Five?!? Crazy. How many of those albums do you give more than one listen to see if it grows on you? Everyone has albums they've not liked at first and then forced themselves to keep listening which led them to loving it.

One of the virtues of growing older is becoming out of touch with current commercial cunting wankery.

The only new rap I've heard is those dj Muggs collaborations, Ghostface, and Czarface but it's always a nostalgic passing listen.

I'm guessing Kid Cuci is big in your country - moriko, multi-blow job, ameshika...Sorry I can't bring myself to say it. lol

I can usually tell right away, so some I don't even listen to all the way through. I still have the odd album I don't like at first that grows on me. I'll feel a compulsion to hear it again even though I hated it.

I thought I would try whittling down my list as much as possible to the ones I was absolutely obsessed with, then of that, only 5, and ranked to boot!

1 Girls Rituals - Crap shit
2 Charli XCX - How I'm Feeling Now
3 Arca - Kick I
4 Christina Vantzou - Multi Natural
5 Big Blood - Do You Want to Have a Skeleton Dream?

Yeah, Kid Cudiís probably U.S./UK only in terms of popularity except for that one big song. Heís a singer guy who kinda raps and ďinfluencedĒ a lot of rappers and singer-rappers but VERY RARELY releases anything that isnít total garbage.

Interesting voice though.

Anyway, Iím guessing weíre probably about the same age, and I havenít personally lost touch with new trends in commercial music *too much*.
Also, Cudi is on the last leg of his career, Iíd say. He made good in like 2006 or something.
He was on Wesrworld too.

At first (and, in retrospect, almost incredibly) Lester Bangs didn't quite enjoy Fun House as much The Stooges, was one of the many critics who thought Exile On Main St was a murky mess (in the bad way ), and just plained hated On The Corner (called it "garbage"). Not long after those three initial reactions, he wrote the definitive pieces on those albums that hailed them as masterworks ó and NOT because of audience or peer pressure; with the exception of a few reviewers, those records were still years away from being introduced to the commonly accepted rock/jazz/funk pantheon. He did it because he reconsidered them.

It's nearly impossible to imagine a figure like Bangs in our age, but one has to wonder whether he would have made such 180-degree turns had he just initially Spotifucked the albums and moved on with a damn click.

There is so much damn music these days. I don't see the point in listening to music I don't like.

New albums from Ono, Oranssi Pazuzu, Zombie Hyperdrive and Lightspear are all strong contenders for my year end list.

Ono’s “Red Summer” is probably number one.

I do not know any of those either! Gotta reveal my own shit soon just to see if the people around here are unaware of any of the ones I list...

The last two are synthwave albums, so if that’s not your bag you will find them tedious or cheesy but I love the atmosphere and don’t hold the genre-work piece against them. I’m even taking a stab at making that kind of music these days in addition to my usual activities. Fun rabbit hole.
Ono on the other hand are one of the greatest and most unique bands to ever live. Nothing like them, especially live. Highly recommended.

Without having listened to them it's hard to say anything, but I'll mention this: if retrofuturism is a key ingredient, you can't count me out soon enough. People I do love (to the point of having their whole discographies in physical format) like Julia Holter and Laurel Halo have in their palettes some of the same elements that synthwave acts claim as influences, but have come up with their own idiosyncratic art - one can always play spot-the-precedent, but ultimately it's Laurel Halo music and Julia Holter music.

Have you read Simon Reynolds' Retromania? (It's an actual question; I'm not being a jerk).

I have not, but thanks for the tip. And I understand the turnoff factor of the past-worshipping tail-eating pop culture of remakes, sequels, reunions and the like, and have very mixed feelings about all of it. For me, having come of age in the 80s, I know the 80s didn’t really sound like that and the new wave, metal and horror movie soundtrack worlds did not really mix at all. So to me it’s akin to Exotica, in that it creates an idea that never was and I enjoy it on that level. It might worship the past, but it is a new form from the past ten years and the past they revere just didn’t sound or exist in the way they present it. Plus all the sounds are in my vocabulary since I’ve always enjoyed these elements in their original form.

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.

Thanks for the suggestion.

I cannot tell you how many albums I have "disliked" upon initial spins, only to love later. It takes me 5 spins to form a coherent opinion about most albums.

I hate to admit that I disliked Automatic For The People on spin 1, and I put it aside for months.

I know, right? WTF was wrong with me?
