01 Okkervil River - The Stage Names
No LCD Soundsystem at all?
Yeah, this is a list I can get behind. "Cease to Begin" - an amazing album and one of my favorites this year, at #2.
Sharon Jones .. what's Back To Black anyway?
My least favorite year-end list so far.
Are there even 50 good albums per year produced?
Yeah, there are 50 good albums in a year produced. Just, you only hear about the lame ones unless you look a bit harder.
Under the Blacklight #20? Pfft. Rilo Kiley should be ashamed to have their name attached to that piece of trash.
Again, Feist really high. #5 Paste Magazine, #1 Amazon, now #5 here. I wouldn't be surprised at all to see it top 20, but top 5 on multiple list surprises me.
Stage Names rocks though.
