That's interesting - I never heard those singles, so maybe that's why I'm enjoying the album as a whole.

Here's my honorable mentions. Some of these probably could have made my Top 20 with more listens or maybe already should have.

Disclosure - Settle
Foals - Holy Fire
John Talabot - DJ Kicks
Logos - Cold Mission
Neko Case - The Worse Things Get...
Neon Neon - Praxis Makes Perfect
Robyn Hitchcock - Love From London
Thee Oh Sees - Floating Coffin
Thee Oh Sees - Moon Sick EP
Various Artists - Saint Heron
Vampire Weekend - Modern Vampires Of The City

Phoenix is probably my biggest disappointment. Strokes and Franz Ferdinand were expected disappointments, if that makes sense.

Of course it makes sense. The Strokes have been meeting our extremely low expectations for years now.

Any follow up to Wolfgang would pale on comparison. I dig "Entertainment" and the title track a good amount though; the latter sounds like a John Carpenter synth score.

This was the first Knife album I've ever listened to and I hated it.

Agreed on Yeah Yeah Yeahs.

I actually didn't have a ton of expectations for Arcade Fire because I heard so much shit talked about it before I actually got it, so I enjoyed it well enough. It's too long, but I thought the same thing about the Suburbs.

Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Phoenix both very uneven. Wouldn't call either of them an outright stinker but still big disappointments.

Arcade Fire is an interesting call. I tend to agree with Imperor on this, but mostly due to my high expectations. I don't think it's bad, just underwhelming.

Afterlife, though

I didn't have high expectations for Shaking the Habitual, so the fact that half of it was unlistenable wasn't disappointing, just a waste. There are some fantastic singles on there.

Reflektor and YYYs would definitely be up there. I really liked Bankrupt and am OK with being the only one that did.

Every Arcade Fire album since Funeral has had filler. I don't think Reflektor has a particularly larger amount than either of the two previous albums.

Reflektor is easily the biggest disappointment of 2013 for me.
