Thanks thepris!

Very US-dominated list. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Re: EOD list: Onion's A.V. club

Glad to see the latest Phoenix on there. I think its really gonna blow up.

Re: EOD list: Onion's A.V. club

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!")

Re: EOD list: Onion's A.V. club

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.

Re: EOD list: Onion's A.V. club

More White Stripes love!

madvillainy!



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.

30 really isn't that bad for the entire decade.

Re: EOD list: Onion's A.V. club

It's a shame that they didn't include Boxer just because they already had Alligator in there. It was doing so well, too.

it's true, but i still thought it would be constant top 10 material like kid a/funeral
