lcd soundsystem tops idolator poll

Idolator’s second annual critic poll is online, and the results aren’t all that surprising save a couple placements I might quibble. I’m pleasantly surprised to see LCD Soundsystem’s wonderful Sound of Silver top the list. Battles, M.I.A., Spoon & Kanye all squeezed their way into the top 15.

I was shocked at how well Miranda Lambert’s Crazy Ex-Girlfriend did. I knew it was getting lots of love, I didn’t realize it was getting enough love to land it #12.

Da Drought 3 made it to #26, which is crazy to me. A mixtape in the top 30 of a critic poll? Not to say it isn’t deserved, cause it is, it’s just raising my eyebrows a bit.

  1. Well! So, now I must hear your Miranda Lambert thoughts!!

    As I am sure will not surprise you in the least, I am totally, totally, totally in love with Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and I think it’s not just worthy of all the hype and reviews but IS the best thing Nashville has done in a LONG, LONG time. I have this whole blog I’ve been putting off writing about it, but this is inspiring to me! 🙂

    So, lemme have ’em!
