1989 is THE greatest album of our time.
See, ask the kids about it, they know. Nikkei, you’re one of those 20-something kids, right? Well, I feel better now. Thanks for this post. Oh wait… I just noticed somebody tagged this thread as, “crap.” Not nice!

To be honest, there’s not much competition in great albums in this decade so far. Let’s wait for what the Stones come up with.May 12, 2016 at 9:30 pm #47211
Yeah, I’m out of touch with a lot of the new music that’s out there. Some people say there’s all this great new music around these days. Well, where is it?
Here’s something good that I just figured out: I can delete the Tags on the threads I start — nice feature.May 12, 2016 at 9:51 pm #47215BreadthParticipant
this may be the best album named 1989 ever. that said, i much prefer 1999 by the little purple one.May 12, 2016 at 10:05 pm #47217
I was really upset when Prince died. For some reason I was more upset than when other musicians have died recently. But I never fully connected with all of Prince’s music. I thought he was an extremely gifted guitar player. From what I’ve been seeing in interviews, from his friends who knew him, he was a super nice person, very charitable and he genuinely cared about other people. I wish he had played in a band. I bet I would’ve been into that. I wish he would have lived a lot longer. I feel like I never fully connected with all of David Bowie’s music. But for some reason Prince’s death was more painful for me than Bowie’s. Anyway, have a good one everybody.May 12, 2016 at 11:14 pm #47222StrongBeachParticipant
I have nothing against Ms. Swift and her ditties. I do not find them quite as catchy as Abba’s, but whose are, really?
As to this being the best record of our time, I would submit in the spirit of “where is the great new music, anyway?” that any of these long-players run rings around 1989:
The Weekend—House of Balloons
Tim Hecker—Ravedeath, 1972
Titus Andronicus—The Monitor
Fiona Apple—Extraordinary Machine
Kendrick Lamar—To Pimp a Butterfly
Kamasi Washington—The Epic
Fever Ray—Fever Ray
Oneohtrix Point Never—Replica
Fuck Buttons—Tarot Sport
LCD Soundsystem—Sound of Silver
Earth—The Bees Made Honey in the Lion’s Skull
Sunn O)))—Monoliths and Dimensions
Jason Isbell—Live from Alabama
Barn Owl—Lost in the Glare
Colin Stetson—New History Warfare V2: Judges
John Doe—A Year in the Wilderness
Robert Plant—Band of Joy
David Bowie—The Next Day
