With 2017 ending, we wanted to see what the past year in music looked like, whether there were any discernible trends in ratings or genres. Pitchfork has been a staple in online music reviews since the inception of online music reviews. The site creates an incredible amount of content, while still being considered the "benchmark" rating for new albums.
We crawled through their entire website (sorry, Pitchfork) grabbing relevant data for each album produced this year. After cleaning and modelling the data, we visualized it with dc, D3 and crossfilter,. These helped us make the visualization more interactive and powerful.
