^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

I listened to Oneohtrix this morning on the way to work. Don't know how I missed that earlier but it was quite enjoyable. My 4 year old daughter didn't know what to make of it though, lol.

PS. Am I the only one that was underwhelmed by the Vampire Weekend album? Don't get me wrong. I thought it was really good, but I didn't necessarily think it was the best album of the year.

I straight up didn't like the first two, but I at least enjoyed this one. It'll probably crack my top fifteen unless the next fifteen or twenty albums I listen to knock it out.

Not the only one. I too liked it, but it doesn't have the gravitas of a year's best album, at least in my mind. Which is also why I feel a lot of blurbs about it now are struggling so thoroughly to affix importance to it.

Also, I had to laugh at the Pharmakon album being so high on TMT's list. It was the only album from this year I couldn't get through. Not that it lacked value, just that it was so incredibly abrasive.

Neither do I. I can't tell if it's the actual statement or the awful grammar, but I have no fucking clue what that means.

It's awfully hard to disagree with someone when you can't understand what they're saying. Maybe that's what they're going for.

One could say you...Abandoned the album.

I really like the Vampire Weekend album, and have no qualms with Pitchfork choosing it as best of the year. I like it much better than their debut, and particularly Contra, which I find uninteresting at best. Hannah Hunt, Step and Ya Hey are all amongst the best songs of the year for me.

They discovered subtlety on this album, which resulted in the awesome Hannah Hunt. But they also discovered completely unnecessary, highly irritating pitch-shifted vocals. So it's a wash for me. I'd say it's an unremarkable #1, but you guys know I'm biased.

It's too bad Chillwave is irrelevant now because Washed Out's album is being left off of so many lists, but was such a great album.

Yeah, I can't understand Paracosm being left out of a top-50 list. Not in my top 20, but it would have found a place in a longer list for me.

Catching up with some 2013 albums I had missed. I'm loving Waxahatchee and Chvrches. The Goldfrapp and Chelsea Wolfe are pretty good too.

I remember Impy saying all the hype around Chvrches was unjustified, and I'd have to agree with him there. One of the most disappointing albums of the year for me, if only because it didn't deliver on the strength of those early singles.

I'm really, really happy that Waxahatchee's album is getting the love it deserves. It was released early in the year and I figured it would be largely overlooked.

I think I have it on my short list.

I'm never quite sure what to make of Oneohtrix, all I do know is I generally like listening to it. That and I rarely ever spell the name properly.

I recently discovered it's pronounced as one-oh-trix. I always thought it was oh-neo-trix or something like that.
