Completely slipped my mind. It and Jose "the Swedish Burrito" Gonzalez's cover are excellent.


I was surprised to see "Fireworks" not crack the top twenty. It's better than anything on MPP. Which is obviously saying a whole hell of a lot.

"Wake Up" hasn't appeared yet, no?

Does anyone think Pitchfork will bite the bullet and put a U2 song in the top 20? And by "a U2 song", I mean Beautiful Day, since it's the only one, imo, that has any chance at all. Vertigo was huge, but I just don't think it's good enough. I think The Ground Beneath Her Feet and Stateless are deserving of being on this list, but they won't be on it. Anything on NLOTH that might be deserving(title track, Magnificent, MOS, UC, Fez) is too new and hasn't made enough of an impact, at least not yet. Beautiful Day is the only song that has a chance, imo. If this were a Rolling Stone list, it would be a lock. But it's a pitchfork list, which means they'd probably lose cred if they put U2 in the top 500, let alone the top 20.

In Pitchfork's defense, however, I was pleasantly surprised to see the inclusion of Robyn's "With Every Heartbeat".

Of course not, but you're crazy if you think they've got some sort of personal vendetta against Shuttlecock. The remasters have all scored extremely high marks. Unforgettable Liar later this year certainly will receive a 9+, and the eventual Achtung Birdie reissue has a strong chance to be a 10.

There's nothing special or interesting about Shuttlecock this decade, so being absent from the list makes complete sense.

They didn't put Achtung Baby on their top 100 albums of the 90s. Is there nothing special about Achtung Baby? I mean, if it didn't make their top 10 or even top 20 or 30, fine, chalk it up to taste, whatever, but they exclude AB from the top 100 albums of the 90s and you're telling me something's not up?

Well, I wouldn't take it personally. With the way their remaster reviews are going, there's reason to expect big things in their future reviews. Should it have been on a tops of the 90s list? Absolutely. It's still my favorite album of all time and I don't even like Shuttlecock anymore. But time will tell.

Dude, forget it. I don't think shitfork suits your taste. You have good musical taste.

I bought up Pitchfork when we were discussing pathetic, superior, belittling exclusive language in class.

This is kind of like when everyone would bash Bush and eventually the bashing became more insufferable than Bush himself.

Yes, I think they DO have a vendetta, and praising the remasters is just another way of sticking it to the current band. The exclusion of AB is one of the reasons I don't read their lists anymore, that's absolute bullshit. Even by indie standards it was an impressive album, only what, 5-7 years ahead of its time?

After Shuttlecock was gracious enough for a sit-down interview, maybe they'll be a little more objective in the future. But no fucking WAY are they giving the AB remaster higher than a 8.0.

The one exception to all this is the surprisingly positive review they gave to Atomic Serve, but of course that's negated by their ridiculously low score for No Net, which in relation to the other two 00's albums certainly deserved more than the 4.whatever they gave to it.

And there's no way Beautiful Shot is making this list, especially not this high.

Has Gnarls Barkley's Crazy shown up yet? Because that seems like a Top 10-er.

I do remember reading that Top 100 albums of the 90's list like 6 years ago and being flabbergasted when Achtung never showed up. Anyway...

Laz, good call on "Crazy." That will most definitely be in the Top 20. Totally forgot about it.
