it got BNM
and aimless arrow got best new track
hope we see it on the album list
Probably still my second fav metal or metal-adjacent release of the decade after New Bermuda
I think team new bermuda is a relatively small one but it's the correct call imo
I am def team New Bermuda
luna is number one of my riffs of the decade list
"Helplessness Blues" not being higher is definitely a problem.
Is New Bermuda the best record of the decade just from a "guitar work" standpoint? maybe. it's a high-water mark for sure.
"Baby Blue" intro still makes me feel big things, hundreds of listens later
it's a top 5 album of the decade for me and that's the album's climax. seems like a no-brainer
lol maybe now is a good time to say that I somehow never listened to Have One on Me
Fun fact: I was lukewarm on FF after the debut. Thought it was good, not great, didn't buy the hype. I will never forget hearing "Helplessness Blues" (the song) for the first time sometime a little while after the album came out, because that song absolutely floored me in a way that rarely happens. As far as "musical epiphanies" go it was about as deep as it gets
GKMC being number 1 is pretty dumb. I Don't Like Shit... making it over Some Rap Songs is crazy too
I think you love that album a little more than me (definitely on my list somewhere; not quite that high), but that track is probably top 15 or 20 on my songs list. I think it really captures something about coming of age in this decade.
Year-end lists are interesting because each publication has the capacity to surprise you with something you just never had the time to seek out or listen to, decade-end lists are boring as fuck because it's the same songs and albums you're already aware of (and have been for years) in slightly different permutations
My biggest problem with the Uproxx list is that the blurbs are super insubstantial and boring. Maybe that’s because nobody reads these things and just searches for the songs/albums they love (and then fires off an angry tweet when those things didn’t make the list) but I want some substantive arguments for why these things are the best. Make your pitch!
No Baroness on either site is quite odd as well. maybe we’ll see yellow & green on p4k albums but i’m doubtful
ok im starting to think publications just forget Age of Adz and Gossamer came out this decade
Wasn't Blue this decade too?
No Blue was late 2009
i'm a bit late today
Supposedly The Fame Monster is going to be on their albums list, so being late 2009 isn't necessarily a barrier to something being on the...2010s list.
