2002 Pazz & Jop critical alignment ratings
420b · 13 February 03
Here are the voters in the 2002 Village Voice Pazz & Jop Critics' Poll, ranked according to the average number of other voters who voted for each of their album picks. If anyone had voted for the exact ten 2002 album winners, their rating would have been 112.8 (compared to 105.8 in 2001 and 112.1 in 2000), suggesting that last year's list might have represented a slightly weaker consensus, or a slightly less egregious collective failure of imagination, depending on your perspective. Once again, my own opinions are unpopular.
