We love a good magazine cover, so we’re all in when there are a bunch of them for one issue. New York’s annual “Yesteryear” issue features a look back at the last 100 years of New York music, and eight great covers. There’s Lou Reed, Frank Sinatra, Madonna and more.

We’re partial to the Jay Z one, if only because he looks like he’s seven years old.

Read New York’s ‘Year in Culture’ Issue Just for The Arguments

New York’s “Year in Culture” issue, which hits newsstands this week, is fantastic. We haven’t made it all the way through yet, but from what we’ve read, you need to buy this issue. You should also subscribe to New York, but we’ll yell at you about that later.

While the features are excellent — we recommend the piece on Timbaland by Jessica PresslerNew York’s critics also selected the year’s best in pop, movies, TV, art and more. Here’s an example of what could happen after you’re done reading the 10 Best TV Shows list:
