Good - I've been getting worried I've somehow become a completely blind LCD Soundsystem fanboy. It's just bizarre that the album can rank in the top 3 and the best critics can come up with for songs is Call the Police; yet even this list ranks it higher...


Edit: I checked out the page and it literally ends with "The band’s best track since “All My Friends,” “How Do You Sleep” is that song’s harrowing opposite, a descent into hell in which loneliness is the greatest horror of all."

So what I'm assuming happened is the LCD Soundsystem fan chose How Do You Sleep, and then got out-voted by other critics at the same source with the easier pick.

But seriously, imagine if "Drunk Girls" was the one dominating the 2010 EOY all because it was the lead single...
