    Any 2019 music recommendations for me

    Been listening to all year so far: Ryuichi Sakamoto, Haxan Cloak, electronic film scores (Sicario, Bird Box, Social Network, Blade Runner -original-), old Brian Eno, autechre

    Can’t listen to anything busy, percussive, or loud that much since I use music now to help me study or fall asleep.

    2019 has been quite slow for me in terms of music since I haven't had time to listen to new music. I hope I can find time at least for Billie Eillish, Taylor Swift, Tool, Chelsea Wolfe and Keane at least, but I doubt anything will top Within Temptation's Resist, but Tool can come close if all goes as expected. Avril Lavigne and Bring Me the Horizon were both a bit underwhelming, but I didn't want to downgrade the albums too much. As to songs:





    These are my top 4 tracks from Resist, even though I also enjoyed Mad World, In Vain and Trophy Hunter a lot. Worst moments are the lead single The Reckoning (why a feature with Jacoby Shaddix?) and Firelight feat. Jasper Steverlinck (would have been much better only with Sharon singing)



    Really enjoyed these two and also Birdie despite Avril's album not being all that great feeling a bit lifeless and underwritten in places.



    These were my favorites from BMTH's new album, but I also liked Mantra despite the awful robotic voice, as well as Sugar honey ice & tea and heavy metal ft. Rahzel. It's not a great album, but much better than their first 3 studio efforts.


    I'm really looking forward to Tool's album, even more after having listened to Lateralus and Aenima. It's very difficult for the new record to reach the heights of Lateralus. I didn't find Aenima as great as Lateralus, but I only listened to it once.


    In my honest opinion, this is the only great song of the 4 singles that have been released so far, even though I enjoyed bits of The Archer (the other two were just bad songs). I have a suspicion that this new album will not be good, as I feel she is losing the lyrical quality she displayed in much of 1989 (aside from Shake It Off) and all of Speak Now (my favorite album of hers), so I'm a bit worried it will land on the Average or Worst albums.

    I like "The Archer", but hearing this one for the first time now, this damn near blows "Archer" out of the water
