Re: EOY 2018 Albums Spreadsheet Updates

If Oil of Every Pearl... moves up one more spot will it be the weirdest album ever to make the top ten for its year? The biggest competition it has this decade are Shaking the Habitual and Syro. Too weird for me, but I'm inclined to think that it is ahead of it's time and that I'm not ready for it ...

Re: EOY 2018 Albums Spreadsheet Updates

Double Negative will feature on my YE list, but, at present, I imagine it ranking somewhere between #5 & #8 amongst Low's albums for me in the longer term. So, yes the high ranking on critic YE lists is surprising. Ditto Arctic Monkeys, I just can't imagine how TBH&C could be thought better...

Finally, for the first time (that I've seen) "Tropical Fuck Storm: A Laughing Death In Meatspace" appears on a list.

Also, I must say that Let's Eat (, - it hurts to not include the comma) Grandma is appearing too low on the critics lists.

The wild cards benefit the years when more people vote, and those tend to be the earlier years of the polls.
