PHIL ANSELMO RATES HIS OWN ALBUM IN HIS TOP FIVE OF 2007
In a recent list of musicians’ favorite albums of 2007 published at SMNnews.com, Down’s Phil Anselmo (ex-Pantera, Superjoint Ritual) rated his own release — Down’s Down III: Over the Under — in his Top 5 releases of 2007 list.
Really? I mean Down’s album was in my Top 10 list of 2007 too, but — His own fucking album? Is Anselmo that far gone that he doesn’t realize that Top 5 lists are for, ya know, OTHER bands’ albums? Is he actually that much of an egotist? Or is it possible he only listened to 4 other albums in 2007?
Anselmo’s other four picks, FYI, were Bad Brains’ Build a Nation, The Sursiks’ I Didn’t Know I Was Singing, Terra Diablo’s Deluge Songs, and Darkthrone’s F.O.A.D.
