Re: NPR - The 200 Greatest Songs by 21st Century Women+ (2018)

I'm not too familiar with Sharon's earlier work. Was 'You Better Think Twice' her only release under her name before 2000? On the other hand, Kelis hit the ground running from the start. NPR possibly made an exception for 'Caught Out There...' and her debut album as they were released a few months b...

Re: NPR - The 200 Greatest Songs by 21st Century Women+ (2018)

Yeah, I've been going through the list and there are some acts there that had been releasing music before 2000. Against Me! and Feist have some pre-2000 releases but they didn't garner the attention that their post-00s releases would. Shakira was well-known in Latin America before the 00s, though he...

Re: NPR - The 200 Greatest Songs by 21st Century Women+ (2018)

Much like Sleater-Kinney, Aaliyah and Missy had made their mark before the turn of the century so they were likely ineligible. Some people may point to Beyoncé as having been around since the 90s with Destiny's Child but she really didn't make a name for herself as a solo artist until the early 00s.

Re: NPR - The 200 Greatest Songs by 21st Century Women+ (2018)

As much as I love the band, NPR are likely counting Sleater-Kinney as a 90s group. Quality list. The one real sticking point I had with it is a lack of Julia Holter, who I consider one of the most exciting artists working in the modern day, male or female. Julia has been my favourite female solo art...

Geez, I hope they don't keep changing their mind on Roger the Engineer or Sunbather like they did with Use Your Illusion II. Out of all the metal albums that they recently upgraded, Sunbather wasn't the most questionable choice of the bunch either.
