Last time I was listening to Seventeen, Travis said it reminded him of some song, so hopefully he chimes in.

And I'll second Comeback Kid being nearly as good as Seventeen.

Foals' Holy Fire had that problem, I thought My Number was so much better than everything else, I'd actually consider skipping it so I could pay closer attention to the other tracks. There's been quite a few others too, I'll try and think of them.

I recently got the latest Hozier album, Wasteland Baby! I mainly got it because Nina Cried Power is such an incredible song. Well, I thought the other songs were not even near as good as that one. As it is also the opening track, the album really fizzles out just after the start. One of the few this year's releases that have disappointed me.

Oh hahaha I just thought of the worst one ever. How many times have I complained about it here? Rocket, by Primative Radio Gods. There's no worse album for this.

On CrasH Talk, I gave it a proper listen and don't think I'll go back to it again. Numb Numb Juice and Attention are the only two songs that I really enjoyed, that have that harder edge to them that makes Q so appealing. Nearly everything else just sounds like average rap. CHopstix is one of the worst songs I've heard in a very long time.

Warpaint's last album, Heads Up. New Song is miles ahead of everything else, it's not even funny. Possibly the best song of their career, certainly top five, surrounded by an album that is otherwise mostly boring.

Miss Sarajevo, Video Games and Cloudbusting invalidate these picks

Guided by Voices have their second album of 2019 out “Warp and Woof” and it’s another cracker.
What an unexpected (somewhat), excellent return to form.
Brilliant.

With Lambchop, Bruce Hornsby and Guided by Voices it’s been a great year for old farts so far.
Makes me even more excited for the Pixies album release this year.

The moment the drums kick in during I Told You Everything is stellar.

Warpaint is a big disappointment for me, looking back. I think that band had a lot of potential from a crazy talented rhythm section, but they just don't write many interesting songs.

Keep It Healthy is better than New Song. And the first track on Heads Up, Whiteout is also great so I’d have to strike that one down immediately.

And Peef, you will pay for your insolence.

16 Lovers Lane is a good album.
