I know this has been on a few releases since, but it did originally come out in 2016.

Re: Oor (NL) - De 40 beste albums van de jaren '10 (The 40 best albums of the '10's)

Cave is just an artist that does so much better in Europe than he does stateside. I also find many European publications have a bit of a contrarian streak, which is why it's funny they picked Push the Sky Away, which is a well-regarded album, but not as acclaimed as either of its two follow-ups.
