    Someone with anger issues ruined the previous part. Let’s move on to the topic in a new thread 🙂

    Yes, it’s my third favorite release of the year after you-know-who and The Strokes.

    I tried Fetch The Bolt Cutters again and still wasn’t a fan. I did almost like it this time, and I can definetely see why other people enjoy it. But it’s just not my style, with the rough production and the repetitive lyrics. There’s also a lot of sing-talky parts, which I’m never a huge fan of.

    On the other hand, I also listened to Kid Krow by Conan Grey yesterday and really enjoyed it. It’s one of the most well-rounded and consistent albums of the year, with a ton of variety and very few skips. It’s hard to pick a concerte standout, but my favorite probably comes down to Maniac, Checkmate, and Affluenza.

    I feel like many singer-songwriter/art-pop take time to develop feelings for depending on the person you are.

     

    Like one of the two AOTY was Weyes Blood’s Titanic Rising, grew in months after listening to it early April. But honestly, I’m glad that I learned about this album when it came out.

     

    I mean give Fetch the Bolt Cutters chances, and maybe that’s not for you. And that’s okay, there are other albums that could the one.

    Albums of the Year:
    2020: After Hours (RU: folklore)
    2019: Titanic Rising (RU: Charli)
    2018: OIL OF EVERY PEARL’S UN-INSIDES (RU: You Won’t Get What You Want)
    2017: Saturation Trilogy (RU: Melodrama)
    2016: Blonde (RU: Blackstar)

    I mean, it’s just music. You ain’t got to love it. You’re not “uncultured” for not “getting it”. You’re not a “snob” for loving it. Because of the high amount of acclaim, more people are responding to the hype than the actual music. And they feel they either have to immediately love it or poo-pop over it while using nonsense words like “overrated” or “pretentious”. It ain’t that deep. While this is almost a jazz-punk-pop album, with a lot of thematic layers and strange musical shifts and loops. And Fiona’s vocal delivery ranges from spoken-word-rap-like to yelling. It’s not gonna be for everyone. I will say that it’s something I continue to have changing feelings about. For example, my initial favorite songs aren’t my favorite songs now. And I first thought the second half was a decent bit stronger than the first. Now, I prefer the first half. One of the reasons it’s so refreshing is that it feels alive. There’s a hypnotic, disturbing, cathartic, organic quality to it. But if you don’t fall for it, it’s not a big deal. Hell, a handful of long-term Fiona fans don’t love it. No one is telling you you gotta love something.

    I agree

    My initial feelings about El Mal Querer by Rosalia and LP1 by FKA Twigs were not good, and over the months they grew on me and I love them today. Glad that I just didn’t throw it away.

    Kevin should have won for Lonerism and Currents already. That and Fiona winning this year would be a perfect world.

    I personally think Music is a super subjective art form and that it’s almost impossible to crown any single album or song the best of the year because so many people have different tastes in music and thus will have different favorites. Pop is my favorite genre, so my favorite Album or Song will almost always be Pop. And that’s fine. Arguing about music is fine, as long as you can respect someone else’s tastes and not shove your opinion down their throat.

    Agreed. The album is overrated. At least you gave it a chance. You should give Tame Impala’s The Slow Rush a listen. It doesn’t have a score of 100 on Metacritic. Or break any new ground. But it’s a thoroughly listenable project from start to finish. Definitely the best Alternative record in serious contention IMO.

    I’ve never listened to Tame Impala. Does that make me uncultured? I’ll give them a try soon.
