December 2, 2016 on J. Cole’s “False Prophets” Appears To Be A Kanye West Diss
2013 also has Wakin on a Pretty Daze, ...Like Clockwork, Sunbather, Trouble Will Find Me, mbv, and Paracosm. Some really high highs that year.

Building off the AOTY thread - what are your favorite non-2016 records that finally clicked for you this year? For me it's: 1. Sleater-Kinney - The Woods 2. Sleater-Kinney - Dig Me Out (I had a lot to be angry about, OK?) 3. Slint - Spiderland

Only been at this for a few years but I've already had some major regrets from my adolescent days: 2011: I picked [i]Wasting Light[/i] and [i]I'm With You[/i] as my #1 and #2, whereas now I'd go with [i]The Big Roar[/i] and [i]David Comes to Life[/i]. 2013: Picked [i]Reflektor[/i], now it's either [i]Afraid of Heights[/i] or [i]Wakin' on a Pretty Daze[/i] Thankfully my 2012, 2014, and 2015 picks (Lonerism, Lost in the Dream, and TPAB respectively) are still holding strong, so I'm not too too ashamed.

(Not sarcasm, that name cracks me up every time, especially since most of your comments are very straightforward and sensible)

I feel like you have ultimate authority over username usage too, poopslap.

Also, "Hampire Weekend" is my favorite nickname for them. Glad to see Porches and Alcest get shoutouts here, both just missed out on my list.

Since it's an EP and not really an album, as its hard to compare the two really.

Didn't expect it but would've loved to see DIIV somewhere in the top 50. A little surprised that School of Seven Bells didn't make the cut, but I think they're this years prime example of early-year syndrom wherein it misses out on a lot of publications' lists because it came out in February.

Honestly ToD has been one of the years biggest shrinkers for me - loved it when it came out but find myself skipping a lot of songs when I go back to it, which isn't all that often anyway.
