Tell me about it. So, not only does CMG wait until the middle of freakin' MARCH 2010 to unveil their EOD list, but they're going to take probably two full weeks to do it? Really?

Well...

at least it's shortly after. Some sites do decade lists a decade after the decade or more after the decade ends. I agree that doing it 10 at a time at this point is a little silly, though.

Slant will be doing a Best Songs of the 90s list soon (not sure if albums will follow)- of course, Slant wasn't around in late 1999/2000 to do the list then. It's cool to go back, in reverse, and do best-of lists, which is what I hope Slant does.

Re: EOD Cokemachineglow Albums

Looks like the updates might be daily, which is nice:

90. Ricardo Villalobos - Ascho EP
89. Young Jeezy - The Recession
88. AGF - Dance Floor Drachen
87. Perfect - Giddimani
86. Islaja - Ulual Yyy
85. Scott Walker - The Drift
84. David Thomas Broughton - The Complete Guide to Insufficiency
83. Vellela Vellela - The Bay of Biscay
82. Songs: Ohia - Didn't It Rain
81. Joanna Newsom - Ys

So far I'm enjoying this. If there's a site that could rival Tiny Mix Tapes for a decade list that's also an INTERESTING read (not just quick-glance did-they-put-YHF-or-Funeral-higher) I would've said Stylus awhile ago, but it's looking like CMG isn't, like TMT, going to align themselves too closely with their year lists. They usually chalk up their AOTY's as products of circumstance about a year later anyway.

Nice to see two obscure albums I personally wouldn't have on MY decade list if it weren't for them, DTB and Islaja.

If there's a Slant list of best albums get ready to see: Bjork's whole 90's discography, Tori Amos's Little Earthquakes (maybe another album of hers), any album by PJ Harvey released in the 90's and Liz Phair's Exile In Guyville and two or three Ani DiFranco's albums. Hope they add some of these, so they won't have a huge drop next update.

Slant love girls, You go girls!

That'd be awesome! Boys For Pele is so underrated, it's a great album, it takes time to grow on you, but it rewards. And seeing Whitechocolatespaceegg and Whip-Smart are also great and underrated works by Phair. I guess critics overreacted, they were more accessible, not the masterpiece Guyville is, but they were great and deserved a better reception. But i do believe that between Phair and Amos, Tori has a better shot in putting 2 albums inside the list. Little Earthquakes is a lock, but Under The Pink, From The Choirgirl Hotel and Boys For Pele have solid chances of making the list, especially the first two. But so far i'd only trust to see Earthquakes, Guyville, Bjork's Post and Homogenic, PJ Harvey's Rid Of Me or To Bring You My Love (maybe Dry!) and Ani DiFranco's Not A Pretty Girl or Dilate. Sinead O'Connor's I Do No Want What I Haven't Got, Deee-Lite's World Clique and Lauryn's Miseducation also have chances, since they received incredibly positive reviews by the website.

I hope Slant remains true to themselves and don't forget some of these records and artists, although i really want to see a 90's list (we've only seen EOD and EOY for like 4 months!), i don't want to see the average 90's list, some surprises and some different selections, things they usually do, would be great.

I'm Sure...

hr Madgesty also will place on Slant best-of-90s lists. Ray of Light for albums, and possibly a handful of singles.

She's also a lock! And we might even see Erotica, Slant believes that album is very underrated and her finest hour (at least it was what the reviewer said, while reviewing Janet Jackson's The Velvet Rope, another album that could be placed inside the list as well )

Yes. They're so equal opportunity so I hope they put in a Sleater Kinney record and Elastica's debut. Elastica got amazing reviews all over the world and had hit singles but it keeps dropping lower and lower from the acclaimed album list for some reason. Usually britpop albums didn't get much recognition from American critics but Elastica got excellent reviews and even made most Ameican critics' best of 95 EOY. I remember about 10 years ago To Bring You My Love was the 5th most acclaimed album of the entire decade and Miseducation was in the top 10 as well. I don't know why critics tend to overlook women after praising them for so long but it's a shame to see them fall further in the rankings when less deserving male artist or band.

Erotica...

I appreciate the intent behind the album and do enjoy it- but I prefer more melodic Madonna, not as icy a delivery as she had on some of that album. Imagine if Pat Leonard would have worked with her on a track like "In This Life."

Anyhow, based on the site's review for Confessions on a Dance Floor, I'm not expecting to see 2000s Madonna on the coke machineglow list.
