'Parallel Lines' Named the Best of Blondie in New Readers' Poll


Thank you to everyone who weighed in last week on your favorite Blondie album. Albumism just released the results, and here they are! I was heartened that my pick, "Plastic Letters," is such a fan favorite. And wasn't surprised that "Eat to the Beat" ranked so high after seeing how my Facebook friends felt about it. That "Pollinator" is regarded the best of the second-generation albums doesn't surprise me either -- it was universally loved when it came out last year -- but that it ranked higher than "AutoAmerican" and the debut did catch me off-guard. I don't give the later albums nearly as much thought as I do the originals. But if you had casually asked me which one is the best before this poll, I'd have probably said "Panic of Girls," which ironically ranked dead last. (What do I know?)
