My 19-year-old self was at this show, front row dead center. Bonnie Prince Billy opened (mislabeled "Bonny" on the ticket). I remember being so overwhelmed by Storm that I almost tapped out and moved away from the stage but I held it together. Probably would be my #1 show all time (def in the top 5), especially since I had not experienced anything quite like this up until that point in my life... not to say I hadn't seen some amazing shows already, but nothing so ... read more

Godspeed You! Black Emperor - Luciferian Towers

Godspeed has been playing a few shows in NY and Canada over the past few days and if you check the setlists they have been playing THREE NEW SONGS at these shows!!!!! The songs have been nicknamed by fans; flowers, flames and feathers.

Grandaddy - Blu Wav

unrelated to this album (or perhaps it is relevant), but something I've been thinking about.

in the 2010's there are currently 912 albums that have a user score of 80 or better. There are 8 albums that have a user score of 90 or better

I know your a bit of an Elephant 6 fan, I've recently been looping a lot of the collectives tracks (notably ones from Symphony for Nomad & Black Foliage), and I was kind of just wondering if you knew any nice under appreciated albums from the collective?

Yeah, Cousin is a fantastic late-career effort from a band that has been consistently putting out solid releases. Hope people don't overlook it during AOTY discussions but I'd personally call it my AOTY.

About

Music obsessed for 3 decades and counting.

🚨 only scoring from my vinyl collection 🚨

90+ are my all time favorites
80-89 are various degrees of love
79 and down are various degrees of like

79/80 is an important line of demarcation, as is 89/90.
