#221 - Mos Def - Mathematics
Think The Ecstatic actually turning out to be half-decent, a decade after the only Mos Def solo record i could stomach is one of the most surprising things of recent years. Though to say i’m merely stomaching tracks like this is probably doing Black On Both Sides a huge disservice
#245 - U-God - Turbulence
Almost certainly the worst Wu-Tang affiliate but capable of good moments. Still don’t think I’ve made it through his whole debut album, this is track 2.
#246 - Hood - Hood is Finished
Is apt posting one of the great Leeds artists, going to Live At Leeds today. Less apt is posting one of the most autumnal/wintery songs ever on a sunny April day, but that’s where they’ve come in the list. While Hood undoubtedly were at their best post-2000, the record from which this is taken is where they came into their own for me.
#251 - …And You Will Know Us By The Trail of Dead - Mistakes & Regrets
Sometimes writing a few hundred words and 10.0 score does the job. There are other times when writing lyrics in capitals does a better job.
If I could make a list
Of my mistakes and regrets
I’d put your name on top
And every line after it
IF I COULD MAKE A LIST
OF MY MISTAKES AND REGRETS
I’D PUT YOUR NAME ON TOP
AND EVERY LINE AFTER IT
#254 - The Roots - The Next Movement
There probably isn’t a group or artist in hip-hop more sullied by the types who say “authentic hip hop” but still pretty good right
#256 - Inspectah Deck - Movas & Shakers
Underappreciated in the Wu scheme of things
#265 - Lil’ Wayne - Fuck Tha World
100 down. young weezy <3
#266 - Sigur Rós - Starálfur
on the pretty side of pretty boring
#273 - Le Tigre - Deceptacon
this one goes out to every factually incorrect 00s list.
#284 - Country Teasers - Golden Apples
HEY BANDS TAKE A LESSON FROM THE RECENT ONION ABOUT PAEDOPHILE LOSES INTERST IN VICTIM AFTER BECOMING BORED BY HER MYSPACE DOT COM!RUPERT MURDOCH IS REELING YOU IN DUDES! IF YOU’RE READING THIS IN 2121 AND I WAS WRONG, SORRY ABOUT THAT!
