    Stereogum list is bunk for having Arca so low and for even listing Japandroids anywhere.

    Stereogum having Sorority Noise in their top ten discredits them, even if they had three of my top five.

    They are def a little biased since they did so much promo for Sorority Noise but it's a top notch record. Surprised to see Drake and no Future especially since they cruicified him for Views.

    It's among one of the few albums I couldn't bring myself to finish this year.

    Sorority Noise album really does nothing for me either

    I don't think it's super bad or anything but I was mostly just bored

    Wish I loved it as much as other people I really wanted to!

    Wtffff lyrically alone it's an excellent and unfiltered look at depression or loss but it's also great and dynamic melodic rock I don't understand

    Stereogum had Perfume Genius top three though so they did at least nail that.

    also it's a good time to catch up on what's already happened so far this year without being overwhelmed at the end

    I immediately x'd out of the Stereogum list when I saw them put Hundreth's cashing in on the Run for Cover Records market in their 20's. It wasn't bad until that point haha

    I can personally back like 2/3 of the list
    The top 20 is almost entirely great

    Well that list is very bad

    Nope, it's pretty great. Everything I know from it is incredible. Extra props for including Arca and that particular Priests song.
     
  24. CarpetElf

    point gawd Prestigious

    They all mostly good songs. But the problem about doing a rank is the implication of greater quality. I don't think any song mentioned is the best song on the album it appears on so how could they be better than everything?

    But yeah, Arca and Priests being mentioned was dope.

    Edit: Sorry, Die Young is the best on that album. And way too low on this list.

    I don't put much stock in these rankings, I just check to see if those I stan for pop up. I usually expect to see the biggest track, but it ends up being especially exciting if another cut is picked.

    You really don't think any of those are the best track from any of their albums?
