Pretty much the total antithesis of my taste.

Daft Punk and Disclosure, sure. Everything else, meh.

 

What say y'all?

Wow...how did you have time to listen to all 50?

 

I like many of the ones I've heard (Neko Case, Daft Punk, Arcade Fire and a few others) but most of them I haven't heard so I'll reserve judgement.

I mean, it's been a while since Rolling Stone was considered the epitome of taste, but the Chvrches, My Bloody Valentine, Danny Brown, and Artic Monkeys albums are all pretty good. There are certain albums on the list that I think were included mainly based on those artists' past glories, which is frequently the case with lists like this.

I've listened to over 1400 artists this year.

 

As far as this list, I've obviously skipped over what I know is clearly not my cuppa. But the records on this list that I have heard are LCD at best. The exception probably being the Daft Punk.

 

Every year I post my own Best of 2013. Currently I'm whittling down a list of about 80 records (and that doesn't include Free EPs and beattapes).

Arctic Monkeys AM at #9 is one of the best albums I've heard in years. Straight up rock/punk with hip-hop-ish production and seedy after midnight lyrics of lust and desire.

 

Never thought I would become a fan but after 2 listens I was completely seduced.

:freak:

 

Where do you find the time for that?

 

I pipe music into my ear while doing my day job. It's the only thing that keeps me sane.
