Hopefully, some of you have already begun devouring the top-11 lists of our critics over here. If you have, you've discovered that this year we've linked each critic's list to a Spotify playlist of their picks -- which will also double as a quick seminar in which genres of music Spotify is a little spotty on. (Apologies to metal fiend Janssen McCormick.)
We also curated all 17 of those lists to create the mother of all Spotify lists: the Ultimate 2011 Playlist. It's an eight-hour, 130-song march through every song we obsessed about this year: from M83 and Yuck and Tune-Yards to Bon Iver, Nicki Minaj, and Nadia Oh. If you've got the Spotify on your computermajig, just click the link below and it'll start blasting awsm tunes straight in your face. Your NYE playlist: solved.
