NPR: All Songs Considered: The Best of 2004

NPR: All Songs Considered: The Best of 2004

I love this little quote from NPR's list of the top albums of 2004 (the music snob in my likes this list so much better than the iTunes Top 100... egad... most of the music on there is crap, but then again most people buy crap when it comes to music). I believe these are the comments of Jeff Tweedy talking to an interviewer about the latest Wilco album A Ghost is Born.
"I had lots of arguments with people about this record. Most of them went like this: Them: It's so noisy. Me: Yes, but there's some poise within that, like on 'Hummingbird' and 'Handshake Drugs.' Them: The guitars sound deranged. Me: When was the last time you heard such dramatic derangement? Them: The songs seem sorta blasted apart. Me: At a time when so many songs seem prefabbed by some software program, is that such a bad thing?"

If you haven't heard it yet, I recommend Marc Broussard, Carencro.
