Another classic case of a single-writer byline and selection credit but also crediting the list to the full site. I almost feel like there should be an addendum that says a single-critic list for one artist is eligible if they occupy a major position at that publication (our old friend Sassan Niassieri here is the chief editor at German Rolling Stone), but unless I can convince Henrik, this list is almost certainly ineligible. But who knows? For posterity's sake, here it is. (And he already did a similar one for Musikexpress).

Some real left turns here - Anna Stesia is number one and Purple Rain doesn't even crack the top 20! Kinda hope it's eligible, but if it isn't, I understand completely.
