Cracking as an adjective....


Going by P-Forx ratings, Turn On The Bright Lights might crack the top 5. Deservedly so, I might add

They watched the FSU game this weekend and bumped Tallahassee down a hundred spots or so.

That is, indeed, pretty hilarious...if almost impossible to believe.

Either way, I am glad to see that not everybody has forgotten about Cannibal Ox. The 150 range sounds good enough to me. Good-ass record, The Cold Vein. Anybody who wants to convince him- or herself that Pitchfork's taste in hip-hop isn't all bad would do well to check out that jittery, paranoid, cold-as-ice record. Wonderful stuff.

As far as I know, Pitchfork has only granted a perfect 10 to two initial-release albums: Yankee Hotel Foxtrot and Kid A. If Wilco - or Animal Collective for that matter - takes the top spot over Radiohead, I doubt that I will ever read Pitchfork again.

The only two albums I know on that list are Arctic Monkey's and Bloc Party. Both are much lower than I would have expected them to be, but deserving enough. Curious to see what places over the next few days.

That was one of the few hip-hop albums I was glad to see on there. Like you said, great album.

According to a list I just Googled:

Radiohead - Kid A
Radiohead - OK Computer
Bonnie "Prince" Billy - I See a Darkness
The Flaming Lips - The Soft Bulletin
...And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead - Source Tags and Codes
12 Rods - gay? (EP)
Bob Dylan - The Bootleg Series Vol. 4: Bob Dylan Live 1966, The "Royal Albert Hall" Concert 1
Robert Pollard - Relaxation of the Asshole
Amon Tobin - Bricolage
Walt Mink - El Producto
Wilco - Yankee Hotel Foxtrot

Of original album releases. Then there's 45 re-releases that they've given 10.0.

I don't think OK Computer is an original release review. Pitchfork wasn't around in 1997?

Seeing the Dylan concert on there just reminds me that Love & Theft should be on that list, and I could make a very good case for it being THE best album of the decade, even if something like Kid A is more decade-defining.

It certainly deserves the title more than Wank-off Motel Cocktrot.

Miscellaneous comments:

I really need to check out those Jay Reatard and Yeasayer albums.

We Love Life is excellent, but it seems a bit obligatory, much like Amnesiac inevitably making this list at some point.

Tallahassee is too low.

Cryptograms? What the hell?

The Cold Vein was an inspired choice.

Yes, it was. Odelay and Pinkerton were both reviewed back in 1996.

It's not a pride thing. It's not wanting to lend legitimacy to complete stupidity.
