And now the 2010s are done! I finished off the 1001 list early in the decade, and it was just the Pitchfork list for the rest of it. And wow, what a terrible decade. The 2000s Pitchfork list was really interesting and varied and I found a lot of good stuff. Not so much for the 2010s. Complete crap. I have also been catching up with new entries to the RYM list so have also finished the top 1001 (not including archival/live) on there, aside from the 5.5 hour album that got in this week. Average ratings for the lists are included below..

Best finds from the 10s (that I hadn't listened to before):
John Grant - Queen of Denmark (2010) 7
Lil Peep - Hellboy (2016) 7/10

Other stuff I've liked since the last time:
Run the Jewels - RTJ4 (2020) 7/10

Current stats:
1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die (2013 edition): 1001/1001 2.6/5
Rolling Stones' Top 500 Albums of All Time (2012): 500/500 2.7/5
Pitchfork 1960s: 200/200 2.5/5
Pitchfork 1970s: 100/100 2.7/5
Pitchfork 1980s: 100/100 2.5/5
Pitchfork 1990s: 100/100 2.4/5
Pitchfork 2000s: 200/200 2.4/5
Pitchfork 2010s: 200/200 2.3/5


My next goals are to explore more music from different countries, stuff from genres I'll probably like, the Pokemon genre project which I've been doing daily, and slowly working on the Acclaimed Music's Top 3000 Albums list (I've listened to nearly 1600/3000). And also starting to re-listen to some of my favourites and other albums I wanted to give a second listen. I rarely listened to albums before the original 1001 RYM project started in early 2015, but I've basically trained myself to listen to albums now. It's either my current playlist on shuffle or albums. I've now listened to a total of 2822 albums with an average rating of 5.1/10. I've listened to a pretty even amount from the 1960s-2010s, across 652 genres (according to the sometimes-very-oddly-specific RYM genres) and 52 countries. I've loved enough albums to have a solid top ~50, and a good top ~150.

The last five years have made it clear that I am NOT an album person, I don't find them very consistent works or nor do I find artists particularly consistent (same with film, so I guess that's just a thing). However, albums have been very helpful in allowing me to give everything a go. I've listened to countless genres and artists that I would have never have touched before or that I would've skipped immediately had a song played. I had a habit years ago where I'd give a song 30 seconds to impress me before I'd skip it. I might not have enjoyed listening to everything, but honestly it's given me a wider appreciation for listening in general and a better understanding of different types of music and what I like. My tastes haven't really changed, but have become more 'rounded', I suppose. I do not take music as seriously as film, and I'm not interested in/can't hear the 'technical' qualities, and all that matters to me (still) is how enjoyable I find it to listen to (what else?).

I have also been pleasantly surprised in a lot of ways. I found lots of individual songs that I liked on albums that I didn't really get into. I would've listed hip hop as one of the worst genres, but now it's kind of in the middle: it turns out it's R&B I hate. My boyfriend thought it was funny and confusing when he heard me listening to hip hop (basically the only music he listens to), but now we're able to have discussions about the music/artists/history and he always wants to know what I've listened to or liked. He's even keeping a secret playlist of hip hop songs he thinks I'll like. Could've named about 3 hip hop songs I liked before this, now I actually don't know how many I like.

I only recently started making up top of the decade lists so I'll share a very rough top 25 of the 2010s (only the top 12 is strong):

2. The Magnetic Fields - 50 Song Memoir (2017)

Mr. Bungle released their first album in 21 years which is a rerecording of their death metal album, and it's 2010 again with a new Salem album. What a weird year.

RYM was down last night and, as expected, they've changed a few things. The new charts page is interesting, a few new settings to fiddle around with. Not sure how to make the 'official' charts anymore with the popularity factor, but lots of new stuff to listen to now... Seems like it's mostly video game music :(

Well, based on the ones I hadn't listened to I think only one or two, surprisingly (thankfully). It was mostly video game and film soundtracks. And a few classical pieces.

