Re: Songs 2015

It's tough to believe there are only three months left of 2015, which means we're likely less than two months away from the beginning of the "best of the year" lists being released. With that said, does anyone have any predictions on what songs will top the lists this year? Below are my pr...

Re: Albums and Songs of 2010-2014 Poll - Results Thread

Thanks for all the great work so far, Jackson! And I'm also loving the song lyrics that you pick for each song - especially the one for Avant Gardener, which I think might be my favorite lyric of the entire decade.

Re: EOY 2014: Village Voice Pazz & Jop Poll

For some reason, Taylor Swift has 2 mentions for "Track 3," which would be for "Style." This would bump "Style" up to 14 mentions and tie it with "West Coast" at the 49th spot. This seems to be the only mention of a track number instead of the song title, whic...

Re: Who Will Win the 2014 Pazz and Jop Poll?

Great to see Black Messiah get the praise it deserves. It was definetly the most acclaimed album of the year and I thought it'd be left out since it was released so late.

I'm really excited that this is back, Otisredding! Also a bit surprised that Roseanne Cash's "The River & the Thread" didn't make the cut, as I was expecting it to top the January list. I assume it fell short on the minimum number of reviews?

Thanks for another great update Otis!

I'm a bit surprised that Phosphorecent is so low. The top five albums are all really great though.

Otis, was Kacey Musgraves close to making the list? Her score of 90 on metacritic is higher than M B V's (although she only has 8 reviews).

With four albums receiving scores above 80 on metacritic this week (Kacey Musgraves, Low, Suede and Phosphorecent), the next update should be quite interesting.
