Are these Cleveland lists by single or multiple critics?

"All of that makes the 1980s one of the most beloved and important decades of music we've seen."

Yes, there is. Above the Clash cover it says "Troy L. Smith, Cleveland.com".

Whoops! Didn't see that. I think he's credited on all of the Cleveland lists. I believe he's the music editor.
