Girl 2017 is like the best year this decade. It gave us Melodrama, Lust For Life, Pop 2, Number 1 Angel, Reputation and that’s just the pop girls. So many other hidden gems.

but overall 2017 was somehow weak, do not forget tove lo, but I was able to make a lists out of singles and albums til 2017 some may find it weird but yeah I was doing my lists.

I loved this topic!! It forced me to research different years... I feel like I just started taking albums seriously a few years back, so most of my rolodex involves singles.

I'm leaving 2013 and 2014 blank because 2013 I genuinely struggled and 2014 I could only find St. Vincent's self titled... but that's my third favorite album of hers and I didn't want to over emphasize my love for her.

 

2010: Arcade Fire, The Suburbs

Heard this album for the first time in 2015 and it blew me away. The record has some really good pop songs-- "Sprawl II" (sounds like "Heart of Glass" by Blondie) & plenty of moody bangers ("Half Light I" & "Half Light II", "City With No Children", "Modern Man").

2011: St. Vincent, Strange Mercy

This is my favorite St. Vincent album. When considered thematically and sonically (i'm mainly referring to distorted electric guitar), it's very manic depressive. The title track is heart wrenchingly beautiful and "Cruel" is the only song by her I can play that everybody likes.

2012: Grimes, Visions

Like most of my pre-2015 favorites, I didn't hear this album until this year. I absolutely love it. While a lot of my favorites will make me sound like a broken record, I think "Nightmusic" and "Symphonia IX" are also wonderful.

2015: Father John Misty, I Love You, Honeybear

             Tame Impala, Currents     

             Grimes, Art Angels

This year was the most formative of them all for my music taste. FJM's record will always make me think of a few of my close friends and, as a college student, maybe had a little too much influence on my worldview. There's certainly optimism in the album, but there's plenty of pessimism available to internalize. Favorite tracks are "Holy ****" and "I Went to The Store One Day"

Tame Impala's album is a record I have never tired of. It's synonymous with summer for me. That's when I first heard it and I think that also holds up with the psychedelic, electronic sound. Can't pick a favorite off of this, it's always changing. I was so excited about Joanne when I heard these two were on it.

Art Angels, like Visions, I also heard for the first time this year. "Kill v. Maim" is my favorite song of life and I can't wait for Spotify 2019 Year End to roast me for it-- it's unlike anything I've ever heard, and I think it's such a good synthesis of my favorite elements of different genres. It has elements of punk, metal, pop, rock, some might argue country... maybe more evident in "California", another favorite off the record. "Flesh Without Blood", "laughing and not being normal", I can go on... maybe my favorite album ever?

2016: Frankie Cosmos, Next Thing

I hope GGD members would like this album. Of the ones I've listed, it seems the least likely to generate a positive response. What it lacks in dancepop (a lot), I think it makes up for in charm and sweetness. I love how short her songs are-- she has a great economy of language. "Fool", "Is It Possible / Sleep Song", "Outside with the Cuties", "On the Lips" ... 

2017: St. Vincent, MASSEDUCTION

Another album that feels impossible for me to select a favorite from. "Young Lover" and "Slow Disco" stood out immediately. Each track, except for maybe "Smoking Section",  has been my favorite at one time or another. 

2018: Janelle Monaé, Dirty Computer

This comes hardly before Mitski's Be The Cowboy. But there's no record I listened to in my car more. I loved driving up and down the east coast blasting this from start to finish-- why do I love the song "Take a Byte" so much? ... This was the first year I felt like I wasn't aggressively playing catch up on albums I missed out on from when I was younger. So this is a hard year to pick for. I loved SOPHIE's album, U.S. Girls's album, Kacey's album... such a great year. 

2019: CHAI, PUNK

Ok, I take it back-- this is the album that people on GGD will probably least connect with. I understand, of course, because there is a language barrier. But if you like distorted guitar and people who sing in a high-register, among many MANY other things, this record provides. Call Me By Your Name's soundtrack got me to a point where I was like "fine, I don't need to know what they're saying. I just like how this sounds." "Curly Adventure", "Feel the Beat", "Future", and 'Wintime" are my favorites. I'm worried that things I'm saying are vaguely problematic, so maybe I should stop trying to quantify and qualify my opinion...

also...

Grimes, Miss_Anthropocene IF SHE RELEASES ALREADY

"We Appreciate Power" got me to finally explore her discography. This song is bonkers. Also these snippets:

 

"Untitled"

"So Heavy I Fell Through The Earth"

"That's What the Drugs are For"

I can't at how weak these last three years have been for music. Literally only 2/3 albums are good and have replay value from each year. 2017 had LFL, Double Dutchess, Melodrama and reputation; 2018 had Caution, Queen and Expectations and 2019 so far has been the weakest with only 2: Beauty Marks and Madame X (hopefully LG6 and In My Defense will snatch)

literally; add reputation and blue lips to 2017, honestly so many disappointments, Xtina was weak, solange, ari to be honest what was that, bravo she worked so har but I am not feeling it. Madame X is fine, there are few good songs, Iggy is a hit or miss. last 3 years are a single era for me. We will see Katy and Tove, Taylor, Gaga hopefully.

 

I forgot to mention witness for 2017,  no body put katy on top lol

Omg don't even get me started at Xtina and this is coming from someone who stans Lotus, an album which everyone hates. Liberation aged like milk for me in a week and is the only Xtina album I hate. I have a love/hate relationship with Witness and Never Really Over started to annoy me a day after the song dropped. Ariana is literally putting out demos and Migos rejects by now and acts like Splenda and thank u, next are her magnum opuses when in reality they are worse than Hitler and have already aged quicker than a white grandma. Taylor has really disappointed me with ME! but I liked YNTCD so we will see if Lover's a hit in my eyes. Gaga hasn't put out a decent album since ARTPOP, Rihanna and Beyonce are the only ones who have improved over the years. The problem is they don't have the same passion as when they first started. They used to promote an album for like a year and now they promote it only for a week and move on, the music videos are/feel uninspiring except Iggy's and Katy's. I don't know what's happening but they better pull their sh!t together and start releasing quality again.
