Paramores final album may be their best album and possibly one of the better pop albums of the 2010s

8th round selection is .....

after laughter by Paramore. It’s dark, melancholy in a good way. They departed from their pop punk sound for something new. Hayley Williams noted she was struggling with depression during the recording of this album.

songs : Hard times, Fake happy, rose colored boy

NV alias check

Wow, strong agree :wub: :wub: :wub: 

What do you guys think of the Hayley Williams solo album?  I thought it was kind of meh but the band doesn't signify for me.

It's pretty good but After Laughter is the best thing she's ever done by quite a bit IMO. And I saw Paramore when they were a pop-punk teeny bopper band opening for a 90s  band that I'd love to see drafted here, they came a long way

I will add songs and more later so we can make the turn now.   This was one of the harder decisions of the draft so far.  I wanted a couple albums that were a little bit more rocking (assuming harder/metal could slide a little), but there were 3 that I had in mind.  At the end of the day I landed on:

8.xx:  SOUNDGARDEN - SUPERUNKNOWN (1994)

 

The Day I Tried to Live    Just might be my favorite Soundgarden song

Superunknown

 

 

 

As I said in the last draft, 0 chance I would go to an island without my favorite drummer to listen to.   The Aenima pick forced my hand even more, but this is my favorite of their albums.

 

9.01:  TOOL - LATERALUS (2001)

 

The Grudge   - The build up from Maynard's scream at the 7:00 to the buildup of the drums to the Danny drum explosion at the 8min mark until the end of the song gives KP the tingles every time.  

Parabola

KP left his picks with me, he wants to take

The Bob Dylan Christmas Album and ***hole by Gene Simmons

Hd said he would choose the songs but definitely wants Gene’s cover of Firestarter

That would be hell on Earth.   Christmas tunes + Dylan's voice?   Only thing that would make it worse would be reggae Christmas songs sung by Bob Dylan.

There are so many things I have to have here. I'm going with this one because it's probably the only one by this band I would want and I think it's an absolute masterpiece. It's probably my favorite concept album about a modern day New Jersey kid juxtaposed with the Civil ####### War.

9.02 Titus Andronicus - The Monitor (2010)

KP snipe hurts.  This has been a rough two rounds for me.

I was gonna buy an old sansui 9090 reciever off a dude for $500 today.  He flaked out, now wants more money. Vintage audio collecting can be stressful!

I haven't heard this since around the time it came out. I'll have to revisit it.

9.04 - Mitski - Be the Cowboy (2018)

Shes one of the female leads that has led a drastic change in indie rock. 
I remember seeing her at a tiny club in Boston and her performance blew me away.

song : Nobody, Geyser,  Two Slow Dancers

thanks for the quick response - please put the year on these as well - it helps so we don't have to look it separately

Thanks, Binky, for keeping this moving along all day!!

Tomorrow looks gorgeous here, and OH has the day off, so I've taken PTO and we might be venturing into the outdoors.  Actually I took today off, too, but just sat at my computer like a lump trying to beat Binky in entering picks into the spreadsheet.
