  1. Wow, I guess I can really take my name off the list of power pop fans now. I just don’t get it anymore based on this list.

  2. You don’t like a single artist on the list?

  3. (1.) TODD RUNDGREN – ARENA – ‘Arena’ proves Todd still has a lot of songwriting muscle and performance minded guitar chops. …. (2.) JEFF BECK – LIVE AT RONNIE SCOTT’S JAZZ CLUB – As impressive as any Jeff Beck fan would expect. …. (3.) STEVE WINWOOD – NINE LIVES – This is pop music with soul. Deeper and braver lyrically than anything he’s ever done. …. (4.) WALTER BECKER – CIRCUS MONEY – Becker lives up to his high self imposed standards with this very fine album. …. (5.) GUNS N’ ROSES – CHINESE DEMOCRACY – A great, audacious, unhinged and uncompromising hard – rock record. ….

    (6.) NADA SURF – LUCKY – ‘Lucky’ radiates with the oomph of a solid power pop release. (7.) NICK CAVE & THE BAD SEEDS – DIG!!! LAZARUS DIG!!! – Cave’s sharpest, wittiest, most resolute album in quite some time. …. (8.) DIDO – SAFE TRIP HOME – Comforting, reassuring music that’s quietly powerful. …. (9.) PORTISHEAD – THIRD – ‘Third’ is so consistently strong from start to finish that it vaults right into classic status. …. (10.) BUDDY GUY – SKIN DEEP – ‘Skin Deep’ works as an effective showcase for Buddy’s wild, gnarly guitar. ….

  4. How did you come up with this list? How do bands get points?
