A fantastic song from a pretty disappointing album.

We Will Always Love You, is, as LM has just outlined, fucking outstanding. Fantastic record. I think it's a lot better than Wildflower, which had a bunch of great songs but was never really that enjoyable as an album in my eyes. This one lacks the standouts, but it doesn't really need them, it all sounds so fucking good back to back. I didn't dig the singles they released but they make complete sense in the context of the record. Good. as.

Wildflower is one of my favorite albums of all time, but the singles from WWALY muted my expectations, which turns out to have been a good thing. They just aren't a singles band, which is fine, because they are one hell of an album band. It's so fluid and engaging as a full album listen, even at 71 minutes. I love how melancholy yet hopeful these songs are, refusing to give up on people and on love, even when keeping the faith seems naive.

I see people talking about song of the year, and yet I don't see the word "Jody" next to it...

Maybe I should give Avalanches a chance. The only song of theirs I’ve consciously heard is Frontier Psychiatrist.

Ugh, YouTube Music links break the thread. Hang on.

I randomly came across this song tonight, and now I'm listening to it for the 3rd time:

Yes, you should. Frontier Psychiatrist is great and heaps of fun, but not really that representative of what they do. Since I Left You is a masterpiece, a record I listen to very regularly, and where you should start. I suspect you will enjoy Wildflower a great deal.

In the spirit of listening to notorious albums that were considered bad and whatever.. after listening to Chinese Democracy I’m now diving deep into Chris Cornell’s 2009 Timbaland produced album “Scream”...


Oof.

I have to actually order this playlist I made for you (and others), before it's Christmas and no longer serves a purpose.

Yeah, not the high point of Chris' career.

That album (Scream) was a tough listen. The production just didn’t mesh well. There’s a couple ok tracks. But damn.

The new McCartney album isn’t horrible.

I'm really excited to hear it, actually. I'm working my way through the last few albums I have left of albums I want to hear from the year, but I'll find a way to sneak it in there.

YouTube Music links crash interference, so you'll have to remove the space, but true to my word, here is a Christmas playlist of songs that don't really sound like Christmas Carols (mostly):

Will give it a spin - however it needs this song, my favourite Christmas song (posting this one day early!)
