Life is too short to listen to rubbish

The 100 best records of 2008 - Times Online

Nope, not one, not a single one of them do I want to buy, a couple I wouldn't turn off if they came on the wireless, but the rest are an insult to my intelligence. Am I getting old?

9 and 12 from the first set aren't too bad, as for the rest I'm forced to agree with you as to the quality.

Other than the classical albums (most of which I own already, in one form or another), I've never heard of any of 'em. (Oh, wait... REM; okay, I've heard ONE of them, and I don't care much for them either.)

Don't think I've missed too much.

"14 Sigur Ros: Med Sud I Eyrum Vid Spilum Endalaust (EMI) A blissful, devastating album from the Icelandic ambient-rockers, full of sonic sorcery and glacial expanses, and containing, in Inni Mer Syngur Vitleysingur, 2009’s most euphoric pop moment."

Who could say no? It all sounds so catchy...
