|2017 Top 10|
what a time to be alive. cheers
Carrie and Lowell Live
Hell yes. I really enjoyed how the arrangements on this kind of meld the influence of his electronic stuff.
Sleep Well Beast
I listened to this album a lot, like everything they've done, but "Carin at the Liquor Store" is really the standout here for me. I associate this album with tripping on acid, along with Science Fiction. Fantastic shit.
See above. This album made me listen to Brand New heavily again for the first time since I was 13 when Daisy came out.
The release of this album reminded me of the existence of this band and I finally listened to Souvlaki and their -debut. Excellent stoney music.
|5||Stevens / Dessner / Muhly / McAlister|
This album somewhat reminds me of Age of Adz except it's more cosmic sounding and infinitely more listenable. I almost can't stomach listening to Adz anymore in comparison. The music videos for this shit are amazing when you're tripping.
|6||Hot Water Music|
Light it Up
Big step up from Exister, their best release in 15 years. Great hard rock album.
Poetry In Motion
I'm literally the only person to have rated this album on this site. They're a pretty decent reggae band, but the userbase here doesn't have all that many stoners, apparently.
Great return to form if you liked 311 to begin with. Like Hot Water Music, this was their best album in over a decade, so props.
After the Party
This should be ranked higher, but I'm already moving on from this band a little bit. A step up from Rented World, and even my mom likes "Lookers."
|10||The Mountain Goats|
This entire album almost reminds me of "Nightclub Jitters" by the Replacements, I really enjoy that jazzy lounge vibe. Nice to hear something different and awesome from Darnielle.
