LCD Soundsystem's Sound of Silver topped the Idolator 2007 Idolator Pop Critics Poll, and now it has won the 35th Annual Pazz & Jop Village Voice one as well. Pitchfork had it at number two. I'm an idiot and never posted my list, but when and if I do, it will also be in my top three.
Amy Winehouse was voted "No. 4 & 19 tracks", "No. 5 Artist", and "No. 5 Album" in Idolator's poll. The Village Voice poll has her at 4th best album, and #1 single. I'm not going to lie. I listened to that album a lot too. It just sucks what has happened to her since it came out - including the crack smoking video that just came out, which is being investigated by the police, and which has apparently (hopefully & luckily) also has her back in rehab.

According to the first two people in line, this is the second wave of fans looking to score a wristband to get into the Paul McCartney in-store. Amoeba staff already sent a group away after giving out the allotted number of wristbands. This photo was taken around 6:30 p.m. Tuesday. Wristbands for the in-store, which is set for 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, were supposed to be handed out starting at 12:30 p.m. Wednesday. The people here are either waiting for another batch of wristbands or plan to sleep on the ground just in case Amoeba decides to let more people inside for the performance.
