Find Me On:
I would have made room for “Why Don’t You Find Out For Yourself,” but whateves, that’s just a personal preference thing.
I like both songs so far, but I don’t think they’re anywhere near as good as the best stuff from Angles.
I also wanted to add that even though I’m indifferent towards this band, I think it’s really cool that a dude with a banjo has carved out a spot in the top 40 amongst vapid garbage like Pitbull. This pop-y folk stuff might all sound the same, but it’s a refreshing change of pace from this club dance music that’s been using the same structures and beats for years now.
Basically, if you’re going to hate someone, hate David fucking Guetta.
Why does everyone feel the need to diss their clothes? They’re one of the most restrained looking mega artists I’ve ever seen. If their popularity and clothing choices are the main sources of your hatred, then you’re doing it all wrong.
Seriously, who the hell is going to voluntarily watch Jake Bugg’s set? Anyway, Blur is worth 10 good bands for my taste, so Sunday works just fine for me.
I dunno, that seemed like a strange vocal choice for JC. I liked everything else about it though.
You must be a blast at parties.
whoa whoa whoa…come on now. You don’t just tease people with a Strokes single like that. This is serous business.
It’s becoming quite annoying in this comment section that people somehow think the word “fun” shields an album from not being very good. I didn’t like the album at all, and that opinion has nothing to do with the level of “FUN” involved. I also listened to it yesterday on spotify before the p4k review was published.
Being fun isn’t an automatic qualifier for being good. I mean, hell, look no further than the band that shares the same name with your incredibly insightful use of the word “fun” twice as some kind of justification to the merits of the music. Maybe some people think it’s a stale and uninteresting album.
That cover looks like something out of Sid’s room from Toy Story.
Wow, this one certainly brought out the fringe. It doesn’t blow me away or anything, but this song serves its purpose. Maybe if JT made more music, Chris Brown wouldn’t be as relevant. That’s something we can all hope for.
I’d fly across the across the country to see Blur play at Coachella. But this is fake…and now I’m sad.
I hate the internet.
kind of changes things
No way Inspector Norse is number one…no wayyyyyyyyyyyyy. lol. Oh well.
this doesn’t make any sense, but I’ve been drunk since 7…so there you go.
Thanks for this. I probably listened to less rap this year than I have the previous 5 years combined. No reason for it really, but I have a ton of catching up to do.
Why do they rate albums if the actual graded number doesn’t play into the order of the year-end list? Don’t get me wrong, I really like what they did with it this year (anytime Chairlift gets a mention I get all warm and fuzzy inside), I just don’t see why they include a rating with their reviews if it doesn’t actually mean anything. That’s kind of being an attention whore when you jst want buzz with whatever the number happens to be.
Anyway, my list:
1. Chairlift – Something
2. Fiona Apple – Idler’s Dream
3. Frank Ocean – Channel Orange
4. Cloud Nothings – Attack On Memory
5. Swans – The Seer
6. Beach House – Bloom
7. Tame Impala – Lonerism
8. Father John Misty – Fear Fun
9. Ty Segall – Slaughterhouse
10. Sharon Van Etten – Tramp
What are we disagreeing with, the list or their reviews? If the list, fine. If it’s their reviews, well, if you don’t think they have a propensity for poorly written reviews (regardless of the overall grade), then I want to punch you in the face really hard.
Is there a particular reason why Disparate Youth has largely been ignored in this list cycle?
Their reviews still suck, but that’s a damn good list.
That was basically the greatest thing I’ve ever read.
