Re: Idea for game: Albums World Cup

The competition is pretty stiff so far but I’m going to stump for the Idler Wheel by Fiona Apple.

Re: Kids See Ghosts (Kanye West & Kid Cudi)

I agree! I don’t think I’m at the point where I love it but I feel like it’s more successful than Ye in being ambitious and fun. Hopefully this is a good sign for the new Nas album?

With that said: not sure what the hell Kanye was doing on that first song.

Songs: 5 | Portishead | Dummy 8 | Green Day | Dookie Don't think there are songs by those names. Hoping the first one is actually for Roads ! 11 | Jeff Buckley | Grace Makes me doubt whether that one is actually for Grace or for another song on the album. Hoping it is for Grace indeed though, song ...

Re: Kanye West - Ye

Well, I guess luckily it's pretty short. I've been able to listen to this a couple times today, it's really frustrating that I can admire some of the themes he's working towards here while overall still finding it really clumsy and cringe-inducing. Admittedly this grew on me a little more the second...

Re: Rank the Tracks: Frank Ocean's Channel Orange

I know this thread is ancient now but obviously by my name I’m a pretty big fan of Frank. I can’t easily recall another album that has resonated with me the way channel ORANGE has. Almost 6 full years since this dropped and I still come back to this pretty regularly, I honestly cherish most of these...

Re: Albums of 2018

Anyone else listen to or care about Ashley Monroe's new album Sparrow? I found it surprisingly engaging (for the first half at least) and the melodies are incredibly sticky on a lot of these songs. I'd definitely give it a shot if you're mildly interested in modern country that doesn't sound grating...
