In fact, if we adopt a historian's perspective, 2001 is the real beginning of the 21st century because of 9/11. And the 20th century is often "compacted" to about eighty years (mathematically incongruous, I know) and called "from Sarajevo to Sarajevo": Franz Ferdinand's assassination in 1914 to the siege of the city in 1992.
Actually, what's incongrous is that Franz Ferdinand the Archduke, not the band, was the one assassinated. NOW, I finally found what I was looking for on Metacritic. Want lists? Here are 21 best-of-the-decade lists
and 20 best-of-2019 lists
. Both sets preceded, as you can see, by Metacritic's own calculations. Munch on THAT and report back.
