Re: Detroit News top 10

As a Detroiter, I would like to apologize for this terrible list.

Re: Detroit News top 10

As an ex-Detroiter, I too would like to apologize for it. Other than Duffy, it's pretty much worthless.


sometimes, yesr-end lists from newspapers and such end up being part of Pazz-N-Jop, so that has to be kept in mind.

RE the albums- Portishead, Lil Wayne and Coldplay have received a lot of acclaim for 2008- some of the others, not much at all.

Re: Detroit News top 10

Yet another list that factors in volume of popularity to increase marketability.

Girl Talk got a pretty good amount of acclaim too.

Re: Detroit News top 10

How do you know they are factoring in popularity?

I can't stand the implication that anything popular can't be good.

Re: Detroit News top 10

Genius often goes unrecognized by the masses. But it's not an iron-clad rule.

That's Not True At All, Though...

that something popular can't be good. Some of the most acclaiemd artists, after all, were/have been very popular.

In the USA, Lil' Wayne, Coldplay and Metallica were the only albums on this list to sell more than 1.5m.

I'm not sure who Girl Talk even is.
