Finally someone showing love to Lady Lamb's After, one of my favorite releases of the decade.

Seeing Teenage Dream was uh, no thanks.

Blond at 56 is surprising.

I feel with a lot of these lists, they seem to feel a little self-conscious about the fact that they're releasing the list before the end of the decade. To compensate for that, they'll often pick a 2019 record by an artist, even if there might be other earlier releases that might have made it instead. I'm feeling this in particular with Sharon Van Etten, Angel Olsen, and Lana Del Rey. COS also does it here with Anderson. .Paak.

Maybe it's the same person, but I feel like everyone on this forum keeps complaining about the lack of Chico Dusty on these lists :o While it's a good album and all (it's actually in my personal top ten for it's year), i'm not too heated about it's emission, as it's really Stankonia Part II if we're being honest ;)

100. PJ Harvey – Let England Shake (2011)
I am surprised that Let England Shake doesn't seem to be doing that well. I had thought it was a given that it would be a staple in the top 20 or so of most lists, but it's been generally ranked toward the bottom or left out entirely so far. Perhaps acclaim for it will pick up when more UK publications start publishing their lists.
