Below you will see the albums ranked in their new order with the original ranking in parentheses. You will also see my original introduction for this list, as well as each original review listed as they were back when first posted. I have put my updated thoughts from March in a lovely shade of lilac.
Everything I added about fun can be said about this record too. It is still as complete of a record I have heard all year. Still listen to it all the time. Mostly on my way home from work when I need to rock out a bit.
Another big gainer on the list. As I wrote 3 months ago, this is a novel of a record. It builds and stories in ways that, I, as a pseudo writer only dream to do. I expect this to keep climbing, slowly, as it is a record that cannot be listened too, too often, without wanting to slip into a depression coma. And that is a very good thing. It is an impactful record.
Songs that hit: Bear. Kettering. Epilogue. Two. Shiva.
The final album to make a big jump. And I think this is probably where it belonged all along, and if I had found the record earlier, it would have been at least this high. Beautiful, deep, introspective record.
Songs that hit: All. Sincerely.
It sounds like standing up too fast. A musical head rush.
