And now I want to listen that album!
New music from The War on Drugs is always good news, and “Red Eyes” is amazing.
The only thing I can say about this list is that I’m happy for the little respect Stereogum showed for The Field’s “Cupid’s Head”. That’s my favorite album of the year.
The rest? Almost the same albums I saw in every other lists this season. But, hey! Fuck Buttons released an amazing album and it was even album of the week. It’s a lot better than most of the records here.
Thanks to this reviews I’m even more convinced: The White Album is simply the best.
In a Beatles list, the worst thing you can do is to rank Yellow Submarine at #1. This is a pretty decent list, with very good reviews. The only thing I can argue here is that Magical Mystery Tour deserves a better place. If some people still wants to revere Sgt Pepper, be cool with it, and recognize that album was really revolutionary and contains “A Day in the Life”.
It’s nice to find people who consider Skeletal Lamping was sooooooo underrated when it was released. But anything like Hissing Fauna. That’s a masterpiece. I agree with the list, or at least in the of Montreal albums I’ve listened.
30 Seconds to Mars is alternative. That’s all I can say.
Now I want “Cherub Rock” as my new ringtone.
Are there worse Smashing Pumpkins albums than the two MACHINA’s? With those two albums, the band became from ultimate favorite to just another “alternative” act.
But thanks for all the Mellon Collie love, the soundtrack for my adolescence. I can hear the 28 songs again and I find it just as perfect as it was in 1996, no matter how many lists and reviews I read or how silly Billy Corgan can be sometimes.
I was waiting that glorious disaster too!
I’m sure Tom Breihan haven’t watched the Kirin J. Callinan videos. If we had watched “Landslide”, it wold be the video of the week.
Oh that pic! At first sight I thought it was “The 10 best Edie Brickell and the New Bohemians song”.
I don’t know what happened after I heard “Humor Risk”, and now I get the sense in almost every Cass McCombs song, but yeah, some stuff in “Big Wheel and Others” are just messy. At least we have the charm of “Brighter!”. or “Morning Star”, or…. damn, it’s the Cass McCombs effect again.
I never thought I would say this but that Bruce Springsteen video thrilled me a lot.
OK, “Old” is a very good album, maybe the best from the last days but, hey, two weeks and not even one mention about The Field’s “Cupid’s Head”. That album is amazing.
This is the first time I totally agree with #1 from the list. “Strange Mercy” is the best, the song I remember everytime I read or hear the phrase “St. Vincent”. Of course, there were some omissions, but hey, some people are listening St. Vincent albums because of this list, so it’s awesome.
When you have an amazing song, you just need a decent video to make it work. But in this case, the video is also very good, so congratulations.
It seems there’s not enough Charli XCX but in Stereogum. But, yeah, “SuperLove” rocks.
Exactly. Charli XCX needed a song like “SuperLove” because we need a song like “SuperLove”.
Damian Abraham accepting he loves lists and awards was… cute? Nice Article, by the way.
Hey, thanks to “Home” I heard her complete albums in the nineties, and they have some great songs. Then, she released “Soak Up the Sun” and her 2002 record C’mon C’mon… and to me, that was the end. Now that she has a country album, all I can think is “Every song must be a country Soak Up the Sun”.
Two releases from How To Destroy Angels_ better than “Hesitation Marks” = No No No. And also, I consider that The Fragile deserves to be higher, only because of “The Great Beyond”.
Not really the best song they could release from RAM, but well, at least it’s not a bad video.
No “Reflektor”, so this is not the list for this week.
I will thank every comment that makes the “Reflektor” universe even bigger and greater. So thanks a lot.
Hey, it’s not the first time both lists “have cross-pollenated”. It was that time with “Chum” at #1 (Sorry for the geeky good memory, but I like Stereogum a lot).
