Yeah, the title’s a little awkward, but it feels far more honest than “The 40 Best Albums of 2010” or whatever. I’ll let pitchfork.com or Rolling Stone deliver the “definitive” lists. It’s weird, but I spend too much time and money seeking out new music and still feel hopelessly behind the times. The best I can do is lay out some stuff I like. Best case scenario, someone stumbles on this and discovers something cool. Worst case scenario, I come across this list ten years from now and feel embarrassed for having Nicki Minaj at #1.
That’s a joke. Or is it? Guess you’ll just have to read the list and find out.
