thought you'd get a kick out of that.

I'll add whoever that is to my list, since I'm struggling for things to listen to this year, for whatever reason.

She's got a cool and fairly unique sound. Her I'm Not in Love cover really threw me for a loop in the best way possible.

It sure looks like it would be stronger in terms of star power.

We should probably open a separate thread for this before the end of the year so it's easier to find.




Which ones have you already heard?
Great question... I'll start a thread later today / tomorrow if no one else does. Then I'll try to answer that question.

I am surprised someone with as good music taste as you would have Bomb anywhere nearly a best of the decade list. It would make somewhat more sense for someone like me (was my first U2 album) but it wouldn't get anywhere near my shortlist (though COBL would comfortably make a songs list).

None

If that makes any sense. I kind of think the same thing about the new James Blake album, which is by far my most listened-to album of the year so far, and I do like it, but I don't think it's especially outstanding.

Yea. Crazy that such a little gem from 2012 still finds its way on my rotation.

Ooooooh! I remember you playing that for me... I didn't like it?

I am not finished with U. F. O. F. But I love it.

I mean, let's put it this way: as I said in the thread someone made in The Other Place about re-evaluating their post-2000 output, I think this is the last album of theirs I can sit through without wanting to remove or re-arrange tracks. It doesn't have the peaks of No Line or arguably even SOI or SOE, but I think it has consistency, and a little bite, and nothing outright offensive to my ears. The lyrics are personal and only occasionally cringey.

Is the production uninspired? Mostly. Are there loudness war issues? Yes but someone made a nice vinyl rip you can listen to. It really hasn't aged for me, the songs I love still resonate. The weakest of the batch for me is ABOY, which at least has energy. Compare that to other albums' weak spots like Cock Crazy, Stand Up Referee, Get Out and that's what I mean about consistency.

And another thing I'll repeat: if Fast Cars and Mercy were on the album proper, I don't think I'd need to mount a defense. But as it stands I think it's a pretty impressive effort from some guys in their mid-40s. It connects in a way few bands are able to do, even if we know they're capable of more artistically daring things.

Those four are the most essential and will let you know if you want to hear more.

Hmm. Very hard for me to narrow down top albums for 2010-19, but some that come to me immediately:

Alcest - Écailles de lune
Alcest - Shelter (gonna suck to enforce my "one album per band" rule here)\
Blood Command - Cult Drugs
Caspian - Waking Season
Cult of Luna and Julie Christmas - Mariner
Death and the Maiden - s/t
Death and the Maiden - Wisteria (another artist where it's gonna suck to make a choice)
Eagulls - s/t
Esben and the Witch - Older Terrors
Film School - Fission
The Hotelier - Home, Like Noplace Is There
The Hundred in the Hands - Red Night
The Joy Formidable - The Big Roar

Marnie - Crystal World
Midas Fall - Wilderness
Priest - s/t
Purity Ring - Another Eternity
Save Ends - Warm Hearts, Cold Hands
Thrushes - Exposing Seas
Turnover - Peripheral Vision
Wolf Alice - My Love Is Cool

...christ and I keep thinking of great albums to add to this list. Don't know if I will even be able to compile a proper decade list really.

It looks like you stole that list straight off of Pitchfork.

Mine is a pretty boring list, but it does not have enough pop or hip hop to qualify as a Pitchfork list.

I've now realized that I should have included M83's Hurry Up, We're Dreaming and Solange's A Seat at the Table. Might also need to find a spot for Father, Son, Holy Ghost.

Saw them live a couple years back and they were a lot of fun. Hooky, driving rock and roll. Haven't heard the new album yet, though.
