Let the misery commence! Guess Dan's Top 5 of 2021.


Recommended Posts

Why stop an annoying tradition? Basically, the community tries to "home in" on my top 5 of 2021 and their order.

Since no one will be allowed to travel to or from Australia again... ever... the first prize of a tongue bath from Geoff will have to be done via Zoom again this year.

The contest goes like this:

1. Someone posts their guess in 1,2,3,4,5 order.

2. I reply saying how many of the 5 guessed albums are correct, and also how many are in correct spots (without stating explicitly WHICH ones are correct).

3. Next person guesses based upon prior guesses and my feedback.

4. Only one attempt per person... unless we run out of active members participating.

This year was the most difficult I can recall to choose and rank in recent memory, with more than a few albums entering and exiting my top 5 repeatedly over the last month, let alone the actual ranking. I still don't know that I'm happy with it, but it's done and I ain't changing it.

One can imagine and I would agree that Eskimo Callboy will be in all 5 positions (and a few they made up, cuz they are callboys)...

Could very well be once the album drops this year...

Okay Dan, are you saying the completed 2021 best of lists won't be released until we guess this...

...or is this a stalling tactic?

I just received 2 lists yesterday and am waiting one one last person, and then it takes time for me to format everything, so we're likely several days to a week from the form publishing anyway. I still have to craft some words for my writeup, but the decisions are made.

    • urgh both of those songs are a cheese fest. Hard pass 
    • My CD arrived. Gotta say it is one of the cheapest, shittiest packaging of a cd I have seen. It is just a double panel with a disk (no tray). No booklet, no lyrics, very little info. printed. Terrible artwork (as you can see above). Glad I only paid $17 as it isn't worth more than that presentation wise. Musically I have only listened once so far so will reserve judgement until then. Note - Jack Jones only played on one track, the lead single. But he is touring with the band.
    • Slash - 4 The Midnight - Heroes Thirty Days Out - Thirty Days Out  Journey - Original Album Classics (Journey, Look Into the Future, Next) Every Day Life - American Standard 
    • Brilliant tune... reminds me of prime MSG, to be honest. Maybe a slight 'Anytime' vibe? But a magnificent song.  But the song I've had in my head all week is '100 thousand years.' Man I love that one. I rated this album fairly earlier in the year, but with a bit of a jumbled year of listening I haven't concentrated too much on albums this year. Listening to everything now, and I have to say that this album stood out as one I maybe did not give it's due credit. Those two songs are excellent, and I also like 'Get Away' and 'Crash & Burn' of the rest. Some nice gear on here. 
    • Exactly. Same goes for Sunstorm.
    • They're solid and consistent... just missing a bit of something to make them stand out for me, personally. The album is solid, like their other stuff. 
    • ADV wrote most of the debut. but that was before he burned himself out writing another 4000 songs of course the main problem is it isn't Revolution Saints. If you still want to showcase DC pick some more band members and call it something else but don't pretend its Rev Saints anymore. 
    • I don't have as much disdain for Del Vecchio as some do, but I can't help but feel like this sounds very... generic in an ADV kind of way? It's not that it's a bad song by any means, it's just that I've only listened to it once, but it feels like I've heard it about 300 times because it sounds like so many other songs Del Vecchio has produced. Secondly, since they've outright admitted that Revolution Saints was meant as a vehicle to showcase Castronovo, without Jack Blades and Doug Aldrich, I'm a little puzzled as to why they didn't just make a Deen Castronovo solo record instead. Surely at this point, anyone familiar with Frontiers, melodic rock music and especially Revolution Saints knows who he is.
