If Urban Outfitters is where people get into buying vinyl, great. Hopefully as people grow up and attending more shows, they move away from UO and into local record shops, support local musicians and start buying vinyl at concerts. I see this as a good thing.

Riiight, the same way “Crazy Mary” isn’t a Pearl Jam song.

Should be the best 100 songs by The Grateful Dead. No band has ever had more consistently GREAT songs than The Grateful Dead.

Love to add:
“Morning Dew”
“Brokedown Palace”
“Shakedown Street”
“Jack Straw”
“Tennessee Jed”

Bands usually get paid more money to play charity events than they do just a normal gig…

haha right?! Listening to Psychic is what listening to an ALBUM is all about. Press play, go do whatever you’re going to do, bob your head, think about some interesting things…then it ends, and you walk over and press play again and repeat.

Some of these choices I just don’t understand as “BEST ALBUMS” – key word here is “album.” A$AP? JT? Haim? I get it, these albums had an impact on musical culture, but they did that through releasing a series of chart topping singles and having brilliant marketing plans, not through releasing a truly brilliant and cohesive body of work. I think in todays “indie” world, we lose sight (or maybe we’re not able to hold our attention long enough) to understand what really makes a great album, GREAT. Or shoot, maybe it’s me and I’m behind on the times and don’t understand how the masses currently views “great” albums. In my eyes though, when I claim something to be the “best album of the year” it’s got to have: Innovation, depth, powerful lyrics or powerful composition, it has to strike an emotional nerve and most importantly there needs to be cohesion through out. Love your top 5…but a lot of these are just hype albums in to me and don’t bring anything interesting to the table.

With all that said – Dark Side, Oliver Wilde, ZulA, Phosphorescent, Juliana Barwick, Deafhaven, Dawn Of Midi, Dirty Beaches, Steve Gunn,Teeth Of The Sea, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Nils Frahm and Vampire Weekend all top my list of 2013.

Oh come on – put on a nice suit and go to an Arcade Fire show! what do you have to lose? lighten up folks, the band is just trying to have some fun and get people to escape their normal routines and become a part of the Arcade Fire experience. that is all.

You’re too cool. I bet you wouldn’t put “Float On” on a best of Modest Mouse list either.
