I looooove those picks, most of which have been too overlooked so far or, for the highest 5, not ranked as high as they should have been.
While it's the lowest in my personal list, the fact that Bloodbuzz Ohio is struggling to stay in the EOD top 100 is the most obvious sign that critics have gone way too far in distancing themselves from indie rock, that's an obvious instant classic and it should cruise to at least a solid top 50. And I have the same feeling about The House That Heaven Built, though I can see how it's not everyone's cup of tea.
Beach Life in Death is an amazing epic, but I might be a bit biased when it comes to Car Seat Headrest... but seriously, that song and Bodys are just incredible.

I'm lost at why Climax and Play by Play are not gaining as much from poptimism as others, but Jessie Ware and her gorgeous Wildest Moments has inexplicably suffered even more.

Anyway, I'm not surprised that Treble would be the list I share the most tastes with, but even besides those shared pick, I think it's the best list I have seen so far because it manages to acknowledge poptimism without forgetting that rock has its moments and that metal exists. I won't lie, I'm also happy rap is represented by everything but trap, that Robyn, Adele, Carly Rea and Grimes are in but RIhanna, Katy Perry and Taylor Swift are out. Remove Get Lucky, put a SOPHIE song instead and you'll have captured my 2010s pretty neatly ; there are other changes I'd make obviously, I'm missing 212, Parquet Courts, Hot Chip or Four Tet for instance, but it gets the big picture right.

It's a good list
They chose singles very well to represent Angel Olsen
"Surgeon" was remembered
Arca - “Desafío” this beautiful song :character-cookiemonster:
Macintosh Plus 8-) 8-)
Jessie Ware - "Wildest Moments"
I prefer "Running" or "110%" but Jessie being present is good already
Grimes - “Kill v. Maim ”
Maybe the best single from AA
More votes for “Every Single Night”
Father John Misty - "Chateau Lobby # 4 (In C for Two Virgins)"
A cute song and I'm liking it more and more
Kanye West - “All of the Lights”
I didn't like this choice
Surprised that another relevant American publication didn't include Lana Del Rey, but I don't care
