View Full Version : 2010-2019--Your top ten albums of the '10s

The second decade of the 20th century is almost over. What are your top ten picks? I'm very much a child of the 90's, so my list reflects that.

10. Tori Amos- Native Invader (2017) I've enjoyed most of Tori's later-day albums, some more than others, but her latest was my favorite.

9. Mark Lanegan- Blues Funeral (2012) Love pretty much everything Mark Lanegan has released, but damn, this was my favorite, with Gargoyle being a close second.

8. Smashing Pumpkins- Oceania (2012) A lot of fans write-off anything Billy did after the 90's, but Oceania is up there as one of the Pumpkin's best albums. The tour was incredible, and the live album for Oceania (its played in its entirety) is also outstanding. A surprisingly strong album after the weak Teargarden project.

7. Chris Cornell- Higher Truth (2015) Stylistically, this album reminds me a little bit of Led Zeppelin III. Some of the songs, like "Dead Wishes" are kind of hard to listen to in hindsight, but this reflective, somber album was one of Chris's best solo releases.

6. Singles Soundtrack Deluxe (2017) This soundtrack is not from the 10's, but it was released in 2017, so I'll include it. The original soundtrack is one of my favorite albums ever, and the bonus disc here, with a ton of Cornell material (four unreleased songs, instrumentals), and lots of other gems (Truly, live material, parts of the score), make this one of my favorite releases of the last decade.

5. Slash/Slash (2010) I haven't been super into Slash's solo work with Myles Kennedy, but his first solo album, with Ozzy, Lemmy, Chris Cornell, Kid Rock, etc. is an awesome album. The deluxe edition, with Alice Cooper and others is definitely worth getting--the two discs together are an amazing body-of-work. Easily tied with the first Velvet Revolver album as the best thing Slash did outside of Guns N' Roses.

4. Soundgarden- King Animal (2012) Way better than most reunion albums, SG picked up right where they left off. Some great later-day gems like "By Crooked Steps" and Halfway There."

3. Nine Inch Nails- NTAE/AV/BW (2016-2018) This trilogy is an amazing body-of-work and the roll-out, getting them in installments, was very satisfying.

2. Van Halen- A Different Kind of Truth (2012) Long, long, long suffering Van Halen fans finally got the album we were waiting for since 1984. Dave and Eddie still have an amazing chemistry. ADKOT sounds retro, but with a modern sheen--striking a good balance, with one foot in 1976 (most of the songs date back to then) and the other in 2012.

1. Nine Inch Nails- Hesitation Mark (2013) A very satisfying album after a brief drought. Just a great collection of songs, still listen to it all the time.

Honorable mentions--QOTSA, The Foo Fighters.

It's that special time of our lives again, where not only do we compile our "best of" 2019 lists, but this is an extra special year, because it's the end of a decade and we get to make these "best of" the decade lists.
I'll need some serious time to sit down and do this, but it's been on my list of things to do with best movies, music and video games of the decade.

the decade was much better than the noughties/00's for music, i think Youtube and alternative media played a role in it being much better.

really liked 2010-2015, best phase for music since the early 90s, i cannot beleive how shit the noughties were in comparison, people were more freely exposed to better music in the 2010s therefore made better music.

you cant even compare the dead end stunted noughties/00s to the last 10 years, in every field music has been better.

For me, the seeds for the current wave of awesome music started around 2007-2008 and then in 2009 so much incredible stuff was released inspiring the next decade. The early aughts were definitely weak in comparison.

I'm not even going to rank these because I don't think I can after a certain point. Here's everything in alphabetical order by artist:

Chevelle - The North Corridor (2016)
Deftones - Koi No Yokan (2012)
Nine Inch Nails - Not the Actual Events (2016) / Add Violence (2017) / Bad Witch (2018) [Judging by the first post, I assume this counts as one.]
The Prodigy - No Tourists (2018)
Queens of the Stone Age - ...Like Clockwork (2013)
Russian Circles - Blood Year (2019)
Skinny Puppy - Weapon (2013)
SUMAC - Love in Shadow (2018)
Tool - Fear Inoculum (2019)
Chelsea Wolfe - Hiss Spun (2017)

I even had a hard time narrowing those down. I had all of SUMAC's albums listed at one point, but decided to narrow it down to one per artist (with exception to the trilogy).

Edit: DAMN IT! I FORGOT THOM YORKE'S ANIMA!

