Re: Overlooked Songs 3: 2010s Edition - Round 1, Week 1

Good week. Beach House - Walk in the Park vs. Beach House - Silver Soul This was tough. Teen Dream is filled with solid songs, which is my reasoning/understanding as to why it is one of the most highly acclaimed albums of the decade. "Walk in the Park" has a better hook. Tame Impala - Solitude is Bl...

It was cool to see love for "Halo" on Violator (those synth sounds are so unique). Also Madonna's self-titled is my favorite of hers.
