My Favorite Day of the Year…
…is TODAY, thanks to the publication of the Village Voice’s annual Pazz & Jop Critics Poll. Yeah, I’m a geek, but I’ve been tracking this shit since I was, like, eleven, and Pazz & Jop day is the closest thing I’ve ever had to a Super Bowl Sunday in my life.
Making the day even sweeter: The completely-expected-but-still-thrilling double-triumph of Sir Kanye West, who follows up last year’s P&J-topping The College Dropout with this year’s P&J-topping Late Registration, making West the first artist to top the poll two years in a row since the Clash’s double-whammy of 1980/81.
(And while London Calling may trump The College Dropout, Late Registration kicks the shit out of Sandinista….)
