    That Uproxx’s specific genre decade-end lists are created to rank albums that didn’t make it into the main best albums list. But imagine putting Katy/1D/Charli Puth higher than Janelle 💩💩

    Still weird. If you put a genre best list, obviously you should put from main list, not from unseededs.

    These rankings are super annoying.

    1. The decade hasn’t even ended yet so what’s the point?
    2. Obviously obscurity is the top criteria in order to do well on these lists. If “Red” won AOTY it would not show up on these rankings. If “21” was a quarter of the success it had been, and had not won AOTY, it would have appeared on these rankings. Basically: whatever’s popular or celebrated is out of the list, whatever is under-appreciated or obscure makes it in. It’s so transparent.
    3. They’re not even consistent with some of the past rankings from the same publication.

    Patiently waiting for a magazine or website to show some courage and make some inspired and original picks. It’s probably going to be The Quietus…

    Pitchfork is really trying hard to forget that 9.2 and Best New Music they gave Sun Kil Moon’s “Benji,” huh

    So another possible decade-end lists will be revealed next week by Q Magazine?

    Or the albums are not good enough. Beyonce is not obscure yet is everywhere on lists. I wonder why?

    She lost AOTY three times, and doesn’t sell as well as her contemporaries. I legitimately think the way these rankings operate is: whatever’s popular or celebrated is out of the list, whatever is under-appreciated or obscure makes it in.

    Anyway, even if my theory is wrong, there is no doubt the critics have a hard on for Beyonce. They’ve thrown acclaim at all of her recent trash.

    it’s not wrong what you’re suggesting, but it’s not so much a technicality as it is a collective, potentially unconscious mindset amongst writers. musical journalism is at its core a form of consumer guide, why tell people to buy 21 when every other person on the planet has a copy

    I wonder what do Pitchfork and its users have anything against Adele? Two massive-selling AOTY-winning albums of Adele are nowhere to be found in their users’ top 50 albums, nor any of her songs. In fact, no AOTY winner appears in the users’ list except for The Suburbs (#9) which is understandable and 1989.

    Like there are so many artists to be nominate 3 times. And sales are fine. Who sells more except Adele and Taylor??? But we will see how your fave sells after 20 years.

    Pitchfork (and their users) is not a sales chart and it is not the Grammys. They are not obligated to pick the same albums.

    However, this is the Top 10 of the pitchfork users poll.

    1. Kanye West: My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy
    2. Kendrick Lamar: To Pimp a Butterfly
    3. Frank Ocean: Blonde
    4. Kendrick Lamar: good kid, m.A.A.d city
    5. Frank Ocean: Channel Orange
    6. Kanye West: Yeezus
    7. Vampire Weekend: Modern Vampires of the City
    8. Sufjan Stevens: Carrie & Lowell
    9. Arcade Fire: The Suburbs
    10. Lorde: Melodrama

    https://pitchfork.com/features/article/2010s-readers-poll-results/

    Many of these albums (or the songs from these albums) are either Grammy winners in their own genre or they are AOTY nominees.

    The AOTY winners have to appeal to a wide range of people, so the winners tend to be the safe choices with broad appeal. Music critics and Pitchfork readers don’t have to care about getting votes from people working in the American roots, Country music or Christian music categories.

    There will soon be a lot more critics lists for the 2010s decade, with perhaps most of them coming late November or later. I’m sure some of them will put 21 in their Top 10 albums.

    Yeah but 21 is ultra popular to the audience, with highest selling number this decade?? I mean Pitchfork users are still the general audience regardless, let’s not pretend they live under a rock specifically.
