Glad to see these guys getting some press, even if it’s just because of Craig Finn.
This is a different mix than the original version that was posted. I’m wondering which one will end up on the album. My vote is for the first one.
I’m not a huge fan of this list, but honestly, his albums are all so good that it really doesn’t matter. XO would be my number 1, for the record.
Unrelated, but has the color hand vs. the rest of Elliott Smith being black and white on the cover of Figure 8 ever bothered anyone else?
This is so good.
Is there going to be a 50 Worst Comments feature?
Nothing from Nashville Skyline?
It’s really interesting to see your guys own personal tastes rather than just another top 50 list. Thanks for sharing!
Also, thanks for putting this in list for so I don’t have to click through 50 pages of a slide show!
In that sense, aren’t most reviews a “premature” evaluation? Very rarely do we get a review of something weeks or months after it’s been released.
And Stereogum has actually been doing mature reviews lately. All of the albums that are turning 10 and 20. You never know what somethings legacy is going to be at the beginning.
This is a really good list, but its missing one of my personal favorites, “July, July!” Hoping I’m not alone.
