BALLS. Not only did I miss the noms, but I wasn't online at all on thursday, and barely any yesterday, so I completely missed this. I somehow doubt that a ballot quite this late would be accepted. BALLS BALLS and thrice BALLS.

noms started in December, so that must have been a long vacation

Hmph. Well, that's quite clearly sarcastic (especially seeing as I have already posted to this thread), but I will clarify: I was offline throughout most of the nomination period due to the utter shiteness of Virgin, and thus missed that round of voting entirely. I have been compiling my list, and was intending to get it in on Wednesday or Thursday, but due to unforseen circumstances I couldn't get online on those days either, so have completely fucked it up.

The only thing that I really care about is that people add 20 extra points to El Guincho and 19 extra to the Chap.

I've made a "controversial decision".

I wish someone had pointed out that Merriweather Post Pavilion was a 2009 album earlier. It really has no place in the poll so I am taking it out. For those of you who voted for it, I will sent you an email and if you respond by tonight you can swap something else in for it. Otherwise, I am going to finish this today so I can start tomorrow.

When I run down the results I will include a little placeholder for it. I don't have anything against telling you now but I'm not quite there yet in the tallying process.

I'm very in favor of that controversial decision.

yea mostly because the album sucks and deserves no placing.

Musically, I applaud you for that decision!

It'll be top five placement for 2009, regardless.

ilxor, Sunday, 1 February 2009 20:58 (eight years ago) Permalink

well exactly. top 1, i predict.

and yet it will still suck more than anything else released in 09

Lex, speaking as a fellow Animal Collective/Panda Bear hater, I gotta say; You should give Merriweather another chance. Cause it's either great, or I somehow became brainwashed enough to like it.

Mordy, Sunday, 1 February 2009 21:08 (eight years ago) Permalink

Yeah, I'm on board with stripping it from the 2008 poll. I'm also on board with loving it, despite hating all the other Animal Collective records.

Johnny Fever, Sunday, 1 February 2009 21:12 (eight years ago) Permalink

i gave it one chance and it made me feel nauseous, maybe even worse than that gross panda bear solo record, which i didn't think was possible

lex pretend, Sunday, 1 February 2009 21:21 (eight years ago) Permalink

I listened to "My Girls" and I like the synth arpeggios and stuff, cause you know, that's totally my thing when done right, but then they ruin it with Beach Boys vocals, which always make me want to curl into the fetal position. Nauseous is absolutely right.

yeah, but that's cause it's a horrid psych BB imitation.


subatomic dawg (Ioannis), Sunday, 1 February 2009 21:29 (eight years ago) Permalink

the vocals are probably the biggest turn-off for me but i don't know how people can take the shoddy basic-photoshop-filter production, the queasy infantilism or the meandering, aimless, pointless remedial melodies, repeated inanely as though any of them were hooks you needed to hear more than once.

but yeah, his voice. dude cannot sing, like not at all, and it's painful to listen to. and i don't think i've ever seen anyone defend it, which means that even AC fans know deep down how shitty it is.

lex pretend, Sunday, 1 February 2009 21:32 (eight years ago) Permalink

So you don't like it, Lex? Weird, you've not mentioned it before ;)

Just FYI, since the new thread title isn't as obnoxiously long as this one and you might not notice it:
