Eh. Like, I might too, but I don't recall it being that good. Definitely not her best music, and I'm mixed on the costume/ambience thing, but it's certainly not a bad record. I figured Sophie would take their #1. I hadn't even a clue Suede released anything this year until I scrolled to the bottom.

And thanks for the list Skinny. Gotta admit, I gave this a listen last week and was bored to death for 80% of it. Figured it'd be along this lines of a live-version Madlib, but everything seemed so unsubstantial, repetitive and thin. Felt like it didn't need to be anything over 30-min long. Wanna share some insight? Think Perhaps it's better in small doses?

Can't argue with the fact that it's repetitive, though I find repetition strangely comforting. Whilst not revolutionary, I think the percussion is uniformly great - skittering, dense, propulsive - and there are some really cool sounds and tones set against each other throughout. It's not particularly melodically striking or structurally varied, but it cultivates a vibe I really relate to, one that's communal and yet intimate, a feeling of friends locking into a groove and applying new textures sporadically without ever trying to steal the spotlight. But the "small doses" comment makes a whole lot of sense; this record is basically four EPs stuck together, featuring four different bands who share tonal similarities but are all sonically distinct (barring the aforementioned percussion, which ties the whole thing together), showcasing some outstanding individual musicians in relatively humble 'team player' mode. It's also accessible, though, like a rawer take on trip-hop, only with jam band tendencies, but also slyly progressive in nature, a surprisingly natural mix of live performance and patchwork sampling that blurs the lines between both, providing innumerable exquisite moments but crucially never at the expense of the whole. But yeah, it's more manageable (and, probably, more enjoyable) when taken as four EPs.

It would take just as long (or longer) to put all of these entries in a chart, unless you copied and pasted them from elsewhere? :/

Pretty disappointed with thequietus' list. Been missing Complete Communion this year. Only heard about 20 of those albums but the only ones I'd recommend a listen to are Long Sleep, Slowly Paradise, and Reckonings (which is probs best of the three). Still not sold on Aviary. Hard to swallow JPEGMAFIA and Cardi B sandwiched in with extreme metal and noise. Talk about film, culture, and cassettes more than music now. Where is Autechre? Still need to listen to all the stuff they dropped towards the end of the year

NPR's entry feels like it was intended to be as much of a conversation-starter or sociopolitical statement as it was a year-end list. The writeup opens with the sentence "Art is identity, scream these best albums of 2018." That sets the tone for the list as a whole, in which representation of women and minority groups appears to be a priority, although according to NPR it was based on adding up votes cast by staff. There are no men in the top thirteen albums - all are by solo women or groups including only women.

There's a lot of good music on the list and some stuff I'll need to check out. I do wonder whether the methodology was more complex than they're letting on, or whether it was just a coincidence how it turned out. Think
