2010 Year End List Mentions

These are records that show up in various year-end lists. Anthologies and reissues have been (mostly) weeded out, moved here. Those in blue are ones I have in more/less final form. Those in green I have as stripped down promos or don't have but have managed to hear somehow. The numbers in {} are the number of mentions. Once I've gotten far enough I'll start sorting by mentions. Finally I have some notes. Not every mention is noted, but some of the more significant ones are. To decode them, see the legend at the bottom.

Note: File has been frozen as of Jan. 24, 2011.

Sub-Lists

Some breakdowns by genre (initially just jazz). In many cases these are incomplete, partly because this was an added feature, partly because they're hard to verify.

Lists Consulted

During the year, I collected grades/ratings from various sources. They were generally listed using Metacritic conversions, which made it easier to pick them up from Metacritic. At this point, the results were listed in order: Metacritic(score), publication ratings; select critic grades, with myself (TH) last. The publication ratings were hit-and-miss, but at least started to provide an idea of what is going on.

When year-end lists started to appear, I started to rewrite the lines. I kept the old counts as seeds, and started adding the year end list rankings at the head, in braces. List mentions are simply counted; there is no weighting (which would overwhelm my ability to do this list with this technology).

Metacritic's 2010 album list was consulted Nov. 20-23 for all records with Metacritic scores of 61 and better (695 albums), as well as for selected albums lower than that.

Year-end lists. Where three numbers are listed (e.g., 10/30/100) the first are listed by place (1-10), the second by abbrev only, the third are counted but not noted. Genre or sub-lists also noted:
