Remember the time before you discovered you could find any and all music on the internet and I could actually keep up with your music?...That was awesome.

Remember the time when a top ten list actually implied that something had been narrowed down and wasn't then followed up with honorable mentions that include every other possible contender in the entire field?...That was awesome.

Just kidding - I had tomake fun of your list because, the truth is, I don't even recognize half this stuff.

Good list but come-on! Camera Obscura CLEARLY a 12B if not 11a? AND the Dodos at the 9 spot? They are obviously top 8.

AND finally...are you against A Capella or just Mr. Folds? Did you see what he is wearing in the pictures on his website. That alone should land him top 5. AND the lead on Selfless Cold and Composed....haunting...
