sorry but i didn’t realize gotye had become the standard in which to make such a clear comparison….as if he was the first person to develop such an approach. on the contrary,when i first hear the song in its live form,my initial reaction was that it seemed to be inspired by a lot from those early efforts from AIR and royksopp in a more contemporary sense. one could even venture to assume the ghosts of NEU and suicide are clearly present here as well. certainly one would expect a reviewer to have a bit more depth than this….not to be so quick,and shall i say,lazily reference current artists,and frankly an artist who himself has conjured up sounds of caribou,imo.
well i feel overall it’s a great list. certainly better depth than what i’ve seen thus far. and nice to see that some of the more overhyped dross either didn’t make it(gaga)or was ranked low(adele)……adele was a fine album but hardly top 10,all things considered. also really nice to see one of these having finally included kate bush’s marvelous 50 words for snow. it’s one of her best works in ages and has not even been uttered on any list i’ve seen. i will say,i do question the omission of bjork,flo + the machine and lykke li. disappointing their albums weren’t considered for top 50 positions because they were actually pretty fantastic. and then in-turn see beyonce and drake of all people ranked so highly. and drake at no.2? why? you had one of the most intelligent,thought-provoking pieces of music released in PJ Harvey’s LES and it’s at no.8 and drake is no.2?
