Best list until last? (50-25 today, 24-1 tomorrow.)
getting some deserved recognition. Surprised the Manics record is so low though.
Great, GREAT record. And on that note, if anyone wants to go to this with me: http://www.last.fm/event/1332680++Mean+Fiddler+presents+Gilles+Peterson+Worldwide+Awards then... umm... you wouldn't mind lending me 26 quid, would you?
Also, great review of Zu.
decent bit of writing for each
music for each.
nice and accessible...you read about a guy waxing lyrical and then you can see if you agree with the text still fresh in your brain.
not sure I enjoyed the whole album quite as much as they did, but 'Sunlight' and 'Strictly Game' were too of my favorite individual songs this year, and I find that I've been listening to them a lot lately. Too bad it didn't work out. It didn't help that P4k gave the record a middling review, totally misinterpreting 'Strictly Game' in the process. It's obviously a bittersweet song, even more so now.
Then I was going to say "Only CMG could put Animal Collective at the top of their list and make it seem subversive". But they didn't so I can't. No Finale :(. Bit bummed out by that. The whole thing seems slightly safer than in previous years, I think. The top 20 or so does, anyway. Maybe it's just been that kind of year.
no way YLT should be in the top 20. it's the definition of a good-not-great album
I take it all back about CokemachineGlow, it's great.
I disagree with their criticisms of Random Spirit Lover and At Mount Zoomer though. And even they can't resist sticking Animal Collective/Phoenix/Grizzly Bear high up it seems (not that I can talk on at least one of those)
ima start reading this more.
Really thought he was off the pace for a lot of Born Like This, I'd still take MM..Food or Madvillainy as superior.
really deserves it. Nice to see Hecker, Emeralds, Baroness (even more excited to actually get a copy of this now) and WITTR doing well too. I still don't get what's so great about Born Like This, and I really want that OOIOO album now as well.
Big fan of this list.
Listening to Circulatory System now and will probably buy it, I like Mountains as well. Loads to go back to and investigate. I think this one has the best mix of (deservedly) already well regarded indie record and more unusual stuff.
also, why can't dubstep artists release album-length records? not enough quality or inspiration ;)
there has been loads of dubstep albums this year, really good ones too. Its fun seeing the indie sites getting confused though p4k putting a zomby album from last year in this years list cokemachineglow putting in a single...
ITS STILL STRANGE, DELIGHTFUL BUT STRANGE.
They reviewed it as an album when it came out as well. I guess even though it's only 2 tracks, it's EP length really.
I didn't even know Do Make Say Think released an album this year.
0/50! Very bad.
Although I sold one of em and totally would have got ooioo and maybe The Intelligence if i'd had some extra money.
Some of the reviews are guff but at least this site is a bit interesting huh
