Pitchfork's 200 Best Songs & Albums of the 2010s

Discussion in 'Pop & Justice' started by dewzero, Oct 7, 2019.

  1. Should ‘Style’ have been in there considering what a moment ‘1989’ was?

    Though in pitchfork’s reviews of all the albums in the lead up to a Lover, I guess they stanned hardest for Red so ‘All Too Well’ inclusion isn’t that much of a surprise.

    Definitely expected more Gaga, especially as she was mentioned in the editor’s explanation of counting things from 2009 that had more of an impact in 2010 (was Bad Romance in their 2000s round up?)

  2. Genuinely surprised Kelly Clarkson's Piece by Piece (Idol Version) wasn't included. Would have preferred Drunk in Love or Haunted, or Partition to make the list over XO as far as song from BEYONCE are concerned.

    I still need to give the list a proper read but it does paint a brilliant picture of how over the past decade the popular genre has become rap/hip hop over EDM and straight up pop which dominated the early parts of the decade.

  4. M.I.A. embarrassed Pitchfork with that album. Didn't the reviewer accuse her of being paranoid about the government using internet data without our knowledge only for her to be absolutely right. Connected to the Google connected to the government for real.
  5. Nice to see Stonemilker included and Joanna's Good Intentions at #29 but it's a very odd listing overall. Robyn should've been at number one and let's face it: King Kunta > Alright. And where's Janelle's Q.U.E.E.N? Nothing from Tegan & Sara, Gaga nor Madonna (although it really wasn't her decade)?

    Edit: And Lil Uzi Vert, really? *facepalm*
  6. They didn't review 1989 either and still had it in their end of the year list. I mean, I'm not expecting them to include it but with the poptimism movement and Gaga being 'cool' again you would think that maybe they could acknowledge it now. Then again maybe they simply just didn't like the album.

  7. Say what you want about her as a person but 1989 absolutely deserves a place on the list.
  8. PopJustice should do a list.

  9. After he did a NewMusicFriday of only Troya Sivana tracks?

  10. 212 being top 10 is so deserved, a timeless classique!

    Justice for @1991 and Liquorice though.

    ...I can't tell if this is a joke or if you really thought that would make it.

    Sometimes artists need a new album to come out for people to appreciate the old classics.

    Not, you know, stick-on paper that goes around your eyes and eyeliner.

    There are some glaring emissions (such as Gaga) and truly head-scratching inclusions (such as 3 out of 5 of the Beyoncé tracks), but there were a lot of pleasant surprises on the list too and some genuinely great write ups. The write up for Levels had me feeling all kinds of things in particular.
  14. Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded having 2 placements on the list... a classic.

  15. It is not overrated but still the others are better.
    Beez is Nicki's best track so at least that makes sense.
  16. XO being included over Partition is a hate crime.

    It'll be the A Star Is Born soundtrack and we'll all deal with it.
