This will be my AOTY, for sure.

It’s ok to love this album. It’s not a guilty pleasure.

Wow this song. It’ll have to settle for being my favourite track of next year.

Frank Ocean – Channel Orange

I’m just looking at all these lists, and there is always a few “controversial” omissions or orders, and it kind of smells like bullshit.

There is always wiggle room for the definitive order of a best songs or best albums list, but to use your website’s influence to try to re-write history under the guise that “music lists are subjective” feels wrong. “My Girls” is one of the best AnCo songs, “Heroin” is one of the best Velvets songs, and “Pablo Honey” is the worst Radiohead album. Everyone knows this. It’s not subjective.

The editors must know that this kind of stuff will cause a shitstorm, so it feels like they publish bogus lists for the page views and comments. It’s a similar mentality to that LA Weekly article a few weeks back about ‘the worst hipster bands’ or whatever.

I really like lists, by the way.

You’re sacrificing integrity for the sake of page views and comments.

Leonard Cohen is the best. Suzanne is my favourite song, by anyone, ever.

The Dead Prez/Two Weeks mash-up is just incredible.

Does California Stars count? Because it should.

A Shot in the Arm is easily a top 5 Wilco song (if not top 3). And A Ghost is Born is vastly underrated.
