The Wire don't do top tens.It's more of a generic(and democratic) list of records that the people who write for it liked and cherished.True that Sonic Youth always have the mafia backing them on it,though(Rob Young is a huge fan to start with).

they might not do top tens but they are ranked in some way i guess? i remember sonic nurse being listed second (after the albert ayler box set) in 2004 and murray street being top of the list in 2002.

anyway, i haven't heard burial so i guess i'll have to check out what that's all about.

Categorically:NO.I don't understand where you are getting the impression either as The Wire never did traditional top anything.

alright, fine. it's not a top 50 then. i only read the wire occasionally.

i guess i've been getting the impression from the fact that they seem to be ranked in some way... if they aren't then they could at least have listed them alphabetically to avoid confusion. but for some reason they don't. in fact, they often list sonic youth as (one of) the first.

Thanks for the year-end list news.

I have the new Wolf Eyes and Awesome Color and just haven't listened to them yet. I did listen to Erase Errata - Nightlife the other day and it would probably make its way into a revised top 20.

I haven't heard many of the Wire picks.
I have bootlegs for about half of the new Text of Light, so I haven't heard all of it. Haven't heard anything from Chris Corsano, Current 93, or Carla B.
I have never even heard of their number one, Burial.

i'm not sure if this is in the new issue or not (my town hasn't gotten it in yet).

i was at least expecting the new OOIOO, growing, and tv on the radio to go on there. other than those, the list is pretty much what i thought it was gonna be.

generally, the wire doesn't do things by ranking (to my knowledge). usually they just list a bunch of things and leave the ranking up to the reader.

Woo. I agree with their 2nd placed. 'The Drift' definitely one of my records of the year. (And nice to see 'Impeach My Bush' on at least ONE of these lists...)

It made my top twenty, but for all the critical hype I thought it was going to be better.

Also in my top 20:
Scritti Politti and Sonic Youth

Nice, I love Arthur Russell. Haven't listened to his stuff in a while.

Thanks for the list pookie, I was hoping for the latest issue for christmas, I really need something to read for my trip to montreal. I think Altar by Sunn0))) and Boris is much more deserving than Rather Ripped, although RR has a few promising tracks on it, but doesn't impact me as much as Altar does. Pretty good list overall I must say, and I'm glad Excepter made it on there.
