    i think harmon is more self aware, but i dont think it should be understated how much of the reminds me of the Lacey statement in its "I'm sorry I'm so fucked up" apology Harmon's fanbase is fucking insane, so her putting herself in front of that is insanely brave and I hope nothing comes down on her because of it (it will).

So far I'm enjoying this, which is strange considering I generally found what he's done in the 15 years previous to be generally boring and lazy-sounding.

    (100) Princess Nokia ~ 1992 Deluxe [112 Points / 3 Votes] Ranked Highest By: hotrock (4) “this is also really the album (mixtape?) I needed in 2017. she is one of few people an IRL FRIEND recommended I listen to mostly because of boricua pride and that time when she dumped hot soup on a racist dude on the subway which was also the moment we all needed in 2017. this album sounds in many ways like watching princess Nokia dump hot soup on people. it's sort of all over the place and unpolished and uncompromising. I can't wait to hear what she does next.” -hotrock (99) Courtney Barnett & Kurt Vile ~ Lotta Sea Lice [113 Points / 5 Votes] Ranked Highest By: Kemper (10) "Doesn't seem like people were into this one but Courtney always gets to me, and the chemistry and tossed off nature of it was really endearing to me. Also I got laid to this one time and I always have to brag about having sex so here is me doing that.” - deadlizard (98) James Holden & the Animal Spirits ~ The Animal Spirits [113 Points / 3 Votes] Ranked Highest By: Kemper (6) “Anyway this is pretty good so far and pretty different to the last one I heard. Which was called the Inheritors. I think Benny said this was like Caribou's Up In Flames without the joy and that's pretty spot on so far. Edit: This is really good!” - Kemper “I on the other hand like the newJames Holden a lot. It’s this joyous jazzy, folky, ambient thing. Way more up my alley than his last one.” – A Fine Bottle of Wine (97) Mhysa ~ Fantasii [114 Points / 3 Votes] Ranked Highest By: Plopsack (2) “But anyway I'm really thankful to @Merry Plopmasfor about postingMhysa 's Fantasii because it's fantasiitic!” - alien (96) Ride ~ Weather Diaries [114 Points / 2 Votes] Ranked Highest By: Kemper (1) “spicy friday first take: melodrama >weather diaries” - CI

Regardless, I expect Melina will be the star of the genre soon as it seems like she's capable of writing dream pop choruses and layering instruments in her sleep. There's a spacey vibe to a lot of these songs, thanks to reverb, synths, and interludes, but she occasionally lets all of that take a back seat for dissonant guitar solos. Not enough people here have listened to this!!!!" – Roger Sterling

    They have a deep misunderstanding of the show in that they find Rick, the alcoholic abusive grandfather, to be the hero of the show. It reminds me of the people who watched Breaking Bad and came away thinking "man, Walt is badass" on top of that, they think the show is exceedingly intelligent for spouting baseline nihilist views, while at the same time going nuts over mcdonalds sauce that was used as a punchline in one episode. A punchline that was essentially, Rick's motivation is useless and might as well be anything. Fanboys took this is "yes, the sauce is super important and i while berate people over this"

    To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand Rick and Morty. The humour is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of theoretical physics most of the jokes will go over a typical viewer’s head. There’s also Rick’s nihilistic outlook, which is deftly woven into his characterisation- his personal philosophy draws heavily from Narodnaya Volya literature, for instance. The fans understand this stuff; they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate the depths of these jokes, to realise that they’re not just funny- they say something deep about LIFE. As a consequence people who dislike Rick & Morty truly ARE idiots- of course they wouldn’t appreciate, for instance, the humour in Rick’s existential catchphrase “Wubba Lubba Dub Dub,” which itself is a cryptic reference to Turgenev’s Russian epic Fathers and Sons. I’m smirking right now just imagining one of those addlepated simpletons scratching their heads in confusion as Dan Harmon’s genius wit unfolds itself on their television screens. What fools.. how I pity them. 😂 And yes, by the way, i DO have a Rick & Morty tattoo. And no, you cannot see it. It’s for the ladies’ eyes only- and even then they have to demonstrate that they’re within 5 IQ points of my own (preferably lower) beforehand. Nothin personnel kid 😎

