Ok so I have been working my way thru Rolling Stones Top 50 Albums of 2008 and #1 is Dear Science, by TV on the Radio and well… I don’t agree. I really want some one to explain to me why this album is so great. It may not be #1 for everyone but its the top 5 on all of the major lists.
I think that 2004’s Desperate Youth, Blood Thirsty Babes is the band at its best. I mean its a really solid album with a really nice tension and texture that slides across all of the tracks. In comparison Dear Science, seems well… mediocre. I mean I still like it but #1? I don’t know what my #1 is yet but i’ll let you know when I do. Has this just been a bad year for music? Or am I missing some thing brilliant about this album?
