is Q Magazine always first? it seems that way.

first out gets all the press in the dailies & websites and also gets big sales before people get fed up with list overload. But most of the magazines come out on the 1st of the month now

Algerian Goalkeeper, Sunday, 28 November 2010 06:27 (six years ago) Permalink

so Q is big enough to get mentioned in daily newspapers and it will actually boost sales. Hence the lists get out.

Never heard of John Grant until I saw these lists, is it any good? Can't believe MGMT is #3 on the Mojo list, I thought it was an appalling mess.

John Grant fka singer in The Czars. This album is as patchy as most Czars records were, but the transcendent moments still exist.

No, but I might do that on my blog. Also, The Wire asked for a Top Five list of reissues, and these were the first two:

1. Fania All-Stars, Ponte Duro: The Fania All-Stars Story (Fania)
2. Los Saicos, ¡Demolición! The Complete Recordings (Munster)

I think it's very imaginable that in a month's time an album could come out that would have made it on someone's list otherwise.

Yeah, not to mention that if these lists are coming out now, when were they actually finalized?

_Rudipherous_, Sunday, 28 November 2010 16:45 (six years ago) Permalink

i think it's good to have a month (december) where little comes out but you have a chance to catch up and/or reevaluate before making your list.

I'm hopeful that I might find some good stuff on some of the December/EOY lists that I haven't heard yet.

the ciara and diddy/dirty money albums aren't out yet. neither is the nicolas jaar compilation. the jazmine sullivan, kanye west, rihanna and yelawolf albums have only just been released (not that i like the kanye/rihanna ones but they were certainly anticipated for good reason). nov/dec release dates for big artists are par for the course in the music industry.

I don't know where to put this, but did any of you check out this Japanese band 80kidz album on at least one of the lists posted or linked to on this thread (I think it was the Silent Ballet one)? It starts off electro-dribble, but it sounds more like regular "dance music" as it progresses. I'm okay with it but I have a feeling a bunch of you would like it more than I do. I think it's all instrumental. (I've only listened to the whole thing once and might have been out of the room for part of it.)

does xgau usually put old stuff in his list? there's a bunch of 2009 albums there, and his #8 single is from 2006.

lex diamonds (lex pretend), Wednesday, 12 January 2011 22:30 (six years ago) Permalink

He often applies the Pazz & Jop "Year Of Impact" rule (so do I), when it comes to releases he connected with the year after they technically came out. Though 2006 might be pushing things. (He's pushed things more in the past, though; i.e., naming the Clash's 1982 "Rock The Casbah" his #1 single of 2001.)

xhuxk, Wednesday, 12 January 2011 22:42 (six years ago) Permalink

yeah i get the year of impact thing, though it makes way less sense for albums. what impact did lil wayne or nicki minaj's old mixtapes have in 2010?! and the 2006 single certainly didn't have any greater impact than this year than in the four previous.

lex diamonds (lex pretend), Wednesday, 12 January 2011 22:58 (six years ago) Permalink

Well, it apparently had more impact on him, which it what matters, since it's his list. (Not defending the 2006 choice, which I know nothing about. But also, I don't get how "late impact" can't happen just as much with albums as with singles -- especially, say, November or December releases that wind up breaking a couple hits the following year, or barely distributed albums on tiny labels that everybody ignored the year before. Not all critics feel the compulsion to hear albums the day they come out, thank God.)

I guess the Joanna Newsom album really stiffed in relation to her profile. Nothing else surprises me as much.

I just prefer thinking about Beach House as a bad Goa trance album name from 1998 on Moonshine.

they are good. it's crazy they sold 100 000+ copies! they seem like really great people, too. didn't listen to the new album much but devotion is an all time classic

15k in the US for Tame Impala is pretty impressive since, afaik, it still hasn't been given a domestic release (Amazon still has only the import for like $30)
