This. How could you make something so good as TLOR trilogy and then follow it up with The Hobbit trilogy? It boggles the mind.

Many people would say the same thing about Lucas.

I feel like Courtney Barnett isn't all that great; it feels like she's ripping off from so many people that it sounds like her original style and people are cheering all over her new record like NPR music does.

It doesn't boggle my mind at all. How do you turn a 300 page book into 12 hours of movie?

I had Barnett as my #3 album and Depreston as my #2 song. I can't say enough good things about her.

I just caught up on the latest in this thread and I had no idea collating some lists to find B&C's albums of the year could be so contentious.

14 Adele — 25 (1)
15 Grimes — Art Angels (1)

don't say that this vote is weird, just calmly carry on
The maximum amount of points you're allowed to give to one album is 15.

Also, I should probably listen to the Baroness album as it's getting lots of praise here. I've listened to some of their previous albums and enjoyed them, but they've never stuck with me.

Here goes.

1. Kendrick Lamar - To Pimp A Butterfly (15)
2. Sufjan Stevens - Carrie & Lowell (0 12)
3. Deafheaven - New Bermuda (11)
4. Joanna Newsom - Divers (10)
5. Pinkshinyultrablast - Everything Else Matters (9)
6. Julia Holter - Have You In My Wilderness (8)
7. Grimes - Art Angels (7)
8. Disclosure - Caracal (6)
9. Tame Impala - Currents (6)
10. Speedy Ortiz - Foil Deer (4)
11. Jamie xx - In Colour (4)
12. Destroyer - Poison Season (4)
13. Balthazar - Thin Walls (2)
14. Joey Bada$$ - B4.DA.$$ (1)

It's a shame Kendrick won't win. I hope he at least comes second.

I'll do some songs of the year if I get around to it.

Will do. I can also gladly inform you that I listened to the new Health record and liked it. It was definitely more accessible than I expected based on the few older songs I have listened to in the past.
