AOTY 2023
Gorillaz - Feel Good Inc.
This is one of the best songs I've ever heard
Brian Eno - The Drop
This sounds like Brian just discovered MIDI, made some songs in 20 minutes each, and sent them off. It's uninspired, flavorless, boring, and monotonous. And yet, I keep listening to it. Something about it how bad it is is fascinating to me. It's really bad, by the way.

The album cover gives off a vibe I can't quite describe. Putrid?

Disturbed - The Sound of Silence
One of my least favorite songs of all time
Built to Spill - When the Wind Forgets Your Name
None of the songs are bad, but none of them are particularly interesting either, other than Elements and perhaps Gonna Lose and Understood. It feels like all the songs are in the same key, and it makes it feel pretty repetitive. Plus the recording/production is a little questionable. The mixing is incredibly muddy, the drums sound lifeless, Doug's voice is buried in the background under layers of echo, and it just doesn't sound punchy. Disappointing for me, unfortunately.
Dr. Dog - Here Comes the Hotstepper
Really makes me want to go to a protest to stop a locomotive.
Radiohead - Pablo Honey
This album has three good songs
Pixies - Head Carrier
The songs aren't terrible. The production is fine. The performances are alright. The problem is the severe lack of creativity here. Every once in a while, you'll get a glimpse of what Pixies are capable of, but it just ends up being an incredibly dull listen.
Kanye West & XXXTENTACION - True Love
Does he just not care anymore?
The Black Keys - Dropout Boogie
Just about the definition of mediocre. But it's enjoyable and nice to have on in the background. I like the more bluesy style of this one, especially songs like Good Love and For The Love of Money. But what were they thinking with Your Team is Looking Good??? Far and away the worst song on here. Baffling that they decided to have it in the tracklist.
Oasis - (What's the Story) Morning Glory?
Really great songwriting here. Some classics like Wonderwall, Don't Look Back In Anger, Morning Glory, and Champagne Supernova really carry this thing. Unfortunately, I feel like the boomy and cluttered production really sucks the energy out of this thing. Not as bad as Be Here Now, of course, but it can drown out some of the details and get exhausting by the end.
Ween - The Mollusk
Psychedelic and hilarious at the same time.
Muse - Madness
Reserved and subdued until that final explosion at the end. Still a great track all these years later. And that guitar solo...
Muse - Follow Me
One of my least favorite Muse songs. Derivative and a product of its time. It already sounds outdated.
Muse - Stockholm Syndrome
Powerful, punchy, and transcendental. A classic.
Muse - Uprising
This has aged incredibly well. Just pure fun.
Muse - Knights Of Cydonia
Muse - Map Of The Problematique
Greatest song ever written imo.
Muse - The Resistance
Consistently underrated. Maybe if Guiding Light wasn't on here it would get the attention it deserves.
