God, these lists are getting about to be about as bad as Christmas as far things starting far too early, but I'm not going to avoid them either

I'm pretty sure Mojo's released theirs as well. I used to have a link to a website that would compile every year end list for pretty much the last 20 years or something. I'll see if I still have it, and link the other available lists here.

The best thing about these lists to me is that they usually contain a few albums of whose existence I was not aware.

Like Drowned in Sound's #1. I've heard over 100 albums this year and I hadn't even heard of that one. I'll be giving it a spin this evening.

Pearl Jam can't release an album every year, sadly.

Even if they did, it wouldn't be on many of the lists.

07-01-2010 Gdynia, Poland was criminally overlooked, I feel.

For the original post.

Drowned In Sound's list is still my favorite. Definitely makes me want to hear Emeralds' record, although I've certainly had my fill of ambient for the year.

I'm going to have to check out Emeralds as well, Drowned's list looks good.

Every year I end up buying at least 3 or 4 albums I missed and learned about from year end lists. A good many times, I'm mad I learned of them late, as they would have made my personal year end list.

I was reading NPR's list of top picks for the year (from someone's link on Facebook), and found myself looking up tracks by Vittorio Grigolo, some newfangled hottie Italian tenor.

While looking around, I found out that he was the same dude who had done an Italian popera cover of Keane's "Bedshaped," a song I'd had for a while on mp3 but had sadly lost. I couldn't for the life of me remember his name to try and find it again.

Now, thanks to NPR leading me to this dude, I have it again and am happy.

Ha, Uncut loves Paul Weller so much. I really need to check him out at some point.

I can't imagine he's done anything worth while since the Style Council. Uncut just really likes to suck him off for some reason.
