Thats why I don't make an end of the year list. People write this magazine articles that say things such as: 50 Greatest Albums EVER. Who are they? They are just a person with an opinion too. There is absolutely no way to determine the greatest albums. Or the greatest decade. Whats overrated to me maybe gold to you. So listen to what you listen to. But yes expect shit talking from people like me. Because everyone has an opinion
But I like end of the year list, because I don't see them as the best, but I see them as that person's favorite records, for whatever reason, which incites me to go back and check those albums because they obviously meant something to someone, if not a lot of people.
example: M.O.'s METN will be on a lot of list, including mine, and I think if someone passed it up the first time, then maybe seeing it on all those list will motivate them to hear a great record - in my opinion.
