Albums and Songs of 2010-2014 Poll - Lists Thread

Postby Jackson » Sat Feb 14, 2015 8:02 pm

Now that Dan is finished with the rundown of our favorite songs and albums of 2014, here is the voting thread for our favorites from the last 5 years, as promised.

All lists must be posted in the thread. I'll count up to 100 albums and 200 songs per list (with a minimum of 50 for each). EPs are eligible for the albums list (aka the "Burial rule").

The deadline is Friday, March 20. Happy listing!

Awesome. I'm so looking forward to going back and revisiting the last half decade.
I thought I might pick out a couple of albums from the period that hopefully people won't forget to listen to and judge highly! Real growers for me. Didn't think much of them at the time, now they're firmly established classics. For me, at least.

Robyn - Body Talk

Might win my #1 pick honestly, simply because every song is so bombastic and heavy and so so so well crafted. Robyn was so prolific in 2010, with the two Body Talks parts and then the final album, which took the best parts of both and added them together. It almost feels like the Immaculate Collection.

Nicolas Jaar - Space is Only Noise

An album which I'm revisiting because of the Darkside record from 2013. Hauntingly beautiful with the most peculiar vocals, but so captivating and so bass heavy. The epitome of an "atmosphere"-creating album.

Kendrick Lamar - Good Kid, Maad City

Listening to this album has made me near unable to appreciate Kanye West anymore. Which is strange as hell. But Kendrick's lyrical mastery and amazing rapping skills make GKMC transcendent. Top 5 for sure for me.

And a couple of songs, picked up from some Resident Advisor songs lists which I haven't been able to stop listening to:
Andres - New For U - link
Possibly the best dance song of the last 5 years? I can't stop listening to it, just because of that awesome strings sample.
Matthew Herbert - It's Only (DJ Koze Remix) - link
More "electronic" music that isn't just club music. It's so eerie and haunting and amazingly well crafted.

So you're NOT doing it by year?

That makes things a bit more difficult. I have a very clear favorite for albums ("Let England Shake"), but songs is basically a five-way tie between all the songs I picked those years ("Plans", "Days are Forgotten", "Bitter End", "Get Lucky", "A Little God in my Hands")

I do think I can cobble together a decent Top 100 on both counts, but let me dust off my EOY lists first.

I don't think anyone's ever claimed that Kanye is a master lyricist or an amazing rapper. For me it's just about the music itself and finding fitting lyrics to that. Kanye does that really well.

It's kind of like comparing Bob Dylan to Beatles in my opinion.

And I admit I'm a fan of Ye, maybe I should get an avatar pic to make that even more clear.

Edit: Okay so I got a profile picture, which features my two favorite people in music of all time. Also I think it's the greatest picture ever taken. I wish my name was YeezusRam cos those are my fav albums of the two artists (Beatles not counted), but unfortunately I can't predict the future.

Originally Plastic referred to Plastic Ono Band and a little bit to Plastic Beach I guess. Ram referred to Ram by Paul McCartney, and also really fortunately to RAM by Daft Punk. It's quite a coincidence, because RAM is like my 20th fav album of all time, but not created when I decided the username. After some online research Kanye was part of a song called Plastic, so I guess that's something.

Sorry for the OT :text-imsorry: :character-spamcan:

Edit: And I promise I will bring up Kanye less often from now on now that I have the avatar too, like mostly in the Yeezy thread.

Edit: If we're making recommendations in this thread, here are my unusual picks (ranked lower than 1500 and not overly hyped on this forum):

Africa Express - Africa Express Presents… Terry Riley’s in C Mali
M.I.A. - Matangi
Drake - Thank Me Later
Gil Scott-Heron & Jamie xx - We're New Here
Sigur Rós - Kveikur
Bob Dylan - Tempest
Future - Pluto
Lorde - Pure Heroine
Jimmy Cliff - Rebirth
Big K.R.I.T. - Cadillactica
Popcaan - Where We Come From
Vince Staples - Hell Can Wait (EP)
I feel like that

Okay, I was able to make a shortlist of 100 songs. And there were still a few songs that had to be cut.

Most of the usual suspets will be on there, but here are some out-of-the-ordinary picks you may see from me:

SONGS
Biffy Clyro-Biblical (2013)
British India-Anti-Gravity (2010)
Birds of Tokyo-Plans (2010)
Civil Twilight-Letters from the Sky (2010)
Fox-High Tide Rising (2013)
Incubus-Adolescents (2011)
National-Exile (Vilify) (2011)
Veer Union-Bitter End (2012)

ALBUMS
Birds of Tokyo-[self-titled] (2010)
Cage the Elephant-Thank you Happy Birthday (2011)
Kasabian-Velociraptor! (2011)
Nine Inch Nails-Hesitation Marks (2013)
Pearl Jam-Lightning Bolt (2013)
Veer Union-Divide the Blackened Sky (2012)


And I had to recheck myself a lot. I wasn't on here until about 2010, so a lot of songs I thought were from then were actually 2009. Still looking very forward though.

2011 is very clearly the dominant year. A lot of my all-time favorites come here. Including two albums in the Top 40.

I don't think anyone's ever claimed that Kanye is a master lyricist or an amazing rapper. For me it's just about the music itself and finding fitting lyrics to that. Kanye does that really well.

It's kind of like comparing Bob Dylan to Beatles in my opinion.

