    Prestigious Prestigious

    this was the lowest amount of albums i listened to in a year since like, 2012. i listened to roughly 109, give or take a few im forgetting. so im doing a top 20 instead of a top 50 because there were just so many albums i listened to 1-3 times that never had the chance to make a lasting impression on me but i still enjoyed a lot regardless. so it was hard to rank past a certain point. anyway, here it is.



    1. the 1975 – a brief inquiry into online relationships
    2. foxing – nearer my god
    3. father john misty – gods favorite customer

    I'm Emotional, I Hug the Block

    I’m so far removed from guitar music these days that I wasn’t even vaguely aware that Fallout Boy even released an album. That’s wild. Most of the rock I listened to this year I found by accident.

    My biggest takeaway from looking at all these lists is that I really neglected hip hop this year. What are the best 3 or so releases that I should check out? Probably Earl right? I listened to the Vince album (or whatever) a few times and enjoyed that, but I have no idea what else came out this year.

    A crazy amount of good music came out this year. I didn't even listen to a solid 1/5th of my Top 50 until I caught up on missed albums within the past month. The only big exclusions I'm not happy with are mewithoutyou and Snail Mail, but I just didn't have enough time to properly give those two the attention they deserve and I'm not trying to halfheartedly throw them in there somewhere.
