I do not know if the list is eligible:
1) It is based on the opinion of critics of the newspaper, but only three people. Perhaps someone in Ireland we could explain something.
2) The list is not Radiohead. I suppose that many ARM (Acclaimers Radiohead Music) will not like this.

If Irish Times is the biggest (or one of the biggest) newspaper in Ireland, I think this list could be eligible, even if there are only three writers behind it.
It's the leading newspaper in Ireland as far as I'm aware.
Irelands biggest paper is the Irish Independant but the Irish Times would be a fairly big paper.
I just got Back to Black from the library yesterday. I've listened to it once; I guess I'll get to see what all the hype is about. I don't recall it fairing as comparatively well on the EOY lists when it came out.
It was. Thank you.
