My top 30 so far, of course since we're basically living in it, this will quickly get out-to-date and some albums might even grow further, but already exchanging our lists will enable us even more to evolve these lists.

Some stats:

- Only one artist with 2 albums so far: sonhos tomam conta
- Best rated RYM album in my list is billy woods & Preservation - Aethiopes on 8 for the 2020s (i've to listen a few others that are higher than that)
- Most rated RYM album in my list is my number 1: Charli XCX - how i'm feeling now.
- RYM album with the least ratings in my list is: Lalalar - Bi Cennete Bakar with only 91 ratings

Countries & tags can be very interesting to know what styles are trendy (AND that i like), and also what countries are "coming" or doing well in this era.

Best song for each album:

c2.0
나의 미래 (So Please Don’t Leave Me) / 한숨 / To Go Forward Despite the Terror of Living in This World, Clinging to a Tiny Speck of Hope
Nydia
Bites on My Neck
Hotel 65
No eres tu (Soy yo)
Dreamcatching
농담 Joke
If Loving You Is Wrong
Chapters

Prester John
4ÆM
Lonely People in Neon Cities
There’s Nothing You Can’t Do
Gazin'
흰천장 (White Ceiling)
Porcelain
Giving The World Away
Eso que tu haces
The Prophet

Chismiten
Effe
Maladaptive Daydreaming
Wherever You Go feat. Jamie xx, Neneh Cherry (vocals), CLYPSO (vocals)
L.I.N.E.
Kötüye Bişey Olmaz
Versailles (feat. Despot)
Borderline
They Told Us It Was Hard, but They Were Wrong
Posing in Bondage

-> for some albums, this was a hard choice, esp. the ones i ranked very high (otherwise they wouldn't be ranked high :D ). Basically impossible for my entire top 10.

I could make a Spotify list for the "songs" if someone wants to, but a song doesn't always of course summarize an album, but it can be a good entry point.

Rated 13 albums from the 3 years so I can't really contribute, but I just had to comment that these tags would have seemed even more likely to pop up on a list of 1990-1992 albums. :o

With the exception of shoegaze, I think my top stats when I have listened to more would look similar too. ;) :cheers:

Onderhond's theory that eras repeat every 30 years than might be true, but I'm a big fan of late 80s and especially early 90s music so it might just be personal taste.

Art pop tho definitely is in its prime and has been getting more popular.

The other 3 genres are doing well too on RYM (if i look up those graphs).
