Re: Village Voice Pazz & Jop 2011: The Top 100

I like Whokill, but its placement at number 1 is a real shocker for me given PJ Harvey's conquest of most other consensus-based lists this year. I have a feeling that is an album that will not be seen as a good selection in the long run.

I thought Midnight City would have put up a better fight for best single.
