Re: EOY 2018 Albums Spreadsheet Updates

Unsurpringly, his recent political statements seem to have been the last straw with the media. If it's irreparable, I wonder how badly it will affect his 2010s releases in the AOTD polls. Fans of albums like MDTF could end up frustrated by the fallout.

From my understanding, it was released only as a movie in 2016 and wasn't actually released as an album until this year. Regardless, there are plenty of other choices I'm mulling over putting forward.

It's a label debut that has sold well and outside of the RYM-core followers it's generally well-regarded ( see metacritic ). That it became AMG's choice pick isn't too surprising. It's just disappointing that they felt the need to downgrade S2. AMG possibly did it just to differentiate their ratings...

Much like Sleater-Kinney, Aaliyah and Missy had made their mark before the turn of the century so they were likely ineligible. Some people may point to Beyoncé as having been around since the 90s with Destiny's Child but she really didn't make a name for herself as a solo artist until the early 00s.
