So that’s speak the question: what songs/albums blew your mind on first listen, and which on...

Re: AMF Favorite Albums and Songs of the 2010s - LIST THREAD

Just so you know, acroamor, it might be good for you to just remove my list from the rankings as of right now. It will likely change to a very drastic extent, not just like me changing around a few places but me starting from scratch.

You listed me for Malibu Ken so must have been counted, I would just expect to also be biggest fans for Mercury Rev.
You had Mercury Rev at #18 in the List Thread, which is how it is listed in my spreadsheet.
