ok i think i have this a bit more solidified now. not really in order except for the first two:

tyler, the creator
big thief
kendrick lamar
japanese breakfast
alvvays
vince staples
sheer mag
kelela
lcd soundsystem
slowdive
rozwell kid
the courtneys
sza

young thug

i haven't given the new fever ray enough listens yet, but that'll probably make it on too. good year for music!

glad to see i'm not the only one lukewarm on it

there are a few cool sounds (courtesy nidia, etc) but structurally it's... boring? :shrug:
We locked eyes. Apparently if you look at a dog in the eyes and do this, you can hurt its balls. So I did that. And he — we had a moment, and he looked away.

in addition to kendrick, the best hip hop albums i heard this year were:
tyler, the creator - flower boy
vince staples - big fish theory
young thug - btg
future - hndrxx

21 savage's album was ok but much weaker than savage mode imo (haven't listened to without warning yet)

the Future / Young Thug was fine and all but I thought it was a bit slight compared to their other releases

Without Warning is better than Issa but I’m just a big 21 Savage fan in general
