Re: Forum Poll: The Best Albums and Songs of 2001

I need a judgement call... apparently the version of N.E.R.D.'s "In Search Of..." was released in the U.S. in 2002 and was re-recorded with more rock-oriented backing tracks.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/In_Search_of..._%28N.E.R.D_album%29

Do I wait until 2002 to include it on my list? I actually like the fuller sound and I'm not sure I'd be a fan of the original stripped down version. In my college rock days, this was probably the first R&B album that convinced me that other genres could be a little off-kilter and interesting, while including a dance beat that made it more fun for parties.

Re: Forum Poll: The Best Albums and Songs of 2001

Albums

1. White Stripes - White Blood Cells (because it's also the best album of the decade)
2. Bob Dylan - Love and Theft (because he was back and sounding like Father Time)
3. Strokes - Is This It (because their narcissistic, non-challant coolness was also catchy as hell)
4. In Search of …, - N.E.R.D. (because they obviously saved their best stuff for themselves)
5. Bjork - Vespertine (because she's consistently unique)
6. Coup - Party Music (because they're the funkiest hip-hop this side of OutKast)
7. Weezer - Weezer (because green is a cool color, and "Hash Pipe" is this year's "Song 2")
8. Jay-Z - The Blueprint (because blue is a cool color, and Jay-Z is the smoothest)
9. Basement Jaxx - Rooty (because it's inspired mayhem and I love the cover)
10. Guided by Voices - Isolation Drills (because it was always the hooks and melodies with these guys)
11. Lucinda Williams - Essence (because even slowing it down, she's awesome)
12. Tenacious D, Tenacious D (because they're funny and still manage to rock)
13. Gorillaz - Gorillaz (because this is the best album by cartoon characters ever)
14. New Order - Get Ready (because they hadn't sounded this good in a long time)
15. Ryan Adams - Gold (because it starts out amazingly, but can't quite sustain it)
16. Jimmy Eat World - Bleed American (because it's my favorite generic alt-rock of the era)
17. Missy Elliott - Miss E ... So Addictive (because she's horny)
18. Manu Chao - Proximas Estacion: Esperanza (because we all need a little hope)
19. Shins - Oh, Inverted World (because they'll change your life)
20. Cannibal Ox - The Cold Vein (because I love my children)

That's the version I voted for, and I put it 2001 just to avoid confusion and vote splitting.

Re: Forum Poll: The Best Albums and Songs of 2001

Thanks to the voters who recommended Aesop Rock's Labor Days. After two listens it's already one of my favorite hip-hop albums of the 00s, and I will join several others in voting for the song "Daylight" in addition to the album.

My favourite Spanish song of 2001: La Buena Vida's "Qué nos va a pasar"

Donosti (Basque name) or San Sebastián (Spanish name) is a lovely city by the sea (see) on the north coast of Spain. Amidst the politically convoluted Basque Country, Donosti managed to maintain a serene, distinguished and noble bearing. The blue seas and the grey skies of Donosti gave also name to a style, the "Donosti Sound", a subtle and fragile pop sound that tried to capture the beauty of the simplicity. A bunch of bands with "coincidence of adjectives: naïve, polite, lazy, delicate" in words of Guillermo Z del Águila for Rockdelux. The pioneers of the style were Aventuras de Kirlian on the late 80s but the Donosti Sound blossomed in the mid 90s with bands like Family, Le Mans, Daily Planet, El Joven Bryan and, of course, La Buena Vida ("The Good Life"). The influences of these bands included pop sounds from the 60s (Love, Beach Boys) to the 80s (Smiths, Orange Juice), with echoes of easy listening (Burt Bacharach), French pop (Serge Gainsbourg) and bossa (Astrud Gilberto). These bands shared also record labels (Siesta and Elefant) and the same cover art designer (the awesome Javier Aramburu, see here).
La Buena Vida was the band of that scene with a longer and most succesful career. Their fifth album Hallelujah! (2001) included my favourite song from them, Qué nos va a pasar (What's Gonna Happen With Us). A bittersweet song about the end of a relationship. About that point "when the conversation decline". About the uncertainity, about not knowing "what’s gonna happen with us". About the desolation (I will hide, now that you leave, I won’t go out anymore; what’s the use if I can’t see you). About the resignation that came with the last refrain (when time passes by, you will find someone else and you will forget me, that’s the usual thing, even if it maddens us, it’s always like that, and we try hard to conceal). About the disenchantment, necessary in singer Irantzu Valencia's own words: "It's the disenchantment necessary to become enchanted with something or someone again, you need to go through this disenchantment before".


QUÉ NOS VA A PASAR
Composer: Mikel Aguirre / José Luis Lanzagorta / Javier Sánchez / Pedro San Martín / Raúl Sebastián / Irantzu Valencia
Performer: LA BUENA VIDA
First release: 2001 ("Qué nos va a pasar" single)
Length: 3’44”

Cada día trato de acertar por dónde saldrás;
eso es tanto como adivinar qué nos va a pasar.
Has estado, hace tiempo, algo raro por momentos.
Me pregunto algo inquieta qué nos va a pasar.

