So. Almost another decade. Yay. Time for lists: things I used to love that social media and listicles have utterly sucked the life out of for me.

Iím not sure if Iím doing anything more than a top 10, but what I want to know is: Are there ANY music sites out there whose lists youíre looking forward to?

Please send recommendations for lists that might be worth viewing.

Thanks or whatever.

Beyond the "best of the decade" matter, it used to be so easy to find top-ten lists of each year by publication on Metacritic. Now I can't for the life of me find those goddamn little lists there - I wonder if the website received some kind of DMCA notice about it and can't show them anymore. If I'm wrong and that section is still on the site, please let me know and dare to call me an idiot who can't follow links properly:

a decade is not like a century that marks the calendar.

a decade can begin and end wherever one chooses.

so the 10s is just the 10 years that begin with 1 (in this context)

2001 is the real beginning of the xxi century, but 1980 was the beginning of the 80s. apples, oranges

one can pick and choose a century or millenia as well. no one doing all these "end of the 2010s" list are mentioning their awareness that it isn't the end of the 2010s.

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.

By the way, when reading all this stuff it's crucial to keep in mind what Robert Christgau says: consensus has consequences. Here's the most recent of those columns I could find after a quick search (it's from 2014, though!):

https://www.robertchristgau.com/xg/bn/2014-01.php

Years go by, trends change, records nobody in their right mind considered bitchen or relevant may eventually resurface as masterpieces that everybody was too stupid to give more than one spin. And sometimes they're not that obscure, if at all! I keep saying that every time Sam Phillips makes an album it's one of the year's best, but nobody here gives a flying fuck (your loss, mooks). I can guarantee you that Diane Cluck's upcoming album will be gorgeous (I've heard the songs recorded live and she'd have to get hit in the head by a meteorite to ruin them in the studio), but since "wyrd folk" (good LAWD what a dumb tag) ain't where it is anymore, it won't show up on any goddamn list. You know who will be listed, inevitably? Kanye West, whose 2020 LP, Michaelo Ricardo, will consist of praises to Mike Pence over Ray Conniff samples.

Shit, even a band as great and consistent as Wye Oak, praised by everyone and your grandmother just a few years ago, got barely a mention in 2018, even though they made one of their best, The Loudest I Call, The Faster It Runs. To a degree, this isn't unlike, say, the Golden Globes, where the critics get smitten with a show; then, regardless of its merits, they move on to the next shiny thing. Hugh Laurie won the award for his performance in the first two seasons of House, but when he and the program reached their quality peak in season three, the vote went to the new kid in town, Jon Hamm.

On the other hand, some universal acclaim is certainly deserved. I do believe Weyes Blood made a phenomenal work that will stand the test of time. Just take these bloody lists with a kilo of salt and try not to choke on it.

You want lists, you get lists.
Here's a list of number 1 hits in the Dutch charts between 2010 and now. Or actually until 2014, because by then they realised that nobody gave a fuck.

Great posts soup!

As for music websites, I only give a shit about Brainwashed and TMT. Those are the only sites I'm aware of that truly dig deep into obscure avant music i like. Yeah yeah the Wire blah but it's stupid expensive.

Didnít think I needed to clarify this, but this is for Jan. 1, 2010-Dec. 31, 2019. Aka the 2010s.

There was another website/zine that used to have a fan base on SYG. I can’t remember the name of it for the life of me, but it was the kind of site that put Oren Ambarchi and Jefre Cantu-Ledesma and Emeralds and stuff on year-end lists... like the most widely known entry would be Swans or something.

Anyway, does anyone know what I’m talking about?
Don’t remember the name because I’m not cool, and I don’t have time to scour the boards for it, but it was like white text on a black background? Mostly text-based. Always had really good lists.
