Just a tidbit I got from Wikipedia (since I don't have that particular issue of Q magazine):

"In 2005, Q magazine included the song "Miami" in a list of "Ten Terrible Records by Great Artists"."

Cheers,

Think how low of a self-esteem you need to have that you need to get validation of what are supposed to be your own opinions, and lower yet when that validation has to come from people you've never met, book editors and music critics and nameless writers on periodicals.

Again, this is not validation for me, but information and education for the newbies to help strengthen or form their opinions.
