That would be awesome if this just swooped in and gave us a definitive #1 (I mean right now for me RTJ2 is fairly decisive, but I feel like we should still have something more, or at least a rival for that…but really I just want a killer D’Angelo album).

I could see that. And I like it better than most of the albums here, too.

Does this consider that the guys buying might also be buying them for women who will go with them? I feel like when I’m at shows or in festival audiences for that kind of thing I see plenty of hippy chicks.

Damn right. Just driving around down South with Greatest Hits cranked up is pretty near perfect.

I need to listen to the Nude Beach & Jenny Lewis albums, but I’d say Hypnotic Eye was downright better than Teeth Dreams and about on level with the Adams (I personally preferred HE a bit, but they’re in the same range for me).

That “Even the Losers” bridge is one of my favorite moments in his catalog, Hell yeah.

And there is a monster 7+ minute “Breakdown” on The Live Anthology.

Razorblade Suitcase was one of the first modern rock albums I ever bought, and a number of songs from both albums are still good fun at the right time and place. But it is very easy to see through now, yes.

And I think I’m in the minority here, but I prefer Bush to Silverchair. Probably just because I was into Bush in my early teens and not really Silverchair.

My top two are The Complete Basements Tapes and Tame Impala Live, but I feel like they don’t count. So after them:

Run the Jewels – RtJ2
Aphex Twin – Syro
Julian Casablancas & the Voidz – Tyranny
Ty Segall – Manipulator
Flying Lotus – You’re Dead
St. Vincent – s/t
Foxygen – …and Star Power
Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers – Hypnotic Eye
Guided by Voices – Cool Planet
Mark Lanegan Band – Phantom Radio

I guess I’ll check this out…but he hasn’t remotely impressed me with a single thing since Zwan, and I’ve really tried out of love for the first run.

Would it have deserved it on a better week? Nah, probably not. But it’s better than it could have been, and sporadically excellent. Well done write-up, I agree with pretty much all main points.
