The Onion came out with its list of the year's 25 best albums, and guess which album was the "runaway winner"? The Hold Steady, Boys and Girls in America.
Intriguingly, LCD Soundsystem's, 45:33, came in at No. 21. I really liked their self-titled album last year, and I like the idea that it was written specifically for running to, but does the world really need a 45 minute long song? I'm skeptical.
For Minnesotans, there's also a special Loon State edition, featuring a bunch of bands you've probably never heard of, plus Prince. Mysteriously absent: Tapes 'n Tapes, The Loon.
