Several of these are just knee-jerk commercial success backlash: Drake, Gaga and Adele are all decent enough albums for what they are trying to do. Hardly “worst of the year’ stuff.
That being said, I’m relieved that someone who knows something about music agrees with me about Bon Iver, which is one of the most disappointing albums, maybe ever. Also, Bjork’s new album is tragically bad. Someone with abundance of talent trying for something unique and failing miserably.
Mocking that Lou Reed album is really like shooting fish in a barrel.

Oh, and Malkmus. Did he forget that the new Malkmus record is total shit?
Those are past dates. That Housing Works show was your show, remember?
