Part 2 of 2…
Now this list will only contain 10 albums. The idea of this second list, is to distinguish a gap between personal preferences in sound, style, production, and to clarify the greatest, most addicting, re-spun and unavoidable records of the year. (An album’s rating will not be shown, as this is deemed unimportant for the best of list).
A description is not provided, as the albums within this list, should speak for themselves when you listen.
10. Happyness – Weird Little Birthday
9. The Amazing Snakeheads – Amphetamine Ballads
8. East India Youth – Total Strife Forever
7. Real Estate – Atlas
6. YOUNG FATHERS – DEAD
5. Adult Jazz – Gist Is
4. Eagulls – Eagulls
3. Perfume Genius – Too Bright
2. SOHN – Tremors
1. clipping – CLPPNG
For those who viewed part 1, the mention of CLPPNG being the best ‘provoking’ album, proclaims that CLPPNG provided the most conscious effort to lure listeners into analysing the album as a whole. Lyrically and instrumentally, what message(s) the album was trying to produce and how challenging were these message(s).