It's impossible for me to list only ten albums

This is the truth spoken right here. I tried to do 10 myself... Couldn't do it.
Here's a list of 20. I tried to keep it to 1 per artist... with the exception of NIN's Trilogy, if that counts as 1 or 3? Who knows.

This was way harder than it looks. Doing a best of the year is one thing, but a best of 10 years is no easy feat.

Street Sweeper Social Club - The Ghetto Blaster (2010)
Austra - Feel it Break (2011)
Foo Fighters - wasting light (2011)
Trust - TRST (2012)
David Bowie - The next day (2013)
Ghost - infestissumam (2013)
Eminem - The Marshall Mathers LP 2 (2013)
The Interrupters - The Interrupters (2014)
Lindemann - Skills In Pills (2015)
Marilyn Manson - The Pale Emperor (2015)
Awolnation - Run (2015)
Pup - The Dream Is over (2016)
Skold - The Undoing (2016)
NIN - Not the actual events / Add Violence / BW (2016-2018)
AFI - The Blood Album (2017)
<PIG> - The Gospel (2017)
Priest - The New Flesh (2017)
Dreamcar - Dreamcar (2017)

1.First off, i bet TOOL will be vying for number 2, but, it seems goofy to include it, as the record was released about 59 hours ago.
2.Secondly, 1 album PER ARTIST. (or 2-3 EP/mixtapes.) for instance, I LOOOOOOVED Hesitation Marks. i LOVED the other 2 Old 97's albums, and Earl Sweatshirt albums.
3.while i DID go ahead and try to rank them, i've already had to change it like 5 times. So i guess the order is kind of subject to change, except #1, which is Acidrap by Chance the Rapper. i'm pretty sure that shit saved my life.
4. IMPORTANT: No one gives a fuck what my favorite albums of the decade are, and it DEFINITELY doesn't MATTER. This is key.



Honorable mentions:
Boards of Canada-Tomorrow's Harvest
Tricky- Ununiform
The Breeders- All Nerve
Das Racist -Shut Up, Dude/Sit Down, Man
Run the Jewels-Run the Jewels
Robert Plant- Lullaby and the Ceaseless Roar

12. Joey Badass-1999 (thx @bobbie solo (https://www.echoingthesound.org/community/member.php?u=753) , for this one)

7. Rush-Clockwork Angels
6. HTDA-HTDA EP and An Omen EP
5. Old 97s-Graveyard Whistling

3. NIN-Trilogy
2. David Bowie-Blackstar

Thought I'd give last.fm a shot and see what I listened to the most since 01.01.2010 since that is probably the most un-biased way to list these. In no order:


01 Mark Lanegan - bubblegum / blues funeral
02 Beastmilk - climax
03 Nine Inch Nails - hesitation marks
04 Black Rebel Motorcycle Club - beat the devil's tattoo
05 Daughn Gibson - me moan
06 Rival Sons - great western valkyrie
07 Lana Del Rey - born to die
08 UNKLE - where did the night fall
09 Father John Misty - fear fun
10 The Loranes - trust

This is probably missing alot what I would consider an amazing record for this decade (Bowie, e.g.), but I'm not too surprised by these numbers. Yet I'm really shocked how much I thought is way more recent than it truly is... 10 years went by FAST!!!

Pretty much every artist has a portion of their fanbase write-off later day albums. Hesitant Marks still received excellent reviews.

I agree that the EPs were better overall, but that doesn't mean Hesitation Marks was total dogshit. It might not be the best Nine Inch Nails album, but it didn't need to be in my opinion, and it still holds up. I've probably listened to it more than With Teeth or Pretty Hate Machine since it came out.

As far as it being panned, I think that comes down to the initial gut reaction to the album from some fans more than the actual reaction to it. Reviews were fairly good (not universal praise, but it certainly wasn't panned across the board), and most (level-headed) fans seemed to enjoy it, even if they didn't think it was as essential as The Downward Spiral or The Fragile.

Hesitation Marks wasn't "total dogshit," it was a mixed bag. It started off feeling really inspired and then fizzled out and felt weirdly repetitive, outside of In Two.

Meh. Absolutely loved HM and wouldn't have wanted and don't want a PHM 2.0 or a TDS 2.0. Always keep moving.

It's like old-school Trekies not being into TNG at first. Some fans could never accept Captain Picard, just like some fans couldn't accept the direction Trent took NIN with Hesitation Marks.

