    Ah you're right, switch Spiritualized with Grimes and give her an unfair advantage of being in the top 5 and we are getting there.

    Oh and Julia Holter can switch with the second Death Grips.album lol

    Grizzly Bear will get #11 so they can put one Death Grips album in the 10-20 range and the other in top 10.

    Their top five "songs of the year" are horrible picks.

    Why does "Myth" by Beach House sound so familar, is it a cover?

    Here's my breakdown of the top 5 singles:
    1. It's good, but not number one good. I enjoyed her interview on XMU a couple months back.
    2. I liked the way that "Pyrimads" sits on the album, but I think that "Thinking About You" is better song on it's own. The video is awesome.
    3. Seriously - WTF is with this Usher shit?
    4. *rolls eyes*
    5. Japandroids aren't very bad, but they aren't very good either.

    With that being said, I do appreciate their list. There are some good picks like, "Only Going Backwards" and "Wet Blanket". Does anyone have a playlist that I can DL?

    Usher's Climax wouldn't be relevant without Diplo behind it.

    Their year end quote list is full of gems: http://pitchfork.com/features/staff-...n-quotes-2012/

    Including this from Beach House:

    Writing about us, people have said: "Do we need another album by this band?" What the fuck is that? That only matters if you're just listening to sound. It's this pathetic era we're in where people are like, "I'm done with them, I need a new sound; I'm a baby, I need something every five minutes." A lot of people listening to music now don't listen to the songs at all. They just go, "Good tones…" and that's it. But we're obsessed with songs. Sometimes, I feel like people aren't listening to our songs, they're just listening to the sound.

    Nope. Kendrick and Frank are #1 and #2. It's a toss up between which is which.

    Pretty damn close.

    Their albums list seems really lackluster this year, even if I like a ton of stuff on it. It's more about what's not there, which I guess is stuff that's typically to the sidelines of what they cover anyway. I think their songs list this year is a bit more solid as a whole.

    And I don't know why Beach House get shit for making the same album over and over again when plenty of well respected bands do the same fucking thing. I wouldn't put Bloom in my top 10 or 20, but it's as solid as anything they've done with some of the best songs of their career.

    I guess for me it's that I've never been impressed by Beach House as a whole. They are nice on the surface but the songs never stick with me whatsoever. I feel like I could start humming the melody from one song and not even realize that I'd transitioned to another. Counter that to the Ramones, for example, who accurately meet the description of making the same album four times, but each one was chock full of classic tunes that could actually be differentiated. A formula is great if you do it well, but for me Beach House is exactly what they bitch about in that quote you had on the last page: all surface with not enough song to back it up.
