With four weeks still to go, Rolling Stone shows its hand for the Top 50 Albums of the Year. The lower reaches are rather interesting, but there’s a discomforting amount of mainstream label-drive choices in the Top Ten. And no sign at all of Peroxide.
You know what though? I hope all of these end of year lists (likely drafted in September and October) are all put out of joint when Adele rolls out ’25’ onto Soundcloud on Christmas Eve.
