Nice to see Fito Páez included!

I need I say I say I need the new Mon Laferte rekkid. Also the Latin Dead and Iris Dement

I like the Jessie Ware record….

Any best of 2023 list that doesn't include The Hives - "The Death Of Randy Fitzsimmons" is bunk

I'm currently relistening to a bunch of stuff and hopefully will have a top 20 bunk list to post here before I leave for Puerto Rico.

or Cave World by Viagra Boys


and I'm sad to agree Olivia Rodrigo's GUTS is one of the best of the year too


I have heard so few of those albums or the artists on that list, will have to do some homework

Actually a pretty decent music year for those of us who are old farts...

The Feelies -- Some Kinda Love (I know, it's a live album of ancient cover songs...but this is stellar. It belongs on here.)
The Damned -- Darkadelic (underrated...not a bad song on it, they just played a few too many at the Fillmore)
Slowdive -- Everything is Alive
Cherry Glazerr -- I Don't Want You Anymore
PJ Harvey -- I Inside the Old Year Dying
Yo La Tengo -- This Stupid World
The Baseball Project -- Grand Salami Time (another greatly underrated LP...a ton of fun)
Drop Nineteens -- Hard Light
The Pretenders -- Relentless (I have to be in the mood for this because it's pretty dour, but still great)
Belle and Sebastian -- Late Developers
The Hives -- The Death of Randy Fitzsimmons
Foo Fighters -- And Here We Are (the Foos at their most vulnerable...and I really do enjoy this one)
Iggy Pop -- Every Loser (silly, not his best, but come on...it's Iggy and he's still kicking)
Everything But the Girl -- Fuse
Depeche Mode -- Memento Mori (one of the strongest LPs since Violator...doesn't say much, but it's actually good)
Bethany Cosentino -- Natural Disaster (she's a great songwriter, beautiful harmonies...this deserved more attention than it got)

Best reissues/new compilations:
Replacements -- Tim (Ed Stasium mix)
Heatmiser -- The Music of Heatmiser
Husker Du -- Tonight Longhorn

This list feels less PR driven then most, plus it has actually albums I really enjoyed unlike to show up elsewhere...

this list seems to reflect the boards taste more than any list I've seen

Given that there's a mere one album overlap with my list and given that I'm the only one to post a list do far, I'm going to say lack of evidence of truth to your assertion.
