. IMAGINE DRAGONS

"Radioactive"

Record Of The Year



5. DAFT PUNK

"Get Lucky" Feat. Pharrell Williams

Record Of The Year

Album Of The Year



6. KATY PERRY

"Roar"

Song Of The Year

Best Pop Solo Performance



7. JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE

"Mirrors"

Best Pop Solo Performance



8. SARA BAREILLES

"Brave"

Album Of The Year

Best Pop Solo Performance



9. MACKLEMORE & RYAN LEWIS

"Same Love" Feat. Mary Lambert

Album Of The Year

Song Of The Year

Best New Artist



10. JAMES BLAKE

"Retrograde"

Best New Artist



11. KENDRICK LAMAR

"Swimming Pools (Drank)"

Album Of The Year

Best New Artist



12. ED SHEERAN

"Lego House"

Best New Artist



13. P!NK

"Just Give Me A Reason" Feat. Nate Ruess

Song Of The Year



14. TAYLOR SWIFT

"Begin Again"

Album Of The Year

Best Country Album



15. BLAKE SHELTON

"Mine Would Be You"

Best Country Album



16. KACEY MUSGRAVES

"Merry Go 'Round"

Best New Artist

Best Country Album



17. TIM McGRAW

"Highway Don't Care" Feat. Taylor Swift & Keith Urban On Guitar

Best Country Album



18. JASON ALDEAN

"Take A Little Ride"

Best Country Album


I'm really disappointed that they went with Country Album nominees at the end instead of Rock Album, Pop Duo or Group or Alternative Album like in years past -- they always have Record, Album, Song and New Artist nominees and then end the album with one other category --, but at least they put those at the end of the album for me to ignore if I don't like the songs (and I probably won't).

Re: 2014 Grammy Awards - Nominees Announced

Untelevised Grammys continue to pour in prior to the show. Among the winners was my favorite - Modern Vampires of the City by Vampire Weekend as Best Alternative Album, Led Zeppelin winning their first Grammy for Best Rock Album for Celebration Day. Black Sabbath won for Metal Album. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis cleaning up the Rap Category Rap Album, Rap Song and Rap Performance for Thrift Shop
Alicia Keys for R&B Album, Rhianna for Urban Contemporary Album and Daft Punk for Dance/Electronica Album. Imagine Dragons for Rock Performance. The (defunct) Civil Wars for Country Duo or Group, Darius Rucker (aka Hootie) for Country Solo performance

I wish CBS would televise the show live West of the Rockies, but they stubbornly refuse to do it even though the awards take place in Los Angeles.

^ I loved the 'live' Grammy performance version of 'Get Lucky' more than the album version - Stevie Wonder you go!!

what the hell was that Macklemore & Ryan Lewis 'Same Love' performance with Madonna - agh! Madge looked ... old. and sheesh I thought Queen Latifah was finally to come out tonight (but she didn't).
