Almost Time For The Year-End List. (Still waiting for some good records to come out.)
2014 was not a great year for me musically. To be clear, I listened to some of the most amazing music in 2014, it's just that most of it was recorded before 1980. As I piece together my "Best Of 2014" list, I noticed that I really only loved about seven records on the list. There are three I liked very much and just too many others that left an Alvy Singer frozen smile on my face. One or two actually made me angry. (I'm talking to you, Lucinda!)
It's the never-ending debate over how things ain't what they used to be. I am guilty of "get off my lawn" syndrome, but I do not think I am overreacting. As another year comes to a close, I am again disappointed in what passes for great. (I'm talking to you, War On Drugs!)
I will get my list up soon, but until then, if anyone would like to share their best and worst of the year, leave it in the comments and I will post it over the next week or two.
