best alternative rock of the year so far -- amazon list

i posted about the hold steady a couple of weeks ago. now i see the music editor of amazon has listed their album as his number one choice for the year. i'm not sure how i feel about that. glad that other people are taking notice of the band, but i i'm also uneasy about being part of mainstream thought. :D as far as the others on the list -- the only album i've heard is sleater-kinney's new one.

every time I like something a little different than everyone else, two days later the radio is playing it non stop and it shoots up the billboard pop charts or what not. I've given up "alternative" because basically, everything is an "alternative" to something... ya know
