I made a blitz through a whole bunch of the 33 1/3 books earlier this year. Reviews in no particular order of quality: 11: Velvet Underground & Nico : Doesn't stand out in my memory, so it's neither really good or bad. Given the "production quality" of the album, the book did open my e...

Going by your top 100 isn't exactly fair, just because older bans will win in your top playlist just due to volume. I have pretty much every album REM (I firmly believe they stopped recording after Up , so I've got 'em all), Sonic Youth and Yo La Tengo, so stuff like that skews the rankings quite a ...

Word.

New Year's Eve ten years ago I was sick, crashed out on the couch watching TV in the brief waking moments between fever naps.

Just googled it (you can DIY if so inclined), and SFJ's article about the Arcade Fire came out almost exactly two years ago. Maybe late October is sweeps week for music critics or something.

Well, I wasn't name-dropping them without reason. Maybe I'm remembering wrong, but they did actually write a rebuttal to SFJ's anti-indie article, where they listed all their African-American influences. I think they might have been a named target of the original article.

I think it's never a bad thing to get people thinking about, talking about, and defending music. Meh. That's like saying Sarah Palin is vital to get people talking about politics.

I subscribe to the New Yorker, and the only reason to read SFJ's articles is to be ever increasingly astounded at how such an absolute twit can write an article every other week for such an otherwise reputable magazine. He basically alternates articles like this one, where he's trying to make a prov...
