Wow that Paste top 50 is pretty dismal.

Also their description of the She and Him record applies to one song on the record while the rest of it teeters between boring and irritating. Bummer too as Zoey Dechanel and her voice are dreamy as the day is long.

Agreed re: the record and Zooey. I will admit, though, that I've had trouble coming up with a solid Top 10 myself. Still, that isn't what I'd put at the top. It's fine but not stellar.

Have to chuckle at the mid-level inclusion of Lil' Wayne as the lone rap album. Great to see Gentleman Jesse show up at #19 though.
