Here, like their previous releases, was music that had very little to do with the real world, it was (whisper it) incorporeal. Wasn't 'who see's you' the soundtrack to your soul bursting through the clouds to arrive at heaven's gate, or 'in another way' perfect for that scene where everything gets heavily psychedelic in '2001', or 'wonder 2' My Bloody Valentine at their most bonkers and their most bafflingly disorientating.
m b v was the soundtrack to February 2013, scratch that, 2013 and it was fucking great." February 2013 [First added to this chart: 02/03/2013]
In fact, I'll go to say Blond has so many of the qualities missing from white music these days: balls; new ideas; sonic innovation; and the ability to take the listener to new places. Just as much as this is a modern, 21st Century R'n'B album it's also a spiritual heir to works such as Closer or Loveless - it's that good. Simply put, Frank Ocean makes everyone else look like a bunch of clueless, ungainly fools. Wow." August 2016 [First added to this chart: 08/25/2016]
The Murder Capital are Irish - this is important. James McGovern sings with an Irish accent and his thick brogue smears a softness and poeticism/romanticism that has been sorely missing lately.
And then there’s the music, more post-punk than punk, it’s an urgent and intense mix that veers from sky-scraping ferocity to emotionally naked intimacy.
Like Interpol and Bloc Party, they are one of those bands, they love Joy Division but this is no hastily cobbled-together facsimile. Joy Division are an obvious influence, a springboard from which to map their dreams and nightmares.
Get ready, The Murder Capital are slaying.“ August 2019 [First added to this chart: 08/12/2019]
There are even some echoes of the past, with Go Get It featuring the burnt out coda of Souvlaki Space Station and Falling Ashes' simple piano motif being oddly reminiscent of Sigur Ros, one of their many admirers. The experimentation of Pygmalion also features in most of the material, particularly the use of repetition not unlike the use of loops on that album.
What more is there to say? As a comeback album it's a resounding success and easily their best since Souvlaki.
'Tis beautiful." May 2017 [First added to this chart: 05/05/2017]
If you hate how the 2010’s have turned out, you need this record, IDLES are an oasis of common-sense in a world slowly but surely going to pot.” August 2019 [First added to this chart: 08/04/2019]

Outliers can be removed when calculating a mean average to dampen the effects of ratings outside the normal distribution. This figure is provided as the trimmed mean. A high standard deviation can be legitimate, but can sometimes indicate 'gaming' is occurring. Consider a simplified example* of an item receiving ratings of 100, 50, & 0. The mean average rating would be 50. However, ratings of 55, 50 & 45 could also result in the same average. The second average might be more trusted because there is more consensus around a particular rating (a lower deviation).
(*In practice, some charts can have several thousand ratings)
This chart is rated in the top 14% of charts on BestEverAlbums.com. This chart has a mean average rating of 86.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 85.9/100. The standard deviation for this chart is 8.4.

OK, so why have I included so many Perfume Genius lps? Well, I think this guy is great and he’s been consistently excellent with each release. Definitely one of the best artists of the 10’s. Give him a chance you might be pleasantly surprised.
Haven't heard many of these, or heard of some of them, but your descriptions make me want to hear them all!
I wasn't personally a big fan of your overall chart, and though maybe I don't agree with many of the picks (four PG albums and a total absence of hip hop are my main gripes) the inclusion of the mini reviews are a joy to read. Great stuff!!
very nice approach, though I feel that 4 albums of Perfect Genius is a bit exaggerate !!
Good chart..love the'at length' details
Earlier CotD comment still stands.
Really love the descriptions :D
MY OH MY! This 2010s is better than mine! I'll follow your chart until December 31th, 2019.
REALLY solid chart, love your varied selections!
