Re: 2010s EOD Recommendation Thread

“Made” this song list last night - this is my all-time list from a year or two ago but pared down to Only this decade’s songs. Definitely have shifted on some and added many more, but a rough idea of my EOD list. 1. Sharon Van Etten - “Tarifa” 2. Lady Lamb - “Bird Balloons” 3. Japandroids - “The Hou...

Re: Uproxx (US) - All The Best Albums Of The 2010s, Ranked

The first half of this songs list had me excited with some deeper cuts like Sharon Van Etten's "Love More", Angel Olsen's "Mirrors", and Julien Baker's "Rejoice", but the top 50 leaned way too hard into the pop and giving the number one to "Hotline Bling" is just disgraceful.
