LCD Soundsystem, Winehouse Top Village Voice's Pazz and Jop

For those who don't know, the Village Voice Pazz and Jop poll compiles a "best of" list from about 300 critics - including some from Omaha and Lincoln. Top honors this year go to LCD Soundsystem's Sound of Silver with Radiohead's In Rainbows (my pick for album of the year) coming in second.















Here's the Top Ten:
1. LCD Soundsystem - Sound of Silver
2. Radiohead - In Rainbows
3. M.I.A. - Kala
4. Amy Winehouse - Back to Black
5. Arcade Fire - Neon Bible
6. Kanye West - Graduation
7. Spoon - Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga
8. Robert Plant and Alison Krauss - Raising Sand
9. Bruce Springsteen - Magic
10. The National - Boxer


...for those looking for Omaha connections, Bright Eyes' Cassadaga placed 60th, two slots above Britney Spears' Blackout.










Amy Winehouse's "Rehab" gets single of the year, followed by:
2. Rhinna feat. Jay-Z: "Umbrella"
3. LCD Soundsystem: "All My Friends" (my pick for song of the year)
4. Feist: "1,2,3,4"
5. Justice: "D.A.N.C.E."
