Re: Less than 500 songs left in the top 10,000

Had some things pop up where I couldn't really listen to music and keep track, but I'm down to the final 100! Which means I'm in the middle of the 1920s, and I have no idea how I'm going to remember which is which when all these songs are "Something Blues." Hmm... Impressive. I had the sa...

Interesting that Brand New is No. 1 on this list. Did critics know about Jesse Lacey's transgressions back in 2006? I know that's what kept their last album off AM after great initial reviews. I've always liked their music, and Deja Entendu (127 on the list) is one of my favorite albums.
