Music

Despite new voters recruited from happening young so-called "extreme music" mags, metal albums didn't fare so hot in this year's Pazz & Jop poll: Mastodon's Leviathan finished 60th, followed by Comets on Fire if they count (63), Dungeon if they count (69), Eagles of Death Metal who probably shouldn't count (105), Isis (126), Converge (156), er, the Nirvana box I guess (176), then Velvet Revolver (201), and on and on into the abyss. Optimists might posit that the sheer quantity of not entirely horrible metal records these days works against them in polls like this. Pessimists might add that the inability of most to convey any semblance of a human personality can't help.
