I’ve been hoping Pitchfork would do a list based on its readers’ input for a long time, and now we’re doing it. I filled one out here. I stopped ranking them (the part of list-making I always hate doing) and called it quits after staring for too long. I wish all the blank covers would magically fill in.
Making these lists is always vaguely embarrassing. I always wind up looking at the list and thinking that there’s too much of this or not enough of that and am I really this boring, but then I remind myself that these are just my favorite things at the moment and I shouldn’t take it so seriously.
