It is again that time of the year where everyone and their mothers will be doing the top 10s, top 20s of this and that. I shall not. But that doesn’t stop me from collecting a bunch of top-x lists, does it?
– Stereogum has their top 50 Albums up on the website. Bon Iver, Drake and Girls take top 3, which is… well. weird.
– NPR Music’s 50 Favorite albums from 2011. Everything from Adele to tUnE-yArDs to Tom Waits.
– PopMatters has a list of the 75 Best Songs of 2011. With youtube videos. FleetFoxes and M83 are high on the list.
– How can we leave out Rolling Stone’s Top Albums and Singles of 2011? We can’t, of course.
– To influence an upcoming list, you can vote for the top albums list of All Things Considered at NPR until December 14th.
– But of course, music is not the only thing that has end of the year lists. Here is Peter Bradshaw’s list of best movies of 2011.
– And, clearly, you don’t need to have one top ten list for one art form. Top 10 ALL the things!
