Alguns comentários sobre as listas e previsções:

– Como teve cd ruim esse ano…

– Fleet Foxes realmente fez um CD fantástico.

– O segundo do Girl Talk nem tava tão bom assim, O novo do Sigur Ros Idem.

–  Senti falta do El Guincho nas primeiras posições.

– Cd do TV on The Radio ta muito mal cotado, tinha que ta no Top 5.

– Não levo muita consideração nessas revistas, listas verdadeira e boas são a do Pitchfork ( a melhor lista ), Coke machine Glow, Drowned In Sound, StereoGum, Metacritic e Tiny Mixtapes.

Como a grande e mais esperada lista do mundo indie ainda não saiu, a do Pitchfork, vou fazer minhas previsoções dos primeiros lugares:

5 – Vampire Weekend

4 – Deerhunter

3 – No age

2 – El Guincho

1- Tv On The Radio
