Funny how no one talked about the cover. Well compared to the MMLP1 opus it is a pretty good metaphor of what Eminem has become. Eminem has disappeared, and his house is just worth $1. Detroit is just ruins, so let’s have fun in ruins. Setting apart the completely ridiculous lyrics and nauseous everything-phobia, it is quite fun to listen to Eminem having stripped off everything from his music to basically behaving like a clown in a circus.
This is really premature evaluation, the second half is still growing on you. What about balancing with mature evaluation, like, two months later — or one year later. Legendary albums not always appear so in the first place.
They should have waited for Arcade Fire’s Reflektor. WTF. This list is nonsense anyway.
Ha. Just saw this comment. I said the same thing below. A great record!
Sincerely I don’t get the point about Belly’s Star. It is a brilliant record. I mean, why not. I would take out an awful lot of records from the list but not this one. I might have missed the irony perhaps.
Hey Pitchfork: this one goes to eleven.
I am quite amazed on how their sound had evolved without losing an inch of the urgency found on “Funeral”. This is one sounds like an instant classic.
Bloody time zone difference. I cannot be quick enough everything is already said.
Where The Streets Have No Name
Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah
One of the only true masterpieces I happened to love right when it was released, at an age where I did not know a lot about music, and I now rank very very very high even after having listened to a whole bunch of records.
I enjoyed Oracular Spectacular as an instant classic, but one might admit that Congratulations is closer to what MGMT had in mind in the long term for their music… I really cherish Congratulations, this is a messy yet fantastic record. I am not sure they gonna lose me with this one.
Around 4:45 the pretty good song becomes a GREAT song
Music is waaaaaay better than artwork
“Voix un peu faiblarde” indeed. But the overall performance and video is pretty cool.
excuse my French
Maybe that would have been more fun to do
Side 1: Neil Young’s Acoustic Albums From Worst To Best
Side 2: Neil Young’s Electric Albums From Worst To Best
and allow some albums to appear on both sides…!
I would have ranked “The Ghost of Tom Joad” higher.
Guys, you probably had a lack of Time
I mean, man, bloody hell I live in Europe and always come after the battle. I cannot say anything that has been said already. Kanye has to release another album in the few remaining hours.
This is funny because Songs for the Deaf is the first QOTSA album I bought the day of its release and listened to full length. What a great album. Turns to be a personal classic but it never came to my mind that it was an instant classic for so many people. I thought people usually prefers Rated R.
The first half of Vampire Weekend’s Modern Vampires Of The City is close to pop perfection, and I cannot help listening to it all in a row (this is worthy of notice in the mp3+stream area of randomness and playlisting). And the second half has “Ya Hey” in it. Damn, I was deeply struck by this album. Others in the list touched me, but nothing quite like the Vampire Weekend stuff. This is funny because (and I am not sure people agree with me on that) I found the previous albums were great but missing something, while this one just hit me in the face since the first listen.
(Perhaps I’ll add the David Bowie album too, although I agree it is hard to distinguish the real greatness of the music itself from the greatness of the surprise comeback)
Expect a cover of “Hammer Smashed Face” by Cannibal Corpse
I love “One Way Trigger”. My girlfriend hates it. The Strokes are back.
