So, why did I make this?

For a few reasons – I need it for a project I’m working on, I like to participate in a few online music communities which have reader polls, a few people might be interested in listening to the tracks, but, if I’m being honest, mainly out of sheer force of habit.

Why no blurbs this year?

I have limited time for writing, and it’s better spent elsewhere

Why 75 tracks? Why not 100 or 50 or 20?

I edited a couple of thousand tracks down to “just the ones I love” – that’s what we have here.

Why are they ranked?

I planned not to rank them, but it proved easier to edit them this way – and I needed to submit ranked lists for a couple of polls.

No Blackstar?

Saving that for next year
