2013 In Music

Recommended Posts

The whole Samsung deal gives me a queasy feeling and I'm a little bored of hearing Jay-Z tell us how rich and awesome Jay-Z is. At least Kanye's ego is interesting.

I can understand that. The album strays a bit from that though, it's less about how awesome Jay-Z is, at least, not as much. The music is great at the very least. The only eye-roller is a song he does with Beyonce which is basically them saying to each other "You're awesome, no you're awesome, no you're awesome" but whatever. The rest is worth it.

Did they learn nothing from this?

Sistrionix by Deap Vally is one of the best rock albums of the year. They're a female duo that fall somewhere in between the blues-rock purism of the Black Keys and the jagged hard rock of the White Stripes. And Lindsey Troy can wail.

Jay-Z's new album "Magna Carta Holy Grail" is fantastic. Better than "The Blueprint 3" for sure.

Finally got to hear this, but couldn't get through it. The beats are fantastic, but after 7 or 8 songs where Jay reiterates his greatness, the lyrics are just too tiresome.

Yea, I can understand that. That's been the number one complaint about the album.

Deafheaven's "Sunbather" is a revelation. It's like a whole new genre of music.

Imagine Kevin Shields joined Explosions In The Sky and they collectively decided to start playing metal. That's what this is, it's incredible. Top 10 album of 2013 so far.
