Avey Tare killed it. I Definitely dig this more than Panda's releases.

Whoa. Edgy commentary. J/k. Good to see a strong opinion in the negative direction around here for once. Opinions are good, people.

Definitely more reviews and a ranking system. Album of the Week is a great idea. The Heavy Rotation can be a lot to take in and it seems like nothing is heavily rotated for very long. Also (keep in ming I don't know any technical web page terms), I think the site just generally needs to be cleaned up. When scrolling through the News stories, when you click Read More, you are taken to another page. I like the way Pitchfork has it set up where it the story drops down on the same page. The front page of the site has News stories mixed with videos mixed with features mixed with mp3's...it's a mess. I really think a cleaner layout would definitely benefit the user experience and get people to sign in and jnoin the discussion.

Whatever happened to the band "Surf City"? They "rocked out" and were "explosive." They sure as hell blew me away more than this record.

I have probably listened to Blood Visions more than any other album an its still in constant rotation over 3 years later. One of my first dates with my girl friend we to a Jay Reatard show. I have so many memories with his music. I am truly devasted by this. RIP

Disappointed at first because I felt like the best songs are songs we already heard before and we know really well by now. After repeated listens, other great moments start to pop up, like the bass in "Trouble Comes Running" and some of those great, extended, minimalist Spoon jams and grooves in "Out Go the Lights" and "I Saw the Light."

Micachu & the Shapes should definitely be on this list. It was one of the funnest and most interesting of the year.

This made my week. I hope my coworkers aren't scared of things labeled "noise," "punk," or "metal." I'm way too excited for this album.

Why am I more intrigued by Beck now, in the last couple of years, than ever before?

Gentleman Jesse was one of the most under rated albums pretty much... ever. I'm glad somebody, somewhere, is fiinally giving them a little credit. For some reason, the blogs didn't pick up on it... so basically nobody else did either. BTW, check out their Halloween show pics from last Saturday at the Earl. RAWK!!

So thats why he is suddenly trying to get 2 albums out before the end of the year. Things aren't looking too good for him or his asshole next year. But really, felony gun possesion? That is just stupid.

This list is actually full of great albums. I wish they included Let it Bloom by the Black Lips, though.

Seriously, F*** all you Politically Correct douchebags. Black Lips don't give fuck about all you whiney lame-o's. Black Lips and their fans are all about good times and rock n roll. I honestly can not believe you people can't handle a little fist fighting and a fowl mouth. Go hide under your blankets.
