Seek shelter, the best post-punk band of last decade returns.

The Ugly Duckling, a fable old as time, and one that shares parallels with the music of Iceage. Just as The Ugly Duckling found he was unattractive to some but elegant to others, Iceage’s filthy, rather cathartic style of post-punk will off-put many yet be nothing short of chaotic bliss to others. Their trademark euphorically raw style created a niche for them within post-punk at a time when the genre was running on fumes. ... read more

Crackheads running rampant in British streets, mental wards overflowing with patients, the grassy pastures of rural Britain. Squid’s jazzy post-punk revival opus, the apocalyptically eclectic ‘Bright Green Fields’, attempts to tackle the un-urbanized section of Britain, a massive 90+% of the country that goes oblivious to outsiders, smashing down the picture-perfect facade portraying Britain as nothing but sunny green fields and stunning cityscapes without sacrificing any of ... read more

A tasteful wunderkind of indie-pop and electronic dance music, Robinson's rapid spiral ... read more

Palais d’argile; where the eras of Remain in Light and In Rainbows live in harmony.

Sometimes, I ponder to myself about much phenomenal music I’m missing out on due to cultural barriers. Websites like RYM and AOTY will often tip me off about foreign albums that would otherwise slip through the cracks for me, as a Native English speaker, but are relatively popular in other regions; and its albums such as Palais d’argile truly make me treasure having something like AOTY at my ... read more

Enjoyer of experimental hip-hop, post-punk, and Ichiko Aoba. If you disagree with my opinion, then you are wrong. Sorry. I don't make the rules.

This list may seem kinda odd at first glance, but bear with me. I've seen many people complain about how the Must Hear Albums stamp is based on solely critics, so I thought it would be a good idea to ...
