|My Top 15 Of 2010|
Well it seems like everybody's and every music site done it. And now that the dust has settled rdown and the Grammys (I think) have been announced, I decided to make my own list. Recs rwould be great, as always. And I got the list of albums from Wikipedia, so sorry if I skipped over rsome Independent stuff.
Its good, but thats about it. Better than the last album, but not even close
to Hissing Fauna or Sunlandic Twins.
Weezer's best since pinkerton. Aside from having THE WORST album art I
have ever seen, this one is actually pretty good overall. Bland in some
places, but some songs sound like a perfect combination of Pinkerton and
what Green could have been.
|13||As I Lay Dying|
The Powerless Rise
If you hate metalcore, youll probably hate this. But think metalcore plus
thrash. The guitar work on here is also a big improvement over their earlier
The great songs on here are almost weighed down by the terrible ones.
Not nearly as consistent as Demon Days.
|11||The Bouncing Souls|
Ghosts on the Boardwalk
Although the songs were technically all released in 2009, the album was
2010. Its a very mature and less punk release, but easy to enjoy
If you liked the first one, you'll like this. Although I must admit it's not as
good and falls flat in a few places (auto tune song is straight up terrible)
The best Eminem release in a while. A very emotional piece from the rapper,
he has some very good verses in here too.
Arcade Fire's grammy winning record may be the weakest of the three they've made, but its
still very good. I personally like it because I grew up and moved away from the city/suburb
that the lead singer/songwriter Win Butler is from. (Houston, not Canada)
The Shins frontman James Mercer combined with Danger Mouse to create
this great album that perfectly combines both artist's strongest aspects and
MGMT's F-You to pop and their fame is a fun listen and although it may take
a couple listens to realize it, there are quite a few pop hooks in each song-
just no Kids.
Burning Bush Supper Club
Bear Hand's first full length release may not be a masterpiece, but they
have a very distinct sound and have a very strong live show. I expect them
to get big in the near future.
|4||The Black Keys|
I'm a big fan of Danger Mouse's productions and think that the Black Key's
breakout record deserved the success it brought them, even if that success came a few
years later than it couldve come.
This is Happening
LCD's last record is fun the whole way through and shows added maturity
musically. much darker than Silver, but just as fun.
Halcyon Digest has a very distinct sound and ambience to it. A very well
produced rock record with a ton of pop hooks to satisfy almost anyone
High Violet continues the National's streak of creating amazing records,
with this one adding a new dimension to rise above the rest of their catalog. Every song on here is great.
|13, 7, and 1 good choices... but Vampire Weekend? And WEEZER?! Really?!?!|
|1 is a near classic, 9 is a good return to form for eminem|
|14 and 6 are really bad and 9 is meh, but this is a list i can get behind for the most part.|
|nice big d reference in your username btw|
|I agree Jackal... Eminem actually is a pretty good artist, and good for him for deciding to get clean.|
|darling - wow no one on this site has said anything positive about me putting AILD on a list. Have you listened to Hurley? its not bad at all|
jackal - yeah thats the main reason I picked 9. 1 is high up on my top 100 list, or atleast it should be
Satellite - haha yeah thanks, i figure its the perfect quote for music sites and stuff like that. plus its a great song too
|Honestly, AILD is still one of my favorite bands. They do a really good job at their concerts too! I think they have some room to grow as artists, but they've stuck to their roots pretty damn well. I think some of their newer tracks sound a little more... mellowed, but others are pretty damn brutal. |
I like their old stuff a little more, but Without Conclusion is fucking wicked!
|Weezer is crap though. Their lyrics make me wanna rip my ears out of my skull and eat them. |
|I know, right? It's not pretty. Not pretty at all.|
|Best thing to come out last year was, um...|
Deathspell Omega - Paracletus
|Paracletus killed, but not best of the year imo|
and know one actually gives a shit about the grammys, just sayin
|Oh my God this list is predictable|
Good stuff tough
|Yeah, AILD is one of the few metal bands that I'm still into now that I'm done with my metal phase.|
and zarquan i know no one cares, I just wanted to make a list and decided this would be a good one
|and baphomet, yeah I know there are really only so many albums that came out this year and everyone seems to like the same ones.|
|1. Oceansize - Self Preserved|
2. Gayngs - Relayted
