    I figured I was going to ignore any list ranking Cut Copy that highly, but let us know what you find that's good from it. What's Kisses like?

    I pulled up YouTube and listened to a couple songs from each artist I hadn't heard. Every artist I checked out immediately grabbed my attention.

    The albums I've listened to so far...
    Teen Daze-ambient electronic music which I want to say in the realm of 'chill wave' but cleaner production
    Kisses-super mellow synth pop with early 90s drum machine
    Emancipator-electronic album which I think was probably heavily influenced by Junkie XL or and Thievery Corporation without the heavy world music aspect

    Downloaded the album based on a song or two I checked out on YouTube...
    Airhead
    Young Fathers (the songs I checked out reminded me of grime ((UK rap genre)) meets TV on the Radio)
    Work Drugs
    St. Lucia
    Body Language.

    Teen Daze is awesome. I think glacier is their best album. Kisses is a super sick band. I'm planning on seeing them next month in San Diego. If you like the music from this list, you should also check out the band Sun Glitters. Their new album Everything Could Be Fine is sooo good

    I don't get how indie-minded people don't all have the new Mikal Cronin ranked near the top of their lists. Thing was one of the few highlights of the catchy, guitar-led world this year.

    What, saying that if someone ranked an album that I found to be terribly mediocre so highly that I feel fine in personally disregarding their rankings is not truth? It's a boring album, and if it winds up in a top 10 it indicates to me that the person is listening from a very different perspective than me and that I have very little to gain from pursuing things on their list that I don't recognize otherwise.

    Your statement is pointless, quite literally.

    I'm seeing The Strokes latest album on several lists in here. Was it really that good? I heard the first single, One Way Trigger, and thought it was absolutely terrible. Was the rest of the album that much better?

    Interestingly enough, this was the album that got me into Nick Cave. I had never really been exposed to his music before Coachella, and during my research this was the first one that really clicked with me. It isn't high on my list, but I had to at least give it a nod for being the album that made him click for me.

    You're engaging in the same ignorant trolling that you berated me for in the past, or you are somehow incapable of seeing that someone can like things that you dislike as well as things that you enjoy.

    Can you understand that, if something that I find that bland is ranked so highly, it's indicative of the fact that the person is not on my wavelength? TheKlein likes some things I like, but based on the top of his list I can fairly justify for myself that I will find little of interest in anything I'd not heard there. I think I've made it abundantly clear where my listening focus has been recently, and shit like mediocre-retread Cut Copy is far from something I care for. Others enjoyment of it doesn't affect me whatsoever, but holding it in that high regard is a pretty clear indication that we're not at the same place. Same with the new Arcade Fire.

    Or you can keep taking my statements specifically asking someone who'd found enjoyable albums off such a list what they'd heard and what it was like as an indication that I'm a) a troll hell-bent on destroying the good name of Cut Copy or 2) incapable of finding any entertainment from those who differ with me. Except, you know, I was asking for potential recommendations with that caveat.

    There was hope for this record, but since they put practically 0 effort in promoting it and didn't tour, the exposure was just not there, so it will go down as a forgotten album.

    "One Way Trigger" was the nadir for me; there are a couple of really good songs on it, and many more unremarkable or bad songs. Some like it more than Angles, but it is their career worst to my ears. I don't fully understand why they are still a band at this point. By all accounts, it doesn't seem to be fun or particularly invigorating for any of them.

    It's not an awful album, but it seems weird that it's ending up on year-end lists.

    These lists are good stuff, guys. I've listened to maybe 6 albums released this year, these will help me start my 2013 listening.

    It never occurred to me that liking Push the Sky Away would make someone think they're cultured. Interesting.

    I will likely end up posting a list but my heart is not in it. There are a lot of songs I've loved but I've spent so little time with albums that my rankings will mean even less than they usually do. I also have several huge lists of 2013 albums to hear for the first time/get to know/reacquaint myself with but I have little drive to listen to them.

    Push the Sky Away will be very high on my list. It was my introduction to Nick Cave and I quickly found the Grinderman material which I love even more. The world of music is better for having Nick Cave in it. The Grinderman set at Coachella this year was one of the best sets i've ever seen at Coachella. Push the Sky Away is beautiful and even start to finish in my opinion. It will be in my top 3.

    Ok, so the Work Drugs album doesn't do it for me. The first couple songs on the album are fun with really bad lyrics, which are the ones I heard from YouTube, but the rest of the album is so boring and the lyrics are so cheesy I can't get into it.
