Tiny Mix Tapes EOD Albums

One of the better Indie websites begins their end of decade countdown a few months after everyone else. They posted the first twenty today, and will continue until Friday. So far it's interesting, although they admit to not having any Sufjan Stevens so that's unfortunate.

Re: Tiny Mix Tapes EOD Albums

Re: Tiny Mix Tapes EOD Albums

Re: Tiny Mix Tapes EOD Albums

*jaw drops*

Well, I guess Funeral isn't their #1 album then. I thought Funeral and YHF were both locked for T10, but I guess there's very little predictable about this list at all. Here's my stab at the T20

Animal Collective - Merriweather Post Pavillion
Battles - Mirrored
Deerhunter - Microcastle
Dirty Projecters - Bitte Orca
Fennesz - Endless Summer
Fleet Foxes - Fleet Foxes
Ghostface Killah - Supreme Clientele
Interpol - Turn on the Bright Lights
Joanna Newsom - Ys
LCD Soundsystem - Sound of Silver
Madvillain - Madvillainy
Panda Bear - Person Pitch
Portishead - Third
Radiohead - In Rainbows
Radiohead - Kid A
The White Stripes - White Blood Cells

I have no idea what the last 4 are.

Well, one of those other 4 is by whoever the f*** Graham Lambkin is, because they made a point on page 1 of saying "yes, Sufjan Stevens is not on this list, but Graham Lambkin is." What an odd list - as they also said, plenty of "the usual suspects" are here, but there are also no less than eleven albums in their top 50 - so far - that have not appeared in ANY of the other lists on the EOD spreadsheet.

Re: Tiny Mix Tapes EOD Albums

Due to the review it recieved, I think Animal Collective's Feels will be in the top 20.

Re: Tiny Mix Tapes EOD Albums

Yeah this list is very strange. I read TMT two or three times a week, and I haven't heard almost half of these albums. Their EOY lists are usually pretty normal, so I think they're just trying to be different. Funeral received a 5/5 from them and topped their 04 EOY list and couldn't crack the T20.

Re: Tiny Mix Tapes EOD Albums

maybe Wilco's A Ghost is Born will make it. They gave it a 5 star too, and seemed to say it was better in their reviews.

20. Boredoms - Vision Creation Newsun
19. Xiu Xiu - Fabulous Muscles
18. Joanna Newsom - Ys
17. Cannibal Ox - The Cold Vein
16. Dirty Projectors - Bitte Orca
15. Graham Lambkin - Salmon Run
14. Fennesz - Endless Summer
13. Dizzee Rascal - Boy in da Corner
12. Animal Collective - Merriweather Post Pavilion
11. Ghostface Killah - Fishscale
10. William Basinski - Disintegration Loops
09. Black Dice - Beaches and Canyons
08. Panda Bear - Person Pitch
07. Godspeed You Black Emperor! - Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas To Heaven
06. Deerhoof - Reveille
05. The Microphones - The Glow, Pt. 2
04. Madvillain - Madvillainy
03. Lightning Bolt - Wonderful Rainbow
02. Animal Collective - Sung Tongs
01. Radiohead - Kid A

Re: Tiny Mix Tapes EOD Albums

When I saw Sung Tongs at #2, I legitimately didn't know what #1 was. This has got to be easily the most out-of-left-field list out of any on the spreadsheet. What I really can't get though, is that Deerhunter's Microcastle didn't make the list at all. They gave it the very rare 5/5 rating, and called it their top album of 2008.

I know, I was pretty disappointed. As a huge fan of Microcastle, I was sure this list would boost it's AM ranking. Their prior EOY lists sure don't resemble their EOD list.
