The Absolute Powerpop: Top 75 по итогам 2014 года

  • 03.01.2015
  • 913

Специализированные интернет-ресурсы, посвященные музыке Power Pop, по традиции подвели итоги минувшего года. Оглядываясь назад, можно проанализировать эти результаты и сравнить их с тем, что было, например, годом ранее. 

The Absolute Powerpop: Top 75 по итогам 2014 годаУже не первый год автор авторитетного блога The Absolute Powerpop Стив Ферра (Steve Ferra) отказывается от привычного когда-то рейтинга ста «самых достойных», ограничиваясь куда меньшим количеством позиций. Вместо ста коллективов в рейтинге названы всего 75 – авторов лучших пластинок года. В прошлый раз уважаемый блогер обратил внимание на тенденцию – в музыкальном творчестве превалировали сборники. А в этот раз заметил, что музыканты особенно активизировались к концу года: «В последние 3-4 месяца года появилось немало отличных дисков». И все же несмотря на то, что только за сентябрь у него набрался топ-50, он продолжил традицию прошлого года.


The Absolute Powerpop: 

EN I was originally set to do a top 100 as I usually do, but as in 2011 I've pared down down the list to 75, as my first run-through of what I listened to last year only yielded 86 titles, and rather than pad it with 14 that I didn't deem "top 100 worthy", I scaled it back to 75. And it's a good thing that the last 3-4 months of the year brought us quite a few excellent discs because this would have been a top 50 around September 1.
