haven't been around :( i'll do better guys i promise
also 2011 thus far bc y not??
2010's best records were lengthy, overstuffed, and ambitious, so it's somewhat surprising that the opposite seems to be true for the most major albums of 2011, finding artists streamlining, minimalizing, and perfecting their approach. James Blake's self-titled debut is the best example of this, and with it, I discovered a new favorite artist. And, until I figure out the words meaningful enough to sum up this album's impact upon me, that's all I have to say on that.
Did anyone even realize Burial released something for the first time in four years? Since 2007's AOTY? What the fuck?
House of Balloons
I don't listen to this for weeks at a time and then I come back to it and it all hits at once. Production is just sublime.
King of Limbs
This is certainly a minor album for Radiohead, being their third straight that doesn't attempt to break any new ground or innovate or surprise. It's just Radiohead being Radiohead, and Radiohead's gotten really good at being themselves.
New History Warfare, Vol 2: Judges
