Re: The Telegraph (UK)- 100 Greatest Songs of All Time

Okay, can someone clarify to me about when a single critic list is eligible for AM? It seems the answer is "only when it's in a published book" but then what explains this list's inclusion?

MBDTF wasn't an their 2010 EOY list either, so if Kanye's being punished for anything, it's probably something that went on long before he went crazy for 45. Or, more likely, these guys just don't like the album that much.
