So this means the Bon Iver retirement is over?!?!?!
Imagine Dragons is as much of a rock band as Mackelmore is hip hop, which is to say not at all. Actually on second thought Mackelmore is more hip hop than Imagine Dragons is rock n roll.
Really…. No David Bowie??? In what world does Phoenix make the list but David Bowie gets omitted? HAIM above The National and Arcade Fire? And what about Local Natives? Sorry, Yeezus is not the best album of this year. Modern Vampires should be at #1. Poptimism has gone too far.
Immortality. That song reminds me of beautiful melancholic rainy days in SF when I was in film school.
The tape rewinding part is The Arcade Fire equivalent of Radiohead’s TreeFingers. Great album. Right now the second half is doing it for me more but Arcade Fire albums always take a while to grow on me. We Exist, Normal Person, Awful Sound (Oh Eurydice), It’s Never Over (Oh Orpheus), Porno, Afterlife, Reflektor and Supersymmetry rank among their best work to me. Those songs will kill live.
