I can't keep these songs/albums out of my playlists. I am burning CDs for
every week and I feel like I am only cycling out a few songs and keeping a
lot of the same ones that I have been listening to for a long time. At this
point in my life, I feel like I've been listening to some of the best music that
I ever have.
"Sleek, sexy, ultra-modern electronic pop with a deceptively dark underbelly." This
is quickly making it's way into my favorite albums of all time. The production on this
album is phenomenal and the female vocals are some of the best I've heard in a
This album is packed full of songs I could hear over and over again. "Guess I'm Doin'
Fine", "Lonely Tears", and "The Golden Age" are all superior Beck songs. Some Beck
fans have trouble making a connection with this album, but for me, it wasn't hard

Sometimes there are songs, that you hear, that just seem to drip with emotion, like
you can feel exactly what the writer of the song felt when they began to write it.
Most songs are created as an outlet of emotion for the songwriter, and here, it
really shines through. Incredible piano.
The mellow side...
The upbeat side... (both are incredible)

Nine Types of Light
A couple songs from this album, along with Dear Science, keep making there way
back onto my playlists. "DLZ" and "Will Do" are songs that I just keep hearing and I
wonder why I am not sick of them yet. I guess they are just too damn good.
Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix
"Love Like A Sunset" is a longer, climactic song that has one of the most enjoyable
"builds" around so it surprised me greatly when it finally all fell through into a well-
rounded song that was even better than the build. The first time I heard this song I
was driving through St. Louis trying to find my hotel. No one was on the streets
and that, plus good music, is always a great feeling. If I could recommend one song
on this list for you, to listen to on this day, it would be this one. Touchy synths.

It's Hard To Find A Friend
In my mind, this band wears the alt/indie outfit like no other band can. They
exemplify the genre for me. They only released a small amount of music and most
fans tend to praise Control, an album they released later in their discography. But, I
have been stuck on this LP and the EP below.

The Only Reason I Feel Secure
The lyrics are genius and the melodies are haunting but enjoyable. Some songs to
check out by PTL - "Criticism As Inspiration", "The Longer I Lay Here", "Suspect
Fled The Scene", and "Big Trucks".

I, along with many others, had always praised this album for the front side songs -
- But, recently, I have looked through to the instrumentals of this album. Some,
people have thought to be fillers, but now I see them as just as perfect as the rest
of the album. They each have their place on the album. Trent knows how to write
up a goddamn tracklist.
The Lonesome Crowded West
I had always had a desire to listen to Modest Mouse, in fact, I had even
downloaded their entire discography and kept it hidden deep in my iTunes library. I
have always had intentions to listen to each album, but had never gotten around to
it until I discovered this awesome entity. That would be you guys, here at
sputnikmusic. Modest Mouse is one of those bands that I see the most love for
around here, along with Radiohead, NIN, NMH, GY!BE, and other iconic artists.
Recently, I took the time to listen to each album and I truly enjoyed them all. There
are plenty of songs from them that I continue to go back and listen to.

Justin Vernon surprised the fuck out of me, again. I went to the NPR stream of this
album, not expecting too much, and I was blown away. It's not that Vernon and his
bros do anything different within the blues genre, it's just that they do it better.
Plus it sounds so relaxed, like somebody dropped a puzzle on the ground and it all
fell right into place. They make it sound too easy. And, if you want to check out
some footage of the guys playing at Coachella, they look like they are having a
great time. It looked fun.
Wait For Me
Please don't hate me for the mention of Moby's name on this site. I never was
much of a fan of this guy either til I gave his recent discog. a chance. It's really
hard to describe. It floats around from genre to genre, but one thing I took away
from this album (that's worth mentioning) is the string arrangements. Absolutely
beautiful. I rarely can appreciate them like I can on this album. I am not forcing
anybody to listen to it, it's just a strong rec.
I can't include this album on enough of my lists. If you haven't heard it yet, please
give it a shot. Mew's best, and quite possibly 2003's best. Also, this LP includes my
favorite 'opener' of all time, "Am I Wry?" ...
What have you guys heard from this album? Anybody gotten the leak yet? I am
planning on picking it up later today, along with that Shouting Matches album. I
know that I'll like it, but will I love it? I am a huge CuDi fan, so it's unlikely I'll be

@super - you really make great lists, man.
|stop deleting my comments or ill have sex with your mother. What would you say if i did that, huh?|
|love Purity Ring man. jam that shit on a fairly regular basis. |
|indicud is pretty damn average man. i mean the best songs on it were released as singles like 4 months ago so nothing grabs my attention.|
|If you're a fan of CuDi's earlier work you will probally find some good songs on the new record, but overall, it isn't that great. |
Good list man!

^Like I said before, it's not necessarily inventive, but they aren't bad at what they do.
|Thanks for the feedback on Cudi's work. I streamed the album last block today and wasn't impressed.|
|14 is one of the best things ever. Def the best Danish album of all time, along with Smashhit in Aberdeen (Malk De Koijn) and The Good Life (Kashmir)|
