The first three months are down and what a quarter. So many great albums came out in such a short amount of time. Compared to 2014's first quarter, I must say this by far surpasses it.
I've been listening to this for well over 3 months, since it leaked in November. Saw them live. Has not budged from my top spot.
No Cities to Love
Excellent return to form.
I Wasn't Born to Lose You
Another great return.
sometimes i sit and think, and sometimes i just sit
Better than the EPs, she's possess a knack for lyrical genius.
|5||The Soft Moon|
I know a lot of people are liking this as much as his older material but I think it's pretty solid. Far is a great single as was Black. He continues to blur the lines of post-punk and goth rock to a great degree.
Strangers to Ourselves
A lot of hate for this since it came out, but I think any new MM music is a good thing, and while there are definitely some duds, there's some really great tracks like The Best Room.
Wow. Did not see this one coming. Wonderfuly shoegazey and noisey.
Not their best effort but has some great tracks on it that came off really well live.
Great to have these guys back, and Fantasy Empire is their best since Wonderful Rainbow
Another great shoegaze debut. tops Nothing's Guilty of Everything as the best shoegaze debut in the last few years.
Panda Bear Meets the Grim Reaper
Another solid effort from Noah Lennox.
|12||A Place to Bury Strangers|
More hate on this one I'm sure, but I like their accessible nature on this latest LP. It's not their best effort but its still fun.
|13||Father John Misty|
I Love You, Honeybear
Doesn't beat his debut, but there's a lot of great songwriting and emotional heft displayed here.
You're Better Than This
Great follow up to a great debut.
Saw these guys open for Swervedriver last month. Very dynamic album.
Cerulean Salt was amazing, this isn't nearly as good as that record, but it's still very good.
Carrie and Lowell
Never been a big fan of Sufjan, but this is a pleasant album.
|18||Godspeed You! Black Emperor|
'Asunder, Sweet and Other Distress'
I've never listened actively to this band before, but I quite enjoyed this album.
Great album from this psych rock band.
Another solid effort from Ms. Marling. Title track is my favorite.
