Hippies are off-putting.

IWB is a hippie.

You do the math.

I mean, it's fine to not like something, but the statement you're making is kind of off-putting.
he [now a she i'm learning?] said she can't support it which i think is a totally fair statement. i won't support any list that has Come Around Sundown on top.

Spinner's list also allows most of the albums to be streamed in their entirety:

That metal list is one of the better ones I've seen for 2010, the baffling inclusion of Iron Maiden aside. I can totally get behind a list with Agalloch, Alcest, and Enslaved in the top four (haven't heard the Nachtmystium album).

Though it's a shame Drudkh and Deathspell Omega didn't make it. Well, some quarters have taken the Drudkh album very negatively (I just don't understand!), but the Deathspell Omega album is a very surprising omission.

Big difference, if you'd actually read what I'd written.

She was saying that while disregarding a list simply because an album you dislike is placed highly on it is silly, disregarding a list for placing an EXTREMELY well-accepted album highly is ludicrous. I mean, really, what list doesn't have Twisted Fantasy on it? And how many lists are you chopping out at that point? It's just impractical.

Anyway, I found this list interesting:

I've seen that Jamey Johnson record pop up all over the place - never heard of the guy until people started naming him as one of the best of the year. Must check that out.

It's really good. If it were a single album, it would be one of my favorites of the year. But, like Robyn's Body Talk comp, it's too much of a good thing.

YOU SHUT YOUR MOUTH.

Seriously, that was a major pearl-clutching moment for me.

That's my top album of the year.

Don't get me wrong; it'll place highly for me too. Just about every song is good (except We Dance To The Beat, which totally blows), it's just...I wish it weren't so comprehensive.

Yeah, We Dance To the Beat is the one song on all three that I don't like. I was kind of irritated that it made it to the final comp.
