Another the A List


Best-ofs are biased towards marketability, single labels, or any number of other criteria. How then, is one to find out what are truly the best tracks by any band? Simple: ask the fans!

Another the A List provides an ongoing 'Top 50' of the very best Wire tracks—and now also a 'Top 20' solo chart—as determined by your contributions. [NOTE: Contributions currently closed]
