It's a really solid album. Very chilled.

On that note, let's get started with the big awards.

Here are three honorable mention categories I just made up:

Most Points of Any Album without Three Votes: Charli XCX - True Romance (23 points, 2 votes)

This is, I think, the first time I've run this where my arbitrary three votes thing didn't come into play. All of the actual top thirty point totals had three votes. Charli XCX lost the number 30 tiebreaker due to having one less vote than the other 23 point album.

Most Votes without Making List: Atoms for Peace - AMOK (20 points, 7 votes)

I think the most anyone gave this album was five points.

15 Points/1 Vote Albums: Paramore - Paramore and Mogwai - Les Revanants Soundtrack

Paramore was actually the first album voted for in this thread, and it was the only vote it got.

Also...

STATS ARE FUN
Total Lists Submitted: 24
Total Albums Voted For: 121
Albums with Only One Vote: 68

Call me crazy, but back when this came out there was a pretty positive response, and I thought this would figure higher. Did the disappointment of Part 2 taint Part 1's memory?

I still think it's a great, great album, but as the year went on a lot of other stuff crept to the foreground and I stopped coming back to it. Part 2 being dog shit may subconsciously be a factor in it not making my list, I dunno. 2013 was just a ridiculously strong year. I left off a ton of albums I absolutely adore.

At the time it came out, not much else had really grabbed me. It got overshadowed by a heap of shit as the year went on... I actually never listened to part two.
