Mojo Readers Pick 20 Best Albums Of Magazine’s Lifetime

This is a weird one. Mojo magazine asked its readers to vote for the 20 best albums released during the magazine’s existence. Crazy, right. I’d call that narcissistic, egomaniacal, or just plain ridiculous. I like Mojo. I read the magazine most months. But come on. Why would anyone use the lifetime of a magazine as the context for a best-of list?

Anyway, if you care, here are the winners:

1) The White Stripes, Elephant
2) Arcade Fire, Funeral
3) Bob Dylan, Time Out Of Mind
4) Radiohead, OK Computer
5) The Strokes, Is This It
6) The Flaming Lips, The Soft Bulletin
7) Fleet Foxes, Fleet Foxes
