Rolling Stone the Magazine Officially as Out of Touch as the Rolling Stones

If it wasn’t for David Fricke and Matt Taibbi I would officially cancel my subscription to Rolling Stone. Below is their list of the top 10 albums of 2008. I believe next week we here at RBM will be presenting our 2008 Best Of lists and, spoiler alert, I can say wholeheartedly that none of these albums will appear on my list. Rolling Stone, you done got old.

10 Vampire Weekend – Vampire Weekend
09 Metallica – Death Magnetic
08 Beck – Modern Guilt
07 Coldplay – Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends
06 Santogold – Santogold
05 John Mellencamp – Life, Death, Love and Freedom
04 My Morning Jacket – Evil Urges
03 Lil Wayne – Tha Carter III
02 Bob Dylan – Tell Tale Signs:The Bootleg Series Vol. 8
01 TV on the Radio – Dear Science

    You watch Keith Richards kick back and strum away (drunk, of course) to Johnny Depp and his family at P.J. Clarke’s on the corner of 51st and Lex and tell me those guys are out of touch. Screw any diet or work-out regime, that man makes modern medicine and scientific research obsolete. But as for the list, I must wholeheartedly agree with the Provost Probot, except for Santogold. She’s off the hizzhook. I’m a huge TV on the Radio fan, but Dear Science can’t hold a shamash to Return to Cookie Mountain. How would you frost bitten New Hampshire folks compile the top ten albums this year? Be careful of that Carter fella, he’s like a venereal disease . . . whatever the fuck that is supposed to mean.
