Have you heard the Algiers debut Hugues? The Underside Of Power was really a big disappointment for me, though admittedly it's been months since I last gave it a shot.

Waters in first place? You mad dog.


Yup, Algiers' debut album was much better than its follow-up

Thank you IanThumbs Up
 
Yes I suppose the talking point is Steven Wilson as always! At one point I wondered if it might not make the list at all! I actually edited my list and included it somewhere about 13 but only really because of Detonation , perhaps the best track of the year and some consolation.
I put Wobbler at about 5 in my list. I absolutely love Magenta - We Are Legend (my number one) but I was pretty much alone in that (only one other collab voted for it)

Nah we all knew Wobbler would take this easily. Probably the finest Yes album since the 70s.

The madness of passing the inevitable SW has happened twice before in recent years: Hand.Cannot.Erase was beaten by Anekdoten's Until All the Ghosts Are Gone in the 2015 list. And in the 2016 list, reached only #88-93.

My #3 in an earlier AotY list (that of 2014) is the one that deserves the title "Finest Yes album since the 70s" (imho, of course). Not because it is finer than Wobbler's latest effort, but because it is more reminiscent of the great Yes years. The title track of Druckfarben's Second Sound is more or less what Yes would sound like if they had maintained their quality and it is on par with the Yes epics of the 70s.

Great job, Ian!

The list I presented, as usual, had only 10 albums. Because I am inherently lazy and have an aversion to long lists....

1. Big Big Train - Grimspound  

2. Wobbler – From Silence to Somewhere 

3. Discipline – Captives of the Dark Wine Sea

4. Bent Knee – Land Animal

5. King Crimson – Live in Chicago

6. Agusa - Agusa 

7. Steven Wilson – To The Bone 

8. Deluge Grander – Oceanarium 

9. David Gilmour – Live at Pompeii 

10. Strawbs – Ferryman’s Curse

Why does this post not stay at the top of the "Top 10s and lists" table of contents like all of the previous year-end lists?

^That would be nice.
There is no act more pretentious and self-indulgent than labeling another's art as pretentious and self-indulgent.
