Neatorama links to a Refinery29 (who?) listicle of The Best Albums of the 2010s, and I own, sort of, two.
Let’s do this quiz style, with the ones I own bolded.
- Taylor Swift, 1989
- Billy Eilish, When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?
- Frank Ocean, channel ORANGE
- Janelle Monáe, Dirty Computer
- Robyn, Body Talk
- Lorde, Pure Heroine (which I bought in 2016
- Kacey Musgraves, Golden Hour
- Adele, 21 (although, really, I only sort of own this since it actually belongs to my oldest son who went through an Adele phase a couple years ago).
- Beyonce, Lemonade
- Rihanna, ANTI
To be honest, I’m pleased I don’t know who several of these artists are, and others I only know of from reading newspaper Web sites.
But I will say this: Of the two I do own, I can only add that Leo improved upon them.

I also own 21, and I liked it pretty well. I’ve seen some Janelle Monae performances and she interests me, but her chameleonic thing just tires me. Heard of a couple other of the ladies.
But in the modern hyper-fractured music scene, how can anyone think they can make a coherent list of “albums of the decade?”
It is whatever the 23-year-old listicle content creator says it is, which is their favorites and maybe a couple of things their older siblings listened to that didn’t suck.
Sounds about right.
