I haven't gotten around to listening to Perfume Genius' new album yet, it's on my to-do list though. As far as AOTY, I'm not really sure. Syro is definitely a runner up, but I can't make up my mind,
>>50304476
I always confuse the two myself
>>50304512
Not that person but it's Cymbals Eat Guitars - LOSE, 'indie' rock album from 2014. It's pretty good, I'd say check it out if you like the genre, idk if it's AOTY material though.

Aphex Twin - Syro
Thom Yorke - TMB

>>50308048
Only a few of the songs are really synth heavy. Most are just piano based which really isn't 80's sounding but I won't argue its amazingly original. I guess Grid starts off kinda generic but halfway through it gets more dynamic.

Didn't hold up to multiple listens for me. Two Weeks is beautiful though. I'm definitely looking forward to more from her.

>>50309847
did you actually expect weezer to use decent album art though? like after all these years maaaaaaan
>>
>>50309809
>is the rest of their material worth checking out?
Absolutely, The Dance of the moon and the sun is considered essential from them. I think it's a far superior album.

From there you can explore the rest of their discography too, it's fairly consistent in terms of quality.
>>
>>50309886
Yeah I know. Still though, new low for them.
>>
>>50305896
ok so listening to this now and wow really? Just sounds like average electropop with her vocals on top of it.

this is coming from someone who's really liked her work previously. Conatus is GOAT art pop imo

>>50308062

Apply yourself. This is weak man. You're not gonna rile up anyone's jimmies.
>>
>>50305163
Nobody really knows.

People are obsessively posting how good it is, which is making people obsessively post how good it is, which is making obsessively post how good it is.

Personally, I thought it was meh. Some really great songs, but a lot of useless filler. The high points of the album are really high, probably the best they've had in years, but the album as a whole falls flat.
>>
>>50309765
>Andrew Bird
I still don't know how I feel about that album. As an Andrew Bird album, it's weak. It's just not up to his caliber of stuff. But his caliber of stuff is so damn high that it's hard to objectively rank the album against other albums by other artists.
>>
>>50311016
True, but it's a cover album, and any cover album that's consistently better than the original songs is pretty damn good at fulfilling its goal. Relative to his other albums it's weak, but relative to other cover albums it's great, so I'd say it averages out to being, well, where I put it in that chart.

4.5/10, it's just arcade fire channeled through one histrionic faggot. also Grid is a Suicide ripoff
>>50304210
can't rate it yet, but it's not bad. hate the vocals, but love the piano, and the country does workout sometimes

7.5/10, not their best, but intruders is GOAT

3.5/10, emo revival IM GETTING BETTER NOW Bs. The type of shit killing the genre

8/10, great work by arca (again) and she's legitimately talented

2.5/10, don't even need to say anything because Kozelek's criticism was spot-on

8.5/10, album most likely to become a classic from this year. He's one of the only people who can get away with an album like this