I think Ghosts is one of the best things he's put out. The "it's new so I'm scared" point doesn't work against my opinion man, sorry. I also think the EP set is better than Year Zero.

It's not even that controversial, and the worst thing that could happen from fans disliking something is that it would influence the creator.... but I like some stuff more than other stuff, sure.

As others have stated, narrowing the past decade down to only a top ten is extremely difficult (especially limiting it to one album per artist), but I think this is fairly accurate:
(in no particular order)

Ghost – Meliora (2015)

Dr. Dre – Compton (2015)
Queens of the Stone Age – …Like Clockwork (2013)

Jinsai , idk, man.
Ghosts is my least favorite NIN thing. It just doesn't work. I feel like it might have worked better if they'd spent more time on it, but, they didn't.
Of course, there's still a LOT of good stuff on ghosts. It's fucking nin, and, they're still rolling like that.
But, for me, it's nowhere NEAR the best. It's not as good as PHM, WT, Broken, HM, WT, YZ- hell, it's not as good as Fixed.

I still like it alright, though. I guess that's how it works with your favorite band, when they're still rolling.

Edit: the only nin album I like less is the YZ Remix album. That's the only one i really, REALly, disliked

I have to agree with you about Ghosts being bottom of the barrel NIN wise. Instrumentals are OK here and there, but not 2 discs full of them. I can cut Ghosts I-IV down to a nice 10-12 track record that flows better.
There's just too much filler on it.

As for Hesitation, someone else said it best above... It starts out really strong and has some new ideas and then it kind of fizzles out and briefly comes back again, but by that time, it's over. There is a mid section of like 4-5 songs that are just down right terrible. I can cut Hesitation down to a very solid 7 track EP.

I think TR was onto something with these smaller, more digestible blocks of music (The EPs). I wouldn't mind more artists taking this approach if it meant we got like 5-6 songs every year for 3 years rather than 1 giant group of 15 songs every 3 years. I find the EPs kept things interesting. They all sounded different from one another to keep them sounding fresh.

I thought TPD remix ep wasn’t that great either... I’m not really sure, and despite what people might assume I’m not really a mega fan... but you didn’t like Fixed? Fixed was rad! And I guess I liked how Ghosts wasn’t overthought or overproduced. I think Reznor works best on instinct. Still one of the things that sinks With Teeth for me, really. It felt too careful and considered

I thought TPD remix ep wasn’t that great either... I’m not really sure, and despite what people might assume I’m not really a mega fan... but you didn’t like Fixed? Fixed was rad! And I guess I liked how Ghosts wasn’t overthought or overproduced. I think Reznor works best on instinct. Still one of the things that sinks With Teeth for me, really. It felt too careful and consideredto be clear, I fucking LOVED Fixed. Like you probably did, I started out with PHM, Broken, and Fixed. I guess I threw it in that way because it was the weakest, by a hair, of those three. TPD ep goes hard as fuck, if you're into the drums and the bass and such.

I almost didn't put either on the list. I like TND whenever I put it on, but for some reason I just never spent enough time with it for it to click. I don't think Blackstar is a masterpiece, but I absolutely love the title track and video, the album only having 7 tracks means it was easy to listen to multiple times when it came out, and of course, the timing of Bowie's death meant that album was my mourning veil for weeks after the fact.

All of that said, while Blackstar will always have a special place in my heart for that reason, I wouldn't be surprised at all if I end up preferring TND overall once I spend more time with it.

There's a deluxe version of TND out there that has a 2nd disc with like 10 extra songs that never made the original cut, all those songs are just as good, if not better than the final cuts that made the main disc. Scope that version out if you can.

This was HARD. Simply too difficult to narrow this down to a "top ten" for the whole decade, I had to just pick a single, really really good, album for each year (and be utterly ruthless about it):

2010: Autolux — Transit Transit
2011: Gary Numan — Dead Son Rising
2012: El-P — Cancer 4 Cure
2013: Jamie Lidell — Jamie Lidell
2014: TR & AR — Gone Girl o.s.t. (although the closest runner-up was Flying Lotus' You're Dead!)
2015: Natasha Kmeto — Inevitable
2016: David Bowie — ★
2017: Alvvays — Antisocialites
2018: A Place to Bury Strangers — Pinned
2019 (so far): Anderson .Paak — Ventura

I always find myself reading their lists, even though I know they're going to completely ignore genres and overload them with rap/R&B albums. (I'm a fan of rap/R&B too, so that's not meant to be a criticism.) You'd think by now I would have learned my lesson, but alas...

