Thoughts? Feelings? Wondering why "Anti" by Rihanna could be considered by anyone to be the TWELFTH best album of the DECADE?

I don't know its.very woke and palatable and can all be easily found if ur only form of music c consumption is listening to the FM radio or buying 45's...BUT WAIT A MINUTE I see some cis-het white men reviewing music not made by other cis-het white men, which only in th at scenario is it wrong!!!! Let's go get our pitchforks (HAHAHAHA) and torches and get them #cancelled my Twitter comr.....oh wait they praised the music, I guess now it's okay. ?


Srsly two 1975 albums? What da fuck?

Hmmm. We now have this discussion in three separate places Razz

I've no major beefs with individual album choices though I was also annoyed to see two 1975 albums in there. Just seems with this one like Pitchfork play it too safe and got too hung up on certain artists. I'm surprised after how good they did with the 60s and 80s lists.

It's hard to figure out how they rank the albums as well. Is it a committee? Do they vote? Do they use Afterhours's criteria for art? I've honestly no clue.

If I remember right, the list was determined by asking readers to list their 10 best albums from the 2010s (that's how they came up with the song list too), so this isn't really "Pitchfork's" list as it is their reader's list.

I'm fine with it. Obviously I disagree with it, but I think there are some great shoutouts in the hundreds, and it was fun to go through the list and remember where I was when I listened to some of these albums like 7-8 years ago

Or actually not that hard if you click on the link. Says they asked staff writers to vote in their favourites and that they then took an epic six months to argue about what goes where Shocked ( with the editors having the final say)

I feel like in these Irony challenged days I need to re-iterate that the above post was a bit of a joke, even if admittedly I'm having a tough time discussing certain albums these days with people who I tend to agree with on social issues, considering I was literally called a misogynist cause I said Lana Del Rey's album was very good if not quite great, despite saying absoluting nothing relating to her gender. As much as I dismiss the whole Anti-SJW/PC tirades unfortunately there are some mildly valid points to be made in the criticisms, despite the icky places they may be coming from.


Anyways, yeah the list is just boring, that's it. Pitchfork is the settled old timers in the Music Blog stage and it both feels extremely safe and a little too try-hard to appeal to what's popular these days... while of course seemingly switching course on albums they praised highly earlier in the decade that aren't as popular these days. It's nothing you can't see looking up Metacritic or main Spotify playlists. Thank u, next

That sums it up quite nicely. It's like 20 most boring people tried to come up with hip n' cool list that should appeal to teenagers

They emailed me a request to do so.

I replied that they should check with Scaruffi first Laughing

Yep. And then the editors at Pitchfork had a six month debate about whether Scaruffi is woke enough to use his criteria for making this list.
