As the double 00's, or the Aughts, or whatever we want to call this decade winds down, them media types are making their lists.
Well, back in 2000, we released a little record called Heartbreaker and hoped it would sell 7500 copies. I bet Ryan we'd sell 20,000. It did better than that and, beyond the vagaries of the retail landscape, it has lasted as an artistic acheivement. As such, several folks are naming it in their BEST OF THE DECADE summaries.
- Paste Magazine puts it at #23 in its Top 50 List
- Emusic has it at #46 on their list
- Uncut Magazine in the UK put it at #9!
