Like many people, I love lists and rankings. Since I was a kid, I’ve kept lists in my head of favourite movies, books, songs, colours, people, and so on. I think it comes from pouring over the backs of baseball cards and memorizing stats and trivia.
Here are my favourite CDs so far this year:
Arcade Fire – Funeral
Beck – Guero
Metric – Old World Underground, Where Are You Now?
Wilco – A Ghost is Born
