The Soft Machine: I keep forgetting that Daevid Allen was in the band--but I had NO idea they did 40-minute live versions of f***ing "We Did It Again." Tell me that's the TORTURE I'm thinking that it is?
That is...a very, very high placing (#20) for The Stooges. I thought everyone agreed that the two other Stooges albums blow it out of the water. At least they didn't hate on "We Will Fall."
The Nina Simone album at #5 is probably their gutsiest choice. I know a couple of the songs but am not familiar with the album.
"Femme Fatale sounds like it was recorded in a broom closet" - Oh god no it doesn't.
Thus concludes another Pitchfork list that I don't have the energy to get mad at anymore!
