    I like Beck. And Morning Phase is not a bad album. But is it one of the year's best? I am not seeing it at all.

    I like Morning Phase enough. It's a pretty record but the songs don't linger with me and even drag to a place that can become rather boring at times. Definitely not a top 10 or even top 20, but not a bad record.

    A lot of similar favorites...Wig Out At Jagbags in particular has surprised me, just as Mirror Traffic did a few years back, as something I was pretty meh on the first couple of listens but then started falling in love with. Now Chartjunk and J Smoov would both rate as top 25 tracks on the year for me.

    I listened to that album after being blown away when you added that track to the collaborative playlist. That album is fantastic. Brings to mind Shellac and Double Dagger. Totally on board.

    I see they're still using the same song-naming approach.

    I had no idea they were still around. Will definitely be giving that one a spin.

    If you like Zentropy, you'd probably enjoy Quarterbacks. They're in the same universe (tour mates, Double Double Whammy label etc) as Frankie Cosmos and make similar music. It goes acoustic where Frankie goes electric, but I love it. The lyrics are great too. http://quarterbacks.bandcamp.com/

    Same! Have you checked out Posse's "Soft Opening" yet? Not Beat Happening-esque or anything, but it's one of my favorite releases this year and I think you'd really dig it.

    I don't know if you meant to imply your listening had fallen off by using the past tense, but that's the exact relationship I've had with the album: haven't revisited it much but can't really justify any album being better.

    Richard D. James and Steve Albini both disagree with that.

    For that matter, so does Ought, and probably White Lung and Pallbearer.

    All artists/genres I don't usually react positively to. Although I expect Ought and RDJ will be in my top albums after a few more listens.

    Updated (page 1). I now have seven albums on my list. I've heard a lot of new music this year... just not a lot of recorded new music.
