That “Here Comes the Night Time-Normal Person-You Already Know” stretch is pretty much perfect, no?
I have to say Modern Vampires of the City all the way. Masterpiece.
Here are Pitchfork’s Ryan Schreiber’s notes on his first listen, back in January
So yeah, BNM. No backtracking here.
Not that it makes any difference, tho.
100% right ditto.
for the first time ever I agree 100% with a stereogum ranking.
Definitely worth a mention over the Buddha of Suburbia OST.
Yes and yes.
This list is pure troll bait.
album of the year so far
This album is pretty great.
The list is life.
There’s a reason why the absent “Should I Stay Or Should I Go” might be their biggest hit and it’s because it’s bloody awesome.
Dirty Projectors – Swing Lo Magellan
Magical Mystery Tour because it makes little sense and it’s easy to love it because of it.
If this were my list, Condo Fuck’s Fuckbook would’ve been ranked, somewhere in the middle I think.
the true meaning of ‘mixtape’ has now been lost, forever.
If it were a publicity stunt, it so coherent with the music that I truly don’t mind.
that album cover begs for a caption contest.
Ah, it’s hard to come up with an ironic gif when it comes to Big Star.
Hammer & Tongs deserve Michel Gondry’s fandom and recognition. Great video output, specially the mind-bending video for REM’s ‘Imitation of Life’. And Hitchhicker’s Guide to the Galaxy and Son of Rambow are underrated gems.
The band doesn’t really seem to ‘endorse’ the gold vinyl…
Look at that! I need to call my mom.
Other than there’s no way the Storytelling soundtrack is better than Fold Your Hands Child… I completely agree with this ranking.
