I’m shocked at the lack of Local Natives inclusions in the lists i’ve seen this year. Thats a good record.

To ignore Tame Impala from the top 20 and include the dog shit that is MIA’s MAYA, is absolutely criminal.

I knows its been mentioned countless times above so apologies for the repetition, but i find it really hard to digest that Kanye’s record is the BEST record of the year. I’m not joining the I HATE KAYNE bandwagon by any means, but agreed the dude is a tool.

I actually like the record, there’s no denying the guy is a genius when it comes to producing – he will always be up there as one of the greats. Thing is, his lyrics and rapping do not match the production high standards. I fail to see how kanye has developed as a rapper since his first album (which i still think is excellent).

For pitchfork to give that album a 10.0 is laughable. To me, a 10/10 record should be complete and timeless. Will anyone be listening to MBDTF in 10 years? i think not. This is not a complete album – yes tracks like Power, Monster and Runaway are excellent tracks – but there’s definitely some fillers on there (not to mention a few mins of Chris Rock babbling on). And John Legend? REALLY?

On a lighter note, glad to see the Beach House record getting so much love. it really is one of the years best albums – stellar from start to finish.

JJ – No.3 though? That’s a shocker right there (and i loved no.2).

the fact that nme do a “cool list” is disgusting enough, but to re-post this utter drivel is just as bad.

nme are about as use to “indie” music as a chocolate teapot is to the queen’s butler.

August 18, 2010 on Who Should Headline Coachella 2011?

Apart from LCD’s show earlier this year, i’d have to say that that was one of the best live performances i’ve seen in a long time. people asked me if they could pull off msg, and i said they could, albeit a little reluctantly. they definitely did – immense.

Highlights for me were crown of love, we used to wait and of course, wake up. I dont think i’ll ever get the same feeling as i did when wake up kicked in. thousands of people singing. pretty amazing.

Regine is my new hero btw. she stole the show last night.
