Right. I know this. You should know I know this. I've been around for a long time. However, for other things, like desert island, rules have changed. Why should rules be so set in stone? Does it really matter what interference ranks as the best album of the year enough that we have to explain how we got our results and letting a little simple math get in the way...? Shouldn't threads like this be begging for participation instead of auto-DQing people for not listing to tons of albums?

I'm going to punch your stupid list in the stomach if Art Angels is not super high.

Competitive aspect. There's a lot more to this thread than determining an overall winner. In fact, a winner is only determined to encourage others to listen to it if they haven't already. Nobody participating wins anything, unless we introduce a raffle or something. Perhaps next year.

Anyway, half of these lists need to be dropkicked off a cliff for not having To Pimp a Butterfly on them.

I'm pretty sure he meant the competition between the albums, not something personal between people.

No one's list "wins" as in Desert Island.

Yeah, shit, this new Baroness album is good. I've never heard anything by them but I'll make time for the other albums.

They're all good. Enjoying the new quite a bit so far, listening to Shock Me pretty much daily.

I just got Apple Music so I'm starting to fill in some holes from this year, like Wolf Alice's album.

I've listened to that Wolf Alice album several times, it never really stuck with me.

The Hobbit movies sorta make me forget how much I used to like Lord of the Rings.

I find it interesting that Courtney Barnett is turning up all over the critics' lists but barely at all here. Personally I never found her to be remotely as clever as a lot of people were claiming.

We've only had a handful turned in.

She'll be very high on mine.

EDIT: Looks like nine have been turned in. Still a pretty small sample.

This. How could you make something so good as TLOR trilogy and then follow it up with The Hobbit trilogy? It boggles the mind.

Many people would say the same thing about Lucas.

I feel like Courtney Barnett isn't all that great; it feels like she's ripping off from so many people that it sounds like her original style and people are cheering all over her new record like NPR music does.

It doesn't boggle my mind at all. How do you turn a 300 page book into 12 hours of movie?

I had Barnett as my #3 album and Depreston as my #2 song. I can't say enough good things about her.