It’s nice they include some great albums like RTJ2, CHVRCHES, m83, Chromatics, Aphex Twin and Arcade Fire but they’re all ranked too low. Then they choose Sleigh Bells’ second worst album instead of Jessica Rabbit or Reign of Terror. They put turd blossoms like Tyler the Creator and The Choad Rips on the list and rank both higher than much better stuff...like, for example, Blackstar by Bowie! Fuck Sufjan. Fuck Kanye. And LOL, those fucking hipsters put Vampire Weekend in the top ten!

And I think anyone who tries to compare what's come before with what exists now will be disappointed, just as people who compared those musicians to what came before them were disappointed. Nostalgia is a hell of a drug.

You're not wrong. There haven't been that many new groups that have had much of an impact. I'd say there's still some great music being made, but most of it is either not in the public eye or completely underground.

Ranker's top artists of all time (https://www.ranker.com/list/greatest-musical-artists-of-all-time/ranker-music) is interesting to look through. Most of the highest-ranking artists are either dead, no longer active, split up, or not making new music anymore. NIN is at #223 (should we do something about this?).

Does there need to be?

To me, music is so varied now that it seems futile to try to narrow it down to fit into the past's perception of how music should be. A lot of musicians aren't concerned with creating the next "Stairway To Heaven" because they want to be known for their own achievements, and sometimes those achievements aren't about making classic hits but about expressing themselves in their own way.

Frankly, I don't listen to Sinatra at all, and I limit my intake of Zeppelin because, while I really like them, I don't want to overexpose myself to their music so I can still enjoy it. Besides that, there's a LOT of music that's come out in the past twenty years that I plan on listening to for the rest of my life, and I'm sure people will be passing on music that's affected them to their children, and their children, and so on and so forth. The idea that anything made in the last twenty years couldn't possibly have legs is, frankly, bullshit. I'd suggest looking past Sinatra and Zeppelin and really getting to the heart of the matter, which is not "Who is making the big hits that are going to be remembered a hundred years from now?", but "Who is making music that is getting within people and taking root and making memories?". The answer is a whole lot of people. You just have to know where to look.

Eh, I can do without listening to these artists. If I'm being honest, I do not like any of these artists. I think there's loads of amazing music being released. Sadly, the mainstream is absolute garbage now. And the times are completely different now, not in the quality of music, but how it is presented. It was a much more focused rollout for artists back in the day. Labels had the key to the door in which you had to go through. It is just not the same, it's so spread out now. There is no focal point in discovering new music. Music magazines are a shadow of their former selves. There is no MTV. The radio is dead and replaced by satellite radio who just play the same music over and over again. Major labels do not take chances anymore and they're not about showing listeners something new, but finding something safe and that sounds familiar enough like the previous thing. Music has beeen turned into an all you can eat, early bird lunch special with a senior citizen's discount pricing for everyone. We devalued music. People stopped actually buying music and the support of these new and upcoming artists has completely disappeared. But yes, there are people making music as good or better than the artists listed above, you're just not going to have a magazine or music channel or award ceremony to tell you how great it is. It is about how YOU feel about the music. The artists about have had decades or centuries of promotion and press and exposure to everyday people. That does not happen anymore. The magazines of today and the Spotifys of today are all hawking the same sterile and safe shit because it is a guarantee to not challenge to the listener and they can shove some BS ad in your face. And we kinda helped create this world by falling in line on the buffet because it is cheap and all you can eat. We didn't want to pay for music anymore and this is the type of world it helped create.

I still don't (and this is just my stupid humble opinion) think that there are any artists from the past 20 years who have put out something like this:


Except for maybe Dr. Dre, I listen to these and don't feel anything. But to each their own, it is just not my type of music. But I can say mainstream rap especially has gone downhill. Honestly, I was never a big rock person, except for bands like Deftones, Nirvana, Aereogramme, Hum, Muse, Radiohead, and a few others. For me, electronic music is my favorite type of music as it is pushing things you can do with sound further. I rather The Prodigy, The Chemical Brothers, Amon Tobin, Lorn, Clark, Nine Inch Nails, Meat Beat Manifesto, Aphex Twin, Jackson And His Computerband, etc. than anyone of the classic music. Now this stuff makes me feel something inside. I was making a list of my top favorite albums of all time and the earliest album was from 1992.

