Need to hear a few more things before I put a list together.

Well shit. Could've sworn that was this year. Subtract that. That album and the Lotus Plaza album just blend together in my head anyway.

I've lost my passion for listmaking. And there isn't anything from this year that I'm seeing as an eternal love like my favs from years past. Or maybe I'm just experiencing some anhedonia.

(not really in order but what came into my head sooner prob means I care more)

Cat Power
Dirty Proj
Passion Pit
Fiona Apple
Tame Impala
Saint Etienne
Beach House
Tennis
Donald Fagen
Dinosaur jr
Father John Misty
Peter Buck
Frank Ocean

FWIW, I've always considered you a hedonist.

Glad to see Peter Buck on your list. A very fine album.

This. Although I have listened to it a couple of times because it's so easy to listen to. Nearly always fits my mood.

I agree about the Alcest album. Totally fine and listenable, but nothing I'd give higher than a 3/5 to. I like their debut way more, the only other album I've heard by them.

The think I'm most ashamed of this year is that I have totally neglected the new Walkmen album. They were one of my favorite bands a couple years ago and I just have had a hard time getting the ambition to truly give this album a chance.

I will make it happen though.

It's in the running between one or two other albums as my favorite this year.

I can think of maybe five more albums that I would like to hear before the year ends:

Electric Guest: Mondo
John Talabot: Fin
Soft Moon: Zeroes
The Walkmen: Heaven
Woods: Bend Beyond

Yeah, I don't know what my problem is and why I keep avoiding it.

I think I've only ever heard one song by them. It was on a movie soundtrack I think.

I was intrigued to see this on your list; I didn't realize she was still making music. I gave it a listen this morning. Some of the work by the band is really good (the repetitive bass lines are fun), but on the whole it wasn't working for me. The 90s child in me still hears her singing and rapping over hip hop beats instead of big band, I suppose. Thanks for putting it in this thread, though.

Good call on the Cherry, LM. Totally forgot to check that one out after reading about it.

And I found Raw Like Sushi for $1 early this year. Sure, it's all downhill after Buffalo Stance, but that's one of the best tracks of the 90's.

RED can barely contain the pure, youthful, life-affirming power packed in each of its corners. It is the best record released in the last two years. Agile and ambitious, frightening, fun, a downright cocky artistic statement from America's most potent living songwriter.

That being said, I have also really loved these albums:

Dirty Projectors - Swing Lo Magellan
Jack White - Blunderbuss
Grizzly Bear - Shields
Fiona Apple - The Idler Wheel...
Lana Del Rey - Born To Die
Bruce Springsteen - Wrecking Ball
Beach House - Bloom
Bob Dylan - Tempest
Spiritualized - Sweet Heart, Sweet Light
Tennis - Young & Old
Frank Ocean - Channel Orange
Cat Power - Sun
Best Coast - The Only Place

It blows my mind how differently you and I feel about Red considering our past agreements regarding said artist.
