Village Voice publishes Pazz & Jop poll: Kanye and “Get Lucky” top the lists

by Bill Pearis

Pazz & Jopp

The Village Voice‘s annual Pazz & Jop critics poll was published this week, surveying a whole mess of music writers and tallying up the vote. As with anything where it’s a collective list, the winners won’t be surprising to anyone who’s perused 2013 Best Of lists. Kanye West, Vampire Weekend and Daft Punk top the LPs list; Daft Punk, Haim and Kanye have the top three singles. The late deadline for voting did, however, allow for the inclusion of Beyoncé‘s self-titled LP, which came in at #4.

You can check out the Top 20 LPs and Tracks in this post and peruse the whole lists at the Village Voice. You can also check out individual ballots and read essays on Kanye, Miley, R Kelly, the emo revival, and others, not to mention loads of pithy blurbs and pie charts.
