2010: Much more indie, unsigned, less well known , and much less hip hop… back then Robyn was sas cool as now, and LCD Soundsystem had one, last shining moment.

2011: Rihanna ruled my life, but album for album it was a very strong year, though hip hop was still on the backburner, with nether Big Sean nor Jay-Z and Kanye making the cut.

2012 – Odd Future changed rap for a year, streaming changed music forever

2013 – The last great indie year and the arrival of Danny Brown and art rap is here to stay OG…

2014 – Southern trap begins to take over, there will be blood… but 2013 remains the best of the year

2015 – Some big names show up, Vince Staples, A$AP Rocky, The Weeknd -that entire r&b with hip hop qualities, is taking over

2016 – At the time it felt like a pretty good year but looking back it was missing really big albums, Bowie died and the Stones had a great year.

2017 – Album for album, a good year without a center. the arrival of Lorde, the arrival of death albums (Annie Hardy, Mount Eerie, more), Plus? Guicci’s last great album and Migos make friends.

2018 – A handful, more than a handful of ace albums, and, of course, a whole lotta black girl magic

2019 – The worst year of the decade…

Most Important Development: Streaming.

The death of indie, and the birth of art-rap and singer songwriter EDM.
