Doof Predictions 2017

Please make a prediction rating/comment
1The National
Sleep Well Beast

[Doof Predicted Rating: 5] (Sput Average Prediction: 4.2)

Doof - "I'm expecting something a little different, maybe more rhythmic, perhaps more widescreen and soundtrack-y I dunno. I'll welcome any change so long as that quality is kept as high as before."

Tuna - "New National will be a 5, no question"

Boney - "Even if new National isn't an immediate 5 I will 5 it eventually, such is the way of the world."

Sandwich - "[3.5]"
2Grizzly Bear
Painted Ruins

[4.5] (4)

Doof - "It's been a long old time since their last one, so the pressure is on - I'm going to say they deliver."

Zak - "2 will be bland turgid, Brooklyn hipster rubbish."
3The Flaming Lips
Oczy Mlody

[4] (3.9)

Sandwich - "[3.5] or [3] - I'll never look at these guys the same after Fwends."
Last Place

[4] (3.9)

Doof - "It'll be great having Grandaddy back and the song they've released so far sounds promising. There's room for them in the musical landscape of 2017, of that I'm sure."

Sandwich - "[3.5] or [3] - Not expecting a masterwork here."
5Sun Kil Moon
Common As Light and Love Are Red Valleys of Blood

[4] (3.6)

judasgoat - "The Koz has dropped off in a big way since Benji, but the past couple of songs off that double album made me believe he still has some stories to tell. A cautiously optimistic 3."
6Run the Jewels
Run the Jewels 3

[4] (3.9)

Scuro - "RTJ will be a 4-4.5"

TheMrAlexK - "New RTJ will be a 3 I guarantee it"
7The War on Drugs
Lost in the Dream

[4] (4)
8Father John Misty
Pure Comedy

[4] (3.7)

rabidfish - "Meh. [2]"

judasgoat - "4 at least. Tillman has found his voice. And as long as he keeps using it, he'll be golden. Hell, even a retread of Honeybear's themes would be at least worth a 3.5."
Dear Tommy

[4] (3.8)

Doof - "Ground control to Major Tommy...last call for Dear Tommy. Come in anyone out there...?"
10Mark Eitzel
Hey Mr Ferryman

[4] (4 as only I'll rate it)

Boney - "Doof I'm already anticipating listening to the new Mark Eitzel, projecting a 3.5 myself so a 3.8 average." (Ed: Great ;P )
11Strand of Oaks
Hard Love

[4] (3.7)

[4] (3.8)

Doof - recently 5'd 'Pygmalian' so I'd be happy if they picked up where that left off in 'Laughing Stock' land.

Sandwich - "[4] - I mean, of course, there's always the possibility..."

dan - "Slowdive i'm scared it won't live up to expectations, but they're usually too good to disappoint. 3.8."
13Fleet Foxes

[4] (3.6)

rabidfish - "Need to shake things up a little, by their 2nd album I think they've exhausted their signature sound. If they can dig deeper, and come out on top, it might be AOTY material. I dunno man, I suck at this [anywhere between a 2 and a 4.5]" (Ed: yes you do suck at this smh)

judasgoat - "Who knows? They're going in a new direction, and the way Pecknold has described it (folk-soul?) has me thinking "FUCK YES AUTO 5" but there's just as much possibility for it to go wrong. We'll find out. Hard to predict a rating, but, gun to my head, 3.5."
14Modest Mouse
Strangers to Ourselves

[4] (3.5)

Sandwich - "[2.5] - This band will never have another exceptionally good album in our lifetime."
15Jens Lekman
Life Will See You Now

[4] (3.8)
16Massive Attack
Ritual Spirit

[4] (4.1)

Doof - "I forgot about Massive Attack, this has a lot of potential considering the two EPs were solid."

dan - "Massive Attack is gonna be absolutely amazing if their 2016 releases are any indicator. 4.3"
17Pissed Jeans
Why Love Now

[3.5] (3.4)
18Neutral Milk Hotel
In the Aeroplane Over the Sea

[3.5] (3.7)

rabidfish - "NMH: New memes, finally [2.5]"
19Queens of the Stone Age

[3.5] (3.9)

Tuna - "If there's new QOTSA it's gonna be a 4/4.5"

dan - "QOTSA really came back strong after Era Vulgaris, so i can see them carrying on nicely. I'd love to see Oliveri coming back tho. 4."
Near to the Wild Heart of Life

[3.5] (3.7)
21The Feelies
Here Before

[3.5] (3.8)

Sandwich - "[4] or [3.5] - I mean, of course, there's always the possibility..."

[3.5] (3.9)
The Optimist

29Dirty Projectors
Dirty Projectors

[3.5] (3.8)

Sandwich - "[4] or [3.5] - I expected a letdown after Bitte Orca, but was pleasantly surprised. Hoping the same happens this time."
Words From the Genius

[3.5] (3.8)
31Sleaford Mods
English Tapas

[3.5] (3.3)
32King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard
Murder Of The Universe

[3] (3.8)

[3] (3.9)

[3] (4)

Doof - "super overrated imo but they usually drop some quality singles."

rabidfish - "Having my reservations, I can't see Damon screwing this up in a big way. Gorillaz has always been his favorite pet project and he always brings his A++ game to it. I don't think they would've returned if he didn't feel he had top material to work with. [4]"

Sandwich - "[2] or [1.5] - ✝ Stay away."

FullOfSounds - "Gorillaz will be AOTY prob"

40Depeche Mode

[3] (3.8)
41Pearl Jam
Lightning Bolt

[3] (3.3)

Sandwich - "[2.5] - As to be expected."

dan - "Pearl Jam have settled in a nice little comfort zone recently, and they're good enough to pull it off for at least another album. 3.5."

[3] (3.4)

dan - "Dreams is a really nice tune imo and if Beck does a full album in that style it'll be a nice change of pace for him. 3.4."

ArsM - "Beck will be good, but I hope it follows the style of Wow over Dreams probably will be a 3.5."

TVC15 - "New System of a Down will probably be a 2 tbh"

Joeman82 - "New SOAD is going to be a 3.5 as well"

[3] (3.7)
81Death Grips
Bottomless Pit
