My taste is so superior to everybody else in the known galaxy that even questioning me is blasphemy.

Okay, boss!  :-D

The larger point is that I have embarrassingly narrow taste.

Hope that made more sense.

Yep. You can work on it.  ;)

Oh and by the way, I looked at the list I'd posted here, you can forget that one. (I think I'd already edited it once or twice.) It's sometimes really hard to tell who are my faves. Some days I might prefer the shoegazing/melancholy sound, other days I might prefer punk/rock, others I might prefer blues or singer/songwriter, others maybe classical... aaaah, I might go crazy putting all that into a coherent list...  :smth100

Why? Your taste isn't above everyone else's, or is it?  :?

Wee 'lil joke.

What I was originally trying to say without the tongue in cheek goofiness, is that there are 3 kinds of folks who heard the recent Slowdive album...

1. Folks who loved it
2. Folks who were like meh whatev
3. Folks who were like errr umm nope

...and if you were ALREADY in Group #1 (hooray for Group #1)...
...and you were weird enough to have a yearly ranking of albums (congrats on not being that weird lol)...
...then is there anybody who is like oh yeah I loved that Slowdive album but yeah it was like only #4 for me last year...
...because there were somehow 3 mysterious albums that were more Disintegration-Shoegaze-Awesome...
...and I was all, no way, cmon, really?

The larger point is that I have embarrassingly narrow taste.

Hope that made more sense.

Is there anybody here who loved the recent Slowdive album, but somehow preferred anything else as their year-end #1 album? I can't imagine such a thing is possible.

I love the Slowdive album, but nowadays I find it hard to make a "ranking" list of albums. I just listen what I feel is the album which fits my mood for now, when I'm in the right mood it will be Slowdive. If not, it will be something else... I liked quite a few albums in 2017, but I can't really tell which is #1.  :oops:

But at least I can assure you I do like The Chameleons.  :)

Slowdive was the best of 2017... saw them like 7 times and looking forward to see them again next month  :smth020

Hi.
I am new here.
As my first order of business, I shall try to highjack this entire thread.
 :roll:
Seriously.
I have compiled into an excel file all of the groups mentioned in this whole thread.
I can't promise it is perfect - you get what you pay for after all...

Wow! Impressing! Welcome to curefans.com!

And in our final installment of tonight's incredibly epic installment of Made-Up-List-Countdown...

...we have the bands all tied at 32nd in our countdown, all of which were chosen by you the voters the public the echo chamber of Cure fans so Legit that we can even find some good songs on their last three albums :lol: oh yeah that Legit... well y'all listed the following artists 7 times...

Green Day
Sex Pistols
Slowdive
The Chameleons
The Fall

Two of my all-time favorites are here - Slowdive and The Chameleons.

I leave you with 3 party trick throw-down challenges...

#1.
Is there anybody here who loved the recent Slowdive album, but somehow preferred anything else as their year-end #1 album? I can't imagine such a thing is possible.

#2.
And is there anybody here who, like me, actually went through the ENTIRE discography of The Fall?
Well, let me be accurate, I only listened to studio albums, but there are a gazillion of them - also I haven't heard the last couple - that deep dive of mine was soooo 2013. The weirdest part of all is that I really enjoy about half the songs on each and every album, and really can't stand about half the songs on each and every album. I know. I got issues. :smth100

#3.
Who here actually doesn't like The Chameleons? :smth064
I don't believe it is possible for Cure fans.
Prove me wrong.
And be prepared to explain yourself.

Ok party people, see you in a couple days for the next part of the countdown!

Cheers

Coming in tied at 37th in our countdown, are bands that were listed 6 times...

Clan Of Xymox
Death Cab For Cutie
Iron Maiden
Mazzy Star
PJ Harvey
Public Image Ltd.
Sonic Youth
The Who

What an intriguing mish-mash. I only remember one good album from Xymox, perhaps I am having a senior moment.

My only favorite here is Death Cab...
...though I actually do like quite a bit from Sonic Youth, so long as its not too funky or angry. :smth059
I really need to listen to PiL more and finally go back and deep dive The Who. :smth051
