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.
