Find Me On:
Agreed, the yacht rock thing has been happening for a while, at least elements of it (like the sax solo in “Midnight City”). It might get bigger though, I can see that. That would be stupid.
Nothing from Join Us should be on this list. The top 3 is solid, though.
Every Modest Mouse album is the worst one. This is one band that I could never stand.
This album is amazing. I was 19 when it came out, and it blew me away. It still blows me away. I want wind to blow.
Agreed. Death Cab is terrible shit. I’m not huge on The Postal Service either, but at least it’s listenable.
I know dude. It’s a put-on.
Yeah it’s just bad mixing, the keyboard gets buried through most of it when that is one of the main parts of the song.
And, agreed about Tegan’s singing. It seems like she’s actually gotten worse live in the past couple years too. Listen to any recent live version of “The Con.” Someone should be getting her a pop-oriented vocal coach, and I don’t mean that in a mean way. Even the big pop stars use them. I think it would really help her.
One of the best R.E.M. songs! Glad to see this getting some love.
YES. Thank you.
Yeah, Republic is way worse than WFTSC. It’s nearly unlistenable, aside from “Regret.”
I did sound for him a few months back and he was nice enough to me, but he just had a weird attitude, like he was too cool for everything. Funny guy though, and very talented. Fear Fun is amazing.
Yeah, a terrible one.
Except that banjo sucks.
Top 5, for sure!
Automatic probably isn’t the best album ever made, but it IS my personal favorite album, and has been since I was 18. It gets me every time.
Jason McGerr should be the drummer in every band ever.
Is that image Andrew W.K. as a baby?
Whoa, very cool songs. Which is a relief after the super weak Way To Normal and the passable Songs For Silverman.
Reinhold Messner IS Ben Folds’ best. That shit got me through some tough times.
More like Centipede HURTS!
Like MGMT playing to backing tracks on their laptops?
SUBLIME WITH ROME
I hate to say it, but when everyone was shitting their pants over this album, I was shitting my pants for A Rush Of Blood To The Head. You know, back when it was okay to like Coldplay. (I still love them, and that album.)
Except for The Whole Love, yes.
