I wasn't the biggest Reflektor fan, but claiming Miley Cyrus put out a better album than Arcade Fire this year is a little ridiculous.

Do any non-critics actually listen to James Blake?

Some good titles, I had both of Oddisee's records on my list.

Meh, most of these top 50 lists are the same or are so similar. I want to discover some new music.

Can someone point me to some genre lists, punk, metal, jazz, etc.?

Thanks!