(5) “saw elbow last night. i didn't know the band very well but the gf loves them, and what songs she's played were good enough. It was pretty good. Garvey's voice is lovely but he does this bono-esque "hand reaches toward the crowd and the sky" every 5 seconds and it got really distracting and now comes the part where i look up the best moment of the night (The Birds) only to realize the studio version is only okay and lyrics are kind of bad” -alan (115) Cut Copy ~ Haiku From Zero [96 Points / 2 Votes] Ranked Highest By: John McClane (4) "The best Cut Copy album since In Ghost Colours. They’re pretty much sticking to their old tricks as musicians, but the last couple of albums haven’t held up as well as this one does. “Airborne” and “No Fixed Destination” are two solid anchors back-to-back in the thick of this album."- John McClane (114) Nadia Reid ~ Preservation [96 Points / 2 Votes] Ranked Highest By: dunderhead (2) “anyone else really enjoying nadia reid 's preservation? swear I've seen at least one other person post about it but the search isn't turning up with anything” - i am a damn ass bunny (113) Ryan Adams ~ Prisoner [97 Points / 3 Votes] Ranked Highest By: pentachris (7) “circumstances conspired tomake me listen to dra a lot this year. he kinda makes sounds more than songs lately but hes toogifted not to drop a handful of gems per album” – shakes “Ryan Adams is absolutely awful (no offence to literally everyone on... The Annex).” -plopsack (112) White Reaper ~ The World's Best American Band [97 Points / 2 Votes] Ranked Highest By: shakes (3) "title throws down a gauntlet and the songs gleefully leap all over it. every song shreds but judy french isnt just the best van halen song since 1984, it would have been a contender for best song on 1984"- shakes “more like best song on 198-snore!” – dliz, just now (111) Gorillaz ~ Humanz [98 Points / 3 Votes] Ranked Highest By: Tor (15) “I'm listening to Humanz.

Probably would vomit if she did a full album though.” - Plopsack (127) Lights ~ Skin & Earth [90 Points / 4 Votes] Ranked Highest By: Lights (7) "her last two albums are in my top 10 of the decade, and I think this suffers in the sense that while Siberia and Little Machines were big reinventions from the previous album, this is basically LM part 2 and it's just not as magical, but it's still a nice set of songs.” - dliz "About the only time someone named Lights will get any praise on this board!" - Lights (126) Drake ~ More Life [91 Points / 4 Votes] Ranked Highest By: Roger (17) “More Life really is a good time.

    (59) Mac DeMarco ~ This Old Dog [178 Points / 7 Votes] Ranked Highest By: Palo (3) "With This Old Dog he is keeping the same ‘trademark’ sound from his last few albums but giving some more thought to the lyrics. Love the synthesizer accents. This is his best release to date, even if it may at times not distance itself too much from his past releases."- Palo (58) Liars ~ TFCF [180 Points / 7 Votes] Ranked Highest By: benno (2) “I had no idea there were so many foolish people here who don't appreciate Liars . They're blatantly one of the best bands to come out of the early '00s indie scene!!!!!” – mnemos (57) Future ~ HNDRXX [187 Points / 6 Votes] Ranked Highest By: Nudist (5) “reminder that future + hndrxx is a massive accomplishment its honestly shocking to me how much mask off has blown up. great song and all, just shocked that out of this set of 34 that was the one to explode first. fingers crossed it's fresh air next” - keith "is future chanting percocet? im into that. it's reeally interesting hearing this slightly riced out backtrackn on future's song it just makes you miss old old riced wutang and realize what a pile of garbage future and r future is." - creep (56) Algiers ~ The Underside Of Power [196 Points / 4 Votes] Ranked Highest By: Bill (2) "These are like TV on the Radio if that band were way more interesting and way angrier. Vocalist Franklin Fisher has a voice like a fire and brimstone gospel singer, and he's fucking furious and he's letting you know. This is extremely obvious on ""Cleveland"" which features a segment name-checking black people who have died in alleged suicides, and then promises ""we""re coming back!"" It's aggressive, chilling, depressing, and hopeful all at once." - Bill

Let's just check what's playing today, oh Wolfmother. Fuck off.” -Tor (68) Litku Klemetti ~ Juna Kaiuuseen [157 Points / 3 Votes] Ranked Highest By: the dude, Servbot (4) torinn818 Feb 01 2017 Okay, so I love Finnish. The language, I mean. It just sounds so cool! It's European but not- Finno-Ugric, so both at the same time, sorta, y'know- and sounds like a mixture between Japanese and Italian. That's cool, right? Right?? I'm not the only one that thinks that, yeah? Anyways, the fact that it's in Finnish is the best part about Juna Kainuuseen. Otherwise, it's a mostly unremarkable collection of post-DeMarco lo-fi pop. There's not really a compelling song on this thing, except for maybe the title track, whose unexpectedly triumphant chorus barely makes up for its overstayed welcome. Other than that, not much to say about this thing- maybe my Mac DeMarco quip was more accurate than I intended, because this really does sound like Mac DeMarco music sung by a Finnish time traveler from the disco era (the "time traveler from the disco era" comment is a negative, in case you were wondering. I hope you knew that). What this means is that Juna Kainuuseen means nothing, sounds like nothing, and is good for nothing. Bad for nothing, too, but still- not really worth listening to. 5/10. (-1 because it's boring, +1 because it's in Finnish.) (67) Charli XCX ~ Number 1 Angel [159 Points / 5 Votes] Ranked Highest By: BEAST (6) "Had so much fun spinning this this year! Not the most consistent but I guess as a mixtape it isn’t trying to be, and there is some glorious shit on here." – ocean "Redeemed PC Music and it didn't even seem like she was trying that hard on this one. Pop 2 is superior, but I think I still stand by my take that ILY2 is the best song on either mixtape this year, and preceded by Emotional it’s one of the most showstopper back to backs on any album this year."- dliz (66) Laura Marling ~ Semper Femina [159 Points / 5 Votes] Ranked Highest By: Condite (2) "Pretty much a lock for my top 10 anytime she releases an album, she's incredibly consistent but still finds ways to surprise. The drop dead gorgeousness of The Valley, the sputtering percussion on Wild Fire, all the guitar work on Nothing, Not Nearly" –dliz “this is brimming with such masterful confidence that i think its silly to bother ranking it among her discography. id love a whole album like soothing but again, shes so clearly doing what she wants, and doing it so well, and i will gladly shut up and go with it” -shakes

