Chris,
My only real issue with this list is you guys gave Tame Impala a wholelottalove; I'm surprised they didn't make it. Also, what'd you think of Crystal Castles and Cosmogramma?

Either way, y'all do an incredible job.

Not much to complain about here. Kind of wish some Tomboy bootlegs made it, but that's probably unreasonable and entirely against company policy.

Young, why'd you smack JJ's "My Way" in the mouth and put it in solitary confinement? Are you saying it doesn't have equal right?

this list is testament to the weak year thus far. since they're aping 70s AM steely dan style mopiness, if i flipped on a classic rock radio station and heard something like ariel pink or beach house, i'd say "gross that song sucks" and change the channel. so would most of you. but oh well. on another note, no liars - sisterworld? best album of the year, in my opinion. but that's just my opinion, and everyone has one.
