REACTIONS:

  • Arcade Fire disappointing 2 finish out of top 10, but probs cuz of Regine
  • Kanye West and Big Boi in the top 10 are 'further proof' of the negrofication of Pitchfork [link]
  • WAVVES at 50 and Best Coast at 39 prove that indie critics don't really 'respect' those bands as artists
  • Ariel Pink has a 'solid showing' at
  • Vampire Weekend has the opportunity to hit 10.0 status since they are both 'mainstream' and 'critically respected.'
  • Deerhunter may or may not be 'overvalued' by Pitchforks
  • Twin Shadow placed at a 'very respectable' 26
  • Joanna Newsom is still respected 4 some reason even though her songs sound all insane and long.

How do u feel abt this list?
Are there any disturbing/controversial trends that manifested themselves in 2k10?
Which artists 'don't belong on this list'?
Which artists 'deserve HIPSTER RUNOFF coverage'?
Did they 'crush it' or 'totally eff up the legacy of 2k10'?
Who had the #1 album of 2k10?

Is this Pitchfork's 'last year' as a relevant indie tastemaker?
Did they 'give up' their indie cred by selecting Kanye West #1
Do u want more Pitchfork coverage in 2k11?
