    Will, where is all this Bon Iver sniping going on? What confuses me most is the number of Bon Iver supporters that share this idea that the artist is somehow being unfairly persecuted. However, his reviews have been nearly unanimously positive across the board. Our Four Takes were even all positive. He seems to be loved by both pop fans and hardened critics alike. So where is the persecution coming from?

    I mean besides Adam

    I should add: I feel pretty lukewarm towards much of the new Bon Iver, personally. As an observer without a lot of stake in the matter though, it seems like Bon Iver fans are rallying against a perceived menace that doesn’t exist

    EDIT: new list at the top.

    Things that are overrated: My ability to locate emails that contain lists that were supposed to be posted. Sorry Zoe!

    Also, I think Jon is calling Justin Vernon the Sarah Palin of music and his fans the “indie music” tea party.

    ARE WE GOING TO LET HIM GET AWAY WITH THAT?!?!?

    I liked Bon Iver on the Kanye record.

    “Unabomber wannabe”? Also, LA is a Bentley city.

  7. Wow….nice to see there’s a decent amount of crossover in our lists. I could’ve gone on for pages & pages.

    that’s how this site usually gets written

    i’m veto-ing any “best album title” list only because i know you all wanted one, and also because my favorite band Coldplay would win hands down.

    My favorite part is that all of the related articles have pictures of animals. Real heavy, serious stuff we have going on. ha.

    I saw you’d pick Polica as best new artist. Maybe I can ask you this, then — WTF is she saying? Did someone slip you a copy of the lyrics? I’ve caught 3 of their shows, and it’s all pops & buzzes to me and everyone I’ve been standing by. Pretty noises, mind you, sure. But someone really needs to childproof Channy’s AutoTune knob.
