I've heard one song off it so far. I really liked it. So I'll definitely be checking that one out further.

Heck, I'd like to start checking out quite a few of these albums at some point. Pretty interesting list.

You terrify the land
You are pestle and mortar
Your first love's New Order
Mother Nature's Son
King of the Everglades; population 1

I obviously would have preferred M83 at #1, but good nonetheless.

I don't get the love for Destroyer; apart from a couple of songs, my reaction to it has been meh.

Also surprised Radiohead cracked the Top 5.

Glad to see that Russian Circles and Mogwai were in the Top 30.

Have you heard this? I reckon you'd love the album.

Wow, and I almost put King of Limbs on my list because I didn't think it was going to get any love.

I must admit, I almost short changed Kaputt on points so that I could be sure M83 would win, but then it looked like M83 would be a lock. Now I see that doing so WOULD have mattered. Oh well, I would have felt like a cheater, and it's not like I don't like Kaputt...

I'm going to give myself a sizable chunk of credit for Kaputt's placement. It really underscores how important it is to make threads for bands you love instead of just keeping the discussion in Random. I realize anyone could have made that thread, but the way things have been lately, there was no guarantee.

Funny how shit comes together sometimes, ya dig?

I think that Destroyer is a more representative choice than M83. Almost everyone who heard Kaputt thought highly of it, whereas several people were less than enamored with Hurry Up. It seems as though Hurry Up either topped lists or did not appear on them at all.

Yeah, as I said in my list, your thread was my primary impetus to listen to it. Well, that and the glowing reviews that soon followed.

It will be interesting to see how we feel about these results one year from now. Looking back at my 2010 list, I can already think of several changes that I would now make to it.

Can anyone confirm or deny whether my 1,400 posts about Kaputt this year helped them get into Kaputt? And then the band as a whole?

Because we had an established M83 thread for years, M83 was quite popular here well before HUWD came out, and that made expectations a little different than for Kaputt, which was the introduction to Destroyer for several posters (myself not included, but it reignited my interest in them).

All of the love for Hurry Up fascinates me. I know I sound like I despise it, but actually I think that it is quite good, excellent even in places. But I have also seen artists lambasted around here for excess falling well short of that on Hurry Up. Is it perhaps that Gonzalez had explicitly declared his intention to make something unapologetically bombastic, and then followed through on that declaration? Ultimately, what is it that separates Hurry Up from something like Before the Dawn Heals Us?
