I'm not even going to take the time to articulate how idiotic I think Poochfuck's list is. What REALLY bothered me about it was how they decided to head each selection with a picture of the artist instead of, y'know, maybe the album art or something.
Like we need your help with killing the traditional record sleeve, assholes.
That's a really interesting observation. I didn't even notice that but now that you pointed it out I can't help but agree.
They said Washed Outs albums was best new music and I have yet to see any other site agree. It still didn't make top 50. It was a decent album but top new music? ehh... Another observation is the lack of Active Child anywhere. This was a great damn album.
Since Real Estate has been showing up on so many lists, I thought I should give them a try too. I don't hate it but they definitely seem to be the most underwhelming "best" album I've listened to so far.
Real Estate's in my top ten of the year. At first I just found it pleasant but the more I listened to it the more I heard new things. Their first album is pretty boring but this one is full of great hooks and stellar guitar work. It's the perfect lazy sunday album
