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

I really don't understand this thread, but my answer is Xetas -- The Tower, which granted, has absolutely no cultural currency outside music nerd circles (and even within them) but it is rock and it is great.

yeah. whoever said the strokes pissed me off though.

i feel like people put on the rose colored glasses for them pretty heavy now. you can't think of something better than that since 2001? (hint: there's too many to name)

yeah, every song is 10/10 except maybe Everyone Knows.

but for my own classification of rock album i wouldn't put this there.

It seems like that would be divided into 2 eras (college rock from like 83-89 and then indie rock 90-97) but that's an interesting way to look at it and makes me want to throw on Perfect From Now on

great. someone mentioned the daughters 2018 release. also great. warm bodies, CIVIC, sleep, screaming females, breeders, & mind spiders had good to great "rock" albums in 2018. i dont consider it as dead a genre as some on this board do.

did i mention the beths again. i love that thing so much.

i think the thread title was meant to read like "let's argue over what's the last legit great rock album that was relevant to the cultural zeitgeist"

it's probably tame impala cementing rock into a mood/vibe for urban outfitters and background music for whenever a chill bro is introduced in time-based media

i feel like people put on the rose colored glasses for them pretty heavy now. you can't think of something better than that since 2001? (hint: there's too many to name)

I mean most of us were like 16 when that album came out, I assure you we were more excited about it then than we are now.

It doesn't take that long to name pom pom.

So, wait are you saying pom pom answers the question as interpreted by iacus?

Is This It certainly fits the criteria in my mind. maybe turn on the bright lights? Idk.

idk, using the word "great", or evaluative words at all, to describe things while attempting to account for cultural relevance is obviously very difficult.

No I was just answering Grumby's question. I can't answer the question as iacus framed it because I basically can't bear to read about music anymore so I don't know what the state of play is as far as all the meta stuff.
