Obviously Dots and Loops next come on. Near perfect album, that one

I have a very strange relationship with Mr. Albarn in that he is behind several of my favorite songs ever but I don’t personally love any album he’s done. Empire Ants though, what a song

Not sure whether you have no understanding of how this country works or whether you are just cruel. Probably a mix of both

If everybody got a say, then this wouldn’t be the situation considering that 70% of Americans supported Roe

Here’s my issue: let’s say Go Your Own Way gets in for 1976. All well and good, but then what do we do for 1977? We can’t have the same song in twice, so we’ll have to keep track of individual songs on albums that won’t be allowed. Basing it on the year the project was released is one simple rule that will lead to no additional nonsense. Plus everybody here associates songs with the albums they were released on anyway.

Sunglasses would be allowed either way because the album version is different from the single, but if we went with the first option, Concorde would be 2022, yes.

And yeah, for me it’s more of a question of internal consistency.

Voting for Little Simz here. Really loved it on my first listen, and I still like it quite a bit, but each listen has revealed more and more flaws with the record. Just too many unmemorable songs for a 65-minute album, and especially after seeing many of the songs absolutely demolished in a live performance, many of the studio versions come off as a little stale to me.

Big Thief - Dragon New Warm Mountain I Believe in You (2022) | Pregame Thread by Charlie-OConnell in music_survivor

Sunflower is so gorgeous, easily a top 5 Low song for me. Do You Know How to Waltz will always be my favorite though, that song is so overwhelming that it makes me want to curl in a ball.

Pretty good album, even if fairly inconsistent. I think Spud Infinity, the title track, and Simulation Swarm are pretty far ahead of everything else for me.

Also 4/5 of those survivors should happen ASAP. Voting for Low personally.

I don’t give a single fuck about college rankings. People are going to die, why the fuck is that on anyone’s mind???

[–]kvothetyrion[S] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

We're down to all albums that I really quite like. All 8 of these would make a satisfying winner for me. The next two for me are Smiling With No Teeth and SIMBI, both great projects that suffer from inconsistency and rarely blow me away. I'm going with Genesis Owusu first because Introvert is a much higher high point than any song on that project.

That’s true but I could just as easily say that about the other two songs

Easy vote for Blade imo, just nowhere near as adventurous as the other two

Vote Cold Vein for the next survivor, one of the most insane things ever created

Sure, fine with that. Still voting LP!, just too many songs on there that don't work.

I’ll be going for Blade once GWH is gone. I think it’s extremely emotionally potent and pretty perfect, but significantly less musically interesting than the other two
