End Of Year Critic Lists





A US publication based in New York that polls up to 300 critics for their end of year lists. Considered the last word in music criticism. Album lists start at 1971. Singles and tracks from 1979. EP listings from 1981 to 1994.

Many Thanks To Jeff Brown in Toronto who supplied most of the '70's, '80's & '90's listings.
