Didn't think Washed Out would get all the way to fourth. Cool.

"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."

Yeeeaaaaahhhhh...so much for Strange Mercy not receiving any love. iYup knows 3rd century Mediterranean anthropology, but he can't count.

Kaputt IS a better album than Hurry Up We're Dreaming, if only marginally, so I'm cool with this.

Thanks for running this, Peef Ericson. You done good. As did the rest of us, lack of House of Balloons aside.

Wow, I'm incredibly surprised at that placement. I don't remember seeing it in the top ten of any list besides mine, but it must have been there somewhere.

Indeed, indeed. I really thought that M83 had the thing wrapped. It had so many first-place votes. I've got to say that I am really pleased with Destroyer at number one. It's a highly-deserving album.

Nice work, Peef. We owe you some drinks.

Seriously though, as gump and LM said, how fucking good are we?

 
Pretty good. Watch the Throne at 14 is unacceptable.

Also pretty damn surprised to see Collapse Into Now that high, though I never listened to it myself.

I'm sure the Utahn internet blackout on any webpage containing "suck it" was also a contributing factor.

Thanks for tallying the results, Peef

Really? Kaputt? I still don't get it. Still a great list. Thanks, Peef.

LOL @ Radiohead's placement.

Also, if you haven't heard Tom Waits' album, punch yourself in the face. If you have, and didn't include it on your list, stab yourself in the ear with a pencil.
