In the top 10 albums that nobody seems to know about but are great albums...
5 James Iha
Ani Difranco is the critics’ choice because she’s a “righteous babe” and has dreads and once ate a girl out. Big whup. She’s Joan Baez on a caffeine bender. Nobody can bear listening to her anymore, but we all still dig James Iha. Now there’s a folkie pop singer with a guitar. The critics totally ignore him because he sounds like an optimistic little boy, but they neglect to note that he made a great record. Nobody mentions how that “I’m in love with a girl from the country. She’s got no money” song is in your head all day every day. Everyone loves The Smashing Pumpkins, too.
