captains dead's top 14 records of the year – an addendum

Posted by gregor on Thursday, December 8th, 2011

now, normally i wouldnt make a change to my top records of the year, but while i was compiling it, i made a grave oversight. the sad thing is, is that i listened to the record in question the morning i made my top 14 of the year list. that record is, as if you havent guessed, the deep dark woods’ the place i left behind, which in my opinion is a minor sad bastard masterpiece. i use the term “sad bastard” very loosely, keep in mind. so, without interrupting the continuity too much of my list, i am putting it in at the 3.5 place. unusual i know, but i am no mood to rearrange everything, i think it fills the gap nicely tween the roadside graves’ we can take care of ourselves and richomond fontaine’s the high country. as i stated in my premature top 10 of 2011, pretty much anything in my top 5 or 6 could be my favorite of the year, and this record is no exception.

  1. YES!
    Someone has finally recognized this record! I have only seen this on one Top 10 list this year: @HearYa. It is by far my most played album of the year and when the kids and wife and pets and society in general give me a few spare hours to do a few posts on my own blog, it will be on my top albums of 2011 list. In position 2, though.

    (Position 1 is another future classic that no one has seen fit it list yet.)

    I’m so glad you added yet another album to your list. “The Place I Left Behind” is one of my favorite albums this year, too, and I’m having absolute hell whittling my own list down to ten. Now I feel like I have permission to proceed with a Top Fifteen. Thanks so much for enabling me.

    Based on the albums we have in common, I have a feeling that several you’ve listed that I haven’t yet heard are going to end up in heavy rotation in early 2012. Richmond Fontaine, Roadside Graves, Mount Moriah and Glossary, for example.

      sometimes its hard to put into words what an artists body of work means to you. most of the times you read reviews and its purely methodical. there’s no heart, no past history, just what they’re hearing now. sometimes music is a puzzle, and it doesnt make sense, until you put it all together. thats […]
