Then again apparently my opinions are pretty screwed up (i.e. My opinion of Videotape)

Over here and in the UK, they've had a number one single with Sex on Fire and their album had the second highest first week sales of the year (After Coldplay). So yeah they're overplayed to an annoying extent.

Also it annoys me that they headlined the Main Stage at Oxegen while I had to see Cat Power with less than a thousand people in a much smaller tent, she deserved so much more of a crowd.

I can't believe this album wasn't nominated for Album of the Year.

Most songs that I think are crappy due to overexposure and songs I never liked much at all. Most songs either grow on me or sound worse with more listens.

I mean I have songs I love that I don't listen to much because I really am tired of hearing them, after already hearing them a million times before, but if I go a while without listening to them, they sound much better.

Agreed.

Album Of The Year
  • Alicia Keys - As I Am
  • Coldplay - Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends
  • Lil Wayne - Tha Carter III
  • Metallica - Death Magnetic
  • Robert Plant and Alison Krauss - Raising Sand

Forget the RECESSION; this is why society is doomed.

Oh, okay, I misinterpreted you then.

I run into people everyday who disagree with me more... it's surprisingly more solid for me here, excluding my nemesis.

I think one of the things I found most interesting about things like the Top 100 albums list wasn't the albums I didn't know but the albums I knew that I never really got into that made it. I'm still wondering if I'll ever hear what others do in albums like Velvet Underground & Nico, Surfer Rosa (Even though I've only recently gotten this one) and Revolver

That list ain't no joke, my friend. I got it from MTV.com:

2009 Grammy Noms Revealed ... Probably: Bigger Than The Sound - News Story | Music, Celebrity, Artist News | MTV News

And yes, society is doomed. Miley Cyrus may win a Grammy yet.

The official Grammy site has a different set of Best Album nominees with In Rainbows on there.

GRAMMY.com

And I wonder the same about The Smiths, Kate Bush, Genesis, etc... that's just how life is, mang.

Those 3 you just mentioned are all classics by my standards - just goes to show ya.

All the Grammys are for are to boost record sales. It's the least legit of the major award ceremonies, which is truly saying something.

I'm pretty sure it is a joke. The nominations listed in that MTV article are wayyyy different than the ones on Grammy.com

Not that it really matters but I wonder why they're tossin out bogus information. Buncha honkies.

The one on grammy.com is correct, the noms for that category were announced live on TV and In Rainbows IS nominated for Album of the Year. I'm surprised, but pleased, that they were able to remember back that far and not relegate them to just the Alternative category (in which it is also nominated), as usual. House of Cards is nominated for Best Rock Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocals and Best Rock Song...wouldn't be the song from that album I'd pick, but...

Best New Artist was also announced on TV and the Jonas Brothers are indeed nominated.
