A lot of the records on that list were huge let downs for me.
Frightened Rabbit was just more of the same, with a little less atmosphere IMO
The Wonder Years tried to do much, and completely forgot what makes pop-punk and Suburbia what it is, the hooks.
Cartel again released an incredibly inconsistent record.
Story So Far was solid, but nothing really changed.

Yeah, a 7" with two re-recorded songs is the 2nd best EP so far.

This.

Also I don't think FOB is even half as good as most of the albums I've heard this year. But I still like it

I like the record more as time goes on, I think. There's really only one and a half songs that bother me. It would probably be top five on my own personal list, not number one.
The Courtney Love song is fucking horrible.

It's all his opinion so I don't really care. Just weird. Don't give a shit about FOB though.

Well it's the cumulated staffs opinion so that's why it's kind of weird haha

Just dumb that a 2 song live 7" would even be considered on there with both songs being so old already

I mean, I guess I can understand leaving off The Future is Canceled just given its reach. I imagine it will wind up in some midyear lists and people will finally get around to saying "I should check this out. Oh dayum how did I sleep on this for three months???"

But no Trouble Will Find Me either??? Not sure how that happens.

Those two, as well as The Greatest Generation, are easily the top three albums so far for me.

My #1 album and EP are the same, haha. I probably would've put Paramore and Tegan & Sara on my albums list, though. Soooo good.

It is my opinion that any list featuring Local Natives should feature The National higher. Also, Save Rock and Roll would be on my list of least favourite albums of the year. Of the records I've actually listened to more than once it's probably number one.

Not "my" opinion here. Staff voted list of 30+ people. FOB got the most votes.

Why exactly? The band was voted on the most by 30+ people.

my dudes in On My Honor released a killer album.

So far, not too many bands really caught my eye this year.

I can see it being up there because it is an extremely popular band. But man that album is terrible. Just hurts seeing it as number one.

I *personally* enjoy it a lot. It's not my favorite record of the year, but is up there for me. Again though, it seems to be a favorite for our staff, which is why it got voted to number one. I'm sorry that you lost respect for my website - that's a big bummer to me. Hope we can win it back someday soon.
