Run the Jewels 2 Also, it's pretty cool how many people how many people have entered to win a form of media that was supposed to be dead in the water well over 2 decades ago. Glad to see that trend with vinyl.

Rocket Man, though I might actually like the My Morning Jacket version better.

Read the emails, and yeah, he comes off as a hot head and pretty jerky, but the guy is in the middle of a custody batte/divorce where he is in danger of losing custody of his kids. A ton of people say and do stupid things in this kind of situation. Obviously I don't know the history of their relationship, but based on the emails, I'm surprised that she went for a restraining order. Kind of seems like a way to publicly drag him through the mud before the custody hearings. The guy's clearly not the most level-headed guy but keep in mind there are two sides to every story, and we are only seeing one side. On another note, the Auerbach thing is laughably immature.

"As a songwriter and frontman, he’s bland to the point of being invisible." Everlong.

I'll take "Abel" over "Mr. November" if only one shouty song makes the list.

Big fan of the resigned "Fuck" in the middle-eight.

Toss up for me between Ty Segall Band's Slaughterhouse and Titus Andronicus' Local Business. Going to go with Local Business.

Incredibly difficult to choose, but I gotta go "White Album", if for nothing but the fact that it has Blackbird and Helter Skelter - which were both somehow written by the same person. Also, Happiness is a Warm Gun, which was somehow written by one person.

I don't even think Paul McCartney would agree "Band on the Run" is a better song than "Imagine".
