TRUTH AND POST-TRUTH ACCORDING TO ANNUAL MUSIC CRITICS POLLS
Since 1970's, annual critics polls have influenced record sales and paved paths of popularity for a number of new artists. However, all critics lists include numerous subjective viewpoints. In my research I use statistical tools to get objective values of records in annual critics polls based on independent UK and US sources (1971-2016). I consider music press and the Internet era as well.
