Aannnd the British piss on Wilco as always.
I wouldn't judge British tastes based on a list compiled by the NME.
The NME is written by complete morons, or serious writers with so little faith in their readership that they feel compelled to write like complete morons. Judging by the level of interest in The Libertines, I'd guess at the former.
I hardly think having Wilco at No. 43 is pissing on them. It's actually extremely high praise when you consider how many of thousands of albums were released during the decade. It's just a list, nothing personal, I'm sure.
The list was not solely voted for by current NME staff, ex-staffers and industry people (including Radiohead, Arctic Monkeys, Vampire Weekend, Glasvegas as well as label bigwigs.)
It's a pretty good list, It sums up what the NME has been about for the past ten years beyond the numbers chasing front covers. If you don't like the NME chances are you you won't like this list.
Two Dancers would look like a favourite for #1 at the end of the year but of course there would have been plenty of people who didn't vote for any 2009 album who will change the shape of the ballot. In early 2000 Travis's The Man Who made Melody Maker's top 100 albums of all times. It was 5th on the year end list for 1999.
Cannot believe Coldplay's 'A Rush Of Blood To The Head' dosen't even make the top 100...this was their #1 album of '02 & 40th best of ALL-TIME in '03!
The absence of any Franz Ferdinand is both a shock and a shame; I guess the extra voting panel didn't see it as meritworthy (wrong)
