Pitchfork’s Top 100 Albums of the Decade So Far (2010-2014)

by Andrew Sacher

Pitchfork

Yesterday, Pitchfork posted their top 200 tracks of the decade so far, and today they’ve listed the top 100 albums to have come out between 2010-2014. There’s some surprises on there. For example, I didn’t expect to see Bon Iver‘s self-titled, their #1 album of 2011 and with a score of 9.5, rank as low as #27 on this list. I was also surprised to see Chief Keef make it but not, say, Shabazz Palaces or Schoolboy Q. And there’s a few other glaring omissions: nothing by The National? Grizzly Bear? One thing that will surprise no one though, is their #1 pick.

You can check out the full list below…
