It took about 24 hours to realize that Daisy Dares You is totally a 5 or a 6 rather than a 7. The Gil Scott-Heron cover of Robert Johnson really is impressive, but isn’t quite a 10, while Sade’s 10 is definitely merited – one of the stand-out tracks of early 2010. And while Marina’s Hollywood is too problematic to endear itself to me, everything else she’s done is at least an 8.

(Also, I have caved and got a tumblr, if only so I can actually participate in track-backed conversation without having to pull block quotes and hope people read this thing. Anything long form or resembling actual writing will stick around here – we’ll see what the tumblr is actually for once I start using it.)
