05.) Avey Tare - Down There
A collection of sounds and meandering synths without a glimmer of structure or meaning.
04.) M.I.A. - Maya
Faux political commentary and complaining over lifeless beats.
03.) Vampire Weekend - Contra
Autotune, out of place references, and a continuation of their love of stealing from Paul Simon's "Graceland". They teach plagiarism at ivy league schools right?
02.) Best Coast - Crazy For You
Weed, Cats, and Boyfriends, oh my! Simple pop melodies with the most atrocious lyrics of 2010. The writing on this album is on the level of a middle school diary.
01.) Salem - King Knight
If an idiot raps in a low voice over horrible synths and beats will anyone care? Apparently so as critics love this record. It's the Jersey Shore of albums. The death of art and culture. And never forget the lyrics:
If you were here too I'd still be me and myself
I don't feel alive say I can't hear myself
I'm far away lost and I don't want help
If you come with me Beth I'll kill myself
That's not myself
That's just my cell
I don't know if you could tell
but I don't need help
I don't know if you noticed
but I have been smokin'
my arm might be broken
I'm so sick of jokin'
I'm sick of your talkin'
