Λιστομανίας συνέχεια...

ListΠροσπερνάμε την ...τρολιά της φωτογραφίας η οποία απεικονίζει τον μέγα σταρ-πιανίστα του 19ου αιώνα Φραντσς Λιστ και επικεντρώνουμε το μάτι μας στο ζουμί. Λίστες με τους καλύτερους δίσκους της χρονιάς 2016 από μια πλειάδα έγκυρων (ή λιγότερο έγκυρων) περιοδικών. Λίγες απομένουν ακόμη, το MiC παραδοσιακά θα περιμένει να αλλάξει ο χρόνος πριν δημοσιοποιήσει τη δική του.

Γενικές τάσεις/παρατηρήσεις;
Η διαπίδυση του mainstream στο εναλλακτικό συνεχίζεται.
Οι τεθνεώτες και γενικότερα οι αναξιοπαθούντες έχουν ένα συγκριτικό πλεονέκτημα.
Η απουσία τζαζ-ποιοτικού ξεκαρφώματος (που 'σαι Καμάσι).
Κι ένα κάπως άβολο κι ενοχλητικό συναίσθημα της ανακύκλωσης μιας short-list κυκλοφοριών (και φυσικά η αναπόφευκτη (;) αγγλοσαξονο-κεντρική ματιά).
