lets just be clear, with the benefit of hindsight (which everyone in here is using), this is how albums from 2001 fared in their top 20 best albums of the 00's
12 The White Stripes – White Blood Cells [Sympathy For The Record Industry, 2001] 07 The Strokes – Is This It [RCA, 2001] 05 Jay-Z – The Blueprint [Roc-A-Fella, 2001] 03 Daft Punk – Discovery [Virgin, 2001]
I fucking hate The Glow, Pt. 2. The first three tracks are so stupid good, but then the album goes on for more than an hour after that without anything exciting happening at all.
I've put more effort into trying to 'get' that album than pretty much any other album I have ever butted heads with. I just really can't stand it.
Fair enough. I'm not sure there is really anything to get about the album. It's just a pretty folk album with lots of interesting sonic touches. I'd say go see him live but what he's doing these days is is completely different and he refuses to play old stuff. Then again, that's one of the coolest things about Elverum cause he just kind of follows his muse wherever he feels like and constantly switches up his sound

I really really like The Glow, Pt. 2. Headless Horseman is a great song. It's a concept album told from the perspective of fire (or something like that), which is something you would only know if you read Pitchfork.

Did the Pitchfork list just come out, or does no one care? I was thinking about this earlier today, how I've correctly guessed their number one album for several years in a row, and Dr. Garbanzoured it had to be Bon Iver. And it is.
I've never disagreed with a Pitchfork top 50 as much as I do this year. I've never even heard of a couple of their top 20. Chill-wave?
