8. Majesty Shredding (2011)
Ten years following their last release, Majesty Shredding is replete with wonderful songs and energy reminiscent of Superchunk's earlier albums. Tracks like "My Gap Feels Weird" could practically be a throwback to the No Pocky era, and it is tremendously heartening and exciting to see the band firing on all of its no-holds-barred cylinders. Missing is some of the welcome sophistication of later Superchunk records, yielding the hope that this palate-cleansing exercise in straightforward rock is just the next fascinating turn in the history of one of the genre's consistently arresting bands.
