I was a huge fan of So This Is Goodbye, but I think 2006 was one of the years I wasn't posting on here. I still listen to In The Morning now and again. I don't like much of what they did before or after that album though, comparatively at least.

Wasn't too impressed with Pitchfork's 50-21. Hopefully the top 20 is solid.

Is this really a subgenre we need a "best of" list for in 2011?

The Best Pop-Punk of 2011 < PopMatters

Yeah, this is one I apparently need to hear. A few years back, I kept seeing No Age pop up on year-end lists, but I dismissed them, thinking that the description sounded like something for which I would not care. When I finally heard some stuff from them, though, I was really impressed. This could be a similar case.

Fucked Up's album has horrendous vocals but some of the most thrilling music I've heard in years. It gives me that very same rush that Born To Run and The Stage Names always do. Great record, if a little long to listen to regularly.

Strangely, I listened a few times to one of their albums in the mid 00's that my friend had, and for some reason I remembered them being an instrumental band. I was pretty shocked to hear lyrics when I clicked on the video link for the album in the Popmatters list.

Started listening to the Fucked Up album just over a month ago. Love it! The vocals make it difficult for a single sitting listen, but the songs work wonderfully on mixes. I've dropped a couple songs on mixes for my gf. Compliments on the comparison to Born to Run and Stage Names.

Likely story, Mikal.

By the way, every time I read or write your username, I think of the song "Michael" by Son of Sam. I don't know why, as I haven't listened to that album in years and years.

Where do you think Let England Shake will finish in your year-end list?
