Don't know if this has been posted about it before but: https://spotify.me/en. For some reason it only shows data since March 21. And now I regret listening to RYM 1001 on Spotify because they're ruining my results :P

Apparently I listen to positive music, 50% of the artists I listen to fit my most-listened to genre (rock), high energy and 'listen like a fitness enthusiast' lol. My top artist is The Magnetic Fields and my top track is Favored Nations' The Set Up.

I remember listening to Gorecki when I was at my wits end last year. It'd be perfect for Portishead.

My mate told me he went to see Beak (Geoff Barrow) a couple of motnhs ago.

Just reached 4000 music ratings on RYM :) I probably should have made the 4000th one more iconic, or a very long album, but I just wanted to get to that number faster.

Listening to Cosey Fanni Tutti's new album and it's decent if a bit clean overall compared to old stuff.
This track (Heliy) is my favourite. And Moe - cyberpunk done well!

It is a bit early for this, but because my favourite album of 2019 so far is my favourite album of all time, it's safe to do this list now. My favourite album of each year from this decade:

2010: Murmuüre - Murmuüre
2011: Chelsea Wolfe - Ἀποκάλυψις
2012: Andy Stott - Luxury Problems
2013: Культура курения - Некрофилия
2014: Richard Dawson - Nothing Important
2015: Autechre - AE_Live_Brussels_031014
2016: Ian William Craig - Centres
2017: Charli XCX - Number 1 Angel
2018: 核P-Model [Kaku P-Model] - 回=回 (Kai Equal Kai)
2019: The Caretaker - Everywhere at the End of Time

Surprised there's no Death Grips there considering how much I love them.

I only discovered this one this year, even though I've had 10 years to find it, Massive Attack are from my home town and it's got 43 million hits on YT, so is probably one of the most famous songs of the century. I've felt that the post-millennium times have been pretty bleak and identity-less, and struggled to pin them down. I thought this was pretty anthemic for these times.

Love this song, and Hope Sandoval. I don't know about "one of the most famous songs of the century", I don't think that's true, but it probably has a pretty high amount of YouTube views because the song was used as the opening theme for the TV series Luther.

Aha, I saw a some comments in the YouTube comments section about Luther. I've been playing this about 3-4 times a day for a month now, sometimes double figures for a day!

Besides the usage in Luther, Massive Attack songs in general are pretty popular because they were pretty big in the '90s. I remember there was some readers poll for a UK magazine (I think?) that listed "Unfinished Sympathy" as their favorite British song.

Yeah, it really looks legit. Every time I've listened to that incredible album I've somewhat tried to visualise and soak in the atmosphere and feel of the real live concert, and now I guess I can get a bit closer to that.

New Death Grips is their worst so far :( it's not abrasive enough to be a good noise record and the vocals don't really suit it.

I watched them live in Stockholm last month, the performance felt a bit phoned in but then the venue wasn't that great (outdoors).

It's pretty great...though it's pretty hard for me to take an anti-vaxxer seriously I can't deny Gibbs' lyrical skill or Madlib's talent for retro production.

My local girl Little Simz currently has the #3 highest rated album of the year on both Metacritic and RYM. Kendrick Lamar has apparently called her one of the most exciting up-and-coming artists. I don't listen to much hip-hop but I really like this track:

He's less local (Simz grew up 2 miles from me) but yeah he seems good. This clip from Sunday at Glasto has gone viral here, its great:



"Dave" must be the worst artist name ever though, I wonder if it's meant to be ironic?
