Find Me On:
I love making lists. I can’t believe I came to this so late and no one will see this, but I also can’t stop myself from doing it anyway. Also, I’m too lazy to check if these are ACTUALLY within the 5 year span, but they probably are…
Bon Iver – Bon Iver
LCD Soundsystem – This is Happening
Chance the Rapper – Acid Rap
Future Islands – Singles
Cymbals Eat Guitars – Lenses Alien
Real Estate – Days
Kendrick Lamar – Good Kid M.A.A.D. City
These are (mostly) my favorite albums of the last 5 years, and my qualifier for “favorite albums” tends to line up pretty nicely with albums I don’t get sick of, so I think they would work. That said, I’d definitely get sick of them after a few months and just wander into the sea.
I’m not a big fan, but I think the song is pretty hot and the video is great – it’s fun and weird and definitely humanizes her a bit. I guess what I’m saying is that I don’t get your beef.
I for one am ecstatic. I’m glad that he used the word “hate,” too. No mistaking that sentiment.
Don’t feel bad for me. I take great joy in lots of other music (and other things). I’m into fun-lovin’ music. I just don’t “get” the whole Ariel Pink thing. I don’t see the talent.
Also, this guy seems like a trolling turd. That’s off-putting to me.
Obvious to you. I hate it, and I gave it multiple tries. And it’s not because it’s “weird” either – I really don’t like this guy’s tunes, and I have a general distaste for adult music that sounds like it’s fashioned after children’s songs.
a) Desperate Youth… is a phenomenal album, right below Cookie Mountain in my estimation (and yes, above Dear Science and Nine Types)
2) “Careful You” is one of my favorite songs on Seeds.
I guess what I’m saying is, we have differing opinions on things.
Both of those songs should 100% have replaced a few of the more straightforward rock songs on this album and it’d probably be one of my favorites of the year. It still might be, but yea.
First four tracks are KILLER. The latter half of the album drags a bit with the punkier numbers, but this is overall my favorite TVOTR album since Return to Cookie Mountain.
“Careful You” blasted with the bass up in the car? Yes.
Am I the only one who thought this whole thing was pretty impressive?
Also, isn’t this the site that had DJ Quik as the AOTW like 3 weeks ago?
