Find Me On:
This is awesome.
Or fucking Dylan for Christ sake.
The courage of these ladies is one of the sheer wonders of this world. Pussy Riot: you make me wanna be a better person.
The monogenre bullshit obsession is really such a sad thing to read.
Streaming not allowed for my location. Thanks a lot, Mr. E.
My brain almost froze trying to read that. And when I did, my brain called me stupid.
These guys have been for years so utterly dead to me. And this song reminded me why: they have become so adult, boring, pretentious and predictable.
“but Oberst will almost certainly never be able to prove his own innocence either.”
WHAAATTT? Innocence has to be proven now??????
The song title is the key for the video me thinks. Which makes the “official audio” title so fucking ironic.
Scary Monsters, absolutely.
This was such a great read, nicely written and super informative. BUT, there’s something wrong with most of your links: they replicate the URL of this article.
Nadezhda and Maria are free! Come on Stereogum! Write something about this for Christ sake!
No way XO is better than Boring Angel.
Will I ever get tired of them? Not in this universe, no sir.
Come on now: I like the video!
Congrats for putting two of his christian songs on the list. I’ve been a compulsive and obsessive fan of Dylan for more than two decades and I do find your list absolutely balanced. The only thing really hard to accept for me is the absence of Brownsville Girl.

I’m so happy for Vampire Weekend!!! Yeah!!!
Oh and by the way: Alma Matters is a rewrite of Southpaw B-Side Nobody Loves Us. I mean: listen to both and it’s quite obvious. Two great songs but I personally prefer NLU.
Wow, what a ballsy way to rank Morrisey’s catalogue. But you defended it quite well. Chapeau to that, my friend, Nevertheless, you didn’t convince me that:
- Bona Drag should not only on the list but on the top of it;
- Kill Uncle should be the last on that list;
- Vauxhall & I should be waaay higher. (#2)
But again, nice work. Here’s a list that surprised me and made me think. And in did Southpaw in utterly underrated and would have been #3 on my list.
Do you really think she’s the kind of artist who could make such a huge audience record? I feel that’s unlikely to happen: I think she has still a lot of awesome records in her, but she’s just too bonkers and idiosyncratic to gain such a big audience. Nevertheless, I think that her studio records show a tamed version of all her amazing creativity. Oh St Vincent, such a puzzling beautiful terrifying little genius.
Man. I LOVE the look. It’s bold and suprising coming from her.
St Vincent will probably make one day a crazy record that will be super-divisive and I can’t wait for it because I think she needs to get out of her comfort zone. Thank God, this is one might just be it.
This year all my love goes to Vampire Weekend who has made an absolutely perfect record that makes me think, dance, smile and cry like a little baby.
