Hissing Fauna, Are You The Destroyer?
my album of the year by quite a margin.
But it is most excellent.
There haven't been any completely amazing outstanding records in 2007, I don't think. Instead there have been lots more usual "really, really solid 9/10" sorta albums.
that you think you'll get bored of, but then every 30 seconds another really brilliant little bit of perfect cleverness comes along and gets you happy again
Every year seems to be full of 9/10 records and no stand out one for me. It's only when you look back after a few years and see which one you are enjoying the most can you call it a classic.
My view anyway.
Anyway back on topic, it's a pretty good album. Not the best this year though, anyway there's over half a year left before I make wild claims like that.
to get into and think of as a classic, I do have quite a lot of records that just hit me straight away, and I continue to love them for years.
However, lots of albums are personal classics or 10/10 because of the nostalgia that accompanies when I listen to records years later.
Nostalgia is as important for me as the music itself, often.
getting into this one. I liked The sunlandic Twins and Satanic Panic in the Attic much better !
