Fucking beautiful record
I'll have it ready soon everyone. Please be excited. It's gonna be QUITE a list.
Probably got another 20 hours of deliberation but once it's complete you're gonna say WOW
I think my list is going to be primarily heavy releases.
I think I can make a cool list of 10 albums I really like. I'll give it another few weeks and come back.
Angel Olsen - Phases
Julien Baker - Turn Out the Lights
Phoebe Bridgers - Stranger in the Alps
U2 - Songs of Experience
Serious Q: To stand with sexual abuse victims, the etiquette here is to pretend Science Fiction wasn't the album of the year, and leave it off our EOTY lists?
I'd say it is a personal decision. I decided not to but I wouldn't fault anyone that did. I still haven't decided my future relationship with their discography.
I mean, that’s your own choice. It wouldn’t have made mine regardless of this, though.
I’d say it’s best to leave it off. It would have been my AOTY but it’s best to not recommend them to people in the future and that’s kinda what these lists do
I’m still so torn about Science Fiction. On another note, this will be the first time I’ve made a list in a long time. Feels good to have taken time for so much music this year.
1. Julien Baker - Turn Out The Lights
2. The Maine - Lovely Little Lonely
3. Movements - Feel Something
4. Phoebe Bridgers - Stranger in the Alps
5. Creeper - Eternity in Your Arms
6. Grayscale - Adornment
7. Halsey - Hopeless Fountain Kingdom
8. Paramore - After Laughter
9. Code Orange - Forever
10. Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness - Zombies on Broadway
I really dug the shit out of that Angel Olsen album but not sure if I should include it since it’s a b-sides album.
this is the easiest my aoty choice has ever been
emperor x is the best
guess i should listen to this is the kit, seeing them on monday with the national
if this was the case Post Malone would be number 1 for me lol
are you planning on listening to it ever again? i don't rate albums i don't plan to listen to
Saving this spot. Right now it's between The National and Jaden Smith for my number 1 spot.
Not anytime soon - but one day I think.
I’ll finalize and post my top 30 sometime soon. Kept good track of everything this year.
Also, yeah, uh, Brand New is pretty disqualified I think.

Took them off mine... yet I kept Decapitated. I'm not so sure if they're really guilty of the crimes they're being charged with. If they end up pleading / being found guilty I certainly won't be supporting them further.
