It’s funny. I think of all of these as HearYa type artists except for the National, which I still don’t think is great despite the wide-spread adoration. Otherwise the entire fifty does a great job of reflecting the great music of this year and the tone of the site, which is all I’d ever ask. Happy New Year!
