lol, i appreciate you being diplomatic about it, that's love.
To clarify, I don't care if Lu hates Tribe, loves Tribe. I'm only giving Lu shit because I think he's talented. Too talented to try to be a badass about not liking a milestone '90s record. As a listener, I think he's so busy trying not to look irked by public opinion. In his efforts to appear inpenetrable, he just looks vulnerable anyway. In my opinion, he should drop the 'you can't figure me out' act and write phenomenal, honest music. My intentions are not those of your run-of-the-mill underground fundamentalist. I'm on a different page. I can appreciate where you're coming from, but that's not my bag.

Peace, man.
