Were you aware when you wrote that that Rivers actually collaborated with the All-American Rejects on this steaming shitpile of a record?
Are you serious? Haaaahaha, wow. Suddenly it all makes sense.

All this hullabaloo about "oh, if only Weezer could make an album that was as good as Blue/Pinkerton" is complete cock and is much like hoping your scumbag boyfriend isn't gonna cheat on you again when he does so repeatedly. Rivers sucks, the whole band sucks, AHHHH C'MON FUCK THIS BAND, let's just forget that they ever existed. If you don't believe in them they can't hurt you anymore!
I don't expect any new albums from them to be as good as Pinkerton...in my opinion, few albums are. But I do expect them to not be embarrassing. First time I listened to Raditude I had to keep it the volume low because I was scared somebody would walk by and think I was listening to All-Time Low or something.

And for the record, I'm not one of those people who think Weezer's streak of good music ended with The Blue Album/Pinkerton. I think that The Green Album and especially Maladroit are criminally underrated records. Their past couple though...

I bought the new Weezer album today. As much as they are hit and miss these days I will ALWAYS buy a new Weezer album... Thoughts to follow.

Did you also get the snuggie with it?

My favourite part of the Snuggie commercials is when the mom is all swaddled up in the Snuggie keepin' "snuggly warm" while the baby is left to the elements in the apparently frigid living room.

I actually liked the musical evolution displayed by that album, but I really don't know a lot of other people here that like Rammstein...

Also: Diablo Swing Orchestra's "Sing-Along Songs for the Damned and Delirious" is making a really good case for itself this year.

I totally agree with you on this. I'm not sure why, but the "indrustrial-ish" twist on their music doesn't work with me. Maybe I still need another listen or two.

Yeah that was pretty much my experience. It basically sounds like it came straight from the '80s. I mean, it's an okay '80s record I guess, but that's hardly what I was looking for from a new Editors release.

I don't mind the Julian Casablancas album though. I mean, it's nothing special, but it's quite listenable.

Crippled Black Phoenix - 200 Tons of Bad Luck

As expected from a "supergroup", it's all over the place in a good way. You've got a couple traditional post-rock epics, a few Matt Elliott-esque depressing ballads, some heavy stoner riffs, and all of it is executed with amazing production values and great little touches that become more apparent with each listen.

Flaming Lips - Embryonic

Album of the year, will probably end up in the running for album of the decade. Their best work since Clouds Taste Metallic, bar none. After Mystics I honestly thought I wasn't part of their target audience at all anymore, but this thing is a monster.

The Pains of Being Pure at Heart - s/t

Never has such unabashedly catchy retro-pop been so elegantly good. It's fucking scary how easy they make this shit sound. At times I've listened to this thing on repeat in excess of three times in a row on car rides.

Dan Deacon - Bromst

Not only an insane, eclectic, fun record but the live show was even better. If you have the chance, SEE THIS MAN IN ACTION.

The Horrors - Primary Colours

Largely abandoning their previous aping of Gun Club-era punk and embracing influences from Can to Spiritualized, this album is both truly derivative and truly brilliant. It's good to see a band that finally lived up to their hype.

Phoenix - Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix

I feel like this album does for me what The Shins do for their fans. There's a definite comparison, but these guys hit higher notes and have a tighter sense of songwriting, with just enough curveballs to keep it from being pure pop.

Mono - Hymn to the Immortal Wind

It's a Mono album, I think that's all that really needs to be said.

A Place to Bury Strangers - Exploding Head

Not particularly different from their Jesus and Bloody Mary Division debut, but every bit as effective, if not moreso.

We Were Promised Jetpacks - These Four Walls

The best of the New Scottish Sound, easy. Beating The Twilight Sad at their own game, though...

The Twilight Sad - Forget the Night Ahead

...is still an amazing, cathartic record.

The xx - s/t

I love this shit.  So mellow, so natural, so beautiful, so retro, so futuristic.

I've really been trying to be open here, but I just can't get that goddamn ANb record out of the top spot.