No recuerdo cuándo decayó la conversación
ni el punto en que dices tú que algo cambió.
Sin embargo, mientras tanto, yo me guardo la esperanza
y las cosas que en la plaza nos dijimos hoy.

Ahora que te vas pediré perdón y dirás que no
y estará muy bien, ya sabes por qué.
Yo me esconderé, ahora que te vas,
ya no saldré más; dime para qué, si no te voy a ver.

Sin embargo, mientras tanto, yo me guardo la esperanza
y las cosas que en la plaza nos dijimos hoy.

Ahora que te vas pediré perdón y dirás que no
y estará muy bien, ya sabes por qué.
Yo me esconderé, ahora que te vas
ya no saldré más; dime para qué, si no te voy a ver.

Cuando pase el tiempo conocerás a alguien más
y me olvidarás, y es que es lo normal,
aunque nos dé rabia siempre ocurre igual,
y nos esforzarnos en disimular.


WHAT’S GONNA HAPPEN WITH US

Every day I try to guess how you’ll turn out,
but that’s as much as guessing what’s gonna happen with us.
You’ve been lately quite strange, sometimes,
I wonder slightly restless what’s gonna happen with us.

I don’t remember when the conversation declined,
neither the point in which you say that something changed.
Meanwhile I still keep the hope
and the things we said today at the square

Now that you leave I will say sorry, and you will say no,
and it will be alright, you know why.
I will hide, now that you leave,
I won’t go out anymore; what’s the use if I can’t see you.

Meanwhile I still keep the hope
and the things we said today at the square.

Now that you leave I will say sorry, and you will say no,
and it will be alright, you know why.
I will hide, now that you leave,
I won’t go out anymore; what’s the use if I can’t see you.

When time passes by, you will find someone else
and you will forget me, that’s the usual thing,
even if it maddens us, it’s always like that,
and we try hard to conceal.

Nice lists, antonius, but I think some of your songs aren't from 2001.

If I Ever Feel Better - 2000
What Else Is There - 2005
Danger! High Voltage - 2002
One More Time = 2000

Just mentioning in case you want to substitute them.

Re: Forum Poll: The Best Albums and Songs of 2001

Cannibal Ox at 11? WHY WORLD WHY?!?!?

Re: Forum Poll: The Best Albums and Songs of 2001

Holy crap Cannibal Ox is awesome. Oh well, my vote wouldn't have pushed it over the threshold.

Are we sure we don't want to do the 150 album thing...?

Re: Forum Poll: The Best Albums and Songs of 2001

Get Ur Freak On in ahead of The Middle - disappointing. Will probably be my #100 at the end. Good to see Crystal in though. Disappointing Gold missed out as well

Re: Forum Poll: The Best Albums and Songs of 2001

Are there going to be any spreadsheets for this decade?

That came in my mind too when I saw Cannibal Ox at #11 (although I haven't even listened to that album).

Rocky Raccoon

Are there going to be any spreadsheets for this decade?

Yes. I sent the spreadsheet of 2001 to Henrik today (and will send also from 2000 and the rest of the years if that's ok with him).

Re: Forum Poll: The Best Albums and Songs of 2001

I really wish albums 9 and 10 were switched with 11 and 12. The Glow, Pt. 2 should have been a shoo-in. I'm happy with Rings Around the World's high placement, though.

On the songs list, I'm really surprised Get Ur Freak On made it, that song has never seemed to have much support around here and has always been overrated by critics. It will probably be bottom-five for me.

I agree with you completely about Get Ur Freak On.

I have a difficult time enjoying Dylan's 2001 offering because to me his vocals resemble the sound of a dying goat.

That's what turned me off of it a little, that's why he stood just outside my top 10.

Overall I think '01 was much stronger year for albums than singles. You could make the case that most of the album tracks on Is This It or Discovery are as good as the bottom half of our top 10.

Re: Forum Poll: The Best Albums and Songs of 2001

Hypothetical question:

If Girls, Girls, Girls (the original) had received 162 points and the remix had received 100 points for a total of 262, would it have advanced to the next round?

262 would have been good enough for 10th place, but neither version got enough by itself. I think the answer to this question should be yes.

Re: Forum Poll: The Best Albums and Songs of 2001

Here's a link to the spreadsheet:

Henrik
Here's a link to the spreadsheet:

Thank you Henrik.
There's at least one mistake in the spreadsheet. Bobby Conn – The Golden Age wqs nj's #7 so it should have 18 points (not 16 p). There's is also album and artist called nj's #12 with 9 points. I hope no one posts her/his lists in format like nj did ever again (or at least posts also the text. The album covers were actually nice.)
Thanks

Edit: The link to the spreadsheet didn't work.

Re: Forum Poll: The Best Albums and Songs of 2001

Oh, I used the wrong file name, but now I've changed it so it should work. Sorry.

Re: Forum Poll: The Best Albums and Songs of 2001

Haha, I loved nj's Box of Pandora. Too bad Koenjihyakkei's Nivraym was not included in it though, it would've fitted in. It's the kind of album so crazy, you hardly can believe it exists.

I was unaware any Zeuhl bands besides Magma existed until looking up what this what, especially not a Japanese Zeuhl band.
