    Something interesting about these lists is how different critics and the industry/Grammy voters think.

    Adele and Taylor are Grammy darlings, 2 AOTYs each and we don’t see much of them in the lists. 21 and 25 are ignored in almost all of them, while Red is the stand-out for Taylor, even though 1989 was the one which actually won the Grammy.

    Much of those lists are a total joke.

    Pitchfork named Blonde #1. Blonde isn’t even Frank Ocean’s best album, Channel Orange is. Kanye #2, Beyonce #3, Kendrick #4, Fiona Apple #5. Weird as fuck.

    Frank Ocean is overrated asf. “Blonde” was terrible.

    I see most of those lists ignore the Weeknd  Bruno M. Timberlake and Gaga

    in my opinion those artists have some decent songs that should be mentioned on a decade list

    Christ, this Pitchfork albums list

    Putting Sremmlife above The Money Store and Random Access Memories… that’s a no.

    Invasion of Privacy above Oil of Every Pearl’s Un-Insides is just basic-bitch taste

    Also, Be The Cowboy, their 2018 AOTY at 64th place…

    Take Care above Melodrama is just bullshit. Take Care has so much filler it’s outrageous.

    Beyonce self-titled above Lemonade is kinda ridiculous, and above To Pimp A Butterfly is delusional. Yes, let’s pick the album with repeated references to abuse in sexualised contexts (Monica Lewinsky, Tina Turner) as the highest album by a woman lead vocalists. Christ, what fucking brainworms did they get?

    Blonde as the #1 album of the decade is not a terrible take, but not a good one either. I get they were not going to pick MBDTF for a mix of political and cultural reasons. But Blonde is neither obscure enough to be risky nor classic enough to be universally acceptable.

    For Your Consideration:

    Blonde was good but not as good as his debut album Channel Orange. It was awesome.

    I agree, they should’ve get Kendrick album at #1 and Lemonade album instead of self-titled.
