|12 2012 Follow-ups I Can't Wait For|
These are albums which will get their follow-ups next year, if all goes raccording to plan. Here's hoping.
|12||Tyler, the Creator|
If you don't take it seriously, Tyler, the Creator's shock value is fun.
|11||Coheed and Cambria|
Year of the Black Rainbow
Year of the Black Rainbow was terribly uneven (with some gems). Here's hoping
the band's turmoil makes a great album.
Memory Almost Full
Do I really have to explain? It's Paul McCartney.
Call me a stereotypical collegiate, but I love Vampire Weekend. Contra was a solid album; I'm cautiously
interested to see how they allegedly were inspired by The Love Guru for their new one.
Muse got poppier, but it felt too much like Queen for me to hate it. As long as they don't stray further in the
poppy direction, I'll love their new album.
Man on the Moon II: The Legend of Mr. Rager
This is technically two entries. WZRD hits in January, and MOTMIII might hit by the end of
the year. I'm more excited for the latter, but I'm watching WZRD with great interest.
|6||Jay-Z and Kanye West|
Watch the Throne
This is probably happening, Jay-Z says. The Throne isn't perfect, but they're fun as hell.
Blue Sky Noise
Forget Anthony Green's solo album, I'm ready to see the whole band deliver an album that's as sonically awesome as
Blue Sky Noise.
I've heard the first two tracks off this CD, and I'm ready to join the Church of Rock and Roll.
I for one loved MGMT's weirder turn with 2010's Congratulations, but it'll be fun to see them head
back in the direction of Oracular Spectacular, as they're rumored to do with their new album.
The Odd Couple
Cee-Lo became ubiquitous in 2010 and 2011, and hopefully, with 2012, he'll reunite with Danger Mouse for a kick-ass
My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy
Jay-Z has hinted we might see a follow-up to this masterpiece next year. We can only hope.
|so foxy shazam is now basically a worse version of Electric Six, except most of you guys seem to like them more (presumably because of the music they used to play and not what they're likely to play in the future)?|
|Not really. I've enjoyed each of their releases for entirely different reasons. I appreciate their manic energy and the fact |
that they're eager to dismiss what they've done before and do something entirely different. And I wouldn't say they're a
worse version of Electric Six. They might share a few common influences but that's about it.
|I'm also looking forward to new 12, 11, 5, 4, 3 & 1.|
|Looking forward to 12,7,6 and 1's follow ups|
Oh and all the shit Tech N9ne plans to release next year
|Yeah 5 is the only album by Circa I care about, so looking for more in that direction. |
8 was a bit better than a lot of people gave it credit for, although hopefully they do better with the next one.
Strange that the list mentions McCartney but not the Beach Boys, who I'm pretty sure are reuniting and doing an album this year.
|#1 is good, that's it.|
|Apparently Muse's new one is a lot heavier than The Resistance, which can only be a good thing.|
|#1 is good, that's it. |
The Saddest Landscape
The Mars Volta
The Bouncing Souls
The Gaslight Anthem
Circle Takes The Square
|Damn, I did forget the Beach Boys. I've been listening to Brian Wilson religiously recently. Don't know how I forgot about them..|
