Hooray for the internet, bringing communities together to bitch about other things on the internet And hooray for me, who, by bitching about said bitching, continues this lemniscate of undeserved anger.

you may not have to wait much longer... http://consequenceofsound.net/2013/04/daft-punk-to-premiere-new-single-on-monday/ but i totally agree. the trailers are a bit unnecessary.

Solid, solid list. My personal favorites are "Heroes" and Young Americans, but Bowie's catalog is so ginormous and diverse that everyone ends up with their own personal (and totally valid) favorite.

any word on if/when the single will have an official physical or digital release? I actually dig the single. I missed Phoenix.

beck's quite possibly my favorite musician of the past twenty years or so, with blur, lcd soundsysyem and the roots. I dig this list. It's kind of impossible to narrow such a diverse catalog down to 10 without disappointing people. Really, someone's picks say more about who's writing it than about the music itself.

solid list. Interesting where Yoshimi was placed--in fact, it's probably my favorite of theirs along with Soft Bulletin. But still, it's great to get a complete look into their catalog, which I really should be diving more into (I'm not all that familiar with their stuff pre-Zaireeka)

I kinda enjoy Let's Dance. It's fun, and "Modern Love" and "Cat People" are solid tracks, even if they don't reach the levels of "Sound and Vision" or "Starman."

January 8, 2013 on David Bowie – “Where Are We Now?” Video & The Next Day Details
Great list. Songs of Love and Hate is easily one of my favorite albums. It's criminally underrated compared to Songs of Leonard Cohen (which, of course, is also a great album). Avalanche is not only his best song but arguably one of the best songs ever written. It gives me goosebumps every time I listen.

Even though I didn't discover this album until a few years after it came out, it was incredibly formative for me during my teenage years, and I consider it one of my most treasured albums. No matter how I felt, I could put this album on and just get lost in its majesty and intricacies.

Great list. I might put "Yet Again" at number one, though. It's an incredibly rich, lush, emotionally resonant piece. Just one man's opinion, though.

Yeah, you're right about that. It does come across as an insincere sort of "shock" piece, and I definitely shouldn't be as annoyed about it as I am. Just felt compelled to get some steam out.

I realize that I should just shrug this off as a totally subjective and downright ignorant list, but it's really getting to me. It's just insulting to music culture. It reminds me of an article published in Men's Fitness where a writer went around Comic-Con and insulted cosplayers who had some weight issues. If you don't like specific music, shut the fuck up and don't write stupid lists about it.

goddamn this album is fantastic. definitely one of the best i've heard this year (so far). 2012 is very quickly turning into a great year for music.

Pleased to Meet Me was my first Replacements album, and it's definitely my favorite (hence my profile name). It's impossible for me to hear "Can't Hardly Wait" and not sing along.

A Tribe Called Quest? Thankfully, there isn't a lot of vitriol there. Probably doesn't deserve to be on the list, but I thought I'd put that out there. Phife's answer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3WfilO9-gug&feature=player_embedded

Great first single, and it feels like a logical next step in the Walkmen's catalog. True, Lisbon had some roughness to it, but songs like Woe is Me sort of predicted an airier, cleaner style.
