I used to have one of those. I stopped, though.
Meanwhile, I made a list of my top fifty albums back in January.

BTW, I still maintain that Phanan completely deserved to win DI3. His list was incredible, one of the best ever in any tournament.

But then all the live stuff I've heard by him has been really good, so who knows.
He's awesome live, no doubt about it.

I do find Springsteen dull and overwrought much of the time, but I really like The Wild, The Innocent, And The E Street Shuffle. Very good album.

I'm not so sure. Some of it is really brilliant, there's no doubt that. The ending in particular is incredible, perhaps the best anybody's ever submitted.

But then some songs almost make me want to puke. Coldplay? The Postal Service? Radiohead? The White Stripes?

And I have a hard time taking any playlist seriously that features Gorillaz.

See, I really don't like that album. Especially Rosalita. I remember really disliking that song.

What I've always liked about that record is its freewheeling quality, something most Springsteen albums do not possess. I actually have fun listening to it.
