I dunno, if I had written a bunch of classic songs, I imagine I would continue to enjoy performing them to an adoring response from large crowds of people.

August 9, 2019 on The 5 Best Songs Of The Week
I love all those bands, but: All Spoon's best albums came out between 1998-2007. Deerhunter had an incredible run from 2008-2013 but they ain't what they used to be. I may actually be growing to enjoy the National's 2010s output more than their 2000s output (which is crazy because Alligator and Boxer came out in the 2000s), but the new album is a dud and it spoiled their perfect run this decade. Whereas VW and Bon Iver each have three perfect albums this decade (preceded by their perfect debut albums from the prior decade). There you have it: An airtight objective argument!

"Harmony Hall" is superior but "This Life" definitely has a summer jam quality about it — and it's miles better than "Sunflower," which despite worming its way into my heart, is still annoying jam band shit
