I just counted and they gave exactly 50 albums BNM this year....why wouldn't all of those releases be on the list or at least the honorable mentions...

Because that wouldn't have been "Pitchforky" enough for the team at Pitchfork.

It's probably because the BNMs are individual choices, whereas the year-end lists are full-staff choices. The same reason that Bloom got a 10 from PopMatters upon release and then landed on the most disappointing list as well.

I'm pretty much ready to go, but I need Peef to give us a refresher on the point system.

Gossamer was missing as well, and it got 8.4, a BMN and one of those weirdly intrusive cover stories.

Meanwhile, some rapper named Future got a 7.8 for his album Pluto and it came in at #37.

They used the word "beautiful" when describing The Money Store.

I think GAF is right.

I think I avoided Attack on Memory because I thought it was going to be really heavy (much the same reason I avoided David Comes To Life). One listen to Stay Useless reveals that to be a mistake.

 
And before someone steps in to call that method of not listening to something silly... it is, but you can't listen to everything if your username's not LemonMelon and I needed a way of filtering through the year's releases.

If you had read my thread, though, I covered the basis of their heavy and not-so heavy sounds though

The rest of the album is kind of crap compared to Stay Useless and Fall In though.

Coblz,

Attack on Memory gets exponentially better with every listen. Don't give up on it after just one or two spins!

I just realized that I left Gossamer off my list. I'll have to review it... Probably not top 10, but somewhere between 10-20 for me.

Fall In is easily the worst on that album. Sounds like some high school punk band.

Wasted Days is one of the songs of the year.
