Pitchfork has released their Top 200 Best Albums of the 2010s, with The Fame Monster included at #151

https://pitchfork.com/features/lists-and-guides/the-200-best-albums-of-the-2010s/

#151 Lady Gaga: The Fame Monster (2009)

At first, Lady Gaga seemed like a slightly smarter-than-usual dance-pop hopeful and nothing more. But then came “Bad Romance.” A gothic psychodrama draped around a titanic club banger, accompanied by an instantly iconic music video in which she stoically burns a man to death, the song announced Gaga as a true force to be reckoned with.

“Bad Romance” kicked off The Fame Monster, a collection of eight songs released as a deluxe edition of Gaga’s 2008 debut album, The Fame. (Yes, we know: The Fame Monster was technically released in late November 2009. But for something that cast such a long shadow over this decade, we’re making an exception.) Other than the supremely fun, Beyoncé-featuring “Telephone” (originally written for Britney Spears!), none of these songs sounded like anything else released at the time. They’re bizarre and jarring, full of references to death, dangerous sex, Hitchcock movies, and eating brains. (There’s also “Speechless,” an unabashedly retro power ballad that Meat Loaf would have killed for.) The Fame Monster’s release kicked off an arms race of pop kookiness: Suddenly, it seemed like everyone from Katy Perry to Nicki Minaj to Kesha was falling all over themselves to out-weird each other. But nobody’s freak flag ever flew higher than Gaga’s. –Amy Phillips

These lists are such a joke

They are including mainly R&B, hip-hop, alternative and indie music, and are throwing some pop classics so they don't seem too biased  :green:

For lack of comparison cause i know about 3 albums on this list (exaggerated number) Sweetener is NOT better than the fame monster... like what have they been smoking? And i‘m saying this while having the hype of seeing ariana this sunday. 
 

+ they are already making those lists when Caroline Polachek hasnt released the AOTY yet and FKA Twigs is also still releasing this year like ???
