"...when this lands on the decade list."

Who cares about the decade list really?

"Golden Hour album of the decade? It must've been a pretty slow decade"

Doof I'll continue the battle for Lorde's Melodrama to be at least Top 25 on the decade list and absolutely agree that it was monumental (I know you said the debut, but I'm choosing to interpret that as the actual better of her two albums)

Digging: Keeley Forsyth - Debris

if this is your AOTD then it's time to take up archery or backgammon or long walks or something

your time is better spent doing something else

Sowing - the Lorde debut was a big album and if you hopped in the time machine back to that year a load of people would have been saying it was a likely top 100 for the decade (as they prob had it in their top 10s of the year, etc)

time is not always kind to pop

wait wait wait

no one said album of the decade...I'd be a bit miffed as well

but you're in denial if you think it won't be somewhere on the decade 100 considering it was a staff AOTY

Doof - Oh I agree, the debut was bigger culturally and enjoyed a warmer mainstream reception. But Melodrama is art-pop perfected. I actually believe myself that it deserves a spot on the decade list. It's probably somewhere between #25-#15 on my personal decade ranking.

if it came out in 2010 staff AOTY or no I think it would have been dropped by now....probably

bet there's an actual example of something similar from 2010 or 2011 that's sunk down the slippery pole of relevance and/or fashion

Sowing - I'm not so much judging these albums on their merits as much as just saying 'out of headphones out of mind' esp with pop

if it's 7 years old will anyone remember/still be listening?

people will still be listening to Radiohead...or Kendrick...or new Tool gawd help us.

I personally think one shouldn't make AOTD lists before the decade is even over.

Give it at least 2 years for albums that dropped in 2018-19 to get that perspective.

Doof - oh inevitably. I agree that time isn't kind to everything, especially pop. maybe Janelle Monae as an example?



the thing is most staff (despite popular perception) do actually take their roles semi-seriously, and a lot of us are already re-listening to albums from '10, '11, '12, etc in preparation. so unless it literally hasn't aged well (as opposed to just being forgotten about, which are two separate things), then old albums - pop or otherwise - should still stand just as much of a chance as newer records. it's best to try to curb recency bias.

also with regards to giving it time, we're probably going to be in the middle of the pack. we won't rush out our decade list in December like many publications gunning for the clicks will (ahem, P4K, CoS), but we're not gonna wait 2 years either. For reference, the 2000-2009 decade list was posted in June 2010, so expect a similar timeline here. Think summer 2020.

I'm almost certain if this came out 2010 or 2011 I'd still be repping it

Another point: longevity isn't the primary factor on which I'm ranking albums on my decade list. I'd much rather go with "intensity of connection," how hard I fell for a record. I'll openly admit that most of the albums in my top ten I haven't listened to regularly since 2016 or so. They were perfect for a certain stage of my life but I don't actively need to hear them anymore.
