Oooh, I'm not a huge fan of that one there.

That's the first list that I've seen without High Violet on it.

What I find really exciting is that 3 might be my favorite of the batch. I didn't care for 2, but it was still OK. 1 has all of my favorites, but the non-singles don't jump out at me much.

I was about to say, a list without High Violet is no list at all. I'm not saying it needs to be at the top, but it should be on every one.

actually, after hearing and reading my way through a bunch of lists from this thread and the dalton thread, i'm more and more convinced that it does need to be #1.

It seems as though critics forgot about the Gaslight Anthem's "American Slang." I know it's difficult to listen to every single album from the year, but they're easily one of the best rock bands going right now.

I've been most disappointed by the lack of Stars on any list I can recall having seen .

I thought that the Stars' album was pretty solid... It's one of the top 25 for me.

Is there anyone else out there other than me who questions why the Black Keys get so much love?

I don't question it because they sound similar to The White Stripes and the The White Stripes get that much love.


Though I question why The White Stripes get so much love

The Stripes shit on the Black Keys.

Way, way, way more personality to the Stripes' music.

Like I was saying earlier. I don't question when such an obviously beloved album gets praise, but there are going to be times when I don't agree.

Icky Thump blows, and they haven't made an album as good as Brothers since 2003. Thankfully, the Stripes could whip up a new album over the weekend that's better, which is probably the most exciting thing about being a fan of theirs.
