Incredible song.


One of the greatest songs from Kanye. Donda is not the wave besides a few songs and definitely isn’t touching Yeezus. It’s sad Pablo will probably be the last good Kanye album. Donda is mediocre af.

Jay Electronica killed it though.

I watch this live rendition 2 or 3 times daily, so I thought it was worth posting. Robin Pecknold's voice is **** unbelievable.

New Kanye: meh
New Drake: meh
New Westside Gunn: good, but too much crack talk.


Pretty much all I'm listening to right now is old Gravediggaz and Sunz of Man albums.

Just want to say a couple of weeks into the new CHVRCHES album (and months into the singles) and it's perhaps my favorite album of the year.

Aside from the obvious singles of Good Girls and He Said She Said, this song + acoustic version really get it.

Isaiah Rashad is, imo, a top 5 2010's rapper. His new stuff is no dissapointment.

Can't gamble feeding baby on that dope money, might not always be sufficient.

Pitchfork readers are hipsters and a certain cult of music fandom so it should be no surprise that the greatest living band in that culture holds 3 of the top 4 spots.

Surprised Bon Iver wasn’t in the top 10. Puzzling.

I don't know why it bothers me so much, but the opinion of Melodrama > Pure Heroine is so bafflingly terrible that it makes my eye twitch.

It is indeed very BOH, but not as catchy as their standout singles of the past IMO. At least not on first day's listen. Maybe it grows.

Nevertheless, came to post it also :) So here's some other new ones.






This one is from several months ago, but took me a while to grab onto.

Does anyone here primarily use Amazon Music Unlimited as their streamer?

Yes! My favorite album of the year outside of the Baby Keem album. Cilvia Demo and Sun’s Tirade are both classics as well, very high replay value.

Tough to pick the best over the last 25 years, but Anathema’s “Weather Systems” might get my vote.
