The day Murray Street came out , I listened to it & thought it was a revelation compared to NYC G&F.

That should tell you how low I rate it

crazy

the title track on NYCG+F is one of SY's best songs EVER. Free City Rhymes is also stunning. You may not enjoy it, but to say its "devoid of any ideas" is just wrong. Some excellent guitar work, sometimes really gorgeous, sometimes very eerie. I find it a perfect autumnal album, it has that really mellow, dreamy-yet-sparse sound that I love in the autumn (for whatever reason). The only thing that really lets it down is the lyrics, occasionally.

Bad Moon Rising is one of SY's best albums. Maaaaan.

9. Gorillaz - Gorillaz 7/10
Everything Pitchfork likes in an album is here, yet for some reason they thought that overall, it was just an ok effort. It was genre splicing, combining experimental elements from 13 and Think Tank (receiving a 9.1 and 9.0 respectively).

Haha, Journey found its way in there.


Good list other than that, It's suppossed to be a sort of alternative to the boomer-Rolling Stone/VH1 lists that glorifies the same crap every time, and I think it does a good job.