Nothing's bad about someone hating (or liking) any genre of music. You don't choose what you like or don't like. What would be 'wrong' is 'people who are dismissive of metal/insert genre' and 'people who love metal/insert genre and dismiss everything else'. Also 'metal hater' makes it sound like there's some KKK type of group for metal. I'm not a metal hater, I'm someone who hates metal.

I was curious about the genre distribution of my favourite albums, so I put in all the genres into this site: https://monkeylearn.com/word-cloud/

I've rated 164 albums 7+ and these are the top 40 genres (the site somehow misspelled some of them, idk how):

Not at all surprised lol

So, Spotify. Haven't used for a few years but got a free spell of premium. Am I missing something or is the app just terrible? (using on Android phone)

1. If you are playing an album and want to line up another album to play next, it only works if you're on the last song because it will always put the next album up immediately following the current track playing. How is there not two separate options of either Play Next vs Add to End of Queue?

2. You got to an album and 'Shuffle Play' is the default big Play option without an option for regular play next to it (yeah okay now I know if you click first song it'll go in order, but why make this harder?)

3. When you look at your queue of what's playing next you don't get track lengths. When you go to an album you don't get track lengths, only the whole album length. When you search for songs, you don't see track lengths unless you start playing them. WHY NOT?!

4. List of recently played tracks is...where? I can find recently played albums/playlists on front page. But say I'm listening to random playlist and want to find out what the last song was called after it finishes...? [found a workaround where you can start to make a playlist and then you can get to a list of recent songs. but why in god's name is it so hidden?]


I was using google play/youtube music before which have some minor annoyances, but I didn't appreciate how much worse things could be! I can see there a good features of Spotify, in terms of recommends, easy to make playlists etc, but some of the design features like above are just stunningly awful in such basic ways. Are these active choices to make you listen in a certain way?

Those things are annoying but I’ve gotten used to them and work around them. There are a bunch of other things about it that are really frustrating but it’s just too convenient. I downloaded mp3s and used windows media player before this so anything would’ve been an upgrade lol. There is a recently played list somewhere but I must’ve gone to it on the pc because I can’t find it on the app. Track lengths also show on the pc, Idk why it doesn’t show on the app.

Like Netflix, these services are designed for the lowest common denominator, meaning people who don't really care too much about seeking out stuff, but prefer to click play and let the service figure out the rest.

I hardly use Spotify, mostly because it doesn't let me do a proper search/grouping on Label.

Every streaming music app is trash to use. Somewhat ironically the best one (Rdio) couldn't survive 5 years while all the crud around it stuck around.

tbf, IMO those 2 services (Spotify and Netflix) actually offer good value for money, I think paying around 8 EUR per month for the catalogue they're offering is in fact really cheap... so while criticism is fair these are not the companies like Facebook who make HUGE amounts of money out of nothing... as far as I know these two have been not doing too well financially over the past few years.

I agree with this and it's why I'm still subbed to spotify, but it's lack of improvements over the years has been frustrating.

I agree with this and it's why I'm still subbed to spotify, but it's lack of improvements over the years has been frustrating.
Sure, can agree with that as well - their apps are quite bad :D Hope they do something about that though.

Ok so I found that recently played thing. On PC, when you click on listening queue there is a tab for history which shows recently played songs. But if you go to it on the app, you just get the queue. I hate it when they make app/mobile versions of things with worse functionality.

Lately I was reading an article about classic albums from the NWOBHM. I took pictures of albums I need to listen to (again) to fill some gaps in my metal-education. I often take such picture to make a quick note. But this picture got fuzzy. I only noticed it just now and already threw away the magazine. Does anybody recognize the cover?

Watching Rolling Thunder Revue right now. I love Dylan on vinyl, but the more performances I see of him, the more I think he's overrated. He has charisma and personality on stage, but certainly not a great singer. He's shouting most of the time.

There, I've said it......
