Chamberlain has got to be one of the most underrated elite rock drummers there is.

I don't care much for Sufjan, but great to see the Bolaño quote!

I know everyone's happy to have Sleater Kinney back and all, and No Cities to Love belongs on this list...but #11? Sorry, I just don't see what's so great about that album. That said, I was ready to get annoyed that the MMJ album wouldn't make the cut at all, and am glad to be wrong there. 1. Donnie Trumpet & the Social Experiment - Surf 2. My Morning Jacket - The Waterfall 3. Kendrick Lamar - To Pimp a Butterfly 4. Hop Along - Painted Shut 5. Houndmouth - Little Neon Limelight 6. North Mississippi Osborne - Freedom & Dreams 7. A$AP Rocky - AT.LONG.LAST.A$AP 8. Action Bronson - Mr. Wonderful 9. Alabama Shakes - Sound & Color 10. Pond - Man It Feels Like Space Again

Count me among the people who think they peaked on Chulahoma. But beyond that...El Camino as #1? As in, better than Brothers? No fucking way.

Lastly, I count Black Messiah as 2014, but it would still get my #1 this year so far, too.

I'm presuming/hoping Tame Impala will take one of those spots soon.

This may be my favorite of the year so far, we'll just have to see if it continues to hold good replay value. It may unseat My Morning Jacket's the Waterfall as my favorite album so far, and almost definitely unseats To Pimp a Butterfly as my favorite "rap" album, though this is only nominally a rap album anyway. I'd say my Top 5 so far is: Surf The Waterfall To Pimp.... Painted Shut and the totally slept-on Little Neon Limelight by Houndmouth

Yes to your question, and well-said on the observation.

Yeah I thought it was one of the better albums of last year, and they were even better live. Granted, it was a really weak year musically, but Tyranny was solid all the same.

Aside from two or three tracks El Camino was a pretty big letdown for me, and despite loving "Gotta Get Away", I thought Turn Blue was a dud, too. But "Tighten Up" is awesome, I was going to definitely point that out if you hadn't.

Whoa whoa whoa...granted, I've only listened through once, at less than complete attention, and this sounds fine and good, but Tame Impala's work thus far is of a substantially higher cut. I say that out of Tame Impala fandom and lack of being impressed by UMO aside from scattered songs, which apparently still holds true.

I've never minded "When Love Comes to Town", but the Rattle & Hum cover songs are definitely big-time duds.

May 6, 2015 on These Are The Reportedly The Most Popular Drugs At Each Music Festival
I think it's inteesting that half of the stuff I read about it calls it their darkest, and the other half calls it mellow and feel good. It's obviously about coming out of darkness, which is why aspects feel dark, but also about the excitement of new options, uncertainty, and possibility. It's not one or the other. But yeah, good point about At Dawn being darker than writers are acknowledging. MMJ in general have always had pretty dark lyrics that sneak into their music - "At Dawn", "Strangulation", "I Think Im Going to Hell", "Into the Woods", "Dondante", etc. It's just easy to overlook I guess because there's a lot of positive stuff, too, and the stage banter is so feel good.

Well At Dawn was after the BIG 2. But I would agree that after Z, The Waterfall is the first essential album, even if I do like big chunks of the two between. I also big-time agree that It Still Moves is their best, and that if it just had slightly tighter editing it'd be perfect. Really, even if they just cut "One in the Same" and let "Steam Engine" close the album that would be enough. It's cool that their two main classics are such different albums and sounds.
