    whatever garbage Ceremony put out this year
    Cult Leader - Lightless Walk
    Lightning Bolt - Fantasy Empire
    Heems - Eat Prey Thug
    Panda Bear - grim reaper
    that comically bad Refused album
  • so far my top songs list is mostly hip hop then my top albums list is almost no hip hop lmao
  • man, eat prey thug was so bad
  • Deafheaven wasn't disappointing

  • you gonna do your list before hearing Oblivion Access???
  • Oblivion Access is pretty ace so far, gotta listen again.
  • It's lean, cohesive and, imo, much better than Mista Thug Isolation.
  • now hold on there i'm taking that with a grain of salt because MTI is a classic
  • MTI has a lot of fat on it imo. It's like 20 tracks long, and some are not that great.
  • I disagree, there actually isn't a single thing on there I'd consider filler
