I wrote a few blurbs for the MySpace Top 50. I certainly am not gonna cosign all their selections, but this is definitely the best looking year end list I've ever seen:

haha it took me scrolling down a few entries to realize they did special graphics for each album and that every album on the list didn't have coincidentally similar aesthetics.

now i just have to figure out WHY anyone would do this

<333 whiney's blurbs for the myspace list, which still has some looool moments (circa survive & b.o.b. in the top ten) but is altogether a nice change of pace

still no shortage of arcade fire love, tho ;_;

Rhapsody Best 50 tracks of the year:

http://blog.rhapsody.com/2010/12/boytracks2010.html

Rhapsody Best albums, #31 to 50 (more to come obviously):

http://blog.rhapsody.com/2010/12/boyalbums2010.html

(My picks had some bearing on both the singles and albums lists, but not a lot. And none at all on albums 31 to 50, I guess.)

the love for "power" as a single is O_O

Actually looks like you can now click through at that Rhapsody album link to get to #s 1 through 30. (Fwiw, the two I wrote blurbs about when they came out are not ones I like much.)

So both Rolling Stone and Spin have Jamey Johnson at #5. Sorry, had to point that out.

is that album good? he's not someone I've seen much talk about on ILM

oh they're not horrible graphics or anything, it's just...a lot of effort for not a great deal of point. i'd rather see the actual sleeve in every case.

ZERO decent albums in the top 10 has to be some sort of record

pretty wild that this Kanye record is the first record since, like, Yankee Hotel Foxtrot to really getting the indie sites to agree that the major labels sometimes make records better than we do

i like the kanye album alright but it'd be around my top 25-30 ranking or so -- no way #1

that arcade fire record = zzzzzzzzz

i would listen to the antony, robyn and beach house as i like other stuff by them but haven't yet. of what i have heard they are on a 0% average.

"we"? speak for yourself. indie sites and indie critics are firmly over THERE, far far far from where i locate myself.

I like the Arcade Fire record, but it's pointless to stan for it in the face of conflict. You either dig it or your don't, whatevs.

10 Deerhunter – Halcyon Digest - decent, but not a patch on Cryptograms
09 Wild Nothing – Gemini - havent heard, most likely zzzzz
08 Antony & The Johnsons – Swanlights - not a patch on I Am a Bird Now
07 Vampire Weekend – Contra - zzzzzz
06 Sleigh Bells – Treats - surprisingly decent
05 Robyn – Body Talk - top ten material, A+
04 Sufjan Stevens – The Age Of Adzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
03 Beach House – Teen Dream - zzzzzzzzz
02 Arcade Fire – The Suburbs - zzzzzzzzzzzz
01 Kanye West – My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy - flawed, maybe top 30 material

quality criticism here

this is actually a really good album though

one pretty obvious guy in the obvious (jon /via/ chi 2.0), Wednesday, 8 December 2010 17:17 (4 years ago) Permalink

Me too, but that's faint praise. I'm by no means a big fan. xp

Lightning Is For Babies (Johnny Fever), Wednesday, 8 December 2010 17:17 (4 years ago) Permalink

i'm open to hearing it, i guess, the band name just sounds kinda snoozy

Hey ilxor, can you do a personal rundown for all 50 of Sgum's choices? thanks in advance

Is that what you meant? Do you think that Def Jam is an indie? What? Did those 30 days rob you of coherency?

well, w/ref to what you actually said originally, duhhh, of course they make better music than i do - i don't make music or work for any sort of record label.

They mixed up the track title and audio for the Andrea entry. The text refers to "You Still Got Me."
