|2013 Through The Peephole|
I haven't been very diligent listening to music this year. As many of you already know, my new job/80 minute commute/girlfriend has consumed all of my free time. Still, I've happened upon some really good albums this year. Here's my top 10 as we approach the year's halfway mark: 2013 in the limited scope through which I've heard it.
Gorgeous. His most consistent album yet, although there's no "Winter" or "Closer."
|9||The Flaming Lips|
This intrigues me but I struggle to sit through it consistently. It will probably climb this list as the year goes on and I find more time to listen to it.
I don't care what anyone says.
The Golden Age
If you haven't heard "I Love You", then you're missing out on one of the year's most romantic indie-hipster songs.
Modern Vampires of the City
Grew on me. Officially love "Hudson."
Black Horse Plague
Better than Sit Resist.
The 20/20 Experience
Took a long time for me to appreciate this, and maybe it's just a result of countless hours in the car to/from work, but this is near the top of 2013 so far for me.
Monkey Minds In The Devil's Time
Seems as though this slipped by a lot of people...it's a shame, because it's one of the best albums that I've heard in 2-3 years. Listen to "Lonely."
The Raven That Refused to Sing
To me, this trumps anything he's done solo or with Porcupine Tree. This is Wilson's magnum opus, and it won't need to age for very long to become a classic in my book.
