It's a wonder that I still know how to breathe.

For some reason instead of thinking of the correct song I first was thinking of a punk version of Laura Branigan's Gloria and now I want that to be a thing.

This is awesome as always. A couple other ones I liked a lot: DJ Koze - Seeing Aliens (probably my favorite on the album) AAL - You Are Going To Love Me And Scream Ty Segall - 5 ft Tall

I kind of laugh at the comments I've seen about Soccer Mommy being "See Snail Mail" in a "funny because it's true" way. Snail Mail took a long time to grow on me but I ended up liking it a lot. Soccer Mommy was a bit more immediate. I wish I connected with the Adrienne Lenker album more since I loved the last 2 Big Thief albums (though this might fit the same category as Snail Mail/Soccer Mommy).

Yes! I think I had seen complaints when Care came out that he was pretty corny and there was a lot of truth to that, but I didn't find much corny about The Anteroom. And maybe people were put off by the murky vocals but I was totally here for that.

We do! Thanks for yours too - some of the albums you listed I liked a lot even if I didn't have them in my list (Beths, Matthew Dear, Robyn, Holy Motors). And I think I listened to Wild Pink when it first came out, probably need to give it another go.

Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever - Hope Downs 24. Snail Mail - Lush 25. Kali Uchis - Isolation I didn't listen to a ton of rap this year, for whatever reason. I only gave a few spins to Saba, Noname, Vince and Earl though I did enjoy them a lot. I wasn't going to bother with Dose Your Dreams since I liked David Comes to Life but didn't love how long it was, and then I never really connected with Glass Boys. So it was really surprising when I gave it a chance that it ended up being one of my favorites this year. There's plenty of other albums I really liked this year that I didn't list, and I'm looking forward to scouring this page for more albums I've missed and need to check out. So I'm happy with the way things went this year in music. Apprehensive about things in general, but what else is new.

September 22, 2018 on Millie Bobby Brown Calls Haters “Weird” For Criticizing Friendship With Drake
I wasn't out when I started commenting here - and I guess I don't always comment, most of the time I start to type a comment then cancel it and sprinkle some upvotes instead. But it's been really helpful for me to see a wide variety of queer people here and the whole community being so supportive. I think it helped me when I did start opening up to people in real life. Unlike most sites, coming to the comments here often actually restores some faith in humanity. Plus I always like when people here remind me to listen to good music I've been ignoring. Thank you Dan for this, and thank you everyone. I love you all.

I was just telling someone yesterday that the 2010s lists are going to start the middle of next year and didn't even think about this list coming today. 1. Hop Along - Bark Your Head Off, Dog (although I just discovered Painted Shut and have been listening to it even more) 2. A.A.L. - 2012-2017 3. Beach House - 7 4. DJ Koze - Knock Knock (although I just discovered Amygdala and have been listening to it even more) 5. Jeff Rosenstock - POST- 6. Parquet Courts - Wide Awake! 7. Hookworms - Microshift 8. Janelle Monae - Dirty Computer 9. MGMT - Little Dark Age 10. Lucy Dacus - Historian Too early to tell but I liked them so far: FJM, Iceage, Jon Hopkins, illuminati hotties Also I keep forgetting to listen to Car Seat Headrest. I listened to Twin Fantasy a ton before he redid it this year and loved it, and I actually like the new version even better. But I haven't spent as much time with it so I didn't include it in the list.

I really liked Three Futures but I know I'm in the minority. Not just from the comments here. I saw her last year and there was fucking nobody there. Still put on a great show though, and I'm sure she'll find another label and do fine.

I'll give this album a chance but I won't be surprised if this is the first Beck album I don't like. I think I'd be way less disappointed if this came on in 2014 (2013?) like it was planned at the time. When Gorillaz released The Fall in 2010 and I couldn't care less, it wasn't a big deal because I was still listening to Plastic Beach nonstop. When they released **googles Gorillaz because I already forgot the name of the album this year** Humanz this year and I couldn't get into it it was way more disappointing. The extra wait makes it more of a letdown.

I figured all the people complaining about the new Arcade Fire songs were the same people hating on Reflektor. I liked the title track and I loved Reflektor. But listening to the album gave me the same feeling I had listening to Evil Urges - my initial positive impression quickly nosedived into utter disappointment. Here's to hoping Arcade Fire can rebound just like MMJ did on The Waterfall (or on Circuital which could be great for all I know - never bothered to listen because of how much I hated Evil Urges).