Anyway, how is it possible NOT to love a record with a song called "Druggernaut Jug Fuck" and another song with the greatest Iron Maiden pun ever?

This is actually quite a common problem. The layman's term for it is 'ears'.


In all seriousness, this is a pretty good album, though it'll never get into my 'most listened' list on last.fm. It's diverse, interesting, and musical enough to justify the longer track lengths. The hidden track is actually very good, too (albeit not very grindcore).

if you don't think that album is one of the best album's you've heard this year then we've got words to have my friend, because there are so many parts that disagree with you: the crescendo of "my mother was born here, stoney indian" in "the battle of duck lake"; the sudden shift into an eerie major-key chiming guitar riff in "first neighbours" that totally belies the grimness of lines like "like a corpse we settle in"; the eruption of about seven measures of straight time into "i heard there's proof"; the way the drum line playfully mimics rhythm of the vocals in "unreunion" (or vice-versa, maybe); the way the intro cascades into three ringing melodies in "a year between the wars"; the absolutely amazing dissonance of the horns and strings in "frank slide," maybe the most effective use of those elements that i've heard in a few years, never mind the way that the song's rhythm suddenly changes from a strut to a weird, creepy shuffle; the surprisingly delicate nature of "bachelors, unite!" and the crisp lightness of the plucked guitar in that song; the sleater-kinneyish punk charge of "hallmark poultry limited" that's unexpected simply because of how brisk and straighforward it is; the "ooooos" that make "my teenage best friend's death in welland" more beautiful than it should be; the ghostly "we wait still" in "laura secord,"; the cinematic broadness of "louis riel leaves the college de montreal" that becomes terrible and awesome in the biblical sense during its horn-laden chorus; the martial rhythms of "spanish dance" that turn into a series of instrumental washes reminiscent of last year's excellent self-titled record by women.

i missed one song in there just cause i was thinking of all those parts off the top of my head. this is one of the most memorable records i've heard in a long time, and it's an album where absolutely no song, no section, no note is out of place. lean and cleverly-written and catchy, and some of the most incredible lyrics.

if that isn't enough for you, i'm perfectly willing to go through the last few pages and name the 2009 albums that don't hold a candle to this one.

I honestly no longer remember what albums I liked from the beginning of the year, and my computer died so I don't even have them anymore anyway, but I'm gonna come down on the side of The Dream - Love vs. Money being the best record of the year, and Gucci Mane - The State vs Radric Davis is in the top 10 somewhere. Also:

Smith Westerns - Self titled
Strange Boys - And Girls Club
Maxwell - Black Summers Night
Miranda Lambert - Revolutions
Mayer Hawthorne - Strange Arrangement
Avett Brothers - I and Love and You

And probably a bunch of other stuff I really liked at one point but forgot about.

Avett Brothers - I and Love and You

i was talking about that just last night, that album is like a reverse-grower.  i like it less every time i listen to it.  at first i thought it was 10/10 A+ but now i think it's just kind of ok.

It kind of bugs me, that I haven't heard the new Portal yet.

Actor was really, really good, and so was that Mayer Hawthorne record. Tight!

Fairly tweaked from the list I did in October, and a big rush of albums from just the past few weeks, including "Ox" by Coalesce which I absolutely am kicking myself over not hearing earlier. Also really weird seeing something like Regina Spektor's record outside of the Top 10, considering I didn't think anything could even touch it when I first listened to it. Ditto "Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix". I think this just speaks to how deeply I am in to sludge+hardcore right now than a comment on the music's quality. Also this list is a huge reminder that I really needed to give quite a lot of records more time and attention, but just ended up listening to "The Blue Record" instead.

Also, to comment on my top ten list, I had Franz Ferdinand's as my best album, not because it's a musical masterpiece or anything, but I just listened to it so many times, I couldn't not put it as my favourite album. And Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix is one of my runner-ups, bu I recently gave another listen to Vs. Children and I realised it was better.

Oh and congrats Johnny for being in my top ten. I recently re-gave a listen to your band's EP and it's honestly incredibly fun.

Just put my list up on my blog. Did a Top Ten, and then an honorable mention for anything below that.
