Re: NME EOY

I must have some crystal ball or something. The Walkmen didn't make the list and NME gave Lisbon a 9 and hell whatta an album it is! I really like the first three tracks and the whole bunch is worthy of critical acclaim and EOY material.

Re: NME EOY

One writer gave the album 9/10. Not all the staff that voted.

Re: NME EOY

Well, the songs list looks better than the albums one. Tightrope is top 3 of the year for sure, and We Used to Wait and Drunk Girls are both top 15 deserving picks. I just don't get why Stylo is considered the best track out of Plastic Beach. Rhinestone Eyes does much more for me.

Re: NME EOY

I agree with your opinion on "Stylo." Same with "Tightrope" - "Cold War" strikes me as the far superior single on that album.
