To my ears, I don't even hear excess, not to a degree that surpasses his earlier work anyway. As a matter of fact, Hurry Up is way more accessible and song-oriented than Before The Dawn Heals Us, which is explicitly silly at times.

Damnit, Ashley!!

At least you left TKOL off your list.

Yes. Your incessant yammering is one of the main reasons I listened to it.

I plead guilty re. the thread. I wouldn't have listened to that album otherwise, so thank you LM and COBL.

Hahaha that's what I thought too! "Destroyer" and "Kaputt" I thought they were metal I was pleasantly surprised.

I'm still let down about that.

I don't get it either, I thought it was good but it didn't exactly bowl me over.

Glad to see Let England Shake on the list, it's not one of my personal most favourite releases by PJ Harvey but I still loved it more than any other album this year.

I downloaded two Destroyer tracks solely because of the raving.

Nothing special. Won't be downloading more.

This is why music is so great, I find Kaputt to be one of the best albums I've ever heard, and others will wholeheartedly disagree. I can't see what's so great about R.E.M.; and yet they have a swathe of passionate fans.

Well to be fair, if I was looking at the last ten years of their career, I wouldn't be able to see what's so great about REM either.

I don't actually think they were that great, but they were good.

I wasn't implying you were a passionate R.E.M. fan. Just pointing out music is highly subjective.

Which two Destroyer tracks?

Collapse Into Now absolutely, 100% should not have been anywhere near our top 30, and I say that as a massive REM fan who's been listening to them for like 7 years now.
