I essentially agree with these assessments, although I claim to have no list of favorites.

What's up with all the Santogold hype, anyway? I feel like I'm one of the few out there who never got into her music too well.

Good call on Santogold.

But Ed Rec 3?? It is just awful, especially compared to the brilliance of volume 1 and 2.
