I keep running into debates on which 21st century band has been the best so far. It is a question I cannot escape for it exists in my house, as click-bait I cannot ever avoid, but, most tortuously, in my own head, always and forever, for, inevitably after reading anyone else’s top ten list, I will compile and revise my own list, more or less continuously, awake and asleep, for the next several weeks, and still I never get it right.
To simplify things, I am going to follow the Ben Gibbard approach. I am going to make a bold declaration, publicly-like, put it on the record. In fact, I am going to just re-assert or re-affirm, or wherever it is I am doing here, Ben Gibbard’s own bold declaration made ten days ago. It has been determined.
