Say what you will about year-end top 10 lists, their finest purpose is remembering what records you enjoyed over the course of a year.

But as far as a time capsule of what has resonated with a critic, tax attorney, or general music lover in a year, they are without equal. But in this digital age, they're also terribly antiquated.
Because if there's anything the internet needs more of, it's lists!