If you're using the Billboard 200 as an indicator for what music is like today, then you are missing out on a LOT of music. That may be an indication of what's selling, but that's not an indication of what's out there.

The idea that music stopped being good twenty/thirty/forty years ago is ridiculous and closed-minded in my opinion. I think it says more about the person who thinks that way than the state of music today. If you've already decided that nothing can ever be as good as the music you've listed, how exactly are you supposed to know if something that good comes along again?

That said, I just don't personally feel that any new act from this century produced anything as good as the artists from the 20th century. I'm just not hearing it. And again, totally my opinion, which is no more valid than anyone else's.

...I just don't personally feel that any new act from this century produced anything as good as the artists from the 20th century. I'm just not hearing it. ...

You're not alone there. It seems that more than just a few people find it hard to plug in to music of this decade. What has been the worst decade for music? In this survey (https://www.statista.com/statistics/354251/worst-decade-music/) 42% said it was this decade.

That could be the same as this poll (https://www.cbsnews.com/news/60-minutes-vanity-fair-music/),

“There's no time like the present...for bad music. Forty-two percent of Americans think that this decade has the worst music compared with the other four most recent decades. Next in order are the 2000s (15 percent), 1990s (13 percent), 1980s (14 percent) and the 1970s (12percent). People of all stripes are in agreement on this one. The 70s had classic rock and disco, the 80s had pop and new wave, the 90s had hip hop, alternative rock and grunge but starting around the turn of the century, Americans seem to feel music has hit a rough patch. Many people are predisposed to feel nostalgia for the music and songs of their youth, but by a wide margin, even today's younger set feels that this decade's music is the worst.”

Another interesting question posed...

“So, in which decade would you jump off your time machine to see a band perform before they lost their famous lead singer? Twenty-two percentwould go back to the 50s to see Buddy Holly chirping with the Crickets, 21 percent would drag themselves back to the 70s to see Freddy Mercury perform with Queen, another 21 percent would venture back to the psychedelic 60s and "experience" Jimi Hendrix first hand, 13 percent would also flash back to the 60s and open the Doors to see Jim Morrison in his prime and 11 percent would travel back to 90s and seek Nirvana in the form of Kurt Cobain. Nine percentwould skip the trip altogether.”

The problem with polls like that is that you don't know what those people have listened to from this decade. How many of those people just have some Spotify algorithm of current hits playing in the background at work and immediately assume it's a good sampling of what music is like today? The truth is that people don't want to seek out things anymore. They want to experience art through osmosis, and if nothing they enjoy passes their way, then they assume there's nothing out there. That's a terrible way to consume music, movies, etc.

Where the fuck do people get time to listen to that much new music, let alone listen to it enough times to actually rank 200 or whatever best albums in order?

I have a job where I'm able to listen to music a good portion of my workday. Even taking that out of the equation, listening to an album every couple days isn't that crazy.

Exactly! There are too many variables to take that poll seriously.

It's not like the 90s. Now, if you want good music, you have to search and dig for it. And there is A LOT more music to go through because there are no gatekeepers anymore. And even when you do find something amazing, it will not have the same impact because you don't have Rolling Stone or Billboard or MTV or the radio or a major label buying promo telling you over and over how amazing it is. It is the landacape of music industry and how people discover that music that has changed, not the quality of music.

Me, I am constantly searching for and looking for new music because it feels wrong if I'm not doing that. A Spotify or YouTube algorithm ain't going to help you.

P.S. Paying $10 a month to have access to everything is not supporting artists. And god forbid a streaming services tries to charge $20, it disgusts and disheartens me to see the reactions of people in that case and their pure greediness comes out in the vile shit they say, like how dare you charge $20 and possibly give artists more money. To be honest, seeing what the music landscape has become, I put more of the blame on the listener/consumer than the music industry itself. Most do not care about supporting the music they claim to love. They just want a cheap all you can eat buffet.

Well, that's something to think about. It is truly unfortunate if the advanced technology of the current decade somehow makes it far more difficult and time consuming for the average listener to discover and connect to the masterpieces of the current era, than had ever been the case in the past.

Sure. I'll keep it in the controversial or Sinatra thread. In the context of this thread I brought him up as an example of a 20th century artist (along with several others) as compared to music from this century. But I won't bring him up again in this (or other) thread(s).

