yeah the brockhampton album from earlier this year is fire, criminally overlooked so far. Definitely worth checking out.

Yeah I'm such a failure. I've seen some comments in the past to have achieved like triple digits.

True, I can't really get butt hurt about an implied sarcastic response to down voting, and not expect everyone to get it. Next time I'll just give myself a pep talk "ya old goof, they'll never get it!" Either way, I'm still digging for that worst comment of the week accolade.

Who said anything about being surprised? All I said was "But Grizzly Bear..." and ya'll just ran with it as you always do, predictably. In a way, it's kind of your fault for this "conversation" going as long as it has. You've hurt my feelings deeply as well.

And you clearly want upvotes. PE was bland. Colorful language but nothing concrete.

I do actually. if it gets PE, it doesn't get AOTW. But the PE this week is a PE-es of shit.

I know. I've read it. Not saying that it's being ignored, just saying it should have been the AOTW instead of a bleh premie. Ya'll need to relax.

Please downvote me further for preferring Grizzly Bear this week.

Yeah the lack of love for the new GB material has been baffling. Mourning Sound and Three Rings alone have me insanely stoked for this album, but most blogs aren't which is a shame. Paste Magazine has been hyping it though.

I didn't care for this after one listen. In a year where we've had much better punk albums from Priests, and Sheer Mag, this just seemed like a mashup of those two. I enjoyed Tall Friend more this week.

I didn't care for Ivy Tripp tbh. Compared to Cerulean, it was such a step in the wrong direction. It had some good tracks, and it's not a terrible album by any means. Cerulean was just so perfect imo, that it's possible anything follow up would have been a letdown. "Under a Rock" was good tho.

I was all about this as my AOTW until I listened to the new Japanese Breakfast. Albums incredible. Great week. Sheer Mag album is top notch too.

I agree. Ride, JAMC, and Grandaddy all put out solid albums that most critics have dismissed just b/c they are throwbacks to the 90s. Hug of Thunder is amazing though. I don't know what people could gripe about with this album. It's 100% a BSS record, and fits snugly into their catalog. I won't say if it's better or worse than any of their albums, but I've been jamming it all day and it's exactly what I needed from them.

Hug of Thunder is most excellent. That Great Grandpa LP should be solid too.

Glad to have a down week. I don't think my ears have room for anything but Big Fish Theory at the moment.

Not as big of a week for me as last week, but I'm crazy stoked for the new Vince. Also, the new King Gizzard is great, and I'm looking forward to Algiers.

I love it. It may not be the booming masterpiece that mbv was upon it's return, but it's a worthy follow-up to Going Black Again, that I'll be going back to often.

Hmmmmm. I'm surprise you didn't include anything off of Deerhunter's Cryptograms or Microcastle. Twilight at Carbon Lake especially seems like an essential shoegaze song in my book.

Another big week. I've already listened to Palehound, Turtlenecked, and Fleet Foxes, and all of them are great. Surprised there's no stream or leak of Ride yet.

I think this also means that Palehound is the AOTW.

This seems to be the consensus with Weather Diaries. The reviews I've seen so far illustrate how it seems like a natural progression from GBA, with a few twists and turns in there. Nothing I've seen has stated it's a flat out mess, so that's good. Still can't wait to hear it.

I love the new Waxahatchee material. This albums gonna rule. Also enjoyed the new Ride track.

I agree. A lot of what's impressing me this year is the new stuff, but I'm still enjoying the old guards output. Spoon, Fleet Foxes, Thurston Moore, Grizzly Bear, and Beach Fossils have all put out either solid singles or albums this year, and the reunion albums from JAMC, Grandaddy, The Feelies (tho they didn't break up), and Ride have done what they do best. It's not particularly groundbreaking, but they're still good. I'm not mad or anything about the "lack of hetero white male music," it was just something I noticed and wanted another perspective. I'd agree that the there hasn't been any kind of revolutionary album from any white male artist, though the Mount Eerie album is devastating.

And that maybe so. Of my top 5 albums of the year, only one is a straight white male - Alex G, and that's not even my AOTY, nothing has topped Priests so far, but Slowdive is close. I just think it's interesting, and a topic people don't like to really focus on b/c of the backlash. Thanks for giving a well put together response.
