Best/Worst Of (2012 Edition)

Postby GERARDAMO » Tue Dec 11, 2012 9:42 am

Yeah why not?

I'm just going to do albums because I'm half-asleep. Feel free to use whatever number of things you'd like.

Best Of
1. Stars - The North
2. Dragonette - Bodyparts
3. Bright Light Bright Light - Make Me Believe In Hope
4. Garbage - Not Your Kind Of People
5. Azealia Banks - 1991/Fantasea (I'm too lazy to pick one)
6. Carly Rae Jepsen - Kiss (I regret nothing this is a nearly perfect pop album. Bodyparts is a perfect pop album.)
7. Crystal Castles - III
8. Mother Mother - The Sticks
9. Perfume Genius - Put Your Back N 2 It
10. Purity Ring - Shrines

Worst Of
1. The Ting Tings - Sounds From Nowheresville
2. No Doubt - Push And Shove
3. Alphabeat - Express Non-Stop

I'd keep going with that one but I'm realizing that nobody on this forum would have had any hope for or interest in those albums... I was really looking forward to them, though. They were all really terrible... (I'm sorry, Shelbs, I don't know what you saw in Push And Shove. It's fronted by 3 singles, a weird attempt at rock dubstep, and then a bunch of filler songs that even ended up with one word titles that all sound like they were left over from The Sweet Escape, which also was not that great.)

Tentative best of...
1. Trust — TRST
2. iamamiwhoami — Kin
3. Grimes — Visions
4. Kontravoid — Kontravoid
5. Sleigh Bells — Reign of Terror
6. Crystal Castles — (III)

I don't even know. I'm bad at making these.

Best of:
Metric - Synthetica
Julia Holter - Ekstasis
Stars - The North
Chilly Gonzales - Solo Piano II
Trust - TRST
The Sea And Cake - Runner
Cat Power - Sun
Lone - Galaxy Garden
Fiona Apple - The Idler Wheel...
Snowblink - Inner Classics

Worst of:
Twin Shadow - Confess
Lana Del Rey - Born To Die
Purity Ring - Shrines
Beach House - Bloom
Alt-J - An Awesome Wave
Mumford & Sons - Babel

I'm sure I can think of something worse than that Chromatics album, that was painfully boring. As is Beach House, I find it hard for me to take them seriously anymore after Bloom. Subject to change. Twin Shadow is one of the worst things I've heard of in my life though...
also pretending the Ting Tings just don't exist and that Green Day stopped existing several years ago.

EDIT: definitely Alt-J. And I remembered that Mumford & Sons exists.

Marko didn't have Metric either :(

Synthetica falls somewhere into a forgettable middle for me... A Void, if you will... With like... MDNA and Coexist.
