Comments from Chris DeVille

The 20-year recollections haven't quite crossed over into my high school years yet, but I'm dreading that almost as much as I'm looking forward to writing about all that music.

We ran a Julie Byrne Q&A, gave her Album Of The Week, and featured her at our official SXSW showcase, so definitely not ignoring!

We did that because the Migos, Drake, and Paramore albums are better than those other ones you mentioned

Arcade Fire are still a great live band. Maybe they will return to creating great new music at some point in the future!

Thanks, LosingMyEdge. I didn't realize "Arcade Fire sure ain't what they used to be" was such a hot take.

Completely slipped my mind, but you can trust there will be a venue for discussing it tomorrow in one of Stereogum's other weekly franchises (wink, wink)

The first Metro Boomin beat to truly blow my mind was way back in early 2013 (although admittedly it's a co-credit with a zillion other producers) https://youtu.be/_Z3y1B-n4x4

Replying to the first comment to keep this at the top. When I first published this four years ago I got so much pushback for Sgt. Pepper at #1 that I began to wonder if I was crazy, with lots of people asserting that no serious Beatles fan would rank it that high. But at the time I definitely believed what I wrote. I probably still believe it now? As explained above in far greater detail, I love how much of an ALBUM it is. The way it all unfolds, and hangs together — pardon the cliché, but it really takes you on a journey. It has a couple weak spots, but I feel like all of them do, even Revolver and Abbey Road (which are the albums most often cited as the "real" #1). So I guess what I am saying is: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

That's fair! I guess a love of new wave has made Selena more exciting and Paramore less exciting.

I definitely frequented those websites, but I was never much of a gear nerd. (I was mostly just there for tabs.) I did wish I had an Ibanez guitar, though, because they seemed good for downtuning.

There will be a Paramore album writeup, probably in The Week In Pop, but you might have to wait until next week for it.
