A one-stop sequence of the decade’s most essential cuts.
Though it may still be too soon to declare what defined it, at the close of the 2010s, a decade in which more music was consumed than at any point before it, we’ve certainly heard our share of contenders.
But instead of some gaudy round-up, picking apart the mountain of releases we’ve heard over the last ten years and pulling threads between that may not even be fully-formed just yet, we’re opting for the only appropriate presentation of this much music in the streaming age.

From chart-toppers to underground anthems to the many invented genres of a decade that aspired to get beyond genre, there’s no corner unturned, no star unaccounted for.