    I've been on a New Order kick for a few weeks now. I've been obsessively listening to Low-Life so I figured I'd move on to Technique. The song Vanishing Point absolutely fucking rules. Between this and Brotherhood, Sumner finally learns to carry a tune. This album cover made me want to go into design and it's still my favorite.

Lets see if I can finish it! Six tracks in, its had a couple of moments, but why is it over an hour long? Is that needed?” - BEAST (104) Jesca Hoop ~ Memories Are Now [103 Points / 4 Votes] Ranked Highest By: Condite (13) “Another album that I liked way more than I expected to. Has some filler sure but way more really catchy ideas conveyed in an intriguingly sparse musical style.” – ocean “Jesca Hoop would be my real life choice since she's attractive when she doesn't put on too much make up (like pretty much all girls).” – Servbot (103) milo ~ who told you to think??!!?!?!?!

The middle of this album is the smoothest run of songs i heard all year, and jay sounds better than he has in half a decade at least rhyming over stevie, frank, the fugees, damien marley, and his wife. I have to admit I do sometimes yearn for the younger, brasher jay who didn't keep the bpm so low. still, props for artfully circumventing the tabloids." – Roger Sterling “The people who start and comment on topics of beyonce, eminem, jay z, kanye west and all this trash here, must be black radiohead fans and with a very bad taste of music” – ghost-horse (2013) (101) Toro Y Moi ~ Boo Boo [108 Points / 3 Votes] Ranked Highest By: Tor (8) “"Thematically, the album is a hazy trip through a rise to fame and the downsides of newfound celebrity--mainly losing the love of his life. Certainly, there isn’t new ground broken lyrically. Yet, presented against a floaty soundscape, it hits a sweet spot." - Palo

    (80) DJ Sports ~ Modern Species [146 Points / 4 Votes] Ranked Highest By: cygh (9) “it's always been a very pretty record but now in a way where i actually want to take it outside and incorporate it in my everyday instead of just admiring aesthetics.” -alan (79) Jesu & Sun Kil Moon ~ 30 Seconds to the Decline of Planet Earth [146 Points / 4 Votes] Ranked Highest By: keith (5) "To anyone who doesn't feel emotionally devastated by every bowel movement done by Mark Kozelek, I have this to say to you: Fuck You.” –keith “Dude needs to retire but this worked somehow” –CI “btw when I had the aux in DC @oil bitch strongly implored me to stop playing the greatest conversation in the history of the universe about halfway through ” (78) Jane Weaver ~ Modern Kosmology [147 Points / 4 Votes] Ranked Highest By: benno (8) “Was just listening to Jane Weavers Modern Kosmology due to it appearing in both Mojo and Uncuts list but Christ that’s a bore. Completely run-of-the-mill dream pop that sounds like it came from 2010.” – A Fine Bottle of Wine (77) DJ Seinfeld ~ Time Spent Away From U [148 Points / 5 Votes] Ranked Highest By: C.I. (6) “Fake as fuck but still an irresistible ride from start to finish” – CI “this dj seinfeld shit slaps” – I am a damn ass bunny “They don't say slaps anymore, it's borts now. That biz borts” – Servbot “no it isn't” – I am a damn ass bunny (76) Calvin Harris ~ Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1 [150 Points / 4 Votes] Ranked Highest By: Roger (2) "To many here, I would guess this was/will be written off as normie party music. idgaf, it delivers something i've wanted for years... 35 minutes of near perfect retro pop songs stuffed with guest stars doing what they do best. as if daft punk discarded the bullshit and just made 10 #1 hits with niles rogers like they should have. ""slide"" and ""heatstroke"" are easily my most played songs of the year. on the latter, calvin got young thug to fucking enunciate! that deserves its own grammy. This was a go to for driving, any sunny day, and every social gathering throughout the year. i urge anyone who wrote this one off after hearing the singles to at least revisit the more downtempo final two songs, where two female vocalists shine and lil yachty delivers another fire guest verse. hopefully harris produces more for younger artists like these in the future."-Roger Sterling
