My Favorite Day of the Year…

Posted by on February 1 at 15:52 PM

…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….)

Twin Cinema is only about eighty hundred million spots too low. But, whatever.

That's because Twin Cinema is an unmemorable album that's only good in theory.

BTW: The Neko Case CD is equally disappointing. Blech. Boring.

Happiest surprise: The failure of 50 Cent to crack the top 150 or so...

Hey man...sorry I missed the party.

Your pictures are great.

I am here to say hello and you have a great site!

This site is a lot of fun very well designed.

Very interesting and professional site! Good luck!
