Let the arguments begin... part 2

A few things I learned from Pitchfork's "The Top 100 Albums of the Decade's First Half":

1) In the New Pornographers' oeuvre, Mass Romantic out-distances Electric Version, and as Ted Leo albums go, Tyranny of Distance is a better album than Hearts of Oak by 26 spots.
2) Rap albums "drop." A non-rap album doesn't so much "drop", as is recognized "upon its release." Guess ya gotta know your neighborhood.
3) Kid A is the best album of the new millenium.
4) How many am I lucky enough to own? Roughly a fourth. Or 24 percent, to be precise. The former sounds so much more impressive, but still only makes me a quarter cool. So at least I'm doing better than in high school.