And I admit I'm a fan of Ye, maybe I should get an avatar pic to make that even more clear.

Edit: Okay so I got a profile picture, which features my two favorite people in music of all time. Also I think it's the greatest picture ever taken. I wish my name was YeezusRam cos those are my fav albums of the two artists (Beatles not counted), but unfortunately I can't predict the future.


Oh don't get me wrong, kanye is one of my top 5 artists of all time, alongside names like Dylan, Springsteen and Zappa. I'm sure this is just a phase, but I'm really liking kendrick's sparse production, which is kinda antithetical to Kanye's sound. On another day though, Kanye's sound is champion.

Kan-Jes-West-Us's talent is more production talent than rapping talent. He's great at picking samples and blending them seamlessly for the song. Also he's great at marketing. Really, really great at marketing. He knows that having a lot of stunts keep you constantly in the news keeps you in the mind of consumer and critic alike.

He's an okay lyricist. He's really good at crafting lyrics to express the sentiment "I am great, I am great, I am great."

Bootsy, while I also disagree with the sentiments that Jirin has expressed, it's preferable on this board to word your disagreement a little more...eloquently. Next time try and explain why you believe Jirin is wrong, and avoid argumentative statements like "what is this crap" and "this is pretty lame man". If all follow these rules we can continue to enjoy a forum renowned for its civil discussions.

Wow, a whole half decade, huh? It seems just like yesterday we were taking stock of the best albums of 2000 - 2009, launching many discussions on the critical gems of that time period. Ah, "Kid A"!, "Funeral"!, "Is This It"!, "Illinois"!, "Sound of Silver"!, "Yankee Hotel Foxtrot"!, "Merriweather Post Pavilion"!, and so many others! Well lady and gentlemen here we are 5 years later, ready to take stock of a new group of records.

2010 was the first year that I really, really got involved with following new releases. In the couple of years preceding 2010 I had a somewhat lackadaisical approach to new releases, checking out a couple every now and then, but never listening to more than a dozen or so a year. But 2010 was different. And so was 2011. And so was the rest of the half decade, as I listened to well over 200 different albums, checking out releases from acts high and low profile, acts that were critical darlings, and acts that flew under the critic's radar. And so when I sat down to finally compile a list of my 100 favorite albums from the past 5 years I was certain that due to my intense devotion to the latest releases I would end up with quite the unique list.

As you can see, that hasn't happened. But I hope that there's some relatively obscure albums in here that someone might discover because of this list. If not, then oh well. Here we go...

It's an alright song, I don't hate it like others do. It failed to make my top 50 for 2011, which meant that it's chances of appearing on my top 100 of the half decade were zero. It's a song that wouldn't make me change the station if it ever came on the radio, but I'm not a huge fan or anything.

I don't think these should be eligible. What do others think? The Smile Sessions is a particularly big yes-or-no decision as it might be my #1 for this period were it eligible. Just doesn't feel right matching it up with these contemporary albums though.

Glad to see that you voted for this - it's a nice reminder for me to go back and listen to it. I remember I was enchanted by the track "La Femme" upon seeing it pop up on some EOY 2013 lists around here.

I put "The SMiLE Sessions" on my list as well. My reasoning is that since it's included on AM, it's eligible by Henrik's standards, which should be good enough for a forum poll. We're already being liberal and including EP's, why not include "The SMiLE Sessions"?

Valleys of Neptune is also not a compilation.

That's why I am including it.

I don't know if anyone else feels this way, but putting this list together is causing some major shakeups in my All-

No major shakeups yet, but I have reconsidered a lot of the all time positions. It just looks different to rank the albums against others from their decade than ranking against others from all time.
Album of the Year: Kendrick Lamar - DAMN.
Song of the Year: Frank Ocean - Chanel

PlasticRam, I don't disagree with your top two (after all, both albums are fantastic, although Yeezus is "only" my #3 of 2013 behind Reflektor and RAM), but I would be interested in hearing your rationale for putting Yeezus ahead of MBDTF, which is my fav Kanye album. I'm always interested in understanding other perceptions of music, and I admit I'm a bit confused there. :)

I feel like MBDTF is perfection, but Yeezus is pushing boundaries. I'm sorry I don't know how to explain any longer than that. I mean like with MBDTF I feel like he tried to make perfect and succeeded and with Yeezus he tried to push boundaries even at the cost of perfection. I respect the latter slightly more.

I put 101 for 2 reasons. First I listened to far too much PC music songs not to put anything from them, 2nd because the Scott Pilgrim soundtrack only has 4 original songs so I didn't know if it should be eligible.

Curious to see how Treats, Sir Luscious Left Foot and The Archandroid hold up... I still like them but I don't feel like they aged that well.

I don't like how much Rick Rubin reduced that song. He did fine with the other songs on the album though.

Interestingly enough PlasticRam, although I love "Yeezus", my least favorite song off of it would probably be "I'm In It". My favorite? "Black Skinhead" by a mile.

A large reason why I like I'm in It so much is Assassin's part.

And these were actually on the shortlist. Either I just couldn't make room, or they just didn't feel right.

It's kinda nice to see someone who likes similar music as I.

A large reason why I like I'm in It so much is Assassin's part.


That part is good, and he definitely gives the song a certain crazed energy. I just think that pretty much every other song is more engaging. After I've had some time to think about it, "I Am a God" might be my least favorite, although the lyrics are hilarious (intentionally so I might add).
