    intriguing list. I would have expected Inspiral Carpets to be here, too, and no St. Vincent, huh?

      On the fence on the St Vincent. a few really great songs, IMO. the tour was off the hook, but the album hasn’t held up for me since it came out. haven’t heard the IC album yet.

    Dear Bruce:

    Great blog, as always. You might consider lowering the load when we come to get your reviews — the home page is kinda’ enormous: http://tools.pingdom.com/fpt/#!/b9NfJu/https://brucew.wordpress.com/author/brucew/ Perhaps break the home page into pieces?

    Cheers, Chris
