This is a ranking chart that u/rocket_brown on the CityPop subreddit made to help others recommend City Pop artist to others who don't know where to start on their musical journey. Don't think of this as a "Good Music vs Bad music" type of list, but rather a Ranking of who some would take priority over recommending to someone. This is HIGHLY subjective.
