Re: EOD 2010s Songs Spreadsheet Updates

I know Arcade Fire became really uncool over the course of the decade, but surely "Reflektor" deserves a spot in the top 100? If only for Bowie's sake, at least.

Come to think of it... nothing of Bowie's is here either. What a disservice.

Re: Stereogum : The 100 Best Albums of the 2010s

Red was released before poptimism was the kewl new thing. Now that poptimism is in full force, they went back and reevaluated it, since Taylor has been a major icon throughout the decade.

Either that, or they're being paid to promote her. Either one is pretty likely.
