let's argue over what's the last legit great rock album

Health insurance rip off lying FDA big bankers buying
Fake computer crashes dining
Cloning while they're multiplying
Fashion shoots with Beck and Hanson
Courtney Love, and Marilyn Manson
You're all fakes
Run to your mansions
Come around
We'll kick your ass in

Can you add the song to your compilation clip of landing sick skateboard tricks?

Rock to me means the lead singer does high kicks or mic twirls, so therefore the answer is always “the latest Guided By Voices album”

Let's just all agree on The Darkness album with "I Believe in A Thing Called Love" on it and call it a thread.

I believe it ranked like 4 or 5 on my end of the year poll. I also don't entirely think of it as a rock album? I considered mentioning it though.

we had a few great rock albums last year... mitski, iceage, u.s. girls, shame, shopping, soccer mommy, yo la tengo

though I'd like some more distance between those before I canonize them

the latest slowdive is probably the most recent "new classic" to me

The top ranking indisputably a 'rock album' on the board's list last year was probably Constant Image by Flasher (which was like 18?)

The Sea and Cake closed the book of rock forever with Jacking The Ball and if you don't agree you weren't really there.

Really liked IDLES last year for rock if that counts as rock.

If we're talking last "classic" album everyone was talking about I'd say probably Strokes or Funeral.

Very confusing to posit a question like "what was the last great legit rock album?", a phrase which implies all sorts of things about the passing of an era, historical timelines, shared cultural knowledge, etc, and then just insisting that it must be whatever the most recent popular rock album was.
(there was a hyperbole)
