That is what Beatrice Arthur said to Rufus Wainwright... minus one key word. Seriously: Rufus was a big fan, and one day he got to meet her and told her he loved to imagine that she/Dorothy from The Golden Girls was his grandmother. To which she replied, "I'm not your fucking grandmother!". True story.

I fucking love what Taylor Swift did this year.

OK, this is escalating beyond what is reasonably tolerable. I gave that TS thing a swift (sorry - for the bad pun, that is) run-through (sorry not sorry; I couldn't bear to listen to it all in full detail) and from what I could gather (please don't make me do it again) it's absolutely nowhere near the level of Tapestry, MUCH LESS Blue - I mean, unless you're comparing cheekbones, Joni and Swift might as well be different species. American Pie, meanwhile, is... these clusters of rhyme after rhyme that add up to a pool of nothingness. What can I tell ya, g.!

As for being too noise cool for pop school, anyone who reads the torrent announcements thread (I think there's, like, two of you who do ) knows I certainly don't spend the whole week surrounded only by blasts of depraved atonal fuck-you rackets. So I'm off the hook on that front at least.

I do look at that thread!!

I wasn't trying to say that folklore or evermore are just as good as Blue or Tapestry. I just wanted to throw out a couple of famous "singer-songwriter" albums. I thought (perhaps wrongly) that this was all about the kind of albums Taylor Swift made.

I love my Sonic Youth and Swans and Merzbow and King Gizzard and Electric Wizard, etc etc etc, but I will never be a snob about any genre or any artist if they make a good song.

Fucking Bee Gees have made many good songs.

Sue me.

Edit: I note that you gave it a partial, "swift" run through. Sigh....

Sufjan Stevens - The Ascension seems to be on many year-end lists. Anyone here dig it? I spun it a couple of times. I'm not sure what I think yet.

I thought it was dense and suffocating. But it may reveal itself.

I have a grand total of 1 Sufjan Stevens song in my collection: his cover of "Ring Them Bells" from the I'm Not There soundtrack. I remember the first impression I had of it was that it was "too much"... Now that I read your post, "dense and suffocating" might have worked too.

Speaking of Dylan, I am exactly 10% familiar with Obama's 2020 picks. How uncool am I!

Anyone check out Kid Cudi's new man in the moon album? Reviews have been generally indifferent but I'm really liking it.

I myself prefer compact lists.

Still assembling mine, by the way, but it's more like "stuff released in 2020 that I've actually listened to" than a ranking... with the possible exception of Diane Cluck's Common Wealth, which I'm spellbound by.

 


Skuj, if you really are after a "singer-songwriter" album of quality and true heart, look no further.
