Very US-dominated list. Not that there's anything wrong with that.
Glad to see the latest Phoenix on there. I think its really gonna blow up.
Any list that has SEPARATION SUNDAY at #6 is OK with me. That album completely blew me away when I first heard it, and continues to do so; the Hold Steady's two subsequent albums may be ranked higher - and don't get me wrong, I really like both of them, too - but when the dust settles I believe it's going to be SS that defines the band's legacy. ("Tramps like us ... and we like tramps!")
Not sure why, but that list doesn't seem to fit what I thought was the Onion AV club's personality. But I tend to like their reviews, so this one might be a good one to mine for some stuff I haven't heard.
More White Stripes love!
i don't know why Illinois isn't fairing better in these EOD lists. it seemed clear to me that it belonged far more up there, guess not to critics. silly critics.
It's a shame that they didn't include Boxer just because they already had Alligator in there. It was doing so well, too.
