Actually, I was kind of thinking of cutting some of the random obscure Aussie stuff that I knew wouldn't be on anybody else's list in favour of including other, more popular stuff I liked to help it out on the overall list, but you know, I wanted to include my real top fifteen, rather than my top ten plus five interlopers from the top thirty. No strategic voting and all that EYKIW shit. I don't really give a shit about "subverting" this forum's tastes Schloop-a-loop style. I just think some of the albums hyped here are rather mediocre (Tame Impala better not win this thing).

Poor Twin Shadow. Totally thought it would crack the top ten before people turned in lists.

Wow, Kendrick Lamar didn't even make the top ten? Good, but given the hype I thought he'd be top five.

And ha, if Slopsy had bothered to do a list, Alcest would've finished 16th, 44 points from 3 votes.

Pretty sure I was talking about a complete different album in my quote. Maybe not.

I expected these to be higher, and they should have been.
