I don't wish I did I just straight up don't like it and I accept that.

There's quite a bit I actually do like about it, but it paled in comparison to Innerspeaker for me. I didn't even ever register an opinion on it here since I was so nonplussed and didn't want to be a downer.

I do adore "Elephant" though.

I phrased that incorrectly what I meant was I had no expectations of liking it and therefore when I didn't care that much for it wasn't very disappointed

I enjoy it and I enjoy inner speaker but neither are huge favorites for me is all

I think I may have watched that PS22 kids chorus video of Feels Like We Only Go Backwards more than actually listened to the real song in 2012.

It's actually "Whore, Give This Cock Rectum", but your sentiment is noted.

Only four votes for Dirty Proj? And it's below fucking SPRINGSTEEN?

Fail, Interference.


Also, Tennis not placing at all really sucks.

Great idea with the quotes, PFan. Agent Orange's comment about Bloom being $1.99 really had me laughing.

I wish Bloom had pulled it off, but Lonerism is a worthy victor.

Tennis not making my list is a testament to how strong 2012 was and an indictment of releasing albums so early in the year.

Worth noting: if my list were canon, we'd have a tie for #1. As creator (i.e. thief of AV Club's idea) of this points system, my vote should count, damn it.

When Ashley stated somewhere that Lonerism was number one, it was literally the only time that it wasn't. There was a brief point between lists where Bloom had 105 and Lonerism had 104. Other than that, Lonerism basically led the entire way.
