I just caught up on the latest in this thread and I had no idea collating some lists to find B&C's albums of the year could be so contentious.

15 Grimes — Art Angels (1)

don't say that this vote is weird, just calmly carry on
The maximum amount of points you're allowed to give to one album is 15.

Also, I should probably listen to the Baroness album as it's getting lots of praise here. I've listened to some of their previous albums and enjoyed them, but they've never stuck with me.

Here goes.

1. Kendrick Lamar - To Pimp A Butterfly (15)
2. Sufjan Stevens - Carrie & Lowell (0 12)
3. Deafheaven - New Bermuda (11)
4. Joanna Newsom - Divers (10)
5. Pinkshinyultrablast - Everything Else Matters (9)
6. Julia Holter - Have You In My Wilderness (8)
7. Grimes - Art Angels (7)
8. Disclosure - Caracal (6)
9. Tame Impala - Currents (6)

It's a shame Kendrick won't win. I hope he at least comes second.

I'll do some songs of the year if I get around to it.

Will do. I can also gladly inform you that I listened to the new Health record and liked it. It was definitely more accessible than I expected based on the few older songs I have listened to in the past.

I think you are correct about Barnett. I really hate how year end lists tend to all start looking alike. I just wonder, do they all think, "if i don't include that one album/song (that i secretly think sucks) will all the other list makers think i'm lame?" eh.

My taste doesn't match up with about 98% of what i see 'listed' out there. I'm lucky if i can go through a list of 50 best songs and get 1 that is a contender for my best 15 songs of the year.

just my ramble, carry on.

My girlfriend can't stand Courtney Barnett. I love her, but it's much easier to enjoy an artist when you don't buy into all that external crap. I've just always really liked her music I've never walked around espousing her clever wit and proclaiming her to be a saviour of slacker rock or something. I just know that when I hear Anonymous Club my heart warms and melts, when I hear Avant Gardener I feel happy, comforted and energised and when I hear Depreston I hear warm, Paul Kelly-style Australiana and I smile.

Yeah, this is not meant to criticize you Mack because you are genuinely trying this and it's your first time, but 15 is the max for an individual album.

Yeah, don't get me wrong, i think she's good, but just not really my cup of tea, that I really was hoping she would be. I do think she is talented and definitely has some clever moments. And would listen to her any day over 12 minute drone, noise-rock, gregorian chant-death metal bullshit that Pitchfork et. al. likes to include.

I must admit, I am limited in my ability to listen through many full albums, but I've probably listened to 20 or so, and have "listened through" a couple dozen more.
My taste resides more on the indie-rock, indie-pop, folk, Americana, some electro, some straight rock, still a sucker for some 90's alt sounds.

I don't do instrumentals. I don't do metal. and rap is not often on my radar, except for some 'grime' type stuff. If someone make a song longer than 6 minutes, it better be fucking fantastic. I prefer my songs to be 3 to 4.5 minutes and have some hooks and melody. And i am a sucker for slower songs that really capture me. 4th of July by Sufjan Stevens was a song that just grabbed me and left me speechless this year. (somewhat fueled by personal circumstances).

Anyway, the album list will be difficult for me, but here are my top songs (so far) I think i'm pretty complete. I should probably start a top 15 songs thread really. In Alphabetical order

BEC SANDRIDGE - In The Fog, In The Flame
Colleen Green - Whatever I Want
DRALMS - Shook
EL VY - No Time to Crank the Sun
Everything Everything - Zero Pharaoh
Foals - Mountain At My Gates
Julien Baker - Something
KidWave - Honey
Lord Huron - Love Like Ghosts
My Morning Jacket - Hillside Song
Pine Grove - Angelina
Ryan Adams - Out Of The Woods
Sjowgren - Seventeen
Sufjan Stevens - Fourth of July
The Helio Sequence - Red Shifting
The Vaccines - Dream Lover
Wild Ones - Dim the Lights
Father John Misty - True Affection

Maybe not quite as highbrow as some, but i enjoy em.