On another note, STP, against all odds, released a pretty awesome album this decade. Thought they died with Weiland, but their last album was pretty awesome.

Okay, how did we manage to derail a basic LIST thread?

My list is mostly from the first half of the decade because I've mostly lost track of what's been current for the last few years. Even when some albums are new, I sometimes don't get around to listening to them or only listen to them once or twice then forget about them (though some exceptions do apply).

No particular order:

Opeth - Pale Communion (2014)
Steven Wilson - The Raven That Refused To Sing (2013) or Hand.Cannot.Erase (2015)
Nine Inch Nails - Hesitation Marks (2013)
David Bowie - The Next Day (2013) or Blackstar (2016) (I actually prefer TND, but Blackstar seems to get more love because it was released just days before he died. They're both his best ones since the early 80s, though.)
Arcade Fire - The Suburbs (2010) or Reflektor (2013) (Everything Now [2017] also has some songs I really like, but also a bunch of filler tracks in the middle.)
Marilyn Manson - The Pale Emperor (2015) (Definitely one of his better post-90s albums)
Enslaved - RIITIIR (2012) (I've mostly lost track of what's current in metal, especially extreme metal, which is probably why the first metal album on the list is the seventh entry).
Agalloch - Marrow Of The Spirit (2010)
Jesu - Everyday I Get Closer To The Light From Which I Came (2013)
Sunn O))) - Life Metal (2019)

Picking the last album on the list was a bit hard, limiting the list to just ten entries is even harder.

I would want to go back to the late 80s/early 90s over in the UK to experience the second summer of love and the rave scene. The 90s electronic music will always be my favorite era, so much great and unique artists.

no order....let's see..

1-Final- Infinite Guitar 4 (2013 ..ambient masterpiece, with just a guitar used, though in many cases you wouldn't know that. some long ones on this one, including a nearly hour long track)
2-White Static Demon- The Poisoned Tape (2013 industrial noise masterpiece. wish he released more but it seems the project ended with this album)
3-Council Estate Electronics- Arktika (2016 deeeep heavy low end ambient/techno/dub...though I can interchange this with their album LongMeadow, a freeform beatless noise album from 2013)
4-Oophoi- Time Fragments Vol 1 (2011..my all time favorite ambient artist, we lost him in 2013. so much good material from him this decade, some released after his death)
5-NIN-Trilogy (2016-2018)
6-The Orb-Chill Out World (2016..mostly or all beatless, a return to the early 91-92 sound in many cases)
7-Primal Scream- Give Out But Don't Give Up (Original Memphis Recordings 2018. a down south rock n soul (a genre I typically don't like) masterpiece, recorded in 93 but scrapped for a more commercial sounding release in 94. RIP Throb :( )
8-One Dove- Moon Angel/Morning Dove Red (unreleased second album 2017. recorded 93-96. ok, so this was unofficially released on Youtube but it's made my list because One Dove's one and only record is one of my favorites of all time)
9-Brian Eno- Neroli/New Space Music (2014...Neroli is a reissue of a 1993 album while New Space Music is a new song/album, beautiful ambient track)
10-Zonal-Wrecked (2019..this one just came out and it's already on the list. industrial/noisy trip hop dub. not the biggest fan of the MC on half the album but man oh man is the music just flat out sick. Techno Animal's spiritual successor)

seems that Justin Broadrick may have been my favorite musician of the decade then, since his stuff dominates my list. here are some honorable mentions:
all TR/AR scores
JK Flesh- New Horizon (2018)
Prince- Originals (2019)
Jesu- Ascension (2011)
Amon Tobin- Long Stories (2019)
The Bug-Angels & Devils (2014)
Faith No More-Sol Invicitus (2015)
Orbital- Monsters Exist (2018)
Lush- Blind Spot (2016)
Moon Duo- Occult Architecture vol 1&2 (2017) EXCELLENT combination of a band like Suicide mixed with psychedelic guitar work
Wooden Shijps- V (2018)
St. Vincent- Masseduction (2017)
Mark Lanegan- Blues Funeral (2012)
Novella- Change of State (2017) Silver Apples/shoe gaze sound
Enigma- Fall of a Rebel Angel (2017) a masterpiece IMO

However, no NIN at all???? Manson gets 2 records and Not a single NIN record anywhere here. Pretty good list over all aside from the NIN snub. APC, Puscifer, QOTSA, Bowie, Foo Fighters, Deftones...
