J R Van Cleave
Easily one of my ten favorite bands. They have legitimately forty great songs off a discography that’s not even that big, and excluding covers. These are my favorites, but I recognize that there are so many more good ones.

I’m Only Sleeping
Dookie was my second. First was Cranberries, “No Need to Argue;” third was Offspring, “Smash.”
I’m not sure if it’s fair to say Rihanna never takes risks. My wife and I both think that the last Rihanna album is her best; every track is at least interesting. Beyonce is definitely the more creative, interesting artist; Rihanna still puts out an album every year that is at least worth exploring a few times.
As much as I love Watch the Throne, I think that “4″ still wins. Party alone beats most of the stuff put out that year.
My favorite is Kill You, so I’m glad to see it on the list. But seriously, it’s better than the rest on there. Listen again and again until you agree.
IF ONLY someone had all the answers…
Did no one but me really really like the Strokes’ album this year? I’ve listened to it a ton.
Also, Sigur Ros’ Kveikur was probably their 2nd or third best album. It was awesome.
I also couldn’t imagine saying “Put my fist in her like a civil rights sign,” but I’m not an artistic genius.
Why was no one pissed when he said “Eatin’ Asian pussy all I need is sweet n’ sour sauce?”
I guess this means I don’t have to make apologies for liking Burzum anymore.
Kanye IS a trendsetter.
