If I had to rank the albums I chose, Heron Oblivion would be just beneath ★ at the top.

BUY IT, FUCKOS!
I have it! I like it! I just kinda liked it less over time. I love Meg Baird, love early Comets. I'm not sure Heron Oblivion is better
than, or an improvement on Comets on Fire or Espers. It's a strong album, though.
It came out really early in the year. Other records came out that filled the "rock" gap for me. Specifically the Thoight Forms album and -- I don't care how lame it sounds -- the Car Seat Headrest album. I know it's pretty over-saturated, but damned if it isn't a really good plain old indie rock album that satisfies some dumb need of mine from way back to rock out nerd style.
So yeah, vaporize me I guess. I'm lame.
