    His voice always sounds slightly flat to me. That doesn't seem like control. To each her own.

    For however boring the list might be, the statistical breakdown is pretty interesting and far more revealing.

    Pemberton (7/18-20) ~ FYF (8/22-23)

    I can't argue with OK Computer and Kid A being that high, hell I ranked them that high as well. But In Rainbows being in the Top 10 is an absolute joke.
    5/15 - Muse - Mayan
    5/23 - Ceremony - Echoplex (?)
    5/26 - Refused - Roxy
    5/27 - Neutral Milk Hotel - Warner Grand (?)
    5/30 - Spoon - Wiltern (?)

    So I haven't looked at this thread til today so this is all news to me so I don't know how the voting worked.

    But apparently there must have been a list of albums to choose from .. but you could also write in albums if you wanted? Because Dig Me Out is listed as one of the top write-in votegetters. Which means it wasn't even on the fucking ballot. Fuck you Pitchfork you are the new Rolling Stone.

    If it wasn't on the ballot, it just means Pitchfork didn't review it when it originally came out and was therefore not in their database.

    You're like the Democrat who didn't vote in Florida in 2000 getting pissed that other people wasted their votes on Nader.

    Tom, Pitchfork loves Sleater Kinney. The three albums they've reviewed have been 8.7 or higher. Two of their albums were in their top 200 albums of the 00's. Settle down.

    Ditto.

    They only have one album so there was no split vote. I mean sure, plenty of people voted for multiple albums per artist but still.

    It's only a lack of control if he's trying to sing on pitch. Precise technical singing isn't always the most emotive, interesting, etc. So, yeah, to each their own.


    EDIT: To be more clear I am saying that I would not be surprised to hear that signing on pitch isn't a high priority for Jeff, that he focuses on other elements of his vocal performance and controls those effectively.

    I didn't start until Friday night so I didn't finish. I think I had ~80 entries but their ranking was not much different from the order in which they were added.

    As many as you're passionate about I'd say. When you start to just feel whatever toward them, cut it off.

    I went to 100, which was their max cut off. They said a minimum of 20, max of 100. The limit made me reconsider some albums.

    And I did put three Radiohead albums on my list. Just not at 1, 2 and 6.

    Not because of Me, I voted and had The Woods #2 for the whole era behind OK Computer...my number one album for the whole 2000s.

    But this list, like any, shows how public polls always skew towards favorite bands as much as favorite albums...ie all the radiohead/Arcade Fire/Animal Collectives albums up top, and then other artists start to make their way in as one moves down the list.

    Remember seeing Britanny Spears Ballot for Rolling Stones last best 500 album's poll...had something like 7 Beatles album's on it. My guess is this poll saw a lot of similar votes cast.

    Obviously still love a lot of the titles on the list...in addition to Sleater-Kinney being shut out, would have loved to see Okkervil River's Black Sheep Boy make the list...an excellent, excellent album that has held up quite well. Forget if Mountain Goats Sunset Tree made it, everytime I hear that thing, I move it up 10 spots in my personal best of decade list...talk about an emotionally impactful album.

    ok so i did this really quickly and probably fucked it up. I decided rather than trying to rank the 'best' I would rank based on how much I feel like I give a shit about the album right this very second.
