Find Me On:
On today’s to-do list – find Pride.
Dammit Richard Kuta, why’d you have to be so crass.
I can’t accept a Band list that omits King Harvest … and decry the absence of Rockin’ Chair, although I appreciate that last one is personal. But no King Harvest? Come ON.
I think Pepsi got exactly what it wanted…
Z was my entry… and now on the wrong side of my mid-30s, I can look back at that album with more fondness than critical thinking, so I find it hard to fault. But….. Circuital is the MMJ album I enjoy the most and the one that affects me the most. I know you’re not supposed to rate the latest one the best, but too late
I’m with you. I really like Evil Urges. Librarian, Amazed, Touch Me. I get it’s not the best. But it’s not the worst. But I find it hard to label a MMJ album as the ‘worst’
I completely agree with you and upvoted both comments accordingly.
I wouldn’t have put Lemonworld in there…. I prefer Vanderlyle… but it’s interesting how everyone’s list is really different. Says a lot about them. I love Wasp Nest too – I probably have that up. But have to agree with Bloodbuzz, even if it’s a bit obvious..
“Bryce’s fingers slide over his guitar strings like hands working their way into latex gloves”…. this line just made me feel a bit weird.
Thanks Stereogum, for making me feel reallllllly old. But… man… those videos… I so clearly remember sitting there in open-mouthed fascination and fear, wondering what they meant.
I always struggled with Disgustipated as a song, and I don’t think I even kept it on my computer after I switched everything over.
All is forgiven Stereogum!
To Kill A King’s new song Choices i really, really like, but I guess the indierati will decide they’re a Mumford clone…
I like both Frightened Rabbit and Mumford (yep, I do, and it doesn’t bother me if you don’t, or do as well). But after Mumford’s second, more-of-the-same-and-not-as-good album, I know which band I would take first.
But I GET what Mumford are trying for as much as I get what FR are – one sees the world through a glass half-full, the other’s is half empty.
I’ve also always wondered, when talking about bands who aren’t famous but should be, about the The Frames, and Glen Hansard.
Yep, this whole bear stuff has gone too far.
I am now going to listen to Dance Hall six times in a row, like I did with Rip This Joint last week.
It feels really, really wrong, but I can’t help but smile at this…
There’s no reason why you can’t do both, by the way, Stereogum. No reason. Just make the downloadable one the good stuff that IS available.
At the very least, I finally laughed at something recipebear said.
I completely understand what you’re saying… I think that’s why I love Exile the most.
Yeah, I struggle with Aftermath being in that spot. Exile’s my favourite, hands down, and I would put beggars at 2, but Let It Bleed at 3, easily. It’s a bit weird for me to read this list cos I’m so used to the UK releases. I mean, come on, Satisfaction isn’t on an album!
I’m impressed that someone actually dared take on this feat in the first place! And now I’ll read it.
EXACTLY! This is exactly the same as me. Hi, me!
Dammit. I reaaaally loved downloading, listening, deleting the ones I didn’t. Maybe burning the really good ones to a CD for the car (yeah, I was born in the 70s). The whole process was kind of relaxing. Streaming is the opposite. I feel all out of my depth.
Ab-so-lutely – No.4 is a great album. After that, things got a little less… dependable.
I feel like you let him off too easy, but I guess it’s the more honourable thing to do.
