P&J results are unusually early this year. Nice to see. Torche (31) and Metallica (37) are shockingly high.

R.E.M., Girl Talk, Los Campesinos, No Age, My Morning Jacket all in the top 40? Yuck.
Nice bowl of Crunchy Nut you got here, pretty expensive as I recall.

Guess we can all take back that "Evil Urges isn't rated highly enough to be overrated" talk.

No, it'll be stupid, and we're already doing something stupid.

Not a huge fan of the list, but I'm glad Metallica, R.E.M., Fucked Up, Cut Copy, Byrne & Eno, and Torche made the top 40.

Pretty good list. Refreshing to see Badu in the top 4.
Sorry, I was being pretentious. Please don't mess with my stars.

That shit Coldplay record ahead of Cut Copy, Q-Tip, DBT's, Frightened Rabbit, among many others makes me question humanity. Not surprised, just can't believe so many liked it that high above much more deserving fare.

Another poor list from Pazz and Jop.
Every Sunday morning I wake up
I see you by your dresser doing your make-up
Fluttering a Chinese fan in a Knoxville fashion
All last night you tossed and turned
Your body was hotter than the night Richmond burned
You say you had a bad nightmare about tractor trailers crashing

i thought the list was very interesting. the logical middle ground between NPR and Pitchfork with a little bit more sass their either of those publications. their features are also phenomenal in the way they manage to seem so involved and serious over ridiculous minutia. great, thoughtful pieces though.
