Also, I just realized that I forgot Tame Impala, so I'm going to have to resubmit my list later tonight.

Thanks for the heads up. Someone in Australia submitted a list and I put it into the spreadsheet before having to scrap it because he forgot an album. I won't name names but he has the same name as me and is a lot taller.

I thought it was a great pop album. It's not earth shattering or anything, but I really enjoyed it all the way through.

Friggin'.

Surely you can wait for him to correct it before declaring the final list?

I've known my real name for a few years now. It's useful information.

1) Kendrick Lamar - To Pimp A Butterfly 15
>> Shit's fire…yo.

2) Wolf Alice My Love Is Cool 12
>> WOLF ALICE

3) Kamasi Washington - The Epic 10

4) My Morning Jacket - The Waterfall 9
>>Definitely a favorite of theirs. Hoo boy.

5) Twin Shadow - Eclipse 8
>>I'm just going to have to reserve myself to the fact that I adore stupidly bombastic music... A lot.

6) Brandon Flowers - The Desired Effect 8
>> "This is, at the moment, my least favorite Killers released anything, and that includes Big Talk, but I don't think that's going to last….I think relistens will improve it…I hope…I mean…oh dear…

UPDATE: I won't erase the above, but I couldn't feel further from this now, definitely enjoy this. It's weak, but not THAT weak, and has much higher highs than I initially gave credit for."

7) Viet Cong - Viet Cong 7
>> It's like if Interpol and David Bowie had a baby that loved The Horrors. If there's a better album out this year, that would be fantastic news.

8) Westkust - Last Forever 6

9) Churches - Every Open Eye 6

10) Joanna Gruesome Peanut Butter 5
>> Listened to everything they released in a day, it's all so great. Exactly my alley, too.

11) Susanne Sundfor - Ten Love Songs 4

12) Lupe Fiasco - Tetsuo & Youth 3
>>If this album had been about two or three tracks shorter, it would've been my number one for the year. The beats are great, the lyrics are pretty much phenomenal across the board. I anticipate this actually rising after a few more listens, as I grow more accustomed to its slightly unwieldy length.

13) Cheatahs - Mythologies 3

14) Sufjan Stevens Carrie & Lowell 2
>>I guess thinking this sounds like Illinois isn't a good enough a critique, so it definitely needs a relisten.

15) Tame Impala - Currents 2
After careful deliberation, and relistens to each album, essentially what it came down to between Tame Impala and Pinkshinyultrablast was this: The former was something new and exciting from a band I hate, the latter was something completely up my alley, but that moved me on no emotional level. So, in choosing between an album I liked and was surprised by, that made me feel things and an album that I enjoyed but left me cold, I went with the former.

I also still feel like the name pinkshinyultrablast connotes one kind of music, and this wasn't it.

Also, also, I really wish we could tag people on this forum.

Thanks, you guys. We are now at 21 lists. In years' past we normally end up around 24 or 25 so I'll hold off for a couple of more days.
