I'm wondering if anyone here visits The Quietus web zine, a sort of British Pitchfork with film coverage. They have a feature called Baker's dozen where they get a musician, actor, artist or film director to discuss their 13 favorite albums. Some of the choices can be really interesting. A lot of punk rockers now admitting they secretly love some fairly "uncool" albums they could never have admitted to liking in their youth. Of course there are some artists trying to look cool but I really love that column and I always check out the site every few days to see if there is a new one posted.
If you have seen it what is your opinion of it? If you have never seen it you should check it out. Also, while on their site search for Electric Light Orchestra. There's a hilarious column by an ELO fan/writer about how to pick and choose which ELO albums you should buy. Even if you don't care about ELO it's a good read and fairly tongue in cheek, though he's definately a big fan. It's just that he knows how uncool it is to be an ELO fan at an alt rock/indy web zine. Probably the best argument for ELO I have ever read and I'm no fan.
