AMF EOY Best Albums & Songs of 2016 -- List Thread

Postby notbrianeno » Thu Jan 05, 2017 1:12 am

Hello all!

I have volunteered to host this years EOY poll, something I have wanted to do for a very long time. In the following thread, please post your favorite songs and albums of 2016. The formula used will be (50*(1+8))/(position+8).

Song Eligibility:

-Any song released within the calendar year either as a single or a track from an album.

-High-profile re-releases, provided the song did not make a previous countdown (e.g., "Blackstar", despite being on an album this year, made 2015's EOY and is thus ineligible here)

-2015 singles from 2016 albums are fair game, provided they follow the above rule.

Album Eligibility:

-Albums released within the 2016 calendar year.

-Any major re-release of a previously unacclaimed album

-Burial Clause: EPs count as albums.

10 songs or albums are minimum to compete in the poll, and a maximum of 50 songs or albums will be counted. However, feel free to include more than that if you feel inclined to give attention to some honorable mentions. Commentary is encouraged, and will be utilized in the rollout of results.

Deadline to submit lists is by the end of January 31st

Happy Voting!

That's something that confuses me. We're counting it as 2001 in the spreadsheet for the AM list, but this is a new recording, and critics didn't really start talking about it until this one. The two versions have such a distinctly different feel (and even context) that it seems weird to consider them the same song, even if they essentially are. To me, the two versions are distinct entities. I would argue against considering the 2001 and 2016 as the same thing, both on acclaimed music's actual list and our forum. The 2001 version is a song of anxious hope, while the new one has an air of resigned sadness. Even the lead instrument changes (as does the overall atmosphere and depth of sound), and Thom Yorke's vocals are transformed. It's essentially an example of a band covering one of their earlier songs in a new style with a different meaning.


Like, my love for True Love Waits (2016) wouldn't have happened sooner if I paid more attention to the 2001 version. The 2001 version is an interesting early take that lacks the emotional resonance of the new version. I can't listen to these songs back to back and hear the same song; there's obvious similarities, but entire elements have shifted.

True. You could make this case to Henrik so it could be 2016 in the new update.

From what I understand the band themselves do not consider the 2001 live version to be finished/official; Nigel Godrich has gone on record calling the 2001 TLW "that shitty live version". For the purposes of this poll, I'll be including 2016 "True Love Waits" as eligible, unless any other forum members have any objections.

Not hosting. But by the "Blackstar" clause of not making a previous EOY, I say it should be.

Notes:
A few months back I was convinced Lemonade would be my number one, but Only grew on me. A few more weeks and A Seat at the Table might pass Lemonade too. Beyonce would still get my vote for Artist of the year though.
I can't handle listening to Skeleton Tree again, so I don't think listing it would be representative of my tastes. I have like feelings about Black Star, except the title track which I love and would be on my songs list if not for it being ineligible this year.
I'm 99% sure that Earl Sweatshirt is the best rapper alive when he wants to be.

BleuPanda wrote:That's something that confuses me. We're counting it as 2001 in the spreadsheet for the AM list, but this is a new recording, and critics didn't really start talking about it until this one. The two versions have such a distinctly different feel (and even context) that it seems weird to consider them the same song, even if they essentially are. To me, the two versions are distinct entities. I would argue against considering the 2001 and 2016 as the same thing, both on acclaimed music's actual list and our forum. The 2001 version is a song of anxious hope, while the new one has an air of resigned sadness. Even the lead instrument changes (as does the overall atmosphere and depth of sound), and Thom Yorke's vocals are transformed. It's essentially an example of a band covering one of their earlier songs in a new style with a different meaning.


Like, my love for True Love Waits (2016) wouldn't have happened sooner if I paid more attention to the 2001 version. The 2001 version is an interesting early take that lacks the emotional resonance of the new version. I can't listen to these songs back to back and hear the same song; there's obvious similarities, but entire elements have shifted.


The main reason I put it as 2001 in the spreadsheet is because the "shitty live version" is already on the list of songs to be added. To be honest, I've hardly listened to either version, so I can't say just how different they are.

"True Love Waits" should definitely be eligible for this poll, as long as it specifically refers to the studio version.

Thanks notbrianeno!

My list is not ready, but I'm pretty sure that Kate Tempest's "Tunnel Vision" will be my #1 song.

Postby prosecutorgodot » Fri Jan 06, 2017 6:14 am

Arigatou, notbrianeno!

I'm first to do descriptions!

Albums:
15. Green Day - Revolution Radio
My all-time favorite band makes a comeback. It's not a great album, because I wish the lyrics and subject material were more vivid and direct, and they should have handed production off to somebody else, but Green Day stick with their guns, and craft some catchy pop tunes that I enjoy.

14. Childish Gambino - Awaken, My Love!
This album expertly brings back the sounds of 60s and 70s soul and funk (Sly and the Family Stone is the first thing that comes to mind), but stays fresh and exciting.

13. Noname - Telefone
Every music lover knows that one person that thinks hip-hop is violent, angry non-music. This album crushes all of those negative stereotypes. Over smooth, peaceful, and melodic sounds, Noname raps about her average, everyday life. It is quite refreshing, and I personally have never heard anything like this before.

