    Bedwetter - Flick Your Tongue Against Your Teeth and Describe the Present
  • listened to a lot more than that but limiting to 20 for sanity's sake
  • the ooz might top it for me eventually but i'm still digesting. flower boy is on top for now.
  • scum fuck flower boy is such a better name for that album i'm disappointed he couldn't get away with it
  • i think that name is more classically tyler, and i did prefer it initially. but after getting really familiar with the album and its themes, the softer flower boy feels more fitting
  • agree to disagree, i think scum fuck flower boy personifies the album and provides the contrast between his public perception and the person he actually sees himself as
  • but i digress, i love it as an album and i would go so far to say its the first good Tyler album. he's had tracks on his other albums that been solid, but they're been spotty at best
  • Album is on some Oscar bait shit
  • it's overhyped, but so has every tyler album
  • like no album could possibly be as good as some of the hype around OF albums
  • blonde comes to mind as another example
  • hot take: flower boy is underhyped

    *des smites me with a large piano*
  • i feel like in LA you really feel OF's presence since they're all doing events around here all the time. briefly met hodgy at an art gallery once lol
  • 1. King Krule - The OOZ
    2. Mount Eerie - A Crow Looked at Me

    from here on out, additions to this list will probably be stuff I missed out on when it first came out.

    Fleet Foxes - Crack-Up (perfect)
    Tyler, the Creator - Flower Boy (decent 9)
    Visible Cloaks - Reassemblage (light 9)
    Caddywhompus - Odd Hours (light 9)

    Grizzly Bear - Painted Ruins (strong 8)
    King Krule - The Ooz (strong 8)
    Ariel Pink - Dedicated to Bobby Jameson (strong 8)
    Tara Jane O'Neil - Tara Jane O'Neil (strong 8)
    Charlotte Gainsbourg - Rest (decent 8)
    House and Land - House and Land (decent 8)
    Chuck Johnson - Balsams (decent 8)
    Brockhampton - Saturation II (decent 8)
    Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith - The Kid (decent 8)
    A7PHA - A7PHA (decent 8)
    Kelly Lee Owens - Kelly Lee Owens (decent 8)

    Juana Molina - Halo (decent 8)
    The Weather Station - The Weather Station (light 8)
    The Necks - Unfold (light 8)
    Jay-Z - 4:44 (light 8)
    King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard - Polygondwanaland (light 8)
    Kendrick Lamar - DAMN. (light 8)
    King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard - Flying Microtonal Banana (light 8)
    Animal Collective - Meeting of the Waters (light 8)
    Clap! Clap! - A Thousand Skies (light 8)

    Honourable mentions:
    Boogarins - La Vem a Morte (strong 7)
    Foxygen - Hang (strong 7)
    Marika Hackman - I'm Not Your Man (decent 7)
    Pond - The Weather (decent 7)
    The XX - I See You (decent 7)
    Gunn - Truscinski Duo - Bay Head (decent 7)

    Music which is hard to categorise;
    Mount Eerie - A Crow Looked At Me (heartbreaking and emotionally devastating)

    in rotation/need to listen to more;
    Jonwayne - Rap Album Two
    Octo Octa - Where Are We Going?
    Sneaks - It's a Myth
    Algiers - The Underside of Power
    Roc Marciano - RoseBudds Revenge
    MIKE - MAY GOD BLESS YOUR HUSTLE
    Florist - If Blue Could Be Happiness
    Bell Witch - Mirror Reaper
    death's dynamic shroud.wmv - Heavy Black Heart
    Eric Copeland - Goofballs
    James Holden & the Animal Spirits - The Animal Spirits

    if you see stuff disappear from my list it probably means I don't care about it any more.
    I still probably like the album, but not enough to return to it. Everything on the current list has managed to retain my interest in some way (stays in my mind, I consistently like playing a song or two, or even the whole album occasionally)
    If it's disappeared then I probably saw it on the list and was like "Yeah I don't really think about this album any more." and boom, off it goes.
