What the judegs have allowed

1. Aw hell yeah!
2. Wish I could say "Broken" but the judges won't allow it. NIN must be represented so it stays.
3. The judges say "Grilfriend."
4. Elvis gets about 6 picks. This is one. "My Aim is True," "This years Model," "Trust," "Spike," and "When I was Cruel." If space allows there are some others, but we can't get greedy.
5. The judges say "Document.'' But they could be wrong.
6. Mmm...young Natalie. *drool*
7. Yes, yes, and yes.
8. Don't ask me what you know is true.
9. All Music says this is a proper album, so it stays. I have always thought it was a Soundtrack thing, but am glad it stays.
10. This however is a compillation. Besides, some of the B-Sides drag it down overall. And I never got over "The Girl Least Likely To" not being on there. The judges say "Viva Hate," "Vauxhaul and I," and space allowing "You Are the Quarry (special edition.)" More room must be made for the Smiths.

In response to #3. If I had to pick one Matt Sweet album I'd probably pick %100 Fun. Girlfriend has 3 brilliant songs (you know which ones) and a couple more good tracks, but the rest of the album is pretty lacklustre. 100% Fun is solid throughout with a few standout tracks, easier to listen to start to finish. In my opinion, of course.

There is also merit in "Altered Beast." But given the time span of his popularity, and impact of his music i can't justify having more than one Matthew Sweet album. That decision may take a while.

My Billy Bragg selection is troubling too. "Life's a Riot..." is properly an EP. Just because you add bonus tracks doesn't really make it an album now. "Back to Baiscs" is the right call, and essential. As is Squeeze's "Singles, 45's & Under." We may have to institute case by case exceptions. And "Broken" I think is a better representation of NIN.

Seems stupid to impose restrictive rules that ultimately hurt the list.
