i gave it a listen and it just didn't work for me - seemed to be, ahem, 'wacky' where it could have been sleek and devastating - not enough good ideas - lack of strong melodic or rhythmic or structural sensibilities - that pop single wasn't bad and there were a few good moments but the songs lacked narrative and parts actively annoyed me with their gratuitous look-hither indie kook

Y - great album by great band
P - inoffensive noises trundle away in background, i barely notice or care
D - semi-interesting ideas executed really, really irritatingly
G - can't even remember if i've heard them, no interest anyway
A - want to throw knives at them, everything about them is so offensively awful - the qualities they're praised for ("adults pretending to be children" UGHHH) should be reviled in any civilised society

YYYs based on track record, not the specific album in question.

I've never listened to Animal Collective, but I edited a feature on them as a favor to a friend, and it made me want to tear the writer's arm off, set it on fire and use it to torch the homes of the bandmembers and their families.

kept 2 tracks from Y, 1 from D, didn't even make it all the way thru P and deleted it, didn't bother with G, would invoke the geneva convention if someone tried to force me to listen to A

of these, only heard the D and A albums, but both were too wishy-washy to make any kind of impression.

the little I've heard by grizzly bear has been despicable.

have no feelings about or interest in the yeah yeah yeahs.

have never heard anything by phoenix. only heard OF them in these lists.

even though I'm not fond of DP on record, they are somehow totally captivating live. so them.

I was really keen on the Animal Collective album at first, then soured as the year wore on.
I was cold on the Dirty Projectors album at first, then warmed as the year wore on.
I continue to think that Grizzly Bear's album is inferior to its predecessor.
The Yeah Yeah Yeahs album is pretty solid, I guess, but I have trouble getting excited about it.
I think this is probably the most monochromatic album Phoenix has ever made, but there are still some sweet tunes on it.

goldblapp (Whiney G. Weingarten), Tuesday, 2 February 2010 08:08 (nine years ago) Permalink

yeah but they're the only ones on the pedestal

grizz is the first indie band in a while that is really loved that i literally do not like at all -- just such bloodless music. i've never found anything they write catchy.

big hoos state of mind (J0rdan S.), Tuesday, 2 February 2010 08:09 (nine years ago) Permalink

Bloodless music? I'm not even sure what you mean by that....

Emily's Cheese, Tuesday, 2 February 2010 08:12 (nine years ago) Permalink

it's as if statues were playing music, and not in a good way like the xx -- it strikes me 'expansive' music that's completely hollow -- i understand why the aesthetic appeals to people but i don't understand how people sit through the songs

big hoos state of mind (J0rdan S.), Tuesday, 2 February 2010 08:14 (nine years ago) Permalink

I guess we feel exactly the opposite because your statues statement is how I feel about the XX. The dullest, most insincere music I've ever heard. Whereas I get a lot of emotion out of Grizzly Bear---particularly songs like Reprise and Foreground. Guess I just have different taste that you and most of ILX, although I did enjoy the Fever Ray album I don't think she merits 3 of the top 50 tracks....

Emily's Cheese, Tuesday, 2 February 2010 08:16 (nine years ago) Permalink

well about the last word i would use for the xx would be 'insecure', but i understand how people could feel the opposite way of me in terms of the statue thing -- i enjoyed fever ray too and don't think she merits three of the fifty tracks

big hoos state of mind (J0rdan S.), Tuesday, 2 February 2010 08:18 (nine years ago) Permalink

I didn't say insecure. I think they have fairly large egos actually. I just said insincere. Seems like a total put on. (talking about the xx)

Emily's Cheese, Tuesday, 2 February 2010 08:20 (nine years ago) Permalink

oh my bad. ok.

big hoos state of mind (J0rdan S.), Tuesday, 2 February 2010 08:22 (nine years ago) Permalink

I've seen them live and wasn't impressed. Lots of similar note plucking. Zero energy. Not that GB have much to offer in that department on stage, however I will say their musicianship , particularly the drummer and Daniel Rossen, left me completely impressed. Maybe I need to see the XX again, but when I saw them they seemed a bit smug, bored and droll

GrizzBear mostly a snoozefest, but 'Two Weeks' is unfuckwithable. Same goes for AnCo's 'My Girls', but the rest of their catalogue is larger and far more annoying, so yes they need to be destroyed first.
