    Oscars forum is doing one, so I say why not.

    Metacritic is currently compiling several lists from publication and it’s a nice thing to check out.

    Any other lists?

    Paste magazine posted their year-end lists this week.  Here are the links, along with their top ten songs and albums.  Paste tends to lean way too far toward folk rock bands (Dawes, Middle Brother, etc.) but they’re still fairly decent lists.  I was glad to see my favorite album of the year (M83’s Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming) and it’s never a bad thing to see Bon Iver top a year end list.
