Hey, E. Pluribus —
You need to grow a pair and actually sit down and listen to this new McCartney album. Shit, man, are you going to live out the rest of your life in a hermetically sealed, pre-1981 vinyl body-condom? Life goes on, dude!
I say all this because I’m beginning to wonder if you’re actually scared of the new McCartney record — as though the Sam Ash guitar sound is going to leap out of the speakers and infect your ears somehow. Look, man, I readily agree with the notion — which I assume you hold — that there has never been a bass drum sound as perfect as the one on the Chuck Berry single “Talkin’ ‘Bout You” — but the rock world keeps on turning, one day at a time. Like the man said: one monkey don’t stop no show!
Face your fears, Plurbie! Come up out of the basement and cue up this new disc! Justify our love! We’re rooting for you!
