That Yeasayer album is a favorite of mine, so it was nice to see that snag a place. I think GAF will be very mad that the Arctic Monkeys debut is that low, and frankly, I was a little shocked myself. Oh good, an obligatory P4K Lil Wayne album in a list. Moving on...Okkervil River! At least Black Sheep Boy was higher than Tha Carter II. Like Water for Chocolate, a worthy hip-hop album, finally. Seriously, Pitchfork has absolutely horrible taste in hip-hop sometimes. Case in point: Clipse, who show up soon enough afterwards. There's no way in fucking hell that Clipse album is better than Like Water for Chocolate, but I digress. Girl Talk is good too; I'm betting Feed the Animals shows up later as well.

This is going to be fun.

I wouldn't be so sure as far as GT goes. Night Ripper kicks the shit out of Feed the Animals.

BSB? Way too low. It'll be interesting to see where the other albums land.

Oh, I totally agree, but based on Pitchfork's generally shitty hip-hop tastes, that's my prediction.

Also agreed there.

I've said it before, I'll say it again: that filthy Ying Yang Twins song about showing your penis to the ladies over "Bittersweet Symphony" is the shit.

That's a pretty sick moment on the album. I love how he chops up and uses the guitar solo from "Where is My Mind?" And of course, the B.I.G. over "Tiny Dancer" is classic too.

I learned of that song from the Lonely Island parody.

I'm just happy it made it, really.

What are we thinkin will be up very high on the list? Kid A, MPP, Funeral, Illinois, Sound of Silver, In Rainbows, Yankee Hotel, Yoshimi. Probably one of those M.I.A. albums. I could see them going back and giving Is This It a really good spot. And if they give a spot to Kanye it needs to be College Dropout.

I'd be quite surprised if the top five didn't include both Kid A and Kala. Who knows, though? I'm most-curious to see how they treat ...Trail of Dead's Source Tags & Codes, which received a perfect 10.0, upon its 2002 release.

Source Tag seems to be all but forgotten in the canon, for whatever reason. It's not out of the question for high placement though.

I hear Kid A is -225 for #1.

Fleet Foxes should be up there since it was their album of '08, if I'm remembering correctly.

That's a great album. Maybe not a 10.0, but a great album nonetheless.

I only own 4 of the albums on the list so far. One of them happens to be one of my favourites of all time though. Yay for Silent Alarm.

Why are these jackasses rushing on this? Don't we have 3 months left? Kind of insulting to an upcoming release like Embryonic, no?

Nice to see the Nick Cave mention.

And I'm surprised Pretty Toney is that low?
