Are we going to have the same rules as last year, assigning points and stuff, or is this just the preliminary discussion?

I wan't you to assign points to your favorite lesser known music mediums. How many points will SACD get? How many?!!!!!!!

I have a lot of new music to listen to before I can be fully confident in it, but I definitely have a list of 25 awesome albums ready to go. It's been a great year for music.

I'd say discussion for now. I'm not ready to do a formal list yet. Will hit back later today with the contenders.

A lot. It's super.

I've got to get around to that Pinback album.

u2popmofo 11-19-2012 04:15 PM

I like it a lot more than their last album. There are two or three songs I'm listening to quite regularly at the moment.

My first 2012 track on that list is at n°14 :lol: I barely listen to separate songs though, only if I really like them so that's why I listen to older songs more often.

cobl04 11-19-2012 04:24 PM

How many plays for the top five? I'd like an idea of how often you played these songs, scumbo.

u2popmofo 11-19-2012 04:29 PM

Probably not super high in the grand scheme of things. Everything was quite close after the first 4.


1. The Shins – Simple Song - 30
2. Shearwater – Animal Life - 26
3. Shearwater – Breaking The Yearlings - 24
4. Why? – Strawberries - 21
5. Bat for Lashes – Laura - 18

nielsgov 11-19-2012 04:30 PM

That's about the same as my top tracks.

I can get behind most of those songs.

u2popmofo 11-19-2012 04:37 PM

I like Animal Life far more than Breaking the Yearlings, but since they come in that order in the album, I can't stop listening after Animal Life. Plus, the guitar at the opening of Breaking the Yearlings is awesome.

There are a lot of 1, 2 combo songs I have to listen to together like that. Sometimes they aren't even placed by each other on albums, I just find myself wanting to hear them together for some reason.

LemonMelon 11-19-2012 04:39 PM

Shearwater will be high on my list. Out of 166 albums and EPs, Animal Joy is #9 right now. I went a while without hearing it, but I listened to it recently before seeing them and remembered how great it is. Great guitars on this album.
