So...I'm looking at another "best of 2012" list; just to see if I missed anything worth checking out. This particular one, featured a "worst of" too. Out of curiosity, I take a peek...and I notice Matthew Friedberger's Matricidal Sons Of Bitches. It's not the first time I had seen it, on such a list by the way.

Now, I love The Fiery Furnaces...so I did notice the bad mention. I haven't listened to it, but it has 45 tracks and is said to be "inspired by the low-budget films made by smaller Hollywood studios between the 1920s and the 1950s"; uh...so I have no trouble believing the pans, lol. What it got me thinking though was "I didn't even know these guys did any solo stuff". Eleanor fairs better with this, I imagine...

Wow, it's gotten so much quicker/easier to upload photos since the forum update. Maybe it'll inspire me to actually start listing some stuff every now and then. cool.gif

Black Star



I'll go out on a limb and say this is one of the best hip-hop albums of all time.

Interesting; what would you consider some of the others? Public Enemy's It Takes A Nation Of Millions...? De La Soul's 3 Feet High and Rising? A Tribe Called Quest's The Low End Theory?

Those are well-regarded of course, but I suspect his list will go a little deeper and veer more left-of-center. But we shall see.

That's why I asked. It's not my genre; so I know the obvious choices. I also have my favs, but not sure how well they rank with "purists" (like Paul's Boutique), and I really do like the new "fusion"...like Kendrick Lamar's release.

Actually, I wouldn't say hip-hop is necessarily one of "my" genres either. I dabble. I would agree that I tend to listen more to what is considered "indie" or "underground" hip-hop but I definitely have a great appreciation for some of the heavy hitters. Paul's Boutique would definitely be on my list as well as any of the Public Enemy albums.

Here are some others (some newer, some older).

Gang Starr-Moment of Truth
Cypress Hill-Cypress Hill
P.O.S. Ipecac Neat
Atmosphere-Overcast!
Digable Planets-Blowout Comb (Reachin' is fabulous but I enjoy this darker/heavier album more)
N.W.A- Straight Outta Compton
Wyclef Jean-Carnival
Wu-Tang Clan-Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)
The Beatnuts-The Beatnuts

Sims-Bad Time Zoo



Continuing the hip-hop theme.....

A more modern take on 60's/70's French Pop, with some cool production:



I prefer this one over If You're Feeling Sinister. More polished and more varied though less uniquely B&S, I suppose:



Oh, forgot to list this one from the weekend (Cursive - Mama, I'm Swollen):

Bon Iver - Bon Iver
post #6238 of 11209
This ones relatively new to my ears. I know some fans consider it their masterwork but nothing has really grabbed me yet, unlike some of their other albums. But this one is supposedly one of those denser, "takes longer to fully digest and appreciate" type of releases...





Peculiarly inscrutable genius? Maybe so...
