PROFESSIONALLY-COMPILED lists of this year’s best albums somehow have different things on them, it has emerged.
Tom Logan of Lincoln checked out best-of lists in Rolling Stone, Mojo, The Guardian and Stereogum and was puzzled by their failure to be identical.
He said: “I read my first one and thought that’s great, I’ll buy the top three albums from this list because they are objectively superior to all other music released this year.
“Then I came across this other list full of albums that didn’t even feature in the first list. What the fuck?
“Only one of them can be telling the truth.”
He added: “They should either sort these lists out so they’re all the same, or ban them. It’s a simple question – what is the best music? I demand to know.”
After consideration, Logan has decided that the Adele album must be the best one because it has made the most money.
