If it were just a Top 100 I would find this list very consistent with a great hit compilation But overall it looks like a joint list with RollingStone and NME critics At the beginning of the decade it was easy to know which rock bands had the profile of P4k (Ariel Pink, Swans, Destroyer), NME (Arcti...

I also like CupOfDreams' idea of a Top 200 with more voting song options (250/300 songs)

Re: AMF All Time Artists List 2019 - Results

A good example of an artist who was not well recognized by both the public and critics at the time is Nina Simone and now she is more important than most artists who emerged in the 50 years.

Critics bring an overview of how they see the past in current times, so it always changes.
