Re: Moderately Acclaimed Albums 2018 - Round 1.9

Sleater-Kinney - The Woods vs. The Notwist - Neon Golden
I thoroughly enjoy both of these albums. Not a hard choice though.

The Beach Boys - Friends vs. Camel - Mirage
I didn't like the Camel album as much as I was expecting to, but it's still better than the Beach Boys offering

Much like "Sinnerman," I had higher expectations for "Strange Fruit." I thought it has an outside shot at #1. That was based on me just noticing it was highly placed on a lot of lists, and I didn't take into account that it was on less lists.

By definition, a decade is *any* period of 10 years. So unless they call their list "the best songs of the 202nd decade" they have done nothing wrong.

We don't label decades the way we label centuries, so this isn't really much of an issue.
