I grew up with an above average love of Kool & the Gang, mostly due to videos from 1985 of my dad and uncle lip-syncing with perfect precision to a lot of these songs. I love these guys.

Two of my personal favorites are “Take it to the Top” and “Take My Heart,” but I love the shout-out you gave to the 12″ remix of “Fresh.” That’s the version I had growing up – can’t do without those epic drum fills in the intro.

Ugh I’m the worst. Don’t know how that posted.

Anyway, the run of “Love Dog,” “Shout Me Out,” and “DLZ” in a row on Dear Science is so perfect.

This is not related, but I revisited the Hamilton Leithauser album today and it’s still really good. Hopefully people don’t sleep on it in their year-end lists.

“Right Now” stood out as a highlight for me.

I love the Stereogum “bylaws.” And I don’t mean that condescendingly in the slightest – part of the reason I love geeking out here.

“I Wish You Would” sounds like HAIM and “Wildest Dreams” sounds like Lana Del Rey.

Agree about “Bring It On Home” as their best album closer. At 1:40, when the harmonica plays that last note, then the HUGE guitar riff, and then those two snare hits from Bonham before he comes in… so perfect.

(Also, what’s up man).

As a teenager, Houses of the Holy was always my favorite. “The Ocean” was my favorite Zeppelin song, loved “Over the Hills and Far Away,” etc. I’m not sure if it’s still my favorite, because it’s been a while since I’ve re-evaluated my personal rankings.

I think when I was 17, I was that know-it-all who was like “IV is so overrated!” but it really isn’t. It’s so good. And then you have that rawness on Led Zeppelin I and that huge sound on Led Zeppelin II. Seriously, the sound of Jimmy Page’s guitar on Led Zeppelin II is mind-blowing.

I still think “The Song Remains the Same” is one of the most exciting, thrilling album openers ever though.

What’s the over/under on how far Benji falls down everyone’s year-end lists?