12. Kero Kero Bonito - Bonito Generation
This album proves that you can make great electropop music in 2016. It's danceable, it's catchy, it's fun. It also has an overwhelming sense of cuteness to it.

11. Poppy - 3:36 (Music to Sleep To)
Poppy is an art experiment masterminded by Titanic Sinclair, who usually makes strange videos on YouTube. I love this album because its aim is really cool: to help you sleep. He worked with a professor on this album, to create an organic method to help you sleep, and I think he succeeds. Unsurprisingly, the music is ambient.

10. Santana - Santana IV
This is Santana's reunion album, 40 years in the making, but it sounds like they never broke up. Great instrumentals and performances, like the Latin rock band you know and love. It calls back to Santana's early stuff, but it's different enough that it doesn't ruin your enjoyment. However, the album is bloated, and there are a couple of features from Ronald Isley that sound out of place.

9. ScHoolboy Q - Blank Face LP
There are some creative ideas on this album, enlarging the space that gangsta rap can inhabit.

8. Danny Brown - Atrocity Exhibition
Danny Brown's choice of sounds and how he melds with them, are completely new. Listen in awe.

7. A Tribe Called Quest - We Got it From Here... Thank You for Your Service
Just a really well-made hip-hop album, and another farewell album to add to the stack this year.

6. Radiohead - A Moon-Shaped Pool
The five guys return with a sad, depressing album that I like a lot.

5. Death Grips - Bottomless Pit
The dudes do it again! Brilliant experimental hip-hop mixed with guitars to make modern-age punk that will mix your senses in a blender until it's mush.

4. Norah Jones - Day Breaks
Norah Jones goes back to the piano-based sound of her first album. This album exemplifies why I love Norah so much. She is a bridge between modern adult-contemporary pop, and all of the old genres of music before 1960: jazz, blues, folk, soul and country.

3. Kendrick Lamar - untitled. unmastered.
Three years ago this guy gave me hope in modern music, and this is just another great album to add to his now-illustrious catalog. I think he does even more justice to the soul sound than even Childish Gambino, and adds jazz and of course hip-hop to make pure musical paradise. Extremely cohesive album.

2. David Bowie - Blackstar
His final album. He takes ideas from Kendrick Lamar, Lou Reed, etc. to make a jazzy art-rock record. I do not think this is a perfect record. There are immense towering highs, and some just okay-good parts. What seals the deal for me is the themes of death and mortality on the album. Not only that, but the idea of him making this album, writing these lyrics, and singing these words, all while carrying the weight of his own imminent death, are so tragically beautiful.

1. Beyonce - Lemonade
This is my favorite album of the year for two reasons: one, I love pop, it has always been my favorite genre, and this album is full of great pop songs; two, the album is extremely cohesive (but not in terms of sound, because Beyonce surfs a variety of genres over the course of the record, each done very well). The cohesion comes from an extremely well-realized storyline. The narrative strings the first 11 tracks together better than any other album I can think of. (The last track "Formation" sits outside of the narrative, but if you think about the more political side of the album, then it fits right in.) The story makes me feel every possible emotion, each time I listen to the album.

I have been gone for a long time and mostly listening to older material so I'm mostly viewing this as a chance to "catch up" on last year's tunes.

I may put together a song list after I've had a chance to sample what's on your collective lists and do some Spotify listening I've been meaning to get around to.

I'll be trying to assemble an EOY list for the first time. In the meantime, I'm doing some catch up, and I want to warmly recommend an album that Andre and Setherex discussed in another topic earlier this year, Nachtlicht by Dutch singer Eefje de Visser. I immediately fell in love with it on first listen, and my only regret is the fact that I don't understand her lyrics (Google Translate gave me an idea, and they look like elegant melancholic lyrics). It's very beautiful pop-folk singing-songwriting, and I hardly see it outside my top 3 of the year when my list will be finished.

I hate double posts but I can't resist making another recommendation that I'm discovering right now: the first self-titled album by Tuareg band Imarhan. I think I've never listened such catchy African music since Fela Kuti. I've not decided yet its rank, but it will surely be in my top 10, maybe top 5.

notbrianeno, I've got a not-so-important formal question. I'm probably going to put the soundtracks to Stranger Things and Mr. Robot into my top, which were both released on albums in two volumes; I wanted to know if I could mention in my list that my vote for either of these counted as a combined entry for the two volumes of each soundtrack. If not, I will just add the first volume of each in my list and mention in a comment that it must be perceived as a combined vote for both volumes, because I can't afford to allow four spots in my top 50 to these soundtracks, while I'm already having trouble narrowing it down to the required 50. I'm annoyed enough that La La Land is probably going to take two spots by itself, for the soundtrack and the score... :D

Not a problem Pierre, from what I can tell, both releases of each soundtrack were composed as part of the same work. Looking forward to your list!

Thank you! My list is unfortunately not ready yet, I still have some catch-up to do... Next week as the soonest, but I can't promise anything :?
