Re: Consequence of Sound (US) : Top 100 Best Songs of the 2010s

I really like this list. It covers the bases of a lot of the pop music of this decade. Maybe it leans too heavily on pop for a general list, but I'm happy.

Not voting, because I heard Mitski's album for the first time only once a couple days ago, and haven't heard Art Angels in years.

Re: Overlooked Songs 3: 2010s Edition - Round 1 Week 8

For this final group, I had heard most of the songs before. Another week where I didn't have any major problems with the songs; however, the songs are more okay than actually good. To me, a couple songs here are proof that there is no difference between mainstream and indie music now. Like last week...
