I'll take part, although I'm out for a few weeks now. When is the list being assembled?

I decided to hold off on listening to anything else until the album comes out, but if I remember correctly from the live version, there's a repeated melody that is very, very similar to the "Thought...

Holy shit, that was so good. You can really hear how Matty's voice has matured. That song feels like it's right in their sweet spot, halfway between 80s pop and 90s R&B. Got a little bit of a...

Was on at 9, entered my code, selected 2 tickets, and got the "not enough tickets available" message. I guess I'll keep checking to see if more open up?

Waves has some great songs and is pretty cohesive (like all of their albums), which I appreciate. The production doesn't do it any favors, though.

That's around LA, right? I can't quite place it. The lack of high rises makes it tough.

I've just been searching on Tumblr with "The 1975" and "Song Name". Here are some clips:

Wow, just listened to all the Tumblr clips I could find and everything sounds excellent. Definitely got strong vibes of the old songs others mentioned. The clip of The Sound sounded kind of like...

I love the production, the instrumentation, Matty's voice, and the lyrics. I think I'm not getting hooked because it feels a little bit like an 80s cover song rather than an 80s-influenced song....

Guessing people are thinking it feels "pretentious" (ironic, given that type-written manifesto they posted earlier) or think the sentiment is a little cheesy. I dig it, I just love that the band's...

Just saying I get where that person is coming from. Like I said, the songs are different in many ways and I definitely listen to and prefer them for different reasons, but there's a core groove and...

Yeah, "M.O.N.E.Y" and "Talk" are the songs I "defend" the most in conversations and "She Way Out" is hands down my least favorite track from the album and EPs.

I get what they're saying. "Chocolate", "Settle Down", "Girls", and "She Way Out" all share a very similar rhythmic groove. They're obviously different in plenty of other ways, but I mentally group...

Given how strong the influences are, I wonder if it's a matter of which 80s sound you prefer. I love "Talk" and gravitate more towards Peter Gabriel(So era)/Phil Collins than Bowie/Duran Duran, who...

George often gives me a "Heath Ledger in 10 Things I Hate About You" vibe.

Fickle Friends sounds good, but it's less that they sound like The 1975 than that they're part of the wave of bands...

Never heard of these guys, read the review, listened through twice, and bought it. This is a rare cycle for me, so thanks for the heads up, Craig.

That is exactly how I describe this band to other people. They also had another vocalist who sounds more like TDS on the album Chasm; not sure who that is or if they're still in the band.

I get a very strong Explosions in the Sky vibe (circa Take Care) from that first 1:40, especially when the drums come in.

Surprised The Dangerous Summer didn't make it, given how massive that album was on AP. Also thought Explosions in the Sky had a shot because of how influential that album was on the post-rock...

Interesting to see SSCW and DUTG, but not the album that bridges the gap. Any reason why? I think A Boy Named Goo was his lyrical peak and covers the most variety in terms of how the band's sounded...

I'd be willing to write one of these, although I'm not sure anything made it from my list. Maybe The 1975?



I struggled with this one. It was very, very close, but I ultimately decided it wasn't...

No way! I actually recorded the bass parts for this album (http://alignintime.bandcamp.com) with Poorman.

This was way harder than I expected and made me realize how few albums I love enough as a whole to include in a list like this. So many albums that have 3-5 outstanding songs that I couldn't justify...

You're creating a false dichotomy between popular and classical artists. Plenty of popular artists learned a lot about their art in the classroom.

Artistic capability can be developed without...
