This is looking at music over a continuum, so I guess I'm giving U2 a pass, post-1997, and giving other, slightly newer bands the benefit of the doubt. For some reason, this decade has apparently been a lot crueler to Beck than to U2; I couldn't say why...

1) The Beatles
2) U2
3) The Velvet Underground
4) Talking Heads
5) Radiohead
6) Super Furry Animals
7) Depeche Mode
8) The Boss
9) The Hold Steady (can I just lump in Lifter Puller, here, too...?)
10) Beck

Hope this doesn't sound patronizing, but I'm so proud to see that.

You know, I was hunting around You Tube for archival Steely Dan stuff, and stumbled across a Michel Gondry(!)-directed video for one of Donald Fagen's solo songs, which wasn't featured on the Criterion Collection Gondry video compilation DVD for some reason. Must be one of his first videos. It's pretty funny and creative (for 1993), and while it's technically solo Fagen, the song was written with and produced by Walter Becker, so for all practical purposes it's Steely Dan material.

I don't know, Church of Scientology, maybe? Though I liked Sea Change well enough.

This decade was even crueler to R.E.M., in my opinion, and they can't blame it on a cult.

It's been the cruelest most of all to Axl Rose, who's been shooting blanks for, what, almost 15 years now?

I'd love to hear Lance critique the production quality of Aja.

I don't know if there's a better-produced album. Ever. Considering the year it came out, it should sound way more dated than it actually does.
