 The most pleasurable, innovative, infinitely replayable, groundbreaking, heartbreaking, hilarious, challenging, emotionally overwhelming, unrelenting, memorable, did-we-already-say-pleasurable collections of music that we leaned on over the last 10 years for pure life-enhancing sensation. Some of these albums taught us something. Some of them made us dumber. Some of them, for better or worse, defined the concerns and musical trends of the 2010s. Others we wish had that kind of reach. And perhaps most importantly, many of these artists and works upended the status quo as the world questioned its power structures like never before. 

So it's not a best of list? OK then! :keir:

They included Femme Fatale but not Glory? :biblio:

ANTI #1 spot is well deserved :clap3:

I’m surprised to see ST ahead of Lemonade... ST is definitely better but I thought that Lemonade was more well liked by critics
