With the 2007 Idolator Pop Critics Poll results posted, I can finally list my ballot and comments. Looks handsome too, especially the artists' renderings of the winners (James Murphy -- yummz). Since arguing against consensus is useless -- especially if you've contributed to the consensus -- I'll just say that I'm fine with LCD Soundsystem and have come around enough to "Umbrella" so that I don't change it when it's on the radio. Enjoy Matos' fine wrap-up, one of the better Sound of Silver reviews I've read of the (many, many) published this year, and the individidual ballots.

I'll provide the full top twenty. Happy reading:

1. Robert Wyatt - Comicopera
2. Miranda Lambert - Crazy Ex-Girlfriend
3. Arcade Fire - Neon Bible
4. LCD Soundsystem - Sound of Silver
5. Jay-Z - American Gangster
6. M.I.A. - Kala
7. Lil Wayne - Da Drought 3
8. Arctic Monkeys - Favourite Worst Nightmare
9. Roisin Murphy - Overpowered
10. Amerie - Because I Love It
11. Kanye West - Graduation
12. Rilo Kiley - Under the Blacklight
13. Ciara - Promise
14. Robert Plant-Alison Krauss - Raising Sand
15. White Stripes - Icky Thump
16. Against Me! - New Wave
17. Ghostface - The Big Doe Rehab
18. Britney Spears - Blackout
19. Dizzee Rascal - Maths + English
20. Electric Six - I Shall Exterminate Everything Around Me That Restricts Me From Being The Master

Aha--I was wondering why the Dizzee record wasn't on your top ten. Now I know.
