Here is the Pitchfork Top Twenty albums of the 2010s, the grades are my opinion, and I missed one out because I don’t know it. When I’ve felt like it, I’ve added an opinion to the grade…

1. Frank Ocean – Blonde – A- – An excellent album (which works as one of two, by the way, Endless is not included)

2. Kanye West – My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy – A+ – at the least, top five album of the decade

3. Beyonce – Beyonce – A – The height of her skills

4. Kendrick Lamar – To Pimp A Butterfly – B+ – Personally, I prefer that untitled one

5. Fiona Apple – The Idler Wheel Is Wiser Than the Driver of the Screw and Whipping Cords Will Serve You More Than Ropes Will Ever Do – B+

6. Solange – A Seat at the Table – A- I saw her on this tour,. Wow – just wow.

7. Vampire Weekend – Modern Vampires of the City – A – Their best album

8. Robyn – Body Talk – Best dance album easily – A

9. D’Angelo and the Vanguard – Black Messiah – C+ – Most overrated album imaginable -“Really Love” is a masterpiece but “Really Love”does not an album make

10. Frank Ocean – Channel Orange – b+ – wow, two in the top ten

11. Grimes – Art Angels – B

12. Rihanna – ANTI – B+ – Good album , but Unapologetic was better

13. Drake – Take Care – His first masterpiece – A

14. Lorde – Melodrama – A- – It took me seeing her on stage to love her

15. Kanye West – Yeezus – A – Could well make my top ten, giving Kweezy two…

16. Joanna Newsom – Have One On Me – B

17. Sufjan Stevens – Carrie & Lowell – A – Easily his best work to date, a clear eyed Oedipal sorry and sad show

18. Kendrick Lamar – good kid, m.A.A.d. city – B+

19. Lana Del Rey – Norman Fucking Rockwell! – A-

20. DJ Rashad – Double Cup

    you need to stop with these reviews…you seem to lack musical knowledge

    the only A+ album on this list is To Pimp A Butterfly, from a pure objective angle

    Take care is a 5/10 album, objectively

    you seem to confuse “what I personally and subjectively enjoy” & “what is objectively great”
