Re: EOY 2016 Albums Spreadsheet Updates

Thanks Harold. Been looking forward to this going up and will be checking back often over the next few months. Early observation: no love for School of Seven Bells so far. I know it released early in the year but I'm sad to see it be overlooked thus far.

Re: EOY 2015 - Rolling Stone (USA)

I believe not all 80s are created equal. I think this is due to some sites/sources being looser with their ratings. At some sites 80 is an average score whereas others 80 is higher than normal so they compare average scores between sources and curve it accordingly.

Re: EOY 2015 - Rolling Stone (USA)

I'd guess it would be due to it being a covers album but they've got a Broadway soundtrack in top 10 so who knows?

Re: EOY 2015- NME (UK)

Thought they were safe after the first day's list didn't contain my favorites for the year. Well this second update contained pretty much all of them so not much left for me in top 10. I figure Jamie xx and Kendrick Lamar will both be there but prefer Father John Misty, Courtney Barnett, Sleater-Kin...

Re: EOY 2015 - Mojo (UK)

I'm amused by this list because looking back at the albums I tracked during the year they pretty much gave 4/5 to almost everything. In 27 out of 33 albums I tracked which they scored they gave 4/5. Appropriately Julia Holter did have 5/5 and so did Sleater-Kinney. Courtney Barnett who charted EOY h...

I don't think so. SNF has a majority of new songs, and those are the most "central" songs as well.

Re: Concerts you have coming up

I enjoyed his show more than I expected to this year at Bonnaroo but he closed his show awkwardly with time still scheduled to play so was left with kind of an odd taste especially given the fact that he was the final artist to close the entire weekend out.
