Nice, it's one of my favs from the year. Check out the album before it when you get a chance some time. It had one of the highest ratings of any album Pitchfork reviewed the year it came out.

You might like Menomena, NSW. You might not. A lot of things might happen.

Seriously though, it's a good album (as are their previous werkz).

Yeah, you really need to get Night Falls on Kortedala.

Here's Popmatters' first from their yearly Best Of lists.

The 75 Best Songs of 2012 | PopMatters

Cool #1 and 2 at least.

I leave the LOTR quotes to the boys. I stick to playground quotes.

“Wasted Days” was the song of 2012 because it was 2012’s song.

I really like this line from the PopMatters review of Wasted Days. 2012 fucked me over big time, and this song definitely sums that up.

Props to them for repping Tay, but "Never Ever" is not even close to the best track on RED.

Did they only use singles when compiling that list?

Another example: "Love Interruption" is a good track, and was the lead single, but I'd take a handful of Blunderbuss tracks over it. Easily.

Hooray for lists!

Probably. I wouldn't call Myth the best song from Bloom either.

I thought you might be happy about that, GAF. I agree that they made some odd choices from artists / albums that definitely deserved to be on the list though. I actually really like Love Interruption though.

Clearly it's "Wild", which was also a single, no? Without a doubt the best.

Wild is fantastic. Irene is the best song on the album for me, though. That ending is absurdly good, especially live.

It's my favorite too, but "without a doubt?" Myth puts that shit in doubt. Troublemaker puts that shit in doubt. It's close, for sure.

Maybe if you had Laz's taste in things you'd know what it's like to have your opinion be fact. But you don't, so, enjoy living in the dark.

Wild was more influential.
