'Tis the Season, part deux: More year-end lists!
The floodgates have opened and the year-end lists are pouring in! Check out some of these 2005 wrap-ups for a feel of how critics are responding to the last year's batch of new records:
- Rolling Stone weighs in with a typically populist (and kinda silly) Top 50.
- PopMatters' Top 50 is much more reasonable-- not only do they throw an interesting curveball for their #1 slot, but they didn't forget about Andrew Bird!
- The Boston Globe mixes the predictable with the surprising in their year-end wrap-up. (Another Andrew Bird sighting!)
- The Onion AV Club counts down the year's best albums, best cover songs, and pretty much anything else they can think of.
- The editors of Amazon.com count down their Top 100.
