Re: EOY 2017 - Billboard (US)

This is actually not a bad list. Sure, Taylor Swift and Ed Sheeran feel a little forced, but it's more in sync with most other lists than, say, Rolling Stone. The fact that Japandroids is included is a great surprise. And Priests being exactly one rank above Ed Sheeran feels good too. This being sai...

Re: EOY 2017 - Pitchfork (US)

I read the full list and I was quite surprised to see On Hold by The xx. I get that the album came out in January, but the single was released in early November 2016; the website even made a track review of it. Was their cutoff too early or did they just forget about it and tried to sneak the track...

Re: EOY 2017 Albums Spreadsheet Updates

Man, I knew Near to the Wild Heart of Life did not get the same reception as Celebration Rock did, but I didn't think it would be so low. It's sitting at #347 right now and only one publication mentioned it so far. For what it's worth, I've been jamming a lot to this album and I feel like Japandroid...

Re: EOY 2017 - Voir (CA)

Just curious: how would the albums by King Gizzard be counted for the spreadsheet in such a case where four albums are presented together? Also, Loud's New Phone and Une année record are also two distinct records. This is taking for granted it will be considered for the spreadsheet, but it does seem...

Re: EOY 2017 Songs Spreadsheet Updates

I'm going to be so confused if LCD Soundsystem ends up with an album in the top 5 and nothing in the top 10 songs...where is the love for How Do You Sleep and Tonite? The way I see it, there is no clear choice for the highlight of American Dream. I've seen call the police , how do you sleep and ton...

Re: EOY 2017 - Stereogum (US)

January albums (I know RTJ were Christmas 2016 officially, but the physical release at least was January) always seem to suffer from being overlooked on end of year lists to some degree, unless they're a total phenomenon like Merriweather Post Pavilion. I think RTJ are another example of that. I al...

Re: EOY 2017 Albums Spreadsheet Updates

I note that there's not been one single mention for Brand New (one of the best reviewed albums of the year) so far in these lists as a result of what came out about Jesse Lacey's past. Understandable I guess though possibly a bit hypocritical from a music press who aren't about to delete the likes ...

Re: EOY 2017 - Stereogum (US)

It's really bothering me that RTJ3 is being omitted from so many lists. I know it was technically a 2016 release (the digital release dropped on Christmas Day), but I don't recall the album appearing on any 2016 EOY lists, not even late entries like Pazz & Jop. I'm hoping that as more lists sta...

Re: EOY 2017 Albums Spreadsheet Updates

Thanks for this! I'll be curious to see how long American Dream by LCD Soundsystem can hold on to that second spot. The album got a lot of great reviews but I don't think I've seen anyone this year saying it was their best record. About twenty minutes after you posted this, this happened: http://ww...

Re: EOY 2017 - Popcrush (US)

I am very interested in what will be the next South Korean song to make AM. PSY to me doesn't seem truly representative of the trending wave of KPop, since PSY isn't popular in Korea, so the next song in a way will truly mark the rise of KPop. I say all this because I see BTS in this list... Their ...

Re: EOY 2017 - Consequence of Sound (USA)

I find it weird how Bad and Boujee is getting so many votes considering the track was released in October of last year. It's cool that it gets its due, but I feel like a lot of magazines just dropped the ball on that one last year and they are trying to right their wrongs now.

Re: EOY 2017 - NME (UK)

I was reading the list on their site and I literally stopped at around #4 asking myself what songs were missing and I came to the realization that "Boys" would not be there. I love the song, but there was no way it would be in the top 3. And yet.. I hope for her that the song fares well on...
